    Need advice for a new build

    Post by Mr. Tart on Wed Oct 03, 2012 5:34 pm

    So i decided i'd try something new in preparation for the DLC, and here's what i've come up with:
    http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=3499772297500748

    It's not finalized or anything like that, i'm just experimenting at the moment(though i like the armour so that's not gonna change, same goes for axe)however, i'm not quite sure where to go on from there, so, you guys have any advice for what to add? I'd like a fast weapon as well, but i'm not quite sure which, so, yeah, any advice is appreciated.

    Oh, and just pointing out, i'm not some kind of hardcore player, i love to roleplay, so i'm not planning on making an OMFGEPICTOTALLYPRO build or anything like that, just something fun and out of the ordinary really, so, yeah. Yeah.

    Edit: Note that i plan on sticking with level 100, so i'm not going further than that.

    Just two things, if you're mid rolling you should consider in uping your poise to 77 (its not that far), and put 4 points in faith to use the heal miracle (incredible usefull on the arena)

    Something like this

    Thanks for your posts/advice, but as for the bow, i'm not really into that kind of thing, i was thinking something more melee, for the variety, but not going as far as a bow, i'm really just not into that, but still, thanks for the advice. Bow

    http://tinyurl.com/9w29xrm didnt change much since you were going for fastr roll, i just made it more knightly and at the same time having good res, the xbows are awesome against pyro since theyre so fast and pyro is kinda slow even with 45 dex you can pull out you bow when theyre casting connect and roll away, its specially good against the storm pyros since you will hit them on the face which will stagger them no matter how much poise they have. also make sure you unlock as much as you can specially against strafe bs'ers.

    Okay, having looked through all of your suggestions i tried re-working the build, and here's what i've come up with. I think it's better than the original, though i'm still not sure if it's good enough, that being the reason i'm still posting here.

    Oh, and i'm really grateful for all the advice you guys've come up with, so thanks alot. Bow

    Oh, while i'm also at it, i'd like to ask if anyone could post a really good caster build for me, because i have no damn idea what to do, and please, no Crown of Dusk or anything like that, but rather something that looks decent enough. Thanks in advance Proper Bow

    Right, so i just tried some mage builds out thanks to my ''Crystalline set'' topic, and here's two builds i made, based upon the set = no changing in armor. One for 200 and another for 100, though the main idea was 200 i'm considering sticking with 100 for the co-op. So here they are, oh and just to make things more clear, what i want is advice on the stats, not the rest of the equipment:

    LVL 200 - http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=4076505408921800

    LVL 100 - http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=4076505408921800

    Now, just pointing out, the idea is for the mage to mainly use crystal magic, and i did consider using another weapon so that i could use the crystal buff, but, yeah, idk. I just felt like it was a good idea at the time, so you could actually suggest a weapon instead of the Trident as well, no heavies though.

    Edit: Here's lvl 100, the first one leads to 200, so here 100 is:
