I’m a wretch so I got my uchi from the dungeon
My advice for Margot is pick a weapon that scales with your main stat and get it to +3 or +5 by exploring the world for resources
From playing these games I can always count on two things being available shortly after the start: a morning star, and the uchi. Definitely the type of tips and hints you wanna see at this point is where to find x bread and butter item. I do really like using whatever stand-ins I can find until then though. I had the demons fork before I ran and got my uchi. Tip for skeletons: just run past them. They respawn so freaking quickly.
I may be spreading myself too thin as I always do in these games on my first try. I have 18 dex, 14 str, 16 int. Int is almost totally useless, I just like having access to spells. In one of the areas I mentioned earlier there are many magical items, there I found a bow and matching arrows that do magic damage, so at least int can benefit that. But I think since I’m committed to uchi, it would have been smarter to put those 6 points into Arcane, since that improves bleed damage, and bleed has been super effective against enemies with giant health pools, as it is meant to be.
To be honest the respec option from dark souls 2 was wonderful. Since this game is the first to let you edit your appearance mid-game, I could see respeccing perhaps making a comeback as well…
Anyways margit was a breeze because of how much exploring I did. And godwin isn’t far behind, I’ve gotten pretty close to defeating him.
