    Ideas to make this build tankier?

    Post by densetsushun on Mon Feb 04, 2013 1:13 pm

    This is my current build:
    bit.ly/WTRSQr

    I'm planning on upping strength and maybe endurance to 40, I'm mainly looking for a good greatshield, I may use Grant or the Crescent Axe but my Occult Bastard does quite a lot of damage already at this point. I'm also planning on making a Darkmoon Bow.

    Any ideas on how to improve this build's tanky-ness?

    Edit: Because I wanna make it a tank, I don't mind going up to fatroll.

    Damn, your build is pretty messed up lol. I just min/maxed to SL 150, but the low HP is killing you. A tank has to got HP.

    Yeah, I never planned on making it a tank until recently and also stupidly spent points in dex for the DSS that I never use :x I might just end up rerolling him but I wanna give it one last shot.

    Edit: The int is also a mistake in experimentation. I definitely just might reroll it.

    The other option is a glass cannon faith mage. DSS will have max AR 2H with the stats I gave you. SL 150 has good activity at Burg btw.

    Thanks for the advice anyway, I might just sit on it while I play with my other lower leveled, but much more optimized buils silly

    What level are you trying to go to, did you want to stay around sl 107 or 120 or as high as 150?

    This is what I would recommend for a stat spread.. way too much attunement on the last one. But I don't usually make mages. Use replenishment to heal a small amount of HP, and use magic barrier to tank through fast mages. This keeps your mid roll gives you almost double the initial hp... I Don't know what the best points for faith users are, You could lower that to 30 and still have those spells work. With the points you save lowering faith you could boost your attunement for additional wogs or your endurance for a heavy shield. If you get a nice shield karmic justice might be good for a laugh.

    Do you want to be able to parry with your shield? Balder shield looks pretty tanky and it can parry, otherwise I'd say go with one of the heavy shields.

    EDIT: Oh I guess this is mostly useless haha, I didn't realize you already had the character at those stats.. The dex can still be used to your advantage as a quality build but the wasted points in int and att really hold it back I think... I'm not sure I can think of anything to do for it. http://mmdks.com/10ct ?

    Yeah, I was already thinking that I wasted a few too many points, wanted to cap it at 120 but to fix the mistakes I made I'd have to level up far past 120.
