I've got a couple cool looking weapons. Some axe that is 380 damage but I need 50 strength to wield it. Is it worth me farming to level up to 50 strength? I just beat the Gaping Demon in the Depths. I enjoy joining other peoples games to fight the bosses.
I assume you have the Dragon King Greataxe. I did the same thing, I had someone help me kill the gaping dragon and they cut off the tail for me.
I went with a strength build just to be able to wield this weapon on my first play through. I didn't farm souls just for strength but did a gradual strength level up. It is a cool weapon but has a slow attack speed. I also think there are some better weapons out there for a strength build. I just couldn't imagine farming the amount of souls needed to get to level 50, considering you are still early in the game, just to use a weapon. But, that is whats awesome about the game, do what works for you and see where it takes you.
You play on PS3 right?
