WARNING: THIS THREAD WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS. IF YOU WANT YOUR FIRST PLAYTHROUGH TO BE SPOILER-FREE AS POSSIBLE, DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER.
Some things I've learned:
The warrior's starting shield is shite. The warrior's starting "sword" is practically useless. I do not recommend picking the warrior.
Don't piss off the dog things at the beginning of the game.
Stay away from the demon piglets in Majula.
The big white ogre thing next to the shack at the beginning of the game is guarding a useful ring.
The coffin that the big white ogre things are guarding in the tutorial changes your gender.
DO NOT JOIN THE COVENANT OF CHAMPIONS. It increases the difficulty of the game.
