I mean if you're doing it primarily for your own experience then there would be jack shit felt difference between SL1 and SL10.Heh, i was just thinking instead of doing a SL1 run to start as a confessor and make a SL10 run instead, mixing challenge and LARPing at the same time.
I know the prestige is in the SL1 challenge run but i'm also kinda itching of playing as a paladin again given the insane amount of faith based shit that's in the game. It's like i picked the wrong game to make an exception to my rule of always starting as a paladin first. I just saw the reward for the Elden Beast i just want to use that shit now.
I also want to make a character that i can take to NG+ as well. I finished the game at SL150 mostly to check out how the end game multiplayer was like with my bleed dude and i have no intention to go to NG+ with him as i think there's nothing to progress from there. The build is pretty much over at SL150 and aside for NG+ being harder i feel there's actually no reason to bother.
But if i finish normal game at SL10 i can then start leveling in NG+ and eventually end up with at least one toon that has collected everything in the game.
On the other hand there's nothing a confessor gets that you couldn't just buy from shops during your SL1 run and use in NG+. Confessor armour can be bought, the shield they get and the broadsword can too. I think they start with urgent heal and flame sling. A level 1 wretch can cast both of these. You'd be a confessor, just a wretched SL1 confessor. You could spend all your runes from the first run on boiled crab then enter NG+ with no runes. I think you'd have more fun if you sold all the gear you'd picked up beforehand too and waited to find it during your adventure.
You'd probably hit way above SL10 after killing your first enemy. Not sure if you've tried the wretch start but the first 10 levels come very fast in NG. In NG+ probably 1 enemy would take you to level 30 or something.
So you'd get your challenge run prestige and your NG+ roleplaying run without really compromising either.
