    Build Help - Capping at Sl120 - NG+ and some PvP

    Post by Shykon on Thu Mar 28, 2013 5:45 pm

    Hey guys,
    I'm kinda new to Darksouls and i need help with a build that is viable for NG+ and PvP (i plan on capping at 120). I have just got to the end of my first playthrough, but want to sort a build out before entering NG+.



    My current build is: http://mmdks.com/1mkw. I've been told that my build is a mess and that i should just reroll, is this the case?



    What i want is a build that is capable of fast rolling, is tanky-ish (mainly high phys res). I don't really mind re-rolling if necessary.



    Now the weapon....the most important part. I want something that is not too slow (i.e no ultra GS), but hits for a decent amount of damage. Dex or str....I don't mind. I've tried the scythe and found it to take too long to swing, leaving me vulnerable. The washing pole was fast, but dealt too little damage for my liking. Any suggestions?



    Gear i have no clue, but i was thinking of mixing elite knights with something.



    Magic...I've no experience with it, so any tips or recommendations would be cool.


    Any help would be greatly appreciated!


    Regards,

    That build is such a giant mess that my computer is saying the link is broken.

    Not that bad but repairable. Perhaps this can work?

    I'd personally stick with the Scythe, abuse the running R1 and followups.

    Attunement is there if you want to have pyros, although I'm not a fan.

    You're build ain't broke at all, as a matter of fact, you can sport one of the best in the game: MoM,DS,GMB

    If this is one of your first pvp builds, then the build I stated would give you a great build to learn with. You have your MoM, a great spear, GMB, a bow, DWGR, and it even hits the 21 poise breakpoint. Also, the armor I used is fantastic from a statistical point of view.

    This build would allow you to play semi-competitively with advanced players, and give you a great look at multiple playstyles because of the survivability of the build.

    You could 1 hand the Mura if you choose, and even compliment that with the Gold Tracer or Dark Silver Tracer if you chose to later.

    Good luck man, Bow

    Is the silver knight sword worth it? does'nt seem to scale well. Looks like a good build though, will it work well in both pve+pvp?

    Though this looks like a solid build (especially for pvp) the lack of poise worrys me. I'm guessing it would need some tweaking for pve? How big are the DR if you allocate stats past 40?


    What i want is to be tanky, fastroll and a fast wep. Spears seem ok, but tbh i was edging more towards a sword or katana.

    The silver knight sword has good speed with wide horizontal attacks. I figured I would try something other than a katana for speed. Though a uhci would net 420 on a 15+ path, a chaos blade with 10 humanity would be 452. Now a claymore is 499 at 15+. My slight issue was the armor. Elite knight is heavy though with Tarkus' leggings you net the same poise as wearing the whole elite set, while being able to fast roll still. I only put points in faith for extra healing but you can put those points into str or for a bit more endurance.

    As for PvE and PvP I say it will work well in both but my stance is that the build is based by the player's skill in using it.

    Hmm the gear choices + stats i like the look of, looks like my kind of thing. I'm just not a fan of the sword tbh. I just tried the claymore, nice speed but not sure about the skillset. Any other weapon recommendations that would work well? Pref something (no slower than claymore) that used both dex+str (so that neither stat goes to waste)

    Most straight swords that allow fast roll would be 340-398 with those stats.
    Curved swords would 398-421 depending on the type. Expect the furysword which would be 510 with 10 humanity.
    Only the uhci and chaos blade have power to them, being 420 to 452 respectably. The washing pole and liato both are 410.

    Really it is your choice but this is what you get with the stats of the build I posted.

    Well right now i'm focussing on PvE, so i may try the furysword. Out of curiousity what type of weapons are people using in PvE and PvP? (I.E +15, light, fire)

    From my experience, I see a load of +15 Ricard's and BSS, buffed with Sunlight Blade. I get a few katanas, used in the same manner, and occasionally someone with a Longsword, or Broadsword.

    Note: Broadsword is epic.
