    Another Dex/Pyro Build...

    Post by Noob-of-Artorias on Tue Jan 22, 2013 10:43 pm

    I know, I know, highly unoriginal, but highly effective.

    Been using this for a few days, I gotta say, I'm digging level 100 PVP.

    Never used the Silver Knight Spear before...but after the past few days, I think it's now going to be a staple of my builds.

    All I can say is if you went pyromancer you would of been SL 99 which might be better for pvp, but no bigs.

    Higher HP, max casting speed. You don't need 40 End for a katana. Just by swapping to the spear via menu saves you a lot of equipload + you can use a bow. Chaos Blade is the best choice for a pure Dex, unless you really love Iaito's moveset. Badass looks btw, love them.

    Oh no, I'll have to settle for 40 Vit instead of 41 silly

    That build is definitely amazing, but as you said, I love the Iaito's moveset, and I'm also terrible at menu swapping silly

    I also like having maximum endurance, just something I've gotten acclimated to, I can deal with lower health.

    As for max casting speed...I've never noticed enough of a difference between 40 and 45 to merit the extra points.

    Thanks for the imput though Wyrm, hopefully I'll see you on the battlefield twisted

    Too bad I'm on PS3. Menu swapping isn't so hard if you change the order of the weapons, and if you're dueling. Since the SL cap is lower + DWGR nerf equipload is just too precious.

    Since we're all posting Dex/Pyros, let's try this one out.

    over the 36 poise break for the 1h greatsword swings.
    maximum dexterity casting speed (remove one point of dex for stingy FC rules.) Menu swapping capability for anything 6 pounds or under.
    dragoncrest dusk crown for maximum damage, which can also be swapped into a wolf ring which would allow you to take a hit from a UGS, a dark wood grain for spear flipping, hornet ring for countering BS fishers, and Leo Ring for a bonus to any sort of thrusting attack.

    Oh, and the armor looks great together.

    I must admit, it takes a real man to fight pantsless

    Ironically, this character is female.

    One of my builds has that armor combination but with sorcerer boots, looks classy as hell. Female as well.

    That's actually a very effective looking setup, max casting speed, good hp, 60 poise, and I love the great scythe.

    I'm currently making this, because I feel that SL 120 will die and PvP meta will move to SL 99-100.

    Nice build, I was wondering where to cap my end. I can see yours is at 30.
    I would have thought dex builds need max stamina. I mainly used str toons till recently. Just wondering why not go to 40?

    I have just enough End to wear my favourite gear and have a 0,5 spare for 1,5 weapon to switch with the Compostie Bow, or 2,5 if I switch Chaos Blade for a 5 Weight weapon. I actually wanted to have 33 End to have 1,5 spare, for bigger shields and 1,5 weapon, but I would have to lower Vit to 43 and I don't like it that much. I like how my HP is almost round 1700 now. Well...I may do that after all. It does sound more practical.

    I've got two spellsword characters with 25 End and it's enough for Dex weapons. You can boost Stamina recovery with Grass Crest Shield, Mask of Child (although I would never wear something this ugly) and I have a nasty adiction to Green Blossom, which usually takes care of all my Stamina needs.

    40 End means sacrifices. I can't move my stats, they're perfect as they are, so I would have to reduce Vit to 36, which is 1486 HP instead of 1663/1708. It would also give me a lot of unnescesary Equip Burden, that I wouldn't use.

    I prefer to have a 3 Weigth Shield with a spell source in left hand slots and to be able to wield at least a total of 6 Weight in weapons in my right hand slots, 7 is ideal though, so I can muster Chaos Blade with Dark Silver Tracer/Bow.
