    SL99 Moonlight Build, Suggestions Needed

    Post by Nybbles on Mon Jan 14, 2013 2:11 pm

    i haven't made this build or another one like it, so i'm looking for some opinions from you good folks.

    so far i am planning on making a SL99 build that uses the moonlight great sword as my primary weapon and the moonlight butterfly horn as a secondary weapon. i'm not too worried about what shield i'm going to use, i can make anything work, from the dark hand to the silver knight shield. i think being under 25% equip load would be important for this build, but i don't want to wear any ugly skirts either, i was thinking that the Lord's Blade set looks pretty bad *** but it might be too heavy?

    i haven't picked any spells, i was thinking of having three copies of the most basic version of soul arrow. i don't plan on relying too heavily on castings, soul arrow is a fast cast and has better tracking that i thought it would, plus i don't want to rely on souls spear or dark magic as my source of damage, so it seems to fit my needs.

    this is what i have come up with on mugenmonkey http://mmdks.com/rl8

    thoughts?

    EDIT…i plan on swapping between logan's catalyst and an enchanted compound bow, i loaded the compound bow into the slot because it is heavier than the catalyst and set my endurance to that.

    EDIT: my spells arn't ideal, but I'm without the dlc. If you have it the extra att to get pursuiers instead of hcsm could be a good Idea.

    Switching the composite bow to +5 magic with moonlight arrows would change your damage from 397 to 516.

    Moonlight is heavily associated with stealth, so I think it'd be a great idea to have a hidden body spell.

    I highly suggest using hidden weapon if it works with your weapons. It'll be ridiculously effective since both weapons have special skills and they're really long.

    This is how I would make your build. Bows aren't necesarry when you have CSS/Soul Arrow, and since weight is such a precious thing these days menu swap the horn.

    Sorry didn't read that you don't want dark magic. Try 2 CSS, HCSM and GSA.

    it's not that i won't use dark sorcery, i just don't want to rely on sorcery as my main source of damage. i think of sorcery as more of a back up plan or added versatility in most cases. dark magic, crystal soul spear and homing crystal soul mass are just too tempting to never want to use them.

    most of the time i like to swap around the weapons and armour on each of my builds, depending on what i feel like at the time. for this build, my weapon choices will be pretty much limited to the MLGS and MLBH due to the low STR DEX stats. so i'll be swapping spells around as i need/want to instead.

    i don't think that this even matters but i've started the build and i'm calling it my Eclipse build.

    i think i have settled on my stats now, i might still fudge VIT and END because i know that i won't stick with just the Lord's Blade armour, we'll have to see.

    EDIT: man it's going to be long slog to Seath. my current weapons suck! can't wait to get my greedy mitts on the MLGS!

    I understand you, I have a melee based pure Int tank that I called the mage knight. It's pretty awesome.

    Here he is lol. He uses the spells as backup so I'm better off with TCC.
