    Which Scythe?

    Post by Pratix on Thu Sep 06, 2012 6:15 pm

    Great Scythe +15

    Lifehunt +5 or whatever max is.

    Elemental Great Scythe max level.

    40 dex. Which would be best in Pvp.

    Kk. And also what is some good practical armor to use with this set. This is only my dex and endurance atm. I want armor under 25% because I want to practice my roll. Also I would like the wolfs ring, but havel will work too.

    I use the Lifehunt, which is such a great weapon, and fast roll with Pharis Hat, Shadow Garb, Iron Bracelet, and Thorn leggings. I also have 40 End. and RoFaP to wear it; Wolf ring lets you meet the breakpoint.

    depends on how you want to use it. the lifehunt will demolish people if you don't rely on massive zoning attacks.

    you can lock people into its bleedout with a backstab too.

    basically don't bother with an elemental weapon tho, you have 40 dex man..

    Catarina legs or hands + wolf ring = 53 poise. Black Iron Gaunlets+hallow soldier waistcloth+wolf is 65 (2 katana hits) I frequently wear the Painted gaurdian chest/legs because It looks good to me and I hate poison arrows and bleed build up and the PGset has good resist values. If you want something more physically durable Black Cleric Robes are light and get pretty sturdy since they go to +10 and the Catarina stuff is "over budget" for it's weight because it has no curse resist so it's other stats are slightly inflated compared to other armors that weigh about the same.

    53, my slow weapons need to not be interrupted by a claymore swing, I focus on trading a lot of the time so its important.

    The great scythe is easier to use, so if you're not experienced with scythes I'd use the great scythe.

    Great Scythe Elemental. The do low level PvP. The players around SL 70- 80 are equally if more so skilled than the 120er and a hell of a lot less likely to gank you.

    474 is +15. Its 512 crystal but its a 1 per playthrough item I think so going crystal is a terrible Idea.

    I 2 shot people at 120 too, through giants a dmb greatscythe (50 faith) does around 900 with a 2hr2

    At min str requirement its still only 484. You have to bump str to hit 500.

    I don't rely on them, I do to much pvp at 80 to rely on them, but at 120 I totally use them. The extra vit wouldn't usually make much of a difference because I'm at 1800+ anyways so nobody but a cannon is going to 1shot me, I have no use for more end because I'm moving fast in heavy armor anyways, damage stat is at diminishing returns point.

    That really just leavs putting points in int or faith to boost damage and add some versatility. I could bump the other damage stat for versatility, but I prefer spells for the utility aspect.

    This is a variation on my rego build for the upcoming content. The 2 short swords are in place of ciarans weapons right now. I bumped a bit of INT to make use of utility spells. I use this builds in lots of ways, it was originally just a great scythe and pyro build, I actually think I have 4 character slots dedicated to this character at different levels now. sometimes I use chameleon with either avelyn or fire tempest for fun. On other versions I up the DEX to 45 for faster castings. This character is extremely brutal/very fast(esp with the 45 dex) and has mad poise. The great scythe has amazing damage and is very quick. Sometimes I use GMW and a few pyros. Sometimes armour switches are necessary to maintain a fast role, I am looking forward to the new armours, I think they will help. But yeah, I pretty much only use the great scythe right now, and it kill it. Am thinking of trying lifehunt soon.

    if you are new chaos scythe,good range good damage

    however once you hit a certain skillcap go for the lifehunt

    if you combine it with a weapon who stacks bleed fast like the bandit knife,you can full up their meter(even if they dodge and take no damage the bleed bar will will)and deliver the final shot with the lifehunt

    this baby it's golden against turtle or against those bastards with 2000 hp and giant armor
