    New Lucerne build, Could use some help.

    Post by ViralEnsign_ on Tue Sep 25, 2012 8:33 am

    Im looking for an SL 80 and 120 Lucerne Faith builds that can be effective in PvP and in Co Op.

    Preferably using the Leo Ring and having some sort of knightly appearance.

    Since Ive made so many builds Im running out of creativity....

    Luccy is no good with Faith, Leo ring wont boost the extra damage from Occult/Divine or a Buff.

    Haha, because Epic Name Bro used it in a recent vid.

    Unless I misheard I believe he also said something about it getting the Leo Ring boost for all its attacks, but if that's supposed to be the case my game screwed me, as I get no difference in damage with the ring on or off.

    Yep, ENB did use it in his PtD walkthroughs. It's a pure thrust weapon so it does get a major boost to damage if you counter i.e. in the middle of an opponents attack.

    I am not a fan of the move set though.

    I thought it was strike. The Lucerne is just for showing off Viral. The weapon is a super slow Gargoyle's Halberd. And Jans you can't make it crystal because it's a 1 per playthrough weapon.

    Of course you can, but once it's broken it's gone for good unless you go to NG+.

    Well I farmed up 6 Great Scythes to make crystal, it takes ~ 2 hours a playthrough if I'm picking up specific things and saving Seig for his slab. INT builds are actually the worst because LOGAN.

    Most of my Invaders are on NG+++++ or more

    I used to make fun of this weapon.

    "Why would anyone use this crap? It's a weaker and shorter version of the Halberd"

    Then, I used it. I loved it right away in PVE because you feel like you're just pummeling the enemies into the dirt. Sure, the Halberd and Gargoyle Halberd have better range and overall damage, but they lack that satisfaction.

    I used it briefly in PVP and I got wrecked. I need more practice with it.

    If you want to talk about a useless weapon, how about that Scythe? hehe.

    But the Scythe has higher scaling in Dex and the Lucerne is slower.

    And who's to say that the scythe's range isn't a great advantage?

    Why would I use a Scythe, when I can use a GREAT Scythe?! Shrug hehe.

    Honestly, I don't like the move sets for the Halberd, Gargoyle Halberd, or the Scythe. And the 360 spin attack is just silly looking.

    ^I agree with you, the only one that has a good moveset in my opinion is the simple Halberd due to its thrusts that stunlock and love phantom hits and lag. silly

    the lucerne does thrust damage and so pierces heavy armor better, the scythe does slash and does better against light armor. really the lucerne is a great scythe/halberd crossbreed (similar r1 utility)
    could someone do a frame by frame comparison of halberd attack speeds?

    actually on a 22 str 40 dex build lucy does more damage than the great scythe and you can dead angle with the r2.

    derp... right, yeah lucy is the slowest halberd but damage wise she's above average.)
