I have never played the first game so please pardon my ignorance. Here's my issue. I know that when a weapon is damaged, it can get broken if you keep using it. Additionally, the damage is immensely reduced on a weapon nearing its destruction. I am no stuck at a bonfire, and my only weapon is severely damaged, I barely do any damage. Do I have to start my game over or do I have to some how find a merchant and fist fight my way through?
