    Playstyles

    Post by LunarFog on Tue Mar 19, 2013 7:33 pm

    We always talk about builds, but what about playstyles? I'm sure everyone has a certain playstyle that makes certain builds compatible. Sure you can change your playstyle, but there's always going to be that one that comes more naturally or easier than others.

    My natural play-style is anything that allows me to not fight in a fight. I do best when I'm either outranging, turtling, or poisoning the other person. Sure I have the reflexes and intuition to fight head-to-head with other people, but I'd rather use my skills to make sure I don't get hit at all.

    Spears, bows, and plague are all what's easiest for me to use.

    When it comes to PvP I haven't used much, just weapons. I don't want to leave myself open while I use a spell, so I don't.

    It depends on my weapon at the time. I'm somewhere between being aggressive and baiting & punishing, though.

    And I like to position myself so I'll always win a trade or hopefully both avoid my opponent's attack and land my own.

    As X saw me do, I like to go on a mini suicidal rush with a greatsword. I am often punished for this, but enemies with 0 poise will be ripped apart by 2h r2 spam!

    Wait, think and strike. Never put myself in an position to be hit and I analyze the opponent's movements, build and items. The rhythm that you use will be studied and turned against you with my own and it's adaption to yours. A katana is not meant to be spammed but used as the weapon of most skill and victories through patience and training . When I strike it will hurt you.

    Cleric/Tank. I'm the opposite of you lunar.

    Heavy weapons and armor, augmented by buffs and crowd control. I'm at my best (read:most natural) in the thick of head on confrontations, weilding weapons like the greatsword.

    I'll note, I'm not especially aggressive with this playstyle, I need to land hits with my heavy weapon, and the best way to do that is to trade. I attack a lot, but its to force moves or condition my enemies.

    I enjoy the "normal" weapons and equipment.


    You know, things that are or at least similar to knights and the original classes


    Dragon and Demons weapons only in rare occasions.

    about playstyle, well, I'm that douche that likes to roll in, poke, roll away... it usually works even with ultra GSes big grin

    I prefer throwing spells at my opponent until their nothing but a pile of ash. I'm a very aggressive Wizard. The Eye

    Overload.
    Sadly, not compatible with Dark Souls, but if I can find a way to overload you, I will.


    I'm that gal that in Starcraft attacks you from 12 different places at once and successfully manages all my units. I'm also the kind to Unload all the ammunition from 15 different guns into you all in a row, and then reload.

    In dark souls, the only way to do this is to R1 spam or spell spam, and neither is effective because nothing bolsters your ability to do it, only how long you can do it at a time. An overloading playstyle is built around doing anything that allows you to throw... MORE... FASTER at your opponent, until eventually there is no humanly possible way to keep track of everything going on.

    After that, Glass cannons, and after that, the economic battle of attrition. I'm good at number games pretty much.

    When it come to strategy, I'm terrible. However, I am good at the war of attrition. I go and make a sandwich, come back, I've won a war. If only real conflicts were so easy to solve.

    Swap weapons and tactics in order to counter your playstyle as best as I'm equipped to. I'll also bait with small hit and runs or something similar, then once you make a mistake or get comfortable I'm waiting to exploit it, and hit hard, usually stun locking for a few hits or some such.
    Of course, this requires me to have enough time and battlefield control to be able to go about it, so it can be tough in some cases.

    ^I like that, I'd say I alternate between predictive aggressive and reactive aggressive based on my opponent's actions.

    I personally think I'm true reactive. I can be reactive aggresive/reactive defensive depending on my opponent though.

    I've tried almost everything. When invading, I'm normally more of an assassin. But I've also tried classic knight, tank, mage, etc.

    Edit: Probs closest to true neutral silly

    I play like an honor brigade type when dueling.I pass up on backstabs unless the other guy spams something.I tend to bait attacks on more passive players and lead them into a poke from my katana or two hit combo from my claymore(I hate stunlocks).

    If I'm invading,I act either ballsy or casual to make my opponents arrogant and think they can kill me,then I flip through their attacks and backstab them.I also love to use force right before they hit so they fall over.I tend to go easy on lone questers but the gankers get backstabbed to death every time.

    I'm a reactionist.

    I sit there for a second waiting for the first move.

    Do you unwisely reveal your second weapon early?

    Do you cast with no set ups?

    Are you an obvious aggressor?


    It doesnt take long to tell.

    The bs fishers are so stupid most of the time, I usually try to lure them to an edge and kick em off or something.

    The careless stunlockers are too easy to parry. Do they ALWAYS swing twice? The good ones are sporadic.

    After determining a couple things like this is usually go into tempo mode. I carry a wide array of spells with my caster so its not uncommon for me to "scare" you with a combustion knowing full well I might not hit. Sometimes I'll throw Dark Beads at a distance just to get you rolling.

    I like setting up Strong Magic Shield with HCSM. It offers an aggressive style if I want it, or a "temptank" if I choose. Sometimes its the first thing I cast if you got "elfears".

    Then I set up and decide what combo is going to kill you. twisted

    I'm more True Aggressive. I like to rush things with 90+poise and a greatsword.
