    Should SL 55 be standard PVP level?

    Post by Seignar on Tue Jan 29, 2013 7:25 pm

    Making invasion builds, it got me thinking. Should 55 be the standard PVP level instead of 100? I know this game is "too old" for us to change that and with the sequel coming in. But it is something I would like to discuss. It is easier to reach and it is harder to establish a build with no weakness due to your allowed stat points being halved. If you want your maxed damage then you really need to dedicate points and leave yourself vulnerable.

    You sure Large Weapon with 0 poise is viable? Are you going hollow?
    I would just come in with a Dark Silver Tracer...

    P.S: Fast Roll is overrated, Medium is totally viable.

    Nah. I personaly think level 350 should be a Standard. Fast Rolling Havels with Dragonslayer spear and Silver Knight Shield seems pretty balanced >:3 Shrug

    Have you ever struck a full plated man in Giant's Armor with over 300 defense in all categories with an elemental Katana? You'll need 10 hits and 4 to stagger. I'll only need 5 and 1 to stagger. Maybe less, considering your defenses...

    I'll just answer your question and say no because SL 55 builds would not lead to more variety. Everyone would use elemental katana and claymores. I don't care if mid-roll is viable or not - people will still use DEX/elemental builds.

    Well, considering there is an upcoming event focused around sl55, I guess it should be a main PvP level. Mind you, you could say that about any event.

    An SL where I can make a viable Grant build with similar HP to a Dex build is the perfect SL for me.

    hell no!!! NOONE would use str builds anymore, it would all be elemental katanas(its already bad as it is) yes the build you posted is viable but with med roll anyone can just hit and run your *** if youre not careful, if you meet someone as skilled as you the odds are against you.

    No. SL 55 has its place. But, 100 is better, IMO. Especially with heavy Str weapons.

    Yup, 55 is good for invading and short-notice new build making. But for PvP (as in duels) it's too low, inhibits variety. I like 80, 100, or 120.

    I like it for our events for quick building because we like to see fresh new looks for these things, but it is a bit limiting for a standard default meta.

    was kids wearing fog rings and using lightning uchis and invincible shield buffs for me.. sprinkle in some gc's that hit like a truck too for good measure.

    Or even better. Crystal Ring shield with Lightning Uchi +5. No boss was a challenge. I hated the fog ring, backstabs were everywhere, since you could'nt get a damn hit on any of the people wearing them.
