Soulsborne SL1/BL4 Guidelines

Roles are obtainable for all Soulsborne games. Click the list below to go to the different game guidelines (or Index).

Dark Souls I and Dark Souls: Remastered are both allowed and have the same requirements.

Please remember to check necessary global requirements (e.g. recording for a legend run). Read the Index page.

DS1 & DS1:R - SL1 Requirements

For SL1 Champion we require all bosses to be defeated with screenshots/videos of the following:

As long as the run allows it, cheesing Bed of Chaos and Ceaseless Discharge is fine.

If you used any boss souls for items, show them as well for proof. It is strongly recommended to not use boss souls just for souls, as you are effectively destroying your own SL1 proof.

DS1 & DS1:R - SL1 Resources

Generally, Reinforced Club is your main weapon for most if not all the game. Eventually it is recommended to upgrade it to a Chaos Reinforced Club -and possibly a Lightning Reinforced Club if you don’t want to or can’t use Blacksmith Giant Hammer-. Using fire damage for early game and then upgrade to Chaos is fine. Mentioned before, Blacksmtih Giant Hammer is the other most recommended weapon, so alternating between them based on boss resistances is optimal.

Parallax’s General SL1 Route and Advice

Very good video guide showing routing, weapons and other stuff (even if you don’t use pyromancies this video is useful).

In-depth guide by Reddit user /r/Ridiculisk1. It includes routing and individual boss advice.
