    Is it just me?

    Post by Jodecho on Wed Jan 23, 2013 11:14 am

    ok first off i wasnt sure if i should post this is the pvp or general board, because it is pvp related but i find it to be more of a discussion piece. anyways....

    am i the only person that prefers low level pvp? i have multiple characters in the sl 100 to 120 and even some as high as 250 and it is absolutely boring pvping with characters that high. once you reach a certain level i find that you loose specialization that makes your character unique. part of this is the game engines fault for making skills past 40 almost worthless so your almost forced to put points into other areas. is this necessarily bad? i dont think so, it rounds out your character and makes it even more of a beast. but on the flip side it also make your character more a less just like everyone elses character. sure people will use different armor and weapons but i feel that once you go above sl 80 you completely loose individuality.

    when you pvp at lower levels you (usually) face off agains characters with more of a specialization. people know exactly what they wanna do with their character and they maxamize thier SL to turn this character into a powerhouse. this is easily seen by anyone who has ever done a SL 1 run. by the time you beat O&S you are generally so good at dodging that your low health doesnt matter, and your weapons are already maxed, pushing out rediculous ammounts of damage. with just a handfull of levels pumped into that character it can be turned into a unstoppable force. sure you wont be able to crystal weapon your dragon king greataxe with a low level character, but thats the point. when you specialize, and make adjustments, maybe even sacrafice one talent to increase another you end up with a much better killing machine, and more tallented players using them.

    ok im done ranting, thanks for listening.

    xbox gamertag Jodecho pvping sl 1, 10, 30, 50, 65, 80, 95 and above (rarely and shamefully)

    I dont really like pvping anything under 50, unless its co-op pvp per say. Vit gouging elemental weapons seem to be the most dominant build.

    I think you get more unique builds at around sl 150 to 200, but when I say that people think I'm crazy, so I wont say it.....wait.....aw dang sad

    But ya dude, low level pvp can be fun sometimes. If thats your preference then more power to ya I say.

    I feel pretty much the same way. sl 120 is too high if you ask me. Gives every character build something to work with at pretty much max efficiency. Most builds you see are gonna have at least 40 vit and 40 dex/str and 30 fth/mag. Whereas in the 50-80 range, you get pretty much one thing to specialize in and nothing else. At sl 120, i feel like you just see a bunch of the same things really. Wotg/Dark Bead sunlight blade/crystal magic weapon. No real reason to not use any of those at 120 because you can fit them into any build.

    None of my characters are above 45, because I use them mostly for co-op. Lately I wanted to train my PVP skillls a bit and did some forrest PVP (sl 40). Sometimes I had to wait 8 min., but once someone invades you, they keep coming all at once xD

    I generally stick between 70 and 100. For the reasons you mentioned. I have a 120, an 80, an 82 and a 100 atm. I spend the most time on the 100 str build, though if I re-did it I could probably drop it to 90 without sacrificing anything. (it was an experiment with the dga initially, which I swapped for the dgm, so I have some extra points in str and end)

    I think anything over 120 is too much, and 100 is perfect to stay specialized. I admit that I really like SL 55 PvP, though.

    Tough one...I admit low level pvp can be fun, but its so easy to get oneshotted by cheap elemental weapons that it gets frustanting, I much prefer the SL 100 or 125 builds.
