Gee thanks guysI was gonna say naming it gives away its location. But yeah.
[...]So next time you play, take a second to look at the corner of your screen when equipping a new piece of armor. It should show your equipment load and carrying capacity (it'll say something like "25/60"). The less you wear, the faster your stamina recovers, the more nimble you generally are and the faster/better you roll (following the 25/50/100% tresholds above). The higher your Endurance stat, the higher your max carrying capacity is and the more or heavier stuff you can wear without it affecting your movement.
And the best advice I can give you is to play a bit more strategically and creatively, Verb. Sure, you can poke your spear at a knight from behind your shield for a whopping 13 damage a hit and eventually wear him down while losing a fair bit of estus yourself. But it's always worth looking at what else can you do.
For one, you should always consider the type of enemy you're fighting. Dark Souls is very realistic in this aspect. Enemies with exposed flesh are generally weak to things like fire and slashing / thrusting attacks, while heavily armored enemies typically suffer more from blunt strike damage and lightning. Two handing a blunt weapon like a mace is likely to do a lot more damage to a knight than your spear is.
Secondly, the environment can often really help you out too. For example, the knight you're fighting can easily be made to follow you a little so you can plunge attack down on him from a higher ledge for good damage. Or, you'll notice that he's close to a deep drop himself. This black knight has a bunch of moves that will send him flying forward or leaping backwards. It's entirely possible to trick him into falling off the ledge to his death without much effort (which is what speedrunners of the game used to do).
Finally and most importantly, you might want to consider rolling more.
How have you not finished the game already?
