    Need Suggestions/Dex Build Help

    Post by VIcious72 on Mon Feb 27, 2012 12:30 pm

    Hey everybody, hope you're well. Recently returned to this wonderful game, but having a lot of trouble with four kings, and my build in general. I have a Wanderer with the following stats:

    V25
    A14
    E22
    S21
    D30
    R13
    I11
    F8

    My main weapon is a Lightning Spear +5 (does 444 - but more like 60-120 depending on enemy), and my armor is Wanderer set, +8. I also have a Knight shield +5. I don't deal very much damage, hence the 4 kings are kicking my butt. Any suggestions of build/weapon/armor set so I can keep moving forward? Thank you in advance for your help and responses!

    try 2H your weapons and wearing full heavy armour and just tank four kings. That generally works well.

    If you're still having trouble then try and get the very large ember and create a Dex weapon to +14/15 like a katana or something.. Having a high upgrade pyro glove and powerful pyromancy spells will help you too.

    You could try using a larger weapon and 2H making that Lightning/fire.. The thing is for four kings is you want maximum damage output and poise so you can tank and kill one before another appears.

    Also, try to summon someone - who looks like a mage. You may see a catalyst, crown of dusk, LSoM, armor that looks mage-ish. They will help a lot. I have an uberpowerful mage at SL 60 to help with the 4 Kings. It is so powerful that often we are only dealing with 3 kings.

    For my high-dex, low-strength (too low for black knight halberd/axe anyway) characters I use a great scythe on the kings. Fire, lightning, or best of all +15 with the Sunlight Blade buff. I use the 2-handed strong attack pretty much exclusively, so I'm sucking up green blossoms at every opportunity.

    Get a better weapon, you don't need to tank the four kings. I used a fire uchi with light armor and it was a breeze.

    Oh! most importantly, vicious, I'd swap out your knight shield for the crest shield. I don't recommend trying to block ANY of the kings' swings, but the crest shield will really help for their magic attacks.

    Its better to roll through their attacks then to try and block them. I usually use grass crest and two hand my weapon.
