    I've preferred SL 99/100 builds lately because you get invaded/invade people who aren't actually looking for duels. It's much funner. Also, you really have to think out your build at that level.

    Just to give an example: At SL 99, if you see someone using Pursuers you can be sure they don't have very much VIT/END, and if they do they'll probably have an elemental weapon.


    At SL 120, they can have 40 DEX, 50 INT, and 40 VIT, and still have plenty of END to hold up 53 poise with a Wolf Ring.
    Not happening at SL 99.

    Builds should be complete at SL 100. Builds become "superman" in nature and dont have any drawbacks when you go over that SL.

    Dibs gave a pretty accurate example.

    I'm actually starting to like Sl 50/55 more and more because the builds are more unique and require you to make additional sacrifices.

    Look at Reim's signature in one of his posts. Has all the stuff about soul levels and places.

    I love coop'ing on that sl but from my experience there is no variety, everyone has a katana or a claymore(chaos) and the mom, I rarely see a unique build(host or vader)

    :Baal02: In tribute to the great wyrmhero...may he soon return. :Baal02:

    I now declare SL 150 the new SL cap

    About sl 100.

    -People tend to forget that it only started because of the arena, not because of optimization.

    -The nerf to the DWGR, MoM, and some weapon's stunlocking ability really put a damper on an already struggling to compete weapon class.

    -The only thing people (imo) really didnt like about 120 was how optimized a dex build could be in comparison to other builds.

    Personally, I dont like lower soul level pvp. Most of it is just elemental weapons. Sure there are other builds at that soul level, but they are the minority.

    I really like the forum having its own "soul level" though. Pretty cool idea. I'm sure I'd enjoy the events.

    Imo, there's not much you gain at 120 in comparison to 100. There are some clear lopsidedness to it all I guess. I prefer 120-150. I really don't care if my opponent has an extra 45 health points and 10 poise, its not that big imo.

    Also, imo, I dont think builds become "superhuman" until sl 200-250, IF at all.

    sl 99 was a soft cap as soon as the game was out, a lot of people switched to sl 100 because of the arena but people don't care about sl really, a lot of youtubers and guys on twich have sl 125 to 130.

    I used to be purely 120, in fact I used to have to add extra points in random places because I didn't know where to put them. Shrug
    Haven't had that problem since I converted to SL 99/100, I've also found a lot funner, albeit vaguely, PvP.

    Then again, if you get invaded the other person is liable to run away as soon as they are in danger, which is the only thing I hate about SL 100 PvP.

    So many runners...

    I like dueling at 120 because it's the only SL where a 40/40 build starts to become viable, opening up all my favorite weapons to use, but I have a 28/40 at 100 and it's another favorite.

    i get invaded constantly on my SL200s, but SL100-120 is the "pvp" level.

    SL50-55 is the same as a SL100 but just uses Ele weapons instead of scaling.

    Burg and Moonlight garden is a good spot to duel SL120 to SL130...
