    What setup do you use?

    Post by LittleLuden on Thu Feb 23, 2012 11:06 am

    just beeing curious: what kind of pvp-setup do you prefer?

    i like beeing dressed up in light armor (sometimes way too light...) and using a heavy weapon twohanded, no shield, just a lighter backup-weapon in the pocket. i like it, because it looks cool, unfortunately, i am usually dying quite fast. but it looks cool...

    alternatively i wear light armor with a greatshield, a heavy weapon (plus a lighter second one) and havels ring, cause i can´t carry the weapons otherwise. looks a bit less fancy but is way more effective.

    but unfortuantely i get the best results with the heaviest armor i´m capable of (thanks to havel again) and a long range weapon plus some kind of shield. lame, but works.

    what do you prefer? i´d wish i´d be able to go naked with a big twohanded sword. but i´m just not handy enough.

    I vary a lot, but i prefer a mix of Med and heavy armour with some light armour headpiece for fun and weapons depend on class, though i usually lean more towards Dexterity than Strength weapons.

    Maybe using a shield, maybe having grass shield on my back depends how i feel to be honest

    I have been rocking Black Iron Armor, varying shields (but most often either Sanctus or Grass Crest on my back) and I am switching between Grant +5 and Chaos +5 Great Scythe.

    I switch between these two to keep the Fight Club kids on their toes because they are so different. I might bring out my Dragon Great Axe next!

    Dual weapons all the time, pve and pvp. Mix of med/heavy armor, always havels gloves and legs. Finish it off with a sack on top.

    Dual weapons with a catalyst and a talisman in my backup slots. Black iron chest, black iron arms, Solaire's legs, and a dusk crown. In the past, I've done dual rapiers, and one toon used a shield (heater shield for the fast parry, but I kind of sucked at parrying, so that didn't last).

    Lately I've been ditching the armor and going for light (or none if using the dragon covenant stuff) armor, while two handing a katana. The rampant backstabs kind of forced me into this new style of gameplay, since they can't stab what they can't catch. I once went through a 7 minute duel in Demon's Souls, so I have all the patience in the world.

    For Dex builds: Aways wanderer coat

    For Str builds: aways black iron or black knight chest.

    Then I adapt depeding on the situation, normally with gloves/leggings of thorns, havels, black knight..

    And I like the Pharis hat, if I don't have it I go without helmet! (absolutely no mask, way too ugly)

    Thats funny - I hardly ever see it! 50 matches last night, many katanas, rapiers and BKGA's but no clubs. I use MSGS, GD Machete and Effigy shield too. Its a strength build so I've gone for the best scaling weapons.

    I see that a lot with moonlight greatsword and butterfly spear, not much str weapons indeed

    Still is funny, they can stag you in one hit and have decent poise and ninja flip

    Its a pretty good set up as the crimson fully upgraded has pretty good defence.

    I'd love to go 'club to club' with someone (ooh I say!) but it never happens...big grin

    As I have the stats, usually full giants, but sometimes Elite Knight. I'll swap between a longsword +15, Silver Knights Shield, and Greatsword/Shield of Artorias depending on my mood. I usually have the Cloranthy ring on and swap my second ring for Wolf or Havel's depending on my weight. I always keep to 50% so I can stay dodgy if need be.

    Havel/DWG rings

    left: grass crest shield/pryo (toxic mist/great combustion/2 servings of fire tempest)

    I'm sporting a Zwei setup. I recently changed armor as well, and am loving it. Havel's gauntlets and leggings. Dingy chest. Love the lightning defense. 56 poise prevents stunlock from most weapons, except ultra greatswords.
