    Tank? What does that mean? (sarcasm)

    Post by Dutchy on Mon Apr 01, 2013 2:47 am

    Yesterday I started a tank build, with full giants +5 except for mask of the father, and it's pretty wrong. I remember when I came upon a tank in my older builds it was damn near impossible to bring him down. Mine dies from one backstab. Granted I havn't got vit up that much yet as he's not finished, but seriously! Is there even a point to be a tank? I may as well flip around in a ninja suit, dodging all attacks and backstabbing with hornet ring? What am I doing wrong?

    Attack behind you to BS cancel, always, if they are even remotely near your side. You can offset maybe 80% of backstab fishes this way.

    Giant's does not have nearly enough defence, you may want to do a google search for JerpDoesGames's fatroll tank build if you want something feasible. Defence in DkS is not very useful generally (Defence, not poise, poise is god), you really have to assemble the right things to make it work.

    backstabs negate most of your defense.

    Get a fast, wide swinging weapon or Force if you want to fight against backstabs.

    Swing unlocked to your sides. This will help stop BS attempts and you'll start learning to dead angle.

    be patient! It's not a Father of the year race. Good Dads wait till the time is right.

    If that doesn't work find a housewife and double team your problems with parental power.

    Learn to kick bro. I responded to one of your other threads saying the same thing. jblackmel's videos on youtube demonstrate the awe inspiring effectiveness of the humble kick against BS attempts.

    If your using a UGS or similarly slow weapon, learn to play in delock.

    If your using a rapier do the kick equivalent for the rapier while delocked, it tends to work better that way.

    If you've got a curved sword... I dunno I don't really use those a whole lot. Maybe I should make a Falchion build sometime

    My friend actually made this build and he says that he kills pretty much everyone. Tanking, correctly, actually requires some skill as most experienced players can easily kill tank, whether it be by magic or a hornet stab.
    If you are getting backstabbed then try using the large/great club or the dragon tooth for the roll attacks, both 1h and 2h are very good against BSs.

    You know I remembered something from ye old days.

    Gouging more END having lower Vit and using MoM ALWAYS results in more HP.

    IN this case you need to go to 44 Vit 72 End to become the housewife.

    The legend never dies, but the man makes the legend.

    I'm sorry, I take advantage of every opportunity to make a crappy cliche quote. silly
