    I'm thinking...

    Post by Rynn on Mon Feb 13, 2012 6:33 pm

    Of creating a Dual Shield class... my thoughts on weapons is to dual wield Bone Shields, and use the spinning attack skill... lightning seems like a viable weapon type to get the most damage out of the shields.

    My one question seems to be if this attack still 'blocks' during use, or if I'm open for attack, it seems too good to ignore if I'm capable of blocking during the animation; otherwise I'm going to have to build up poise and make a tanking build; which will still be lovely and very surprising to opponents.

    The build isn't intended for overall efficiency, just for a cheap laugh... but what are your thoughts on maximizing it's efficiency?

    You have two slots for both hands, allowing four shields in total. If I may?

    The two bonewheel shields are great. However, their are better ways of also doing such shield builds. Using a Greatshield such as the Stone Greatshield, or the Shield of Artorias, can be two-handed for better blocked efficency, as well as the ability to bash more stronger. The usage of lighting with the Bonewheel shield is a great idea. A Piercing Shield or a Spiked Shield can be used for the left hand to allow dual shields to be efficent without the Bonewheel Shield and not using normal shields, and can use a shield such as the Balder Shield and such for Two-Handing in certain circumstances. You can upgrade shields with divine, lightning, fire, and other such things. You can upgrade to those instead of + 15 or just lightning.

    Two Handing a normal shield and using R2 will allow a charged block attack for a short distance, attacking while hiding behind cover. Just some ideas. Good luck with the dual shields.

    Not trying to sound like I know everything, but I think he was talking about specifically using 2 bonewheel shields for comedic effect.

    As for the shields, lightning seems like the best idea for them. Parrying would be fun (that is, if you can even parry), so overall seems like a nice comedic PCP build.

    this could help, you need a sword of some kind to distract them and make them come to you so yo can do the spinnign attack.

    You know what you should do for full on sillyness?

    Wield 2 fire bonewheel shields, use the Black Cleric set with no headpiece and wait for it...when you fight people send them a tell afterwards asking if they have your name memorized.

    Also you have to have a male toon with longish red hair.

    Tell me how many people got it before they clicked the spoiler. Be honest.

    ..........yes

    In fact, doing that build right now.

    I totally have an excuse to use pyromancy on a toon and have it fit thematically. Yay for me.

    "...The name is Kujii, K-U-J-Double I-... got it memorized?"...

    Yeah, I could pull that off... but wouldn't I need more poise to survive people throwing me all over the place? Might need to see if I could throw in Havels boots or something without it being noticeable amoung my clothes for some poise... I love the idea!

    Black clerics chest piece, black iron pants and gloves all looks great together. Should be able to get decent poise with that setup.

    Its 36 before wolfs ring witch would bring you up to 76, that is plenty.
