    Can any experienced PvPers help me with my Str/Faith build?

    Post by midgeamoo on Tue Sep 04, 2012 12:53 pm

    Edit: Keep in mind that I am on the PC version, so a few items are different (E.g. Dark wood grain ring won't let me flip at 1/2 equip load, just 1/4)

    Hey, right now on my Str/Faith character I have 400,000 souls that I need to spend before I risk them by progressing and I'm currently level 80. My stats at the moment are:
    Vitality 30
    Attunement 12
    Endurance 32
    Strength 31
    Dexterity 8
    Resistance 11
    Intelligence 8
    Faith 30

    My items:
    Man-Serpent great sword +15
    Mask of the Child + any armour that keeps me under 1/4 equip load (very light armour)
    Wolf Ring + Ring of Favour and Protection (don't want to remove it just yet)
    Bloodshield/Grass Crest Shield/Sanctus
    Darkmoon Talisman

    Current spells:
    Wrath of the Gods, Darkmoon Blade (I'm wanting to base my build around Darkmoon Blade)

    What stats should I continue to level up if any?
    Also, does anybody have any suggestions for any other buffable strength weapons for PvP? I don't really want to level up dex much to use a certain weapon.
    And, any suggestions for light armour that would keep me under 1/4 equip load?

    Honestly, Dex weapons are better if you're planning on buffing your weapon. Since the buff deals its own damage, separate from your own, it's better to just spam attack with a buff weapon than a slow one.

    The only builds I see using this normally try and smack people with something like a Large Club. Unsure how a slow weapon like you have would work. If I was fighting you, I'd just dodge until your buff ran out.

    There's a couple of sites where you can plug in your gear and get a 'best armour' fit.

    Also, if you plan on being fast and light, dex weapons are normally much lighter than strength weapons.

    Yeah I normally see loads of dex/buff builds, and have played a few, which is why I wanted to do something different for a bit of fun, still it has worked ok for me so far.

    Thanks for the advice btw.

    If this is the build you want, pump vit/end/Faith. Because you can 2H your weapon, I'd focus on VIT/END first.

    If you raise your strength a little more you can 1 hand the greataxe. Aside from it being buffable I have heard good things about it. If your in the new content than that new dragon weapon is buffable. Try to look for a weapon that has hyper armor on it's attacks. That would probably be your best bet in the new content.

    if you wanna buff its better to stop at 30 faith since those extra twenty points could be spent on vit or end. what sl are you planning on stopping? if its 99 put it in end and vit, you need 40 end with str weapons since they drain your stamina so fast specially if you two hand them, i would do something like this if you dont mind mid rolling http://tinyurl.com/cmszkmv

    Yeah I'd say 99 since I have enough problems getting into invasions/arena matches as it is, I don't want to be trying to find people at higher levels.

    I'm not too sure about mid rolls, but I guess I could at least try it.

    go with str, str is aweome. dex is EASIER not better, its all on the player if you practice enough you can kick some *** with any weapon, the only reason str weapons are not used a lot is because most people are lazy and tend to go with whatever is easier, why do you think you see gankers with full giants and an uchi or rapier? most peope that use str weapons like rapier only go for a bs because its just an easy win.

    I was schooled once from a guy that used CMW on a Large club and went to town on me. Haven't seen a STR weapon used that well before. SHould have tried to friend him.

    med roll is actually really viable, fat roll is the one i have a problem with but only when i come up against people with tons of magic(any magic), im actually gonna make a med roller for the dlc ssince im on psn, im making it around the new artorias shield.

    I would go with the canvas talisman, until you have higher faith than 40 it has better magic adjustmnet
