    Is 40/40 worth it?

    Post by KnightSolaire0 on Fri Apr 26, 2013 6:31 pm

    I have a 28/40 quality build that preforms rather well, however I keep having the thought of bumping it to 40/40 for the extra damage + access to strength weapons. But whenever I go for it, I always reconsider. Shrug
    So I ask you, what would be better for performance, 28/40 or 40/40?

    ta-da, one possibility for a 40/40, you could also switch the battle axe for a shield i guess.

    All of my 40-40 builds are the same.
    SL 120
    40 VIT
    45 END
    40 STR
    40 DEX
    Base stats in everything else, you can get it from starting as a Warrior or Bandit. I've really loved it as you can use every weapon besides weapons that need Faith or Intelligence. Also, all the C/C weapons receive amazing damage from it. Seeing as you can use almost every weapon, you can mix it up as much as you want, so invaders/invadees never know what to expect from you. Makes it even funner if you're hosting and you keep getting the same guy who keeps trying to parry fish you but he can't because he can't get used to the weapon. Gotta Point Down.

    It is if youre going past sl 100.

    Edit; I meant if you don't care about the arena caps. But imo you really don't need but this is coming from someone that 2hs his weapons most of the time.

    This. 40/40 is probably the most powerful melee build you can make for SL 120. You maximize virtually every weapon's AR and have such flexibility, you can custom tailor your weapons to your host's weapons.

    Yes if you want to get the most from C/C scaling weapons and have the most variety...

    At 40-40, Washing Pole is stronger than Uchi.

    If you like 1H I recommend 40/40 past SL 100. Their 1H moveset is murderous with any weapon.
