    is the Abyss Greatsword any good?

    Post by raecor14 on Sat Apr 27, 2013 2:12 am

    I'm thinking about making a build centered around this weapon, it has to be light roll and i would rather SL100. do you think its possible to make an effective one?

    At least that's what I'd do, AND I'd get to finally start as a deprived on a pvp build

    Sucks that all that extra Faith doesn't help the sword's AR one iota. :|

    I feel like the humanity scaling makes up for it.

    Armor is very optional.

    This is what I use http://mmdks.com/2348

    If you're gravelording it looks just like artorias. The karmic justice is to mimic his charge attack. Total cosplay build with decent dmg output but dont expect much other than coolness factor.

    Speaking of cosplay...I had a killer intro back when I did PVP as Artorias.

    1. Be in township bonfire area.
    2. Have these spells equipped: Dark Fog and Chameleon.
    3. Be in Human form.
    4. Go down 1st small flight of stairs and around the corner from bonfire. Make sure to stand out of sight so invader cannot see you.
    5. Wait for invader to arrive at fog wall near start of area.
    6. Toss the Dark Fog a little ahead of you. The invader should back up a little, wondering why the heck you cast that spell so early. Little do they know you are using it for effect!
    7. Quickly cast Chameleon and tern into a "crystal rock" and scoot into the Dark Fog smoke before it starts to dissipate.
    8. As soon as you can start to see through the Dark Myst, tap block for a micro-second while you are moving slowly forward. Your Chameleon form will explode in dynamic fashion and there will be Artorias slowing walking forward... DOOM INCARNATE!


    Hehe... too bad I was so bad at PVP.

    It's only worth it at higher levels imo, none of those builds do even close to the damage of a MSGS build with 27 Str 2handing. In fact, those builds have the same AR, on a heavy greatsword, as a katana with 40 dex. Your opponent can trade katana hits with you on that build and come out on top, not to mention other weapons the same size. It's only strong at 27/40 when it gets the same AR as the Mura with its great reach.

    This is how you make an Abyss sword build. http://mmdks.com/24pe PW puts more emphasis on the unusually high AR of the abyss sword, there's no point in investing in a stat-heavy endgame weapon otherwise as its AR is its only strong point along with its reach.

    Edit: Scratch that, Knight gauntlets are the better choice. They give you some more weight to work with along with a few more defense.
