    Obsidian Greatsword Builds Thread

    Post by mugenis4real on Mon Nov 19, 2012 6:06 pm

    The Obsidian Greatsword is almost too good to be true. It only requires 20Str and 16Dex to do it's max damage, can be buffed with any spell of your choosing, and has a special AoE attack built right in. Beautiful.

    As soon as I downloaded the DLC content, I set out on a quest to create a build to complement my new sword.

    This is the build that I created.

    What do your Obsidian Greatsword builds look like?

    http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=154368000364687777 I took your build and made it more sexy with a hat instead of a baby face.

    this one can switch out with and elemental Zwei for stunlocking via menu with out having to change armor since the endurance allows for 2 more pounds.

    an alternate version is this http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=222898336652769057

    this has more spell utility.

    While I did like the ogs I just don't think it's the best gs with low stat requirements, here's a better one http://mmdks.com/9wp

    I haven't made a OGS build yet, but i'm going to do one soon.

    @GkMr. You need to have 2 pyro flames anymore. The self damage of PW is the same with every upgrade of it, thanks to the patch.

    damn that really puts it in perspective that other GSs with low stats are just as powerful.

    despite that being a Crystal.. even a +15 out damages the ODS if 2 handed.

    makes me look differently at the ODS

    True, however the utility of that special R2 attack counts for alot in battle. As brute force means nothing in the face of strategy.

    The r2 is ey limited in battle, I can sens it being good in tight corridors but that's it, if you try to do it in an open area your *** is gonna get bsed. The msgs' r2 dead angles and his like a truck.

    This was supposed to be a thread about the Obsidian Greatsword, not the Man-Serpent Greatsword.

    While I do appreciate you sharing your knowledge about it's power, arguing about it's superiority was clearly a derail.

    The two-handed R2 of the Obsidian Greatsword is relevant as are the different buffs that can be applied. A buffed AoE attack is nothing to dismiss so easily as you said.

    "You made it set like you were wrecking people with the r2, then you tell me you were doing it with all those buffs lol. You can ohko anyone with all that at sl 40."

    As one of the long time members of this forum, longer even than me, I find this behavior a little surprising.

    Plain childish: "I swear to God if I ever meet you im going to plant my foot so far up your *** you can kiss it while its there."

    Come now gentlemen, we're all better than this.
