    SL99 Heracles Build

    Post by Ghadis_God on Thu Sep 20, 2012 2:39 am

    So I thought I'd try my hand at a strength build this time around, this one being a cosplay of the legendary Greek demigod Heracles. It's a bit lacking in defense, but its poise, speed, and AR are nothing to sneeze at.

    Definitely a build for experienced Str weapon users to roll, but it's got some variety in how you set it up. It can use the Eagle shield (which also matches the cosplay) along with the Dark Hand for parries, and it's also able to wield the Dragon Tooth while still fast rolling, which I will certainly be doing. The best part (Aside from being utterly boss)? SL99 for the Arena!

    I already have a SL 70 version of this build, and it is absolutely killer. Granted, it uses the Lightning GC, but I think the low defense justifies it, and I do have 28 Str so it's not exactly min/maxing. So far I'm undefeated with it, not that I've done that many invasions, but most people are powerless against a decent Str wep user.

    Thats a pretty cool build.

    I don't know if you thought of this but you can squeeze on the giants helm (which I've always thought looked kinda gladiator ish) for some extra poise and still fast roll with some weight left over. Not sure if it fits what you have though.

    That might actually fit, cosplay-wise. I'd have to take it off to use the Dragon tooth or Eagle Shield though, it's definitely a situational thing.

    I don't think you'd need to. My friend just did a playthrough naked with a great club and a plank shield. He's been doing pvp at sl 110 (on xbox) with the same character and he's got a pretty good win/loss streak going.

    I do need to, I've worked it out on Mugenmonkey. With the Giant Helm I have .04 weight left, without it I have 6.7, which gives me room for either Eagle + Darkhand or Dragon Tooth.

    How about Sunlight Shield or Iron Round Shield? He used a bow with fire arrows, and a sickle (Shotel) for cutting the Hydra's heads. He also wore the lion's hide as armor. No idea on that but the Eastern Armor and Ornstein's Helm have a lion.

    In the depictions of Heracles I've seen he usually uses what seems to be a small wooden shield. It's basically just there for looks and parries, I can afford the aesthetic because it's low weight. But he usually appears either in the Lion's pelt or just in a waistcloth, I don't really want any armor on him and there's no wearable animal skin clothes in game, which would have been cool. Good point about the bow and sickle though. I don't really want to invest into Dex for the Shotel though, that kind of defeats some of the strength of the build. It would be better starting as a warrior in that case.
