    Fill in the blanks, please

    Post by sure-magicians on Sun Jan 20, 2013 6:25 am

    Every morning after my first coffee I log on here, browse a little and find something new, may it be a particular weapon, or build, or tactic and before I know it it's three hours later... Just browsed the 'top tier weapons' thread for like 70 minutes.

    I can't make up my mind on what to use, I have a ten character slots filled, delete one every few days to start over, read something new, and repeat.

    I need to actually stop reading and get in the game, so I have a rather big request for you veterans here, I have saved my current builds on the character builder, just the stats, no equipment or weapons.

    Would anyone be so kind as to fill in the details, and what you would do with it, I'm not even sure if every build is viable, but if it isn't please say so and I will delete it.

    As of yet I do not have a playstyle, I'm just trying to survive basically.
    Any info, additions, comments are very welcome and highly appreciated, I just need to stick to a particular setup but can't seem to get it right.
    Sorry for the yet another build question topic, and for the long read but I want to get it right so bad I can almost taste it...

    I would be happy to get even one of those looked over and get some suggestions how to make best use of it, if any particular build is lost beyond redemption I'll delete it but since it took me quite some time to build I wanted to check here first.


    I'll add a tl:dr; because I tend to type too much: please equip any of the listed builds, and/or comment on how to use it effectively, or just tell me it's best to delete it and start again.


    Thank you in advance for taking the time! Proper Bow

    Just a small suggestion, make multiple PSN accounts. I have like five that I play on, so 50 characters available across them and I use nearly every slot. Make one for Co-Op, PvP, and General, then whatever else you need for spill over accounts. It works pretty well, just set them to auto-log in haha.

    Remembering that many passwords is a *****, so keep it written down somewhere.

    I was actually thinking about that, and I don't mind playing the PvE bit but it takes me around 30 hours or so to get to 100-120, and that is with some nice presents from a kind forum member.

    I was hoping that at least one of my builds would be good or decent enough, when using the right weapons and equipment, and with lots of practice ofcourse to use in pvp...

    The SL 126-127 can be reduced to something like this:

    I wouldn't worry about casting speed much if your build is melee based, so 45 Dex isn't necessary. Still if you feel like you really need max cast speed then just redce End and equip lighter armor.

    Your SL 130s are Murakumo/Server builds that can become quality builds with those stats. If you 2 hand any C/C weapon you'll get max AR from it.

    http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=352110375355280022

    Change armor/rings according to weapon.

    Something really quickly I threw together for the 126, seems viable enough with a focus on anti-magic.

    Awesome guys, many thanks for taking the time to help me out!

    So all is not lost, that's great because those builds are already done, I just wasn't sure how to properly use them.

    I saved all three suggestions on the planner and will most certainly use it to finish my builds.

    Thanks again! Proper Bow

    Quick question, should I go with Lightning on this one or level up Dexterity and use regular +15?
    Also any improvements would be appreciated...

    Elemental wespons are useless if you already have stats near 40. The best way to use them is with minimum stats. In my opinion the build would work best at 28/40.

    Yes, but sadly the build is already done, and I don't really feel like starting over again so I am gonna make the best of it.


    I checked on the character planner and lightning is 564 while +15 at 40/35 is listed as 531, so that is why I asked.

    At 40/40 it's almost the same so I went ahead and leveled dexterity to 40 and upgraded the weapon to +14.
    I messed up with Siegmeyer so the +15 will have to wait sad

    But thank you for your reply!

    When looking at AR, you need to see how much damage each does.

    If someone has Physical Protection of 100, and 100 for lightning.

    And you have a weapon that does 150 Physical, 150 Lightning. Simplified, 100 damage gets through.

    If you have an enemy with 100 physical protection.

    And you have a weapon that does 250 physical damage. 150 damage would get through.

    The first one would have an AR of 300, the second 250. But the second would actually deal more damage.

    OK, but in anything but PvE I can't tell how my opponents defenses are, unless I know every detail of the most commonly used armor sets, correct?
    And since I'm busy enough as is when the fight starts, I would recognize a sack if I saw one but that would be it.
    Well that and the Sunlight Maggot...

    But, to dummy it down for me, since it's complex enough already lol, the Murakumo with str.dex. being 40/40, would generally do more damage at +15 then at lightning +5?

    Yes.

    There are certain heavy sets, and a few light ones to watch out for. Such as the Painting Guardian Set, high magic resist. Havels/Guardian, Magic. Stone/Smough's/Giant's, Lightning, Black Iron fire, Giant's/Black Iron, physical.
