    Hey Tai.

    Well the type of weapon depends really on your playstyle. Personally I used the Drake Sword for awhile until I got lucky and had a Black Knight Sword drop. if you're looking for raw power at a early to mid game lvl then it will do you right. The only bad thing is there are only a few chance to get one. What point are you at in the game now? I see you're SL37 so you could be in a few places now. I am currently SL54 and have quite a few extra things I could drop you if you get to that point. I have some decent weapons that are not top of the line anything that I have gotten multiples of.

    You can get out of Blightown very easily, just go up the elevator to the right of the bonfire before you went to fight Quelagg.

    Now about your weapons, you are definitely going to need to upgrade your weapon, considering Sens Fortress is a hard as shit. But to be honest, it doesn't matter what weapon you use, just learn from you mistakes and learn how to counter your enemies attacks and you can get through no big deal.

    The best thing I could say is, that if you explore Sens Fortress you'll come across a Lightning Spear, it's quite strong so roll with that for a while.

    Good luck, Sens Fortress has devoured many gamers into the depths of utter frustration

    your stats are actually pretty similar to mine and i'm actually working my way through blighttown right now

    i agree with the comment above about the lightning spear, my friend who is also playing the game has been using that weapon since he found it and he's almost near the end

    personally i've been sticking with the regular axe, however i'm at +5 now and debating if i'll turn it to divine or magic, or go a different route
    not quite sure yet what i want to do

    Lighting weapons in general deal comparable damage to other stat specialized weapons, without the need for wasted STR, DEX, FAI, INT, etc.

    Personally, I went with a VIT/END/FAI build, and used Lighting Spear +5 for the vast majority of the platinum.

    Pretty much, this. Elemental weapons will easily carry you through NG. Stat-based weapons really don't start to be worth it until you get up in the soul levels in NG+ and beyond.

    Hello If all you want to do is rush Platinum I found a high intel build got me through a lot of the trickiest parts. Invisibity let's you cruise past lots of tough spots and homing crystal soulmass let's you stay out of most bosses reach while dealing quite high damage. You will get Big Hat Logans best spells in Dukes archives and also be sure and get his catalyst after beating Seath.

    The dragon weapons (Drake Sword especially, low stat requirement) are very good for starting out. Eventually, you'll want other weapons, as the dragon weapons doesn't scale with stats. If you're doing a dexterity build, the Uchigatana is very good. Either buy it from Shiva of the East in Blighttown (when you're in the Forest Covenant) or kill the undead male merchant in the Burg. Lightning Spear is gained from the Mimic in Sen's Fortress, and if you upgrade it a bit it's a beastly weapon. Don't care much for spears myself, too little reach for my taste. Although the most important advice you can ever get, is to upgrade your weapons!It's very cheap to upgrade normal weapons to +5 (and with some grinding in Blighttown, to +10), and it makes a heap of difference. As I started with the Wanderer class, I upgraded the Scimitar to +10, then ascended it to Quelaag's Furysword. The fast attack and high damage is great, and you need "only" 10 Demon Titanite to max it (and 10 humanity for even higher damage).
