    Some insight into a Strength Build

    Post by goober0331 on Wed Sep 19, 2012 9:14 pm

    So I'm making a strength build after going dexterity for all my previous builds and could use some insight.

    http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=3571232808637752

    First one is Med Roll version of the build. Has good Bleed resistance and enough poise to take one hit from a 2h ultra great sword.

    Second is Fast Roll version. Problem is I want 53 poise to be able to resist one 2h strike from a greatsword, and I'm 2 short. Also am considering switching Shotel with a Composite bow.

    Both builds use the Black Knights Greataxe, which I am aware is getting nerfed around 100 damage in PTD, but I just love its moveset.

    Both use Power Within, GC, Havel and Wolf rings respectively. Both builds have good Bleed resistance, because I see a even bigger increase in katanas since their getting a speed buff in PTD.

    Any help is appreciated

    This armor setup is better and you need an anti spear option, a composite bow +poison arrows is mu syggestion

    My armor choices was the thing I wasnt too sure about, so thanks for the input. And if I see a spear user I can also menu switch to a bow,or vice versa with the shotel.

    I think Knight's gauntlets / Hallow Waistcloth with wolf ring are some of the best options for defence and poise for their weight. Catarina Gauntlets give them a run for their money for the poise but they lack the oomph of +10 resistence values

    I know you want the BKGA, but I think you should honestly drop the dex and go pure strength. Large hammers are where it's at!
