    Your STR stat...

    Post by Seignar on Fri Sep 28, 2012 2:50 pm

    Always bothered me. I mostly want that 40 so I can one hand faster STR weapons and maximize their scaling, but I also do it so I can 1-hand heavier weapons since 2-handing is fairly predictable, then there is the problem that if I don't I might end up staggering by accidentally hitting attack when 1-handing for some obscenely long recovery frames.

    So, what do you go for?

    For a pure strength build, i go to 40 or 50 depending on whether I want to use havel's shield. Hybrid builds I stick to 28 and 2h everything. Yeah the scaling wont be maximized but it's only about 30 points less damage i think.

    It's around 60 damage less depending on the scaling (Good scaling gets -60). It won't matter for C scaling weapons, but B and A can feel it.

    The AR bonus from 40 to 50 isnt as big as you would wish .
    However some good Weapons require 50 Str to be wield in one Hand .
    So it depends if you want to use the heaviest weapons one handed then go for 50, but for scaling only i would stop at 40 and put the 10 Points in End or Vit .

    Twenty seven, because I don't really do strength builds as much as I do quality builds. I'm a big fan of the zweihander, for instance, but I think quality builds serve it better due to the increased two-handing speed and the scaling on both stats. Two-handed at 27 strength and 40 dexterity, it gets about 610 for its attack rating. That's pretty damned impressive, if you ask me, and it has high range and stagger potential to boot.

    I go 27 or 40, depending on the sl and the weapon.

    As it has been stated already (so I assume). It's all up to how you want to play. If you want to one hand your greatsword, you'll want 40-50 to maximize scaling with your dmg. if you go with 34-28 you'll want to 2h everything and put more points into other stats. It's all in your play style and what you wish to do. Personally I'd go 40-50 so I could use the shield, there is always the option to switch to 2h if needed, then again this sacrafices other oppourtunites in your build. However, as an str build your goal is to kinda tank everyone.

    27 or 46, depends on the sl. Most of the time I go 46 but I get 40 here and there specially sl 99 builds.

    Depends on what else is going into the build happy If it's a hybrid then less like 30 or something but if it were a pure str build then i'd go 50.

    I got a 50 str build atm using havels shield, golem axe and catarina armor. It's pretty sweet.

    I end up at 28 a lot. But I guess technically those would be quality builds since I aim to include the murakumo if I do. For Large Club I go 34-36 and occasionally grab the Dex to wield the BKGA if I want a good menu swap from roll r1.

    Unless you want a murakumo build(Which I would consider quality, not strength), I would either go to 40 or 50 - though I voted 40. Demon's Great Machete ftw c;

    If I want to save points, then 27 and 2H the weapon. Otherwise, it is 40, or the minimum strength required (if more than 40 is required). After 40, severe diminishing returns kick in.

    50.. you can 1 hand most strength weapons and use havel's shield with an off-hand parry shield. Also, most strength weapons 1h r1's are better than their 2h r1's. (Demon's Greataxe)
