    DMB vs SB?

    Post by nhbdy on Mon Feb 13, 2012 8:36 pm

    I have a build I've been working on that is getting close to being ready for PvP, I know I want to use one of these buffs, the fact that I must be in faction to use DMB is not a huge concern... What I am concerned about is the damage output, the raw scaling from faith, and if they are different, the duration difference. If there is any difference in scaling I'd like to know which would be better at 30 and 40 faith. Thanks in advance!

    Their is posts in the Archives that talk about the two, if it helps.

    Of course, the bad side of the Darkmoon miracle is that in order for it to be better you have to be a sworn and dutiful Darkmoon Blade, if you are aiming for something else other than that. The higher you are in the covenant, the better the miracle does. However, the Sunlight Blade is easily obtainable and still does a good chunk of damage, and it adds around over 200 damage to my + 15 Man-Serpent Greatsword, with faith of almost 48 and strength of 46. Fun as hell.

    The darkmoon blade buff will give more AR then the sunlight blade every time, but the difference isn't to huge.

    Darkmoon blade is Magic Adjust x 2.1 at base and that goes up as your rank increases.

    Sunlight is only Magic Adjust x 1.8, never improves but is lightning damage.

    My character uses both buffs, give me a few and I'll post the actual in game stats before and after both buffs with the weapons I use.

    DMB gives you more attack rating. Much of this is magic damage, and I feel that it is easily countered by stacking magic defense. If your opponent blocks with crest shield it does nearly nothing for chip damage as well. I prefer SLB just because I think its a little harder to stack your lightning defense, and the chip damage is solid unless you run into a effigy shield. A lot of the time when you buff your weapon your opponent will just dance around and avoid your attacks until the buff wears off though. In conclusion, I prefer SLB, less common defense against it and all you really sacrifice is a negligible amount of AR. I don't always use buffs, but when I do, I prefer SLB. happy

    Thanks for the feedback, and any other info would be appreciated and I apologize for making a thread that was not needed (I have yet to notice the archives and will head there presently).

    SLB+Silver Knight Strait Sword is epic.
