    New to forum, help me finish my build!

    Post by MGBx88 on Wed Jan 02, 2013 1:23 pm

    Hey guys, I've been lurking around here for a while, and finally decided to post.
    I haven't gone to any forum based pvp parties, but I think I'd like to get into that.

    I have a dex/faith char who is sl125, so I was going to level my 88 to 120, as she's a DW, and I have a little wiggle room for stats.

    Build

    Also, am I setting myself up for failure using a 1h sword? I feel like everyone I fight is wearing all heavy armor, and uses some giant weapon that does 600dmg a hit... I actually just got back into the game after a few months of being busy.... and these new spells destroy me, if they hit me.

    Are you planning to use pyromancy as your main damage dealer? Or did you just forget to put a melee weapon in your right hand?

    Woops haha, was looking at the chart wrong, thanks!

    I use a katana right now, was thinking of leveling my chaos blade, but I have to check if it will be better.

    If you're doing pyromancy, as opposed to miracles or sorcery, the Chaos Blade might be a good choice. You could actually swap a few things around and make a decent glass cannon of this build. If you ditched the RoFaP, and added the Red Tearstone Ring and the Chaos Blade, you could cast Power Within and use the Chaos Blade to lower your health and kick the RT ring buff in, then do massive damage. That's just one option though. If you're just going for more of a melee approach, then I recommend some different armor, or some different rings. Depending on how you want to go. If you're going to go super light armor, you could go for the DWGR, and that might help you deal with the dark sorceries a bit better. You could also go heavier armor, add some more poise, and tank, with the amount of endurance you have on top of the RoFaP, you could certainly handle being a bit heavier, and it wouldn't affect your speed. You're right in the middle of either one as it is now, and IMO you might be a bit more effective if you pick one and go with it.

    If you go for the Chaos Blade I also definitely recommend some more dexterity. Otherwise you could go elemental if you wanted to, considering that you don't seem to be buffing anyway.

    lotta good options man, I appreciate it!
    I kinda just have pyro to mess around with, a greater combust is handy here or there, but I haven't put point in anywhere else, so haven't bothered picking up other spells.

    My SL125 has the faith buff, it's pretty decent...
    my +5 chaos uchi does more dmg than my +4 lightning Iaito, and it seems like people have more resistance to lightning than fire anyways.

    Yeah, if I'm going elemental I usually go Chaos too. If you're going to try to hit 120 though, you have a lot of points to work with still, so you'd need to figure out where you would want to go from there. I'd definitely say throw that last point into VIT for an even 50, just because it doesn't hurt to do that. But then you've still got another 30ish points to work with. You do have a lot of options. You could go for another attunement slot and pick up dark flame, and basically have a ton more combustion casts, if that's what you like. You could also consider throwing some more points into STR and DEX, even if you have decided to go elemental, and use the Washing Pole, which will do more damage than all the other katanas, and has a ton more reach. You could also increase your INT to 25 and then fill up your DEX as much as you can with the remainder of your points, and go standard for one of the smaller katanas for a Crystal Magic Weapon buff. With such high VIT and END, and essentially nothing else with 30 points to spend you really have all kinds of options.

    It all depends on how you like to play

    Think I might try the 25int with a +15 sword... so many options.

    is that new GS from the expansion any good?

    The Abyss Great Sword? I'm not sure which you mean. If that's what you're talking about it's alright. It operates like the 2 Artorias great swords though, so if you don't have 18 across the board for your stats, then it's useless. The two tracers are great DLC weapons though, but neither can be buffed, so if that's what you're going to do there's no sense in going INT for buffs. The Stone Great Axe is an awesome weapon too, but requires 50 STR to wield. If you're considering going with a great sword with a dex build, I'd recommend either the Murakumo or Flameberge. Both are amazing weapons with the right stats to back them up. Both can be buffed too. If it were me, and I wanted to go with a great sword, I'd probably choose the Flameberge.Bleed is such an asset.

    I think I'll do INT just to get dark bead, as I'm tired of being 2 shot by it with 1900hp lol

    Try this one pretty basic pure Dex build.

    Yeah, if I had to guess I'd say that Dark Bead is probably the number one issue people are having in the game right now. You have a few options for trying to deal with it better. You could go with the Dark Woodgrain Ring for a light build, which would give you a better chance of dodging out of the way of it. You could go faith instead of intelligence and use Great Magic Barrier, which is what I've been doing recently, or you could choose a shield with high magic defenses, like the Crest Shield, or one of the heavier great shields. Just fast rolling by itself can be quite a boon in that regard too. Again it all depends on how you play.
