    Some weapon help?

    Post by Thundergrip on Tue Apr 30, 2013 8:14 pm

    So I'm making a vitality build, because it's one of the only builds I've never tried before.

    The problem is - I know nothing about vit builds. I'm trying to make it at least somewhat viable for pvp. Right now, this is what I've got: http://mmdks.com/24p5

    Some veterans help me out: what weapons should I be trying on these low dex/str stats? I was actually leaning towards the one-handed hammers for the poise break. Are the blacksmith hammers any good?

    Here's mine
    Vitality builds don't need good armour since they rarely die if you know what you're doing.
    I only use 56 poise because you need 55 to survive a greatsword running attack without getting your poise broken.

    Thanks for the armor tip - I actually prefer mid-roll to fast when I can get away with it, but on this build it might be worth going fast.

    I'd prolly play this: Partizan/BSS/Claw

    I'd only swap to the Partizan when needed. Otherwise, it would be the Barbed Straight Sword.

    I'd swap out SKS for Crest Shield when appropriate. But for 14 str, you can't beat the Silver Knight Shield.

    Thorn hands for extra Claw damage, and bonus rolling effect/s.

    Gives me a legit reason to have 10 humanity.

    31 poise...katana vs BSS/Claws/Partizan sounds pretty good to me twisted

    How to make vitality build:

    -Pick a weapon.
    -Make it Chaos +5.
    -Get the minimum Strength and Dexterity for it.
    -Get any armor set that gives you 32 poise.
    -Get enough Endurance to fast roll.
    -Everything else in Vitality.
    -Go back in time to 1.05 when vit-gouge wasn't terrible.
