    A build I wanted to try

    Post by EeAyEss on Fri Jan 04, 2013 8:12 pm

    I like bows, and always wanted to try the Darkmoon Bow. Same with the Dragonslayer Spear.

    So I figured, why not both? (yaaaaaayyyyy)

    Here it is; the goal is to "keep your distance":

    Build looks good (if you're Ok with low HP), but you do know that an Occult Composite Bow (for example) will do more damage than the DM Bow?

    Really? hmmm... but I have the dss for close quarters... which was what I consider the composite bow for... but I'll make one for backup. Thanks!

    I love both the DM Bow and the DSS, they look so classy. I tweaked it a little, should look badass.

    I'm actually working on a build right now that only makes use of weapons that naturally scale with 3 or more stats. At the moment I'm switching back and forth between the Cursed GSoA and the DSS. I've been pretty pleasantly surprised by the DSS. It has amazing range and does really nice damage for a spear if you have the stats to back it up. On the other hand I'm not sure how I really feel about the Arty swords. At my SL, which really isn't all that low, the true GSoA is pretty underwhelming, especially for something that without the use of the interwebs would have been really difficult to figure out how to make.

    composite bow is the best bow in the game. always and forever.

    other than that have fun with the dss. you could use a wide array of dex weapons when the dss loses its shine too.

    twop...

    The ideology behind my use of twop is to keep people away. Same thing with force. Keep the distance. Hence the long spear and the bow.

    If you don't plan to use any pyromancy, you could as well take 5 points from DEX and invest those for more VIT (since 45 DEX is mainly used by people who uses pyros as their main weapon), on the overall is good, get 99 Humanities to maximize your defenses and could also consider to switch the Wolf Ring with the Red Tearstone Ring once your HP get low

    i was debating on 45 dex... it boosts the speed of ALL castings, so a quick force could give me some breathing room. I do know about the 99 humanity thing, that comes by default. lol and was considering the rtsr

    Really nice to give you some breathing room when you're fighting a 2 or 3 on 1 too. Cast it, then duck behind something and heal. Works like a charm. I can't remember the last time I cast it and charged towards someone. Generally I do the exact opposite. Cast and run away.
