    stats vs elements

    Post by drmuto on Wed Jan 09, 2013 10:59 am

    for example lets say im 14 dex wepons going to be rapier, is it best to go with lightning and keep the low dex with no scaling or is it worth spending the points in dex if im trying to keep a low lvl build?

    so essentially im asking dex> end or vit true or false?

    Depends on how high you want to go. If you're going to sl 80-120 anyway then you might as well make it dex from the start. But otherwise it's better to use an elemental weapon.
    It also depends on what kind of a build you want to make. If you'd prefer to go for a vitality monster then you can make it elemental, But if you'd rather make a dex build/buff build then you should make it dexterity.

    i was thinking sl 50 low vit doesn't bother me but low end does :S i like my fast rolls :roll:
    only buff i would use would be poison resin so not that important

    Then you should make it elemental. It'll be best for such a low level.

    Yeah, they do more damage. But they're only really worth it at higher levels (80 and upwards).

    EDIT. I'm not saying it can't be done (I have a sl 55 dex build, and i do surprisingly well with it). But it's not the most efficient option.
