Gameplay tips and progression

Grab the Crescent Falchion +1 in 4-1 and work your way through the game (you may also get the Dragon Long Sword +1 in 2-2). Level up your Vitality to at least 20 and then proceed to meet the other stats (have second chance as a priority). Remember to collect the mausoleum key from Ostrava to get the Demonbrandt so you may forge the Northern Regalia with the Soulbrandt from Allant (under the nexus).

The earliest you will only see yourself using the Northern Regalia is at NG+ and beyond, so keep using the Dragon weapons or the Falchion until you get the Northern Regalia.

To keep your Northern Regalia at top performance, maintain your Character Tendency so that it is pure black/white. If your CT is pure black and you wish to go to pure white, your Northern Regalia will weaken as your tendency shifts away from pure. Because of this, your Dragon weapon will be more useful to you the more closer your Character Tendency is to neutral.
