    Top Tier PvP Builds?

    Post by the zen on Tue Apr 09, 2013 7:26 am

    I've been PvPing for about two weeks now. I've seen a lot of variety in builds (which is good), but I haven't been able to isolate the wheat from the chaff other than:

    WotG
    Grass or GMB
    Resins/Blade Spells on weapons

    Where can I find some top tier builds to try to improve my game?

    I've tried google, but there's so many theme builds (Necromancer based on Castle Crashers using Undead Rapport .. sounds legit :roll: )

    I'm currently sl 260. My points are distributed in such a way that I can utilize any build that doesn't rely on Int. I'm currently using

    Med Encumbrance
    Murakumo
    Stone Greatshield
    Mask of the Child
    Havel's Armor
    Wolf Ring
    Ring of Protection and Favor

    Darkmoon Blade
    Sunlight Blade
    Great Magic Barrier
    WotG
    Great Combustion (Rarely used, if ever)

    Where can I find some solid advice to step up my game?

    I have to say that sl260 puts you out or range for the "normal" PVP meta. Most of us would say at that sl, you should be able to be any build you can think of.

    Truly competetive PVP happens at around sl100-130. That way players are forced to min/max and make sacrifices with what they can and can not do.

    Also when asking for help, please post your stats so that everyone can see exactly what you are working with.

    For regular PVP SL260 is waaay too high. Best going to the forest for some pvp. SL100-120 is the usual range. Normally for the 100-120 range, you pick 1 type of build and stick to that(put most points in dex, str, int or faith). On average you've 40-45 vit, 40 end and spread the rest around whatver path you want.

    Any build is top-tier that has two or more of the following:

    -27, 28, or 40 Strength.
    -40 to 45 Dexterity.
    -32 to 45 Intelligence.
    -30 to 50 Faith.

    And both of the following:

    -40+ Vitality.
    -Fast roll.

    While using at least one main-hand weapon that is one of the following:
    -Curved Greatswords
    -Curved Swords
    -Greatswords
    -Halberds
    -Katanas
    -Spears
    -Straight Swords
    -Thrusting Swords

    Yes, I mentioned I can utilize any build other than Int due to my high SL. Some of the numbers may be skewed but it's approx:

    Approximate
    Vit 46
    End 96
    Att 20
    Res 32

    Exact
    Str 40
    Dex 40
    Int 20
    Fai 40

    Yeah I've been in the forest. The question isn't so much which path I want, but which path would yield the best results. I understand there are multiple successful and viable builds in this game (which makes it a good game), but certainly not all builds are viable. I imagine just like any fighter or MMO, there are a handful of "top" builds that are successful and used by the best of the best. My question is where can I find these, or who are famous competitive DS players with youtubes or streams?

    Currently I have all that but fast roll (been stacking end and will soon be switching to that). Thank you for narrowing down the weapon selection. I hear all split-damage weapons suck.

    Any build can be great in the right hands, its mostly based off of player skill. But I dont think your asking for stats here you want what equipment is best used for str or dex correct?
