    Need some help with my build, thx in advance!

    Post by Bieniu Ix2I on Sun Aug 26, 2012 3:51 pm

    Hi guys,

    Recently I got bored with my old, plain strenght build, so I started to think about something more... complex :p

    I'm not an expert in the field of pvp, so I would be greatful for ANY feedback.

    Here's my build template:

    Cheers and see ya online!

    Here you go, CSS won't get any faster with 45 Dex really, so I added a bit more HP and poise.

    Thx mate.

    Are 4 spell slots in your opinion enough?

    In general how do you assess this build? Is it decent, at least? :p

    Yes it's a good Dex/Int. You could add 1 more spell slot for another CSS but I usually won't go past NG+.

    Neither would I, I guess.

    One more question, as for the weapons suitable for such pvp build, is there anything you would recommend?

    I'm guessing you'll buff the BK and then use the kat as backup? You could also menu swap a Moonlight Horn if things get serious.

    @ Forum Pirate

    Thx!


    @WyrmHero

    Moreless, that's it.

    I was also thinking about changing the katana for some thrust weapon, rapier probably?

    I'd also recommend the dagger over the bandits knife, its faster.

    As for thrust weapons, I'd say the moonlight horn with 40 int, though the sks might be better. I don't do spears much.

    all I have so far. the aesthetic limits your build.(although I totally respect that choice.)
    I usually find 4 slots to be a chore to navigate on any mainly up close fighting build. 3 is my ideal but there are uses for all the spells you have so I guess.

    BKS or any BK weapon could be nice for that.

    Now I can see that in pvp no one gives a damn about wearing whole sets or looking "cool" - nice thing to know.

    Again, as more experienced pvp players, do you think that the pve build after some (like you suggested) changes will be successful in pvp? Or should I rather leave it for pve and focus on running Dex/Int?

    I know that some of my questions might be naive or "lame", but atm I do not have much time to test anything thoroughly myself, and I'd like to have quite decent pvp character till the DLC comes out.

    Untrue I have run a full darkwraith setup but it is a handicap. and I like my current setup aesthetically although it is mechanically good too.
    However we were telling you what was mechanically superior since appearance is a personal preference. (Wyrm would be no good at appearance advice I mean look at his avatar winking JK bro silly )
    Basically not giving a damn about appearance is a good way to start once you gain some experience you can choose to favor appearance over mechanical superiority.

    And I personally think your PvE build is perfectly viable. even if it isnt my style silly

    Xanthous Crown gives it an original look, that's for sure big grin

    Anyway, I've made up my mind - I'll leave the strenght build for pve and try Dex/Int Hybrid, applying some of your ideas happy

    Thx for advice guys!

    How to adapt? :p

    Post by Bieniu Ix2I on Sun Dec 09, 2012 5:50 pm

    Evening guys,



    Well, I've been offline for a while, just enough to miss the patch. I went online just couple of days ago to find a few disturbing changes (mask of the father, dark wood ring etc.) which destroyed my previous pvp strength build...


    Would you mind supporting my with just a few ideas how to adapt? :p

    I haven't played pvp since the update, so I have no idea what are the tendencies now...

    Here are my stats:

    SL 120 Warrior

    Vit: 45
    Att: 14
    End: 46
    Str: 50
    Dex: 18
    Res: -
    Int: -
    Fai: -


    I'd be grateful for any hints happy


    Cheers!
