Get the Zweihander
You can get this weapon only a few minutes after starting the game in theory if you are efficient, but wait until you have your mount and 3500 Runes in stock. Upon exiting the tutorial, travel south to reach the Tearful Peninsula (check our maps as needed). You have to go to the southwestern part of the area, to the Ascetic Merchant's Hut . At this price, it's an excellent deal. He is probably one of the best merchants in the game, since he has other highly desirable products. You should come back later with more runes to buy his Stoneblade Keys, his lantern (which saves you from having to hold a torch) and later still, the sacrificial branches, which will help you not to lose a large amount of runes by dying in a secluded corner.
Wield a two-handed weapon
Let's take this opportunity to re-explain a fundamental point of the gameplay, since this weapon is made to be wielded preferably with two hands, and it's not very intuitive, since it has been modified compared to Demon's Souls, Dark Souls and the other FromSoftware games. Now, if you want to wield a two-handed weapon, just pressing Y/Triangle is no longer enough. You have to press Y + RB or Triangle + R1 for the weapon in the right hand. Or, Y + LB or Triangle + L1 for the off-hand weapon, depending on the type of pad used.
- Note in passing that this also allows you to change the weapon used on horseback, if you prefer to cast spells for example. You cannot wield a two-handed weapon while mounted.
- It is also not possible to go from one to two hands in the Round Table .
