    help with sl99 DSS build please

    Post by tofucactaur on Mon Oct 08, 2012 3:25 am

    as the title say...
    it is fairly tough to get a viable build due to the need to spread the stats.....
    i think you need 28 str to one hand it aswell.....

    this is first draft/idea/theory
    someone can surely offer some insight/help
    I almost exclusively use the great scythe, and the other day on a quality build i made i started playing around with different spears, and decided to make a build for dlc dedicated to the DSS
    help?

    Looks alright, though you could switch leo ring out. As well without faith you could focus more on the physical side, since it'll add at most 180 lightning.

    yeah, i havent really played with leo ring much, though id give it a try for something different, so il probably switch it out if i notice not much difference.
    is it proven/common knowledge that the faith aspect of the scaling contributes to the electric portion of the damage? if this is the case, would i still deal respectable damage with a more balanced quality build and just totally not worry about faith, as there is no actual minimum requirement to wield the weapon?

    these are the stats my quality build runs, should I just not bother to make a whole new build dedicated to the DSS and run it with this? Or would the damage really suffer...

    You could sacrifice End + some poise and increase Faith. Either way you'll destroy.

    Leo ring only adds damage to the physical portion so you want the physical damage to be has high as possible.

    I think WoG and spears are just too nice together to pass up a chance like this. Armor chucked on cause DSS_heater weighs the same as a set I'm familiar with and 53 poise is cool. Any of the particularly light zero poise chest/legs can be used

    these are all rad, nice work
    I have been playing this morning with my fave build (hyper dex pyro) which is fairly similar to and based on one of darksoulsmindeye build, and she can wield the DSS, only 2 hand though
    http://tinyurl.com/929jalf
    this is what i was using
    it is good fun, will probably make a dedicated character to have some more fun with this weapon, it is def OP as everyone on the board already knows. i found that it was fairly easy to win matches without having really used the weapon much at all. still prefer my great scythe, but is def fun. i am keen to be able to 1 hand wield the weapon though, make use of the shooting lightning and be able to parry/play more defensively with a shield would vary gameplay a little.
