    build help

    Post by Virulas on Fri Mar 29, 2013 10:49 pm

    The current build i want to use is http://mmdks.com/1n8y
    What changes, if any would you make to it? What do you see its pros and cons being?

    Its meant mostly for Co-Op. Self sufficiency and high damage through my melee weapon (+15 claymore) and pyromancies/miracle.

    A couple questions: Why Firestorm instead of Fire Tempest? Why Havel's Ring? It's almost wasted. Either get lighter or make more use of your burden. Life is kind of low as well, could do with some leveling. SL 106 is a strange stopping point, do intend on staying there? I don't really get giving up a slot for the Homeward miracle. Why not just use bones?

    Other than that it's fine, all those spells will give you versatility, you have excellent poise, and the Claymore is a dependable weapon.

    The homeward spell is mostly there so i dont have to rely on the bones, i dont know where to get them all the time and im almost always running out.

    As for my SL, i plan on upgrading some strength and dexterity but i dont know by how much. Havel's Ring , i can do without that i mostly am trying to stick to medium weight for my roll.

    The pyromancies i plan on messing around with a bit more, but i know for sure i want to take Toxic Mist, in case the host needs to make a get away and i wanna block an invaders path to give the host time

    A variety of vendors in Dark Souls sell HBs in infinite supply for cheap.

    Much better. Life is still a little low, but I suppose you can manage. Just get out of fat roll territory and you're golden.

    Your SL is a bit high for Co-Op. Depending on where you want to get Jolly. at 100+ you're pretty much hoping for NG+ Co-Op which in my experience is really slow

    Depends on where you wanna co op. 20 is good for Gargs. 30 can do depths / Btown 35 is good for Sen's 40-45 for Anor Londo 60 works for most of the DLC and Lord Soul area's (DLC gets good summons, demon ruins...not so much. Dukes 2nd bonfire is pretty popular though. So is New Londo)

    I'd like to point out this page:
    http://darksoulswiki.wikispaces.com/Guide+to+Co-operative+Play

    It shows optimal SL and summon frequencies for co-op. DLC hasn't been properly tested yet, it seems, but I imagine it being pretty high frequency at about the same SL at Gwyn.

    ok so im not sure if your still accepting help for your build but i did try to make your build better for co-op http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=336752579133383649

    i felt the fat roll wasnt going to help you or your host so you are now at med roll, i gave another attunment for an extra spell i thought might help and i swapped out a few spells also, i gave you the grass sheild instead also becuase with the stam i gave you i felt it would benefit you more though you still have equip burden room to switch it back if you want, i also gave more health so you can keep going in tough times and be able to saty and defend your host longer, and the cloranthy ring is really just a fill in ring so should you feel that you do not need it or if the situation demands a different ring you can swap it. so believe that covers the changes and i hope you like it XD
