    Which path is better?

    Post by FattyOfDoom on Sun Mar 10, 2013 8:32 am

    First of, i want to thank everyone that helped me with my Darksword build! It's in the depths right now and will remain there until i make a SL55 for the future events that may happen. happy
    Anyway, during the Path of the Dragon event i seen many people using different weapons, playstyles which was great but the thing that caught my eye was the weapon paths. If they weren't using a dragon weapon they either used +15, Lightning+5 or Chaos+5. I'm a little confused which one would be better so can anyone give any opinions?
    Chaos/Lightning Path - http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=382523472859669594
    +15 Path - http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=382523472859669594
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Better is subjective, but +15 does more damage and the diminishing returns on stats means its generally more efficient as well.

    +15 is better for if you've invested in scaling stats, lightning and chaos better for base stats, and with chaos you can hit harder by carrying humanity around.

    yes basically it all comes down to what SL you want to work with. if your going to be doing low level SL i would say going with an elemental based weapon is going to get you more damage because elemental damage is fixed. a SL 1 and a SL 100 using a +5 lightning weapon are going to do the same ammount of damage. now a SL 100 using a +15 weapon is going to do WAY more damage than the lower SL character.

    also you cant buff elemental weapons.

    Your builds you listed are both the same build.

    However.. for an SL55 you should probably go elemental, even though it's kinda dull.

    Or if you wanna make your build interesting, create a +15 buffing build with good base damage so the scaling doesn't matter too much winking

    Str works well at 55, but 2handing is required

    What Forum said. A little sacrifice to do it, but it will be more powerful and it can be buffed. I have a +15 shotel SL 55 build and love it.

    http://mmdks.com/1ecb if you want good poise
    http://mmdks.com/1ecc if you want good defense (still decent poise)
    http://mmdks.com/1ecd if you want a mix of both

    Very viable builds.
