    Help Me Decide…DEX on a STR Build?

    Post by Nybbles on Thu Dec 20, 2012 6:24 pm

    okay, so it's decision time and i'm at a crossroads with my current build. i'm going for a STR build and i know i want to have 50 in STR, just enough END to medium roll in heavy armour with Havel's ring and around 12-1500 HP. what i'm trying to decide is how much DEX i want. my main weapon atm is a +15 great axe and i think that i want enough DEX so i can use the great bows and black knight weapons. or maybe not? i don't know.

    anyway, what i'm trying to decide is where i want to cap my DEX, but i'm not sure where the good cut off points are. usually when i have any DEX at all, i either stop at 18 or go all the way to 40. i could go for a 40/40 build i suppose, but i think i want to hit 50 STR with this build. so maybe 50/30? what do you kind folks think?

    btw, this is going to be you standard PVP level build, so most likely in the 120 range (give or take a few levels).

    Do you mind MugenMonkeying your build? Makes it easier to critique, at least I know it does for me.

    No point at all in 30 dex, your dex weapons will just be less viable. Do either 18 for the BK weapons or 20 for the greatbows.

    Ehh, I'm of a mind with Ghadis. 30 DEX doesn't seem worth it, but you're more than welcome to try.

    thirty dex is only worth it if youre only gonna use the zwei or greatsword, otherwise its a waste of points. like ghadis said, wither 18 for bk weapons or 20 if you want the greatbows. i personally would just stop at 10 and swap to the the pike(chaos) when your opponent if really mobile.

    Well, you do need 27 Strength for Gough's so maybe, just maybe, that wouldn't make 30 DEX such a horrible choice.

    Right?

    i jut looked at your build and since you have 13 dex why not go up to 18 if you really like the bk weapons. with med roll a comp bow+15 will do some good damage(for a bow) and it can save your *** if you poison your opponent to keeep pressure on your opponent which sometimes will make them make mistakes and get killed.
