    SL100 Arena Build

    Are there any improvements I can make to this build? I'll probably also be using it for invasions.

    It looks way too close to my planned "critical build".

    Really?

    I tend to focus on crits, punish by parrying mostly. I suppose that it's a good thing though xD seeing as you're undoubtedly very knowledgeable in what a good build is.

    Mine is similar, slightly less poise and less defense, but it has more vitality. And, mine isn't as butt ugly as yours will be. silly

    Fair warning, the HR will piss some people off. I say it is fair. The pokes of the rapiers deal very weak damage. Crits are where the true damage is, and they can be avoided in most cases.

    Oh I know silly My main build is an Estoc wielder.

    And you think so? I think the elite knight armor looks great. And I don't see how much more than 50 vitality could be useful.

    Giant armor + hollow "dress" = ugly in my book.

    EDIT: mine will be ugly, but not as ugly.

    Edited for more hp, changed to 31 poise breakpoint rather than 53, going to do more dodging instead.

    Also added 2 extra attunement slots for more heal casts, Glgs dances, and the ability to switch out bow for GC/black flame. Can also switch out GCS for Crest or tower kite.

    Edit: With this version, I also get to keep most of my look as a "Knight." lol!:roll:
    What do you guys think?

    I think the Gravelord Sword Dance might not be the best for invasions. It can be pulled off in the arena, if you're smart.

    Artorias' armor looks surprisingly cool with the mom mask.

    Well yeah, for invasions, I'd probably stick to a few pyromancies mostly. Maybe if I can get my hands on a bunch of cracked red eye orbs? I'd like to make this char a gravelord tho, I've never really tried it more than once. It will also boost the effectiveness of the GLGS dance.

    Artorias' armor would be an option too, seeing as his stuff weighs about the same as the knight set. However, its protection is much lower, so I can use it when I'm feeling less serious.

    A question.

    What weapon(s) do you think would be best to use during PvE for this character? For example, I don't think a rapier would be very effective against most bosses. But assuming 11 strength, 12 dex, what would you recommend?

    Would lightning be okay?

    And why gargoyle over plain halberd?

    Straight swords would be a good substitute. Coop.

    I was thinking the same thing. I actually like the feel of the broadsword. Would this be a bad weapon to go lightning with?

    EDIT: Took away some endurance because I found a lighter set with 31+ poise. Added power within along with a 4th attunement slot. Is power within an alright idea?

    Lightning is good for PvE.

    Whichever you like, I like both and switch between them for roleplay. Chaos's higher AR is usually negated by high fire resistance of most armors, but since everyone wants to fast roll it's good on robes. Lightning in the other case is good against heavy armors. I'd say choose the 1 that matches the theme of the build.

    Well I'd probably say lightning fits the idea of co-op in places like sens or anor londo, while chaos fits four lords places, dlc, pvp. Is the power within a bad idea? And I'm trying to decide if I really need as much endurance as I put in that 3rd version. I put as much as I would need to wield both the rapier and broadsword at once

    so you're just going for backstabs and parries i assume?

    what do you do when they adapt to that playstyle.

    Hmm, I guess I should have a backup weapon shouldn't I? What would you recommend? I'll probably be starting building this today.

    Sorry for not adding to the discussion,been lurking for some time and i have a question.
    All the sl 100 builds i see presented here are actually sl 99,what is the reason for this?
    I ask because i am currently making a sl 100 strength build but should it be 99 in the end for some reason i am unaware off,if that is the case i will regret putting that 1 sl into res so all my stats would be even numbers lol.

    no, not at all. People only do 99 if it works out to be how they like it at their number or for coolness points. Go 100 by all means.
