    SL99 Build I had in mind

    Something I cooked up for the Arena in the DLC, could use some advice on the weapon choice. I chose the Gravelord GS because it has good damage with low requirements.

    No armor advice please, those armor pieces are my signature setup big grin

    Ummm...why do you have the GLGS in the off hand? and your shield in your primary hand?

    Why 42 End if you have 5.0 weight left for fast rolling? Or did you forget to equip gloves?

    I FIXED THAT TOO


    IM FIXING EVERYTHING, MECHANIC DUBSCYTHE ON DUTY



    Edit: Anyway, I'm trying to think of something else I could add to the build, maybe taking off the arm and head armor and putting in a lightning weapon for some variety. I could also get rid of the miracles for something else because I'll mainly use those as keepaways so I can bide time for strategy or w/e.

    Edit 2: Maybe something like this? http://tinyurl.com/8s4zhka

    I'm not quite understanding the 30 faith for sunlight blade if you are using the GLGS. Is it buffable in the new dlc?

    Is it not buffable? I didn't know, I assumed it wasn't because it doesn't deal magic damage.

    There are some unique weapons that are no buffable (actually most aren't), the Gravelord Greatsword is indeed one of them.

    Yeah, the Great Lord Greatsword is made from a boss soul and can't be buffed. If you want to stick with it then the Bastard sword I find to be complimented very well by buffs.

    You should just get 20str and 16 dx and go with th obsidian sword. Im gonna use I for my night's watch build since it fits perfectly with the lore of the books.

    I'm tempted to, but at the same time the swing speed is incredibly slow.

    It's only the second swing.

    Hmmm, I dunno... I've always really wanted an excuse to actually use the Gravelord Sword.

    Here's an SL99 build I'd potentially make: http://tinyurl.com/9sgd8r4 (or: http://tinyurl.com/9k22hbc ).

    I've always been a fan of halberds but they have always felt a bit sluggish. Which of these four would you guys say is the least cumbersome?

    Halberd

    Gargoyle's Halberd

    Giant's Halberd

    Black Knight's Halberd

    out of all of them the halberd and garg halberd are the best, the halberd outdamages the garg halberd but its very minute, try them out dude theyre amazing on a warrior build.
