    Paladin Cosplay Coop/PVP build

    Post by Rona on Tue Aug 21, 2012 2:13 pm

    Currently looking to do a Cosplay Leeroy build and wanted any tips. First build is this:

    http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?b=Y2xlcmljLDMwLDE1LDQwLDUwLDE4LDExLDgsMzAsMCw0OCw0OCw0NSw0OCwyNSwzLDc3LDAsMTI5LDE2MSxub3JtYWwsbm9ybWFsLG5vcm1hbCxub3JtYWwsMCw0Nyw1Myw1NywwLDAsMCwwLDAsMCwwLDAsMCw0LHdvb2Rlbix3b29kZW4sd29vZGVuLHdvb2Rlbg==

    I figured 2hand the mace and have shield if needed. Faith to 30 for spells and 50 strength in case I want to go super tank and bust out Havel's Shield.

    Other build is this:
    http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?b=Y2xlcmljLDI4LDE1LDQwLDMyLDE4LDExLDgsNTAsMCw0OCw0OCw0NSw0OCwyNSwzLDYzLDE2MSwxMjksMCxkZXZpbmUsbm9ybWFsLG5vcm1hbCxub3JtYWwsMCw0Nyw1Myw1NywwLDAsMCwwLDAsMCwwLDAsMCw0LHdvb2Rlbix3b29kZW4sd29vZGVuLHdvb2Rlbg==

    Use a Divine Greataxe with higher faith.

    Any tips would be greatly appreciated. This is the first time I've built a character myself and I'm pretty new to PVP so advice would be great!

    18 dex is a waste of points, you're better off putting it in Vit or end. I have a leery build that the same as your first build but only 8 dex since I have no need for it and one handing the grant screams badass

    Agreed. The only thing you should have your Dex that high on a Faith build for is to be able to use the Darkmoon Bow. Mind you that's not a bad idea for a Faith build, just that since you aren't using the bow on those builds it's not a good idea to have anything more than base Dex.

    Another thing is that you should probably optimize your spells. At 30 Faith you should be using Great Heal and Great Lightning Spear, not the normal versions of the spells. Also on the first build, with only 30 Faith the Canvas Talisman gives you more Magic Adjustment than the Darkmoon Talisman so using that is actually better for your spells.

    How is this a Leeroy build without Grant? Crazy talk.

    Unsure how these will do PvP. First time/newer into PvP I'd go with an easier build that's more forgiving.

    Your heavy armour doesnt' have enough poise to tank a lot of hits, and your attacks will be so slow...

    Nice one Rant. I like it!

    Did you debate going for Ring of Sun's firstborn or anything to synergize with Grants power or WoG?

    Nope, I tested the ring against fully upgraded giant set with wog and I don't think it was worth a ring slot, grant wog is really strong and doesn't need any buffs(does the crown and ring help it?)

    I'm not sure. I have never tried Grant. But I am always looking for Anti-Ganker builds, and grant seemed to fit the bill nicely. Just getting it to effectively work would be key (but getting it off, then a few WoG or other things to mix it up could work).

    I'm horrible at 2 on 1. Very rarely win, and normally, i win with a suicide move (such as a roll/poke that barely kills the host while they're ganging up on me).

    You'd have to use two or turn your back know them to make them think here getting a bs onk y to get a wog on the face(only done it like four times though but I don't hunt much)

    Im' more thinking that it would work when they're charging in pressuring. For example, if you get off a force or Grant WoG or regular and hit the host, then charge after the host, his buddy will likely fly in to the 'rescue'. Host backpedals, watch the 2nd coming in for a backstab normally, and hit them with a WoG. Then try to hit them when they come up to kill one.

    I dunno. As I said I'm terrible, but the tactic 'seems' sound in my head from how most gankers act.

    Yeah, I think I was planning on using the 18 dex for something, but forgot what. Thanks for the build suggestion and paladin build! Would you ever use the dark grain ring instead of the ring over favor? I know you'd have to drop some equipped weapons though.

    Also, thanks so much for the help. I'm still somewhat a n00b to this game so this really helps out.

    I think I'll stick with your build, it's pretty much what I had in mind anyway for PVE and COOP, which is what I like to focus on.

    Remember to have a back up weapon other than the heavy crossbow if you want, I prefer a faster weapon like the msgs since it's a lot faster than the grant. Even an elemental dagger is a really good option.
