Gameplay tips and progression

Alrighty, 1st of all you need to play through to 2-3 and get the DBS. 2-3 is the Dragon God boss stage, but he is pretty easy if you keep from getting hit with his fists or flame breath. To the left right up at the start as you appraoch him, is the DBS. You will need Pure White World Tendency to draw the sword, the DBS weighs a whole 20.0, so have the extra item wieght space for it. You can equip it as soon as you raise your STR to 30, i know, some of you guys think you dont need all of 30 STR to wield it cause ya wanna 2h it, well u do 'cause u need to 1h it for the 2hit speed combo.
Yes, using it 1-handed IS better, but this is where your armors and rings come in handy. Using the Assassin's Mask combined with Dark Silver Armor or Gloom Armor with the Ring of Great STR at 35+ Endurance will allow you the wield it and still quickly move, sprint, and roll. And for faster stamina regen. use the Eternal Warrior's Ring. If ya wanna get all the more less stamina hold up, you could use the Ancient Armor set from Old King Doran, because it doesn't hault stamina regen. If you are more into the def armors, use Brushwood Armor.
OK, assuming you got all these things, lets start with combat. Using the DBS 1h is better because earlier I brought up the 2hit speed combo. As you probably noticed, this sword is slow as heck. Using the R2 atk, right as is hits the ground, simply press the standard R1 atk. Its so awesome because the follow up atk is so fast, like a 1 sec. fast. You should have enough Stamina to quick roll away, then with the EW Ring, quickly regen. your Stamina and now your back to inflict more PWNage. This simple tactic could kick big @ss in PvP also due to the speed of the 2nd atk and then quick roll away to make sure you aren't easily hit. Second Chance is also a great help, espicially in NG+ and PvP, as enemies clearly become several times stronger and could kill you faster. Also you could go ahead and +5 it for way more damage and STR stat scaling.
