    Finished my build. What weapons would you choose for PVP

    Post by SillentShadow on Thu Jan 03, 2013 5:52 pm

    Hey again. Finally closed up a new build. I am looking to get an opinion on what would you choose for this build in PVP:

    Why that specific amount of Str and Dex? You won't have any weapons do much damage unless you buff them with a Faith buff, and even then it's probably better to raise faith and drop Str/Dex.

    The build is finished so i cant add points.

    I was going for 20/16 strenght faith for an obsidian build but i wanted to have more option (can do the zweihander etc).

    Hello

    Thats an interesting build. Do you enjoy greatswords or curved greatswords?

    Those are my favorites: Server, Flamberge, Murakumo, Greatlord Greatsword, Man serpent Greatsword and with those stats you can wield even a Zweihander. Take them out for a test drive.

    If sometimes you get tired of STR and want to try out some dex weapons, take the Great scythe

    I love them at PVE i find them very slow and not that much damaginf for PVP (Slow swings makes them low DPS), hard to hit too... I was a katana user and i am trying things this way but cant seem to get it right.... Currently i have a +5 Chaos Clay, a +15 Zwei; a +5 Light Flamberge; a +10 Ocult Scythe, and a +15 Man serpent...

    Cant seem to win much with any though......

    Well my sugestion is to keep practicing. STR weapons may be slow but they are viable and in the right hands can devastate. Its true that the greatswords speed got nerfed and a shame for STR users...

    Mixing attacks with a dextery backup weapon may help.

    Also, with 24 STR and 30 faith, both Occult and pure phisical weapons will do low damage, but if combined, they will hit like a truck

    Take that Man serpent Greatsword and buff it with sunlight/darkmoon blade and see the results

    A gravelord sword would match your stats almost perfectly. However, any weapon buffed with sunlight blade should be good enough.

    You could also use a divine / occult weapon, but you will get less damage compared to normal with a buff.

    Remember, two handing a weapon raises your str to 36. That is pretty high.

    I am betting my last breath on the buffs, hoping they will kick this build to the top league..



    Yesterday i has fighting someone with chain armor with my + 5 chaos claymore (with more than 10 humanity) i was hitting for low 200 damage and after i win that player gave me 2000 souls (very low level) wich means, i will find very very difficult to match myself againt other sl100 builds.....

    Chain armor... only 200 damage............

    you can pretty much use anything but make sure you buff otherwise its gonna do crap damage. like car said, the msgs would be one of the best choices ince youre very close to 27 which if you two hand your weapon its the same as having 40 str.

    Will try it 2 handed with darkmoonblade to see the kick.

    Hope it does some damage winking

    How about stuning? Does any of this are any good at?

    I think the zwei stublocks how about the others?

    The way you made your stats, no weapon except for the elementals will do a lot of damage because you don't have 40 in a scaling stat. Your best bet is to use the miracle Sunlight Blade to enhance the damage of a +15 weapon.

    With your stats, pick an aforementioned weapon and attune a Faith buff. Try them all out and find your favorite. If you ever get in a bind where you can't buff or it wears off, you can always switch to a chaos weapon, the Gravelord Greatsword, or the Obsidian Greatsword. You can even just buff the Obsidian Greatsword and still have decent damage with it without a buff.

    with those stats the msgs is still better than the ogs and if you buff it will hit hard. ogs is better for low levels and that r2 kinda sucks since it very situational. the zwei and greatsword stunlock btw.
