    "Crabsake" - A SL55 Experience

    Post by Killamari on Fri Feb 08, 2013 4:33 am

    I recently attempted to compose a level 55 build for the Ceaseless Assault event coming up soon, and the results were so stunning that I had to share them with you all.

    http://mmdks.com/11xw

    "Crabsake makes a bold and daring journey to the land of lords, in search of souls to reap, and foes to slay. The mentally handicapped soldier of the underworld is on his first ever mission to extinguish all life in his path, like the great evil warriors before him. Never before have his stamina and physique been able to account for his lack in mental capabilities, but it is now his time to shine. He may not accomplish much in his goal, but his persistence and drive to please his elders are all that matters most. He is the great Crabsake, and he his here to slay some foe."

    The character model's face is what sells this build. It's a terrifying, yet deeply emotional grimace that conveys every hope, dream, and disability that Crabsake holds on to, and can't let go of. He is not completely knowledgeable as to the best means of destroying life, hence his use of a bulky wooden hammer and mix-and-matched spell choice, but he will try his very best to the end. Obviously, I'm going way too deep into this character's development, but truthfully, I'm having a blast playing him.

    The success of the Blacksmith Giant Hammer is unbelievable. Every time I win a duel from the stun locking and pure damage output of this mallet, I'm left flabbergasted. This is definitely one of the most underrated weapon classes in Dark Souls. Of course, there are some more detailed concepts here. The 53 Poise and fast roll, which makes for a nice balance between difficulty and entertainment. Let's hope Crabsake gets to make some jaws drop during the event. I'll see you all there for his debut.

    Peace. ~ Killamari

    The blacksmith hammer is a good weapon. A very good weapon, in fact, mostly because of the reach advantage it has over other small hammers. Its damage is also viable enough to not have to put points into Str, the only downside is that you have to kill one of the most useful blacksmiths to get it.

    Yeah, that also goes along with the theme of the character silly

    I suppose he just didn't know any better and went to town on the big blacksmith because he was there and he wanted his weapon.

    Blacksmith Giant Hammer as infinite stunlock and has very high AR at base stats for a hammer so yeah, it's pretty cool. The build lacks HP though, the investment in Faith is not worth the low HP imo.

    Yeah, I see that. I enjoy the speed and mobility of the build though. I rarely get hit, to be honest. And if I do, the hammer usually stun locks before I do. And it just does a lot of damage for 16 STR. It's a lot of fun if you know how to stay evasive and time your attacks and avoid getting BS fished.

    I think hammers are good weapons for tanks though. Their roll and sprint attacks kinda suck. Just 2H the hammer, tank hits and spam away.

    I don't think it does have infinite stunlock Wyrm, most people have been able to escape fairly reliably after the third hit. Not the kind of people who know how to toggle escape either.

    Last time I tested with rant it did, but he was really close. Maybe you can dodge out if you are far from the hammer. IDK

    That's probably it, it works the same way with GS and UGS to some extent.
