    Gravelord Sword Stat Scaling

    Post by Techneeq on Thu Dec 27, 2012 6:10 am

    I am going to use the Gravelord Sword this run and I am not sure about the scaling. They both are E, but I have looked around and people are saying it is best to build Dex when using it.

    So should I just go to 24 Str and then dump into dex, or keep putting points into dex and keeping it even or what?

    I don't think it matters with the gravelord sword. It's considered a dex weapons cause it's a curved greatsword, and any other curved (great)sword is dex focused, except for the gravelord sword.

    It's a faith weapon. get the minimums to hold it, then get your faith up for harder Gravelord Miracles IMO.

    Okay, so I guess it doesn't really matter where I put the points, it both affects the damage evenly (ofc not past 40 points though).

    And as for faith I will most likely just get the weapon and then go over to Darkwraith, and for that you are not able to keep the miracles I belive.

    You can still use the miracles even outside the Gravelord covenant, but it recieves a 10% damage reduction I think if you're not with them.

    You can still use gravelord (great)sword dance, but with 10% damage reduction. When i play a faith build i like to go gravelording until i get the greatsword dance, then quit and join sunbros for the lightning spear. And so you can use them both ;D

    Okay, one of the main reasons I want to leave after is because I am leveling up again with 2 friends who just got the game. I have seen that if you are all in the same covenant it makes connection easier and they are both going to go Dark Wraith.

    Will being in the same covenant really make that much of a difference when searching to join each other or should I just stay as a Gravelord Servant?

    Co-oping only seems to become more common among Way of the White and Sunbros, I don't think any of the PvP covenants 'attract' one another.

    Path of the dragon definitely does, but not for co-op happy.

    the best thing to do is only the stats needed to one hand it ans STOP there since scaling sucks and its not worth it.

    adding in dex or st onlt gets you around 30 more ar, not worth 30 someodd points imo, thus something like the build above is recomended

    I actually think I will go this build. So far I have not gone a build doesn't that depends on stat scaling or one with a decent amount of poise so this looks fun.

    I did not know that. Interesting.
