    Bosses and whatnot, what "builds" are they?

    Post by bla on Thu Jan 17, 2013 10:17 am

    Just for laughs if you had the describe bosses and the more unique enemies.

    Something simple like strength dexterity caster buff caster etc.

    Asylum demon: strength
    Taurus demon: strength
    Hellkyte wyvern: strength/pyro
    Armored tusk: strenght/poise
    Gargoyles: dex/pyro/gankers
    titanite demon: strength/lightning caster
    Quelaag: dex/pyro
    Bonewheel skeletons: stamina

    Choosing a build for a completely not humanoid boss like the hellkite is kinda weird, but ok.

    So what are the gargoyles? Since they use halberts and little round shields i'd say they're probably dex builds, despite their size. And casters of course, with the flame attack.
    So dex/caster, aaight?

    Bonewheels are obviously stamina stackers.

    Cloranthy ring using, 40 endurance rocking, FaP ring wearing, child mask using, grass eating, rollers with thorn armor.

    Alright then:

    Gargoyles: dexterity/casters
    Had then pegged for strength but they do combo you. Also if considering tactics: GANKERS. At least during half the fight

    Bonewheel skeletons: stamina
    Right on the money IMO

    I'll had another:
    Armored boar: Strength/Resistance?/Poise

    They're not really a boss though, not even a mini-boss really. More like a-holes. lol!

    Gargoyles I would amend to say Dex/Pyro since caster implies (in my opinion, feel free to consider pyro a caster) that they've invested stats to cast. Also, dex/pyro gankers is definitely a build.


    Quelaag is the solo dex/pyro build type. No ganking there unless you consider her puppies a tactical advantage.

    Armored Tusk, is what i believe they're called, are definitely poise stackers. Sadly there's no explanation for their body's weapon reflection.

    What about titanite demons? They're f*cking hackers i tell you, they cast a spell that doesn't exist!

    Btw, you should edit the main post with the new ones! like:
    Asylum demon: strength
    Taurus demon: strength
    Hellkyte wyvern: strength/caster
    Gargoyle: dex/pyro
    Quelaag: dex/pyro
    etc.

    Btw, i wouldn't classify the hellkite as strength. He's clearly a caster with his firebreath, but he doesn't use a weapon, so how could we know if he has str or dex at all? In fact, he fights with his claws, which are bladed and relatively small, so if anything he's a dex build.

    I use "caster" because many enemies simply have abilities that player characters can't have, so the designation is more like special moves/spells thing. However pyro fits the wyvern well so pyro it is.

    As for dex, I think it should be related to attack speed not just the weapon or equipment.

    Case in point:
    Gwyn: strength/dex

    So
    titanite demon: strength/lightning caster

    Next: the capra demon! He's kinda weird because he dual wields strength weapons, but fights very fast and fluent with them. So i guess he's str/dex? Then again, for him they're not ultra greatswords, for him they're just straightswords.

    Also i'm sure no one needs to point out what Dolin is :D

    Dolin? Oh, Gwyndolin

    But there's more to him. I'd say:
    Gwyndolin: caster/shooter?

    Capra demon: strength/dex seems right

    Artorias: Jack of all trades, master of....

    most fools who mess with him!

    His divine sword suggests he's a high level build where he's thrown points just about everywhere. I bet he even pumped some into resistance.

    So what would you say?

    Artorias: strength/dex/buff caster?

    Something like that?

    Gwyndolin might have invested points in dex for his arrow attack. Ironically he doesn't seem to be using the darkmoon bow. Or is he and is the magic damage just so small that my healthbar doesn't visibly change when i block it?

    Artorias is indeed a buff caster! Never thought of it like that. Interestingly, Artorias would have invested in str, dex, fth AND int, but he doesn't use the fth and int anymore when you fight him. Only his original greatsword made use of that.

    Another thing about the hellkite: you list him as strength because his melee attacks are relatively slow and don't combo. But lemme point out that that's partially caused by his size. You should look past that and see that, relative to his size, his attacks are pretty damn fast. I would simply list him as pyro, with not further labels. It's your thread, just do whatever you like, i'm just saying my thoughts.

    Gwyn is a buff user. Obviously. He's so op he can buff a non-buffable sword.

    How do you think Gwyn is so powerful, even without his lordsoul? Plus the fact that you can parry him, unlike most bosses. Gwyn isn't a boss, he's just a hacker who hacked the game so hard that he invaded all of our games at once!
