    40 Vitality vs Backstab?

    Post by ApostolicC on Mon Aug 27, 2012 3:38 am

    So i noticed alot of the builds on the wiki encourage high vitality. Im just wondering is this because a high enough vitality may help defend against a backstab?(aside from the obvious defense etc etc)

    Been trying some different builds, none of which make it over 25 vitality lol but I like them and may try a new one with high vit pending.

    Higher Vit=higher chance of surviving. It matters in duels, when we don't usually heal, and when you are an invader, when you usually don't have time to heal.

    At SL99+, All my build have 50 vit. Or at the very least, about 40 Vit with the FaP ring. And 1500 often feels like not enough.

    Minimum is 50 in my opinion for most of my builds.Dark Souls does not have second chance so the hp feels much lower.Most 40 vit builds in Demon's Souls ran second chance so that's 1986 if you add in the hp with it on if they die.

    I'd say either go 8-10 or go for 30+ the middle levels seem kinda useless to me silly sure a single HR BS can kill you at 30 vit but thats life *shrugs*

    With elemental weapons your backstabs will deal extreme damage, so you don't need stats to increase a weapons damage. Because of that, Vit toons are really common. It takes the idea of having a great offense and defense. Incredibly easy to set up such a toon too, and easier to play so it's super common.

    All my builds have 40 vit, giving for 50 or more feels like a waste of points, my warrior build is the only one with 50 vit since I had nowhere else to put those points that were left.

    i agree!
    but i wont go higher than 50 vit. Only if i have some points left, and my end/att is high enough.
    50 Vit = 1500 hp
    60 Vit = 1588 hp, and imo 10 sl´s aren´t worth the 88 hp.

    The only time it is worth going higher than 45 or 50 is with the MoM and FaP. Then, the gains are better. But, still not a huge benefit unless you go really high (elemental build), since your stats are better placed into defense (endurance for heavier armor) or attacks (better buffs, better str/def, or spells/miracles/pyro).

    Depends on the build and the sl. If you're using the demon great machete, you want as much hp as possible, so 40+ is a good idea. If you're using a spear on the other hand, you can cut vit as far down as 25 fairly easily, because you have a ton of range and can turtle, but have sub par damage so boosting the damage is a better bet there.

    If someone is really determined to kill you with a backstab, no amount of vit can stop them doing so in 1 hit.

    I like 50 Vit with the FaP ring, or at least 40. 1800 HP is such an advantage.
