    Need some help deciding on which variation I should use.

    Post by XachAttack on Sun Mar 24, 2013 2:09 pm

    Hey, so I've got 2 variations of the same build, but I'm not sure which one I should pick.

    There's this one: http://mmdks.com/1kmb Which has leftover points put into Str so my quality weapons, which I have a truckload of available, will get more of a boost. But at the cost of 45 dex for max casting speed.


    Then there's this one: http://mmdks.com/1kmd Which has the leftover points put into Dex for the max casting speed, for the cost of less damage for my quality weapons.

    Both have an empty spell slot because I'm unsure of what to put in there. It changes frequently.

    Personally I believe the 2nd build will help me decide what to put in, but I don't use spells that often anyway. However, since I'm more inclined to use my weapons, rather than pyro, I'm kinda leaning towards the first one, which was my original choice.

    So, what do you guys think?

    45 dex for an sl 100 quality build is a waste, if you dont use payro much then you dont need those att slots(i myself had to remade my quality build because i never used my two attuned pyro i had) if you come up against a turtle you dont need pyro since you can swap to a shotel to deal with them.
    you reallyh only need 27 str to get the most out of your weapons(2h), mine looks like this http://mmdks.com/1kmp you can do wahtever you want with the armor, that's just my set up cause it looks awesome.

    I can't not use pyro, control over fire has been a favorite super power of mine since I was little lol. You're right that I could just use 27 str, but I one hand my weapons most of the time, so that little boost will help.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Response a bit late but for what it's worth you can save 4 soul levels by going warrior instead (i believe). ** edit, sorry this is wrong, it comes out the same due to attunement.

    Also, with your stats I would use a mukarumo (or w/e it's called). More of a personal preference than anything (it's heavier but you have plenty of equip left over)

    I use about 19 or so weapons with this build, and the Murakumo is one of them lol. Thanks for the reply o/.

    The Claymore/Longsword combo there is just my most used one, so I decided to put them there, rather than it being empty.

    I think you should invest in Faith for Great Magic Barrier, you never know when an Archmage might stroll on by. winking

    If the only casting you are using is a combustion, then investing in dex is almost a waste.

    Also, the decrease in casting times for pyros in which this applies to start at 35, and max out at 45. The decrease in casting time at 40 dex is definitely noticable. However, having 45 dex for the sole purpose of casting a combustion faster is a waste.

    The only exception is the kick-->combustion combo. Some have stated that having 40 dex results in the combo missing at times, and having 45 dex makes the "misses" less frequent.
