    Max Damage from Str Build

    Post by Ghadis_God on Tue Jan 15, 2013 10:13 pm

    Ever wondered how much damage you could do if you squeezed every drop of damage possible out of the strongest Str weapon? Sure you can do it at SL700 or something like that if you ever bothered getting that high, but what about at SL100? On a viable build at SL100? If you don't mind being a Dragon, and using the Dragon roar to boost damage, this build hits harder than anything. Don't forget to menu swap RtsR. Also, it's supposed to be a Crystal DGA, AR 767 when 2handed. Remember that Zwei with 40/40? This has 150 more AR than that. AR also has increasing returns, so that's a lot more damage. http://tinyurl.com/d73q96j

    Aren't some of the standard glass cannon equipment things like "Power within" and Red tear stone? Might wanna fit those in.

    RtsR is a menu swap, I mentioned it in the OP. The real point of this build was to be able to get the benefit of having 99 Str, by using 66 Str and 2handing it. Power within, as well as the SLB buff are good ideas, but putting it on will have opponents running away and dodging the whole match because they know you will hit them hard and they can just wait it out and kill you. If you look fragile you're more likely to trade hits, which is one thing I've found while playing as a dragon. Ultimately, the dragon roar is like its own PW in itself, and SLB is a bit unreliable. The point was to have just Str, and while using just that, hit as hard as a buffed class.

    i had an sl 120 with 66 str and it was pretty good but damn making a build like that with the dragon body kinda sucks since you'll get ohko'd with pretty much anything(bs or riposte) its still fun to use though..

    Nah, I have a Dragon build with 1590 HP and I managed a 16 streak in the arena, bses and ripostes ignore most defense anyway so being a dragon isn't a massive loss. If they want to have a bs match I can slap on a hornet ring for a few ohkos of my own, provided I roar.

    I was using the dragon body last night ane I was getting my *** kicked, all they die was bsed and they were laggy, it didnt help t hat most hosts in the township are maxed sl. I've been playing with my quaoity build way too much, kinda felt rusty with my str build.

    I'm having trouble going back from a dragon to a normal build, I keep trying to press square to roar and get those clutch hits. Even if it's not ideal I'd like to try this.

    Something to consider guys, with the DGM, you can use the leo ring and get a counter attack with the rolling R1 for a thrust attack. It might produce even higher results of damage.

    I'm pretty sure its not a thrust attack.

    It is with the zweihander, though that doesn't necessarily mean it is with the dgm.

    I know the attack is a thrust, but I haven't tested if it counts as thrust type damage.

    It probably does, but the most powerful thrust attack in the game is the Greatsword's 2hR2 I'm pretty sure. I might want to try that one out with the roar+Leo ring, though it might be tough to get a counter with such a slow weapon.
