    Armour for a Conan Build?

    Post by IV_Mark_VI on Wed Aug 29, 2012 2:57 pm

    Wanting to play as a 'barbarian'.

    Looks are most important. That being said:

    Large upper body
    Bandit chest
    Logan's Gloves maybe
    Legs I don't know yet.
    Helmet: perhaps the Royal Helm dropped by the fire blacksmith.

    Weapons: Great Axe, BattleAxe, BroadSword.
    Weight: Always fast roll.

    No magic. Vit/end/high str/ dex

    Anyone have suggestions on armour, weapons, or a build selection?

    Spoiler:
    Gough's Armor when DLC comes out would be perfect.

    I don't know anything about the DLC, except that the DWGR is fixed/nerfed (thank god).

    And I would prefer to keep it that way.

    @Pesth: that build looks awesome! The poise + great axe sucks, but who cares when you look wicked.

    You could also try this

    57 poise, but a flippin conan would be... humm... different :suspect:

    No. This is for style. DWGR does not fit with a Conan build at all. Justifying something just to get a better pvp build isn't my style. Just like Eagle shield + a dude named Iron Tarkus was lame.

    I wonder if the Hollow Soldier armour chest would look good...

    Great Axe + no poise = epic.

    Think I'll have to invest in STR right away, then switch to END.

    you could also try the battle axe which should fit the build better.

    I pumped up dex to 40 because of the broadsword scalling, but if he trades it with a battle axe he will have 30 more points to spend in wathever he wants...

    Hmm. Debatinging ATT of 10 to get 'Barbarian Rage' (power within).

    Anything else you can think of? I know there's the 'real' Conan (Howard original version) which was realistic as far as his stories go, and then there's the Arnold influenced Conan in a loin cloth.

    In dark souls, I can do with a lot of over the top, especially to make it seem like I'm a Barbarian. If only changing names on the xbox didn't cost money...

    That's why I think I'll switch out RoFaP for Havel's to have the ability to use a Great Axe and still fast roll.

    Most Conan comics/movies/pictures have him shirtless....

    ....just saying.

    Here is the Conan build I used. It was awesome fun. And at the time was a pretty challenging PvE run-through for me, (my first shieldless build iirc).
