    Looking for help w/ SL120 Thief Build

    Post by Domhnall on Wed Feb 15, 2012 8:44 pm

    Hey all, I'm currently working on an SL 120 PvP Thief build based around DEX with 16 Int or so for those fun sneaky sorcery spells. Was wondering if anyone had any tips on what armor to get to +10 and which dagger to use. I'm not planning on glitching or pivot stabbing or anything, purely a legit, sneaky, backstabbing/parrying Thief. Also wondering how much Vit/End I should be looking at for SL120. I'm also putting 16 Str to use my lightning claymore for bosses/things that cant be backstabbed.

    If you want a really cool looking outfit for this build, try the Black Cleric robe found in the Painted World, along with the Shadow Mask from Blighttown. Use Black Leather gloves, and some type of light leggings. If you plan on using those sneaky spells, this is a great outfit because all the black tends to make your "ghost" blend into the environment better.

    For a dagger, your goal should be getting Priscilla's tail in the Painted World...I think that's the best one to use. If you're good at parrying, the Parrying Dagger is pretty slick as well.

    a rapier +15 is the best backstab parry damage, and ... 16 int? what's that going to do 95 damage?
    whatever, here is your build
    sl 120
    vit 50
    att 12
    end 38
    str 16
    dex 50
    res 11
    int 16
    fai 9

    starting class hunter.

    Parry dagger
    Rapier +15
    sorcerers catalyst

    hornet ring
    darkwood grain ring

    whatever,

    If you read his post, you'll see he wants the Int for the spells that are stealth based, like Hidden Body, Chameleon, Hush, etc. He wants to try a build that's based around sneaking and staying hidden.

    I wouldn't go over 40 dex. And I'd say take end to 40. Just my two cents.

    Maybe 45 dex, to get the max casting speed. But, your weapon's AR will barely increase over 40.

    If you wanna go for looks/effectiveness I'd recommend using med gloves and legs, black knight, orstien your choice, then use the shadow garb chest and the gold hemmed hood. You look pretty sinister.

    Alright cool thanks for the info guys.I wouldn't be caught dead using that stupid flip ring, and heavy armor goes against my mindset of what a Thief should be, but still thanks for the input, it is much appreciated.
