    I need some feedback, I'll check back in tomorrow or in a couple days. My father-in-law is in the hospital and I'm sure I'll be busy with that and work. But I've been dying to make this build when I actually get on sometime this week, and I want to know what you guys think.

    My Griefer: The Guilty Pay the Price

    I have a couple glass cannons I’ve been working on. But this lol, this is for griefing. This is for the indicted that deserve to pay.

    -Crown of DuskCrown of the Dark Sun…Darkmoon Blade, need I say more?

    -Other armor…just wanted 7 poise for daggers and to look good doing it. Actually the Black Leather Boots have better elemental resistance than the Brigand Trousers, so I opt’d for them.

    -BDCR…given / Leo Ring…lol Gough’s Bow and Avelyn…hehehehe.
    The concept is to cast Pursuers and then watch them roll as I stun them with Gough’s Bow or the Avelyn. Carefully shooting them while timing someones roll can be deadly, along with the Leo Ring and Power Within. lol...and then if Pursuers hits...let the hatemail ensue!

    -Black Flame is for obvious reasons, as well as Dark Bead.

    -I have the Silver Pendant equipped for people using Hidden Body or the Fog Ring.

    QUESTIONS

    1) If I'm using the TCC and only have 1 Power Within attuned, then I won't be able to use it right? In other words, I need 2 PWs to equal 1 cast right?

    2) The way it stands (as is in mugenmonkey) is I'll have the following: 3 Pursuers / 9 Dark Beads / 8 Black Flames / 0 Power Within...right?

    3) I'm sure the strategy is clear. Get in, kill, taunt. I dont need poise, imo, and the 7 poise is only for daggers. Any suggestions to armor, strategy, spells, other is all welcomed and appreciated.

    4) I still need to mes with my attunement cycles, I dont think they are right for my combos, but I'll screw with that later. So please disregard the order in which they are attuned.




    @Demon Slayer, were you talking about a build you posted, or were you wanting my ideas on glass cannons?

    Because actually, you guys are probably the experts on that. I make "fightclub casters", spellswords, and the occasional griefer. From what I've seen, I might be asking you guys about glass cannons. I'd be more than happy to give my input though.




    OH AND ONE OTHER THING

    The Gough's Bow states that it gets better scaling from str than dex, but when messing around in mungenmonkey, dex clearly has the advantage...am I imagining this???

    Doesn't matter, the 45 dex is only for Dark Bead, Pursuers, and Black Flame. (DB=9%) (Pursuers=22%) and (BF=apprx 25%...I believe).

    Thanks in advance guys. AND PLEASE DONT HOLD BACK. If you see a huge flaw, you'll be doing me a favor. Just keep in mind, no etiquette, no rules...just killing in a semi-creative way.

    All you would need to do is cast Power Within while your holding Gough's Greatbow in your right hand. TCC only halves your casts when it's out and about. Attuning two PW is a waste of a perfectly good spell slot.

    Helping out my brother is a reward in itself, but now I must go. There are others who need me. Until we meet again!

    Lemme know how it works out for you! I've always wanted to make a build around Gough's but figured archery was too slow to do anything with.

    So I'm thinking I might take this build into Ng+ to get some of the sorceries over, for it to end up like this. (I was also looking it over, and I could actually take it up to 125 pretty easily if I ever wanted to, but that would really only afford me more END and Vit at this point.)

    At any rate, opinions?
