    Growing up in the Forest PvP

    Post by reim0027 on Thu Apr 11, 2013 11:23 pm

    Starting next week, I'm going to do another "tour" so to speak (same idea as my "tour of Lordran"). Except it will be a tour of SL through the forest.

    Basically, I'm going to create a SL 380 build and do some PvP at specific SLs. What's nice about it is it satisfies my need to create new builds. It also gives me practice with a variety of PvP weapons. And, it allows me to see the forest through a variety of SLs.

    Careful planning will be needed. You may not get the perfect number for the stats, but it will be interesting to min-max with these requirements.

    Progression rules:

    • Must be a catbro.
    • Stop at the following PvP levels (approximate - a few points variance is OK to meet certain stats): 10, 55, 80, 100, 120, 150, 225, and 380.
    • You must have a elemental build, strength build, dex build, mage, pyro, and miracle builds. You can choose any of the above SLs to have those builds.
    • Obviously, this needs to be one character and their progression, so careful planning is needed. For example: 10 = pyro, 55 = elemental, 80 = dex, 100 = mage, 120 = miracles, 150 = strength, 225 = hybrids, and 380 = everything.


    Rules of engagement:

    • Really? Uhm NO. Anything goes.
    • This is WAR. Act like it.
    • You don't go to the forest for politeness, bonding, fellowship, etc. Those things are frowned upon, in fact. You go to kick some major arse. Nothing less than 100%, stop at nothing to win, is acceptable.


    If any of my fellow catbros are interested in this, they are welcome to join. If any of you hosts are not interested in this, you are welcome to stop me. Gank me, taunt me, laugh at me. I don't go to the forest for puppies, kittens, and rainbows. I go to the forest to take you out, kindly repay me the favor. cheers

    A 120 INT focused build that just happens to have the Str / Dex to have at one time used an elemental Murakumo. Drop it to 100 lowering just INT and you have 28str 25int perfect for CMW buffing say a large club, keep dropping the int to base for the Elemental Murakumo check point (will need a few less attun/vit to make it down to 80 clean) And can easily go up to 150 getting over 40 dex (in fact it can get to 44, if you're willing to go to 151 you'll have max cast speed and can try TCC+Pyro dual wield magic OR CMW a Dex weapon Or both!)

    I tried to keep in mind that it needs to feel different as it levels.

    I will be holding down the forest for the hosts. If my friends are on, they will be with me. If not, I will be by myself (I do not share my Forest with randoms). Hope to see you at some point along your way, Reim.

    According to the rough plan I outlined

    SL 80 http://mmdks.com/1uht
    SL 100 http://mmdks.com/1uhq
    SL 150 http://mmdks.com/1uhw

    The progression looks good, it's all different play styles new weapons. Somewhat bothered that 80 and 150 use a buff, but it's hard to make 6+ builds with only 1 buff amongst them

    I'm half way through planning my builds. It is a little tougher than I thought, but I like it.

    crb - hope to see you there, on the other side!

    First build: SL 10, elemental.

    I may swap out a HR for the DWGR. We'll see what the hosts's Vitality stats are.

    Looks fun. If you go above 380 eventually we can co-op as this build and my currently ~410 build :3

    I'm going to stop at 380 for this one. For PvP, there is no reason to go above 380, assuming your stats are placed in the right spot.

    But, a 380 should be able to coop with a 410.

    Just took out my first SL 710 (and his phantom) in the Forest with my SL 10. I did have a catbro buddy with me though. Still counts!!

    I'm a little salty no one has even mentioned the builds I planned, even if you have your own plan.

    Sorry Jans. I missed your post. If my computer hibernates, all the posts get marked as read. . . . Kinda annoying.

    I like the weapons you are using. Getting your favorite club in. A Murakumo is awesome in the Forest. You should try a Leo ring for your CMH halberd. Imagine the damage a counter poke would do.

    I don't know if I'll do it, but it was actually a lot of fun trying to think about how to make the build 'evolve' into new things.

    That's one of the reasons I'm doing it. The first few choices make big impacts on your future builds, with these restrictions.

    I'm at 26 kills with my SL 10. Wondering how many kills before I go on to the next level. I'm also making a record of the SL of the hosts I kill.

    Had the best invasion possible. It lasted approx 5 seconds. I spawn, toss a Lloyd's, host rushes and spam's R1, Parry, Dead. Awesome!

    Sounds good and it would be great to see the Forest at all those levels.

    I'll create a spread sheet. It'll have the median, mean, and "clumps". By clumps, I any clumps of soul levels. If I have a high percent of hosts within a specific range, I'll make sure to note it.

    Congrats! That is a big feat at very low sl!

    Keep me/us posted as to your current sl. When you get to sl100-150, I will see if i can get Buck, Sayshh or D15 (2 of them at least) to show up and provide you with entertainment.

    You've got a deal. I'm debating how many kills I want before leveling up to the next tier. I'm at 42 right now with my SL 10.

    I was toying with the idea of doing a sl 1 playthrough but this sounds more interesting and I do so love the Forest. I'm going for it. Probably start tonight.

    Cool. It is like a playthrough with planning and leveling up. But, you stay in the forest. Arguably more dangerous than any other PvE place.

    Well, I'm at 80 host kills with my SL 10. Another 20 and I'm going up to the next level.

    Got an sl 10 just about ready to go. A few more tweaks and I'll unleash my pyro on the Forest. This may be the lowest level that I've braved the Forest with......gulp!
