    Opinions Needed : Gravelording Strength Build

    Post by ExecutionerTri on Sun Jan 20, 2013 3:07 pm

    So I made this last night for fun since I dont mess with Strength very often I thought it would be a nice change of pace. Just want to get some feedback for future variations of the build please

    http://mmdks.com/u47

    Alternate Weapons Im using

    Large Club
    Crystal Large Club
    Demon Great Machete
    Crystal Demon Great Machete
    Reinforced Club
    Crystal Reinforced Club
    Gravelord Sword
    Butcher Knife
    Crystal Butcher Knife

    Im also swapping the Helm for the Royal Helm when Im using a club for the viking look. Still working on clearing some of the game to get the Guardian Gauntlets and Leggings as well.

    I think it's good, allows you to use a wide range of weapons like the murakumo but also kick *** with the great club, allows you to fast roll AND has decent poise.

    I like it

    well I wanted to keep it at the level 100. I hit my key points on all other attributes so if I go up to a 125 or 120 Ill be sitting on 40+ strength at that point but for now I can weild a ton of different weapons with the stg I have

    Your strength is fine, especiially since you're only SL100

    Think about it. If you want to make a strength build, you should make strength your number one priority. Don't be afraid to lose some vit or health in order to get to at least 40. You can't even use some strength weapons with both hands if you only have 28.

    add 20 to my strength to take me to the normal 120 range and you get 148 while not sacrificing any vit or end. there isnt a weapon strength wise that I cant use at that point.

    He said that when he becomes SL120 he'll have 40 strength, meaning there won't be a strength weapon he couldn't use

    That's being naive. This build has a lot going for it, and with the poise and defenses he's got going he'll get more hits in in the long run anyway. Going for 40STR just because it's a strength build severely limits your ability to be creative. It looks like a fun build!

    Lose the buff, you don't need it. The large club is backstab-bait enough as it is, if you buff yourself, your opponents will only either run away or bs you. Very few people will actually fight you straight up, and you won't have a very fun time using it. Also, go pure Str! There's enough weapons of all sizes that you can make a pure Str build without any Dex.

    How's this look? http://mmdks.com/uav

    How would I go about in getting this in earlier soul levels? I'm just curious if its possible or even worth it? I'm fairly new to pvp but I like the this pvp convent because the idea behind it is interesting. I want to pvp a little bit while trying reach SL120 but I'm not sure what kind of build to go with as I've never done it before.

    hi zero, welcom to the forums. nice hijacking btw....jk. if its your fisrt time playing through the game i reccomend you to beat the game first and make a high sl toon and try all the weapons, then start thinking about making a str, quality, dex, int, faith or a mix of two of those mentioned once you get to know the weapons you like, check out this http://soulswiki.forumsrpg.com/t14581-reim-s-guide-to-making-builds it should help

    all my gravelord toons have incorporated the gravelord greatsword. so 24/13 is where it's at. i've also found that i seem to get much more PVP in that soul level range between SL45 and SL60 than i do at SL99 to SL120 for some reason.

    i think it depends where youre gl'ing at, i get a lot of blues(not dm) when i gravelord the arty arena and township. sl 99 btw. 45-60 would be perfect for sens up to the lord areas, i dont really do anything but coop on those sl's so i might be wrong.

    yup 45-60 seems to work in every area after the bell gargoyles, even the depths (farming eyes) and blight town work fairly well at that soul level.

    the bonfire in darkroot forest is one of my favorite places to gravelord at any level. i would think that the burg would be a good place to gravelord in the 120 soul level range?

    I had a ton of activity in the Painted World yesterday but I need to move to NG+ to really take full advantage of this since I cleared so much of the world already

    yes you did, I was in there testing out some weapons on this build and I saw you come in. I remember because Blaine is my middle name and it stood out

    *Edit* Im also there right now, trying to learn some move sets for these large strength weapons. I cant lie I feel lost without my iiato and chaos blade but I really need to branch out a bit so here I stand club in hand waiting to get invaded
