    SL 100 Str/Dex Estoc build?

    Post by Death132 on Sun Oct 14, 2012 2:13 am

    Since it seems SL 100 is the most popular for dueling I would like to try and make an Estoc build with no buffs or elemental damage. Just str and dex. How would this fair in current pvp?

    Looks very good to me! Zero poise, but if you're good at dodging then you'll be golden, especially with that Leo ring...

    I would use this http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=2905038744174716.

    Estoc only gains 1 AR per STR level, and it gets a bonus when 2-handing it. So 30 str is enough, and since you have no poise, you should put a few more points into Vit.

    Going no poise is so risky in PVP, I dont recommend it. The Leo Ring only works on counters, so unless your very skilled at predicting when your opponent is going to attack and hit them mid way through their attacks, or if you will just poke them from behind a raised shield and hope to catch them between blows, then its useless. And if your doing the later your better off setting up a parry.

    I recommend this, much more balanced and versatile.

    Here's my take. It has a bit of poise, just so you're not stunlocked by everything, and it redistributes a lot of that strength value. The estoc isn't a weapon that acts particularly efficiently for a combined strength and dexterity build, so those points are better spent in endurance and vitality. With Chester's Top Hat and Chester's Long Coat, you still get the aesthetic, but the hands and legs are given knight gear for a bit of a defensive boost. Lastly, the extra equip burden is filled with a Balder Shield, for those times when you need to block 100% of physical damage.

    With these alterations, you'll be doing almost as much damage, but you'll have more HP and a greater capacity to mitigate damage.
