      Survivability for me is about 15 vigor (mostly offline play) embered leaves 730 odd HP which is reasonable. Then you can just go from there putting into your build stats

        I just met a full Havel, I did around 2000 DMG to him and that reduced him to about half his HP. Is this possible or is he cheating? (No healing factors were involved)

          i am worried about something, i leveled up my vigor to probably 17 and my health bar expanded(which were good news) but after i died maybe 2 times the health bar shrink pretty small , like when you start a new game, so. anyone knows what should i do to expand it again? and if so, how? and does this mean i wasted my souls leveling up the vigor? i would be so thankful if you could help me

            Max HP30 Jun 2016 15:30  

            Max hp ive managed to get with life ring plus 2, favor plus 2 is 2048HPWith prisoners chain it may go up a few points but the trade off isn't worth it if you are tryin to be tank. With 2048 HP you can get more out of armor and rings of steel protection. Tearstones and morion blade work well with 2048. Downside is that your damage will be significantly weaker and it's debateable whether the 49 extra point investment into life to reach 99, is worth it. Up to you.

              LOW HP14 Jun 2016 05:40  

              I swear I've had the same HP since i started the game.. I'm at the part where i fight the abyss watchers. i figured out going back to the fire shrine and talking to the lady and increasing your strength will raise HP but is that the only way? i feel like everyone has a fat bar of HP and here i am with super low HP?

                Take the Knight, dump all points into vigor and upgrade the long sword to max using raw, then you are good to go.
