This is my little guide to tips for brotherhood of the blade.
1.Save frequently. You'll never know whats around the next corner.
2.A good way to get great items is to get past the part where you invade western catacombs and get an item. Once you complete this (you have the item) SAVE(if you don't, this wont work), exit, and restart story. The loot gets better every time. This is a great way to get a nice little headstart in the beginning of the game.
3.for alchemists, do not attemp to petrify bosses with the "stone gaze" ability.it DOES NOT work. This has caused my downfall many a time.
4.If you forget what you need to do in a quest, press 'Select' and go to the icon of the book at the top right of the screen. This is the quest journal, and it will usually tell you which way you need to go.
5.if you can't decide what to choose for statting up when you level,here is a table.
/|Strength|\This is recommended for Knights and Berserkers, because it adds damage to melee, and as an extra it adds carrying space
/|Intelligence|\Druids and Alchemists are recommended for this one. It adds to your Power limit, so you wont run out of Power in those tight spaces when there is 4 enemies on you.
/|Dexterity|\This ones all you, knights and druids. Mostly because of the act that increasesdamage on ranged weapons and special abilities.
/|Stamina|\Go for it, alchemists and berserkers. You'll need all the health points you can get.
6.You can see how fast a weapon strikes by it's weight. Redemption, for example weighs 2.0 pounds, which is a very fast striking time,which is faster than Titan, which weighs 6.0 pounds, whichc is a moderate striking time. To find out weight, scoll over an item. You'll see either 1 or 2 hands in the middle, how much gold it sells for to the left, and finnaly, next to the scale, a number such as 7.0, which is the weight of the item.
And thats about it.This took about 15 minutes to write , heh. Some people who have been playing for a while will know most of this already but I'm sure if some people read this whole thing it'll help them.
Took an extra 5 minutes looking over for typo's. Not to mention proper english.
