    is SL120 pvp viable?

    Post by Anchises on Sat Feb 16, 2013 2:36 pm

    Got another pvp SL question.

    So I haven't used a build past 100 since 1.06 and was wondering whether or not invasions at SL120 are still viable.

    I have this build

    http://mmdks.com/15dg

    which gets me decent invasions in most busy places, Royal Wood, DR Forest, Anor Londo, the Burg, but I was thinking about bringing her up to SL120 so I can add a bit of faith(namely GMB for gank hunting).

    I just wasn't sure if leveling up any more was going to leave me nothing but forest hunters pvp, which I like but invasions are fun.

    How the *** you fight with 1100 HP??? You must be super skillful. Anyway I made a SL 150 version, gets good action anywhere.

    PvP from 100~200 is still pretty active. I get tons of invasions with my Sl200 mage. It'd be best to go with Wyrm's suggested build. But i feel that you should change your armor setup to get better defense. Because at 99 soft humanity, you only get like 294 overall defense which sucks. Getting your Fth up to the 20+ levels just for GMB is honestly a waste of stats. Just practice dodging those magics and you'll be fine.

    Here's my version. I lowered the Vit to 45 because you get tons of diminishing returns after 45 and 1708 is a lot. The remaining points i put into Int, Att and End. This setup is better with 346 overall def and looks swag with the Golem Leggings. And you'll look like Alex Mercer. 8)

    Overall, the build would have been significantly better if you didn't waste those points into Str. 27/40 is more than enough.

    Opinion of most competetive players I know is that the most legit level range to duel is SL 100-120 and I'm one of these guys (you also get most action on these levels).
    I think anything over 120 is over doing it, but once again, it's just a matter of opinion.

    100-125 is the accepted PVP range, it was speculated that 100 would become the new go to SL because of the arena, but the arena is almost constantly dead anyway, so 120 is still the default.
