    Good build for using most/all non-magic weapons?

    Post by PeppermintTea on Sun Nov 04, 2012 1:03 am

    So I've started another character to co-op with a friend who just started the game and I was wondering if anyone had a build that could use most or all of the weapons in the game effectively, while staying SL100 for the arena. I don't really care for magic (Excluding pyromancy) so I'll just be going with weapons. Also, would using a build like this be effective at all compared to one specialized for dex or str instead of both? I would use the lifehunt scythe a lot though. Thoughts would be appreciated.

    Would this be good? http://tinyurl.com/apf4q2r

    Sorry for that huge link.

    TL;DR: Need a build that can use all non-magic weapons effectively.
    Thanks in advance!

    What you got there is pretty good itself. Basically, you want 40 Strength and 40 DEX to be able to use damn near every weapon in the game aside from the ultra-heavy weapons and weapons with an Intelligence/Faith requirement.

    this is mine http://tinyurl.com/aptt835 when you two hand your weapon with 27 str its the same as having 40 str, the reason i went up to 28 is so you can one hand the murakumo, one of the best weapons in the game. with this build you get most out of the ar with most weapons while staying sl 100. you can always do this http://tinyurl.com/bezl4w9 and use be able to two hand all str weapons(except smough's hammer) but at the pricce of having less vit.

    Alrighty, thanks for the replies. At least I know what I'm doing isn't going to be a complete failure. I think I'll start my character off and make the final adjustments later on.

    Usually, a 27/40 Str/Dex build lets you use any non-magic weapon to its greatest potential, although there are variants like 28/40 for the Murakumo or 34/40 for the usage of certain greatshields (namely, Artoiras), Dragon Weapons and being able to dual-wield Havel's in order to use its special.

    Putting in 40 STR is impractical because you would be using up more points that could be best invested elsewhere instead of simply using 2-handing bonuses, which is why 27 and 34 are usually recommended points (based on preference) when making quality builds.

    the quallity build is one of the best builds in the game dude, go for it. make sure you start with eeither warrior or bandit.
    I second that.

    Alright then, sounds good. Thanks everyone! I'll stick with the 28 build for now, and then see where I wanna go from there.

    Rant's stats are almost the exact same as mine. I've dropped Vit to 37 and End to 40 though. 28 Str is important to me, because you can 1H the Mura (2H is crap for the Mura).
