    Need help with my build.

    Post by leonardo503 on Fri Mar 22, 2013 8:35 pm

    So im thinking about making this build: http://mmdks.com/1jtr
    What do you guys think? Will power within be viable on pvp without lingering dragoncrest ring?
    Feel free to make any changes!

    I'd change the gauntlets. They have low defense for their weight.

    It looks like a good build. as long as you can catch someone with that weapon and stunlock them you'll win every time.

    I picked thorns gauntlets mainly because sometimes you can negate backstab damage when rolling, and about the weapon, never used the murakumo so I wanted to give it a try, it seems to be a really good dead angle weapon.

    It's a good quality build but doesn't using an un upgraded pyromancy flame lower the damage from power within?

    You'll be fine without the ring.

    Not any more


    This has better physical defense and more health while still incorporating a piece of thorn armor. You lose 4 poise, but I believe the only thing that will affect will be the black knight halberd.

    the poise is at a weird value.. you sure you can't optimize the armor more?
    start off as a bandit.
    swap the flame to ure left hand.
    that's a lot of endurance invested.
    have you considered a heater shield?
    have you considered a wolf ring and more vit?
    your defenses are low considering the havels ring.
    have you considered adding more killing power to the build with the pw?
    what about a sanctus to offset the pw?
    have you thought about adding in healing miracles in case they kite your pw?
    what weapons do you intend to use on swap if you find something the mura can't handle?
    you can't menuswap a rtsr at low hp with that havels ring.

    theres more.. but yeah, theres some food for thought brosef.

    The build is very good but dem looks man! xD

    I made a few modifications on my previous build and I came out with this: http://mmdks.com/1k3p

    the poise is at a weird value.. you sure you can't optimize the armor more?
    start off as a bandit.
    swap the flame to ure left hand.
    that's a lot of endurance invested.

    you can't menuswap a rtsr at low hp with that havels ring.

    Warning, wall of text inbound:

    Spoiler:
    I think I will do fine with 42 poise since im used to fighting without poise and I wanted to have a good looking character.( gotta look cool while murdering ppl big grin)
    Already started as warrior Look Skyward
    Lowered some endurance with the new version of the build.
    I prefer the silver knight shield because of the stability.
    Changed vitality to 45 and I don't think I need a lot of poise.
    Using havel's because I wanted the fast roll while using some poise.
    Don't really want to invest in buffs other than resin's.
    Don't really like the sanctus because of the low stability.
    If they kite me I will probably just run up to them and black flame to the face.
    Probably I will pull out a curved sword or a katana.
    While that's true I think it's okay to use mid roll on the end of the fight with the RTSR.

    I'd reduce Vit to 43 and increase End to 54 to equip a Composite Bow as a secondary weapon.

    Crystal Mura +14 hits harder than regular +15. Chunks are easily farmed and Mura is easily purchased.

    Lowered your vitality in favor of 45 dexterity. You get the quickest cast speed at 45 dex and 1590 hp is more than enough hp for duels.

    I think your armor set looks really cool. Having a high endurance quality build like yours will enable use of pretty much any weapon as well as a change of armor should you find the need in the future.

    To be perfectly honest, I think power within is unnecessary on this build. Your AR is over 600 (750 with lightning resin) and it stun locks. If anything pw will make you overly aggressive resulting in getting parried. I have parried dead angle Mura just by being right in their face off to the side locked off myself when I parry.

    Good luck

    Well I didn't know you could buff crystal weapons! I guess we learn new things everyday huh. The only problem is farming muras and chunks, im so lazy when it comes to farming :|
    I will probably keep 45 dex and hp and make this a 130 build, and about power within, if I feel like I don't need it then I will swap with some other pyromancy.
    Thanks for posting!
