    Obsidian Greatsword build

    Post by Lucien Lachance on Sun May 26, 2013 7:40 pm

    I've been visiting an old build of mine that I had half completed. I drew up these stats for it, what do you guys think? Its supposed to use the high base damage of the Obsidian Greatsword combined with it capability to be buffed, using high damage WotG and darkmoon blade.

    I would take off bellowing dragoncrest for wolf ring. When you're buffing an already heavy hitting weapon casting shouldn't have to do that much damage.

    use favor ring and wolf ring, favor is just too good, and wolf ring instead of lingering since 60 seconds is more than enough time to kill someone, specially with that set up since you will 2hko most people. also have you gone above 40 end? try not to go over 40 end ever, specially for a build that doesn't use heavy weapons. also, 46 is a very weird number to cap faith at, go for either 30 or 50. sl 99 maybe? http://mmdks.com/2hgj I tried not to change much since I figured you like your armor.

    I second this, plus canvas instead of darkmoon talisman.

    Well I've never made a pvp build that was lower than 120, is that still an active SL range?

    49 poise wouldn't do it, I'd just say use RANT's build he made. SL99 will get you invasions to the SL125 hosts, so if you're invading it won't matter as long as you don't go over 125.

    Why would you use two WotG? It seem you would be better served using another pyromancy there to provide greater variety or using Magic Barrier to compensate for some of the weakness the Crown of Dusk fits you with. Two WotG and Darkmoon Blade just seems like a bit too much to me.

    49 poise is fine, its enough to take the entire 36 breakpoint no problem, it is a bit short of the 53 greatsword breakpoint however I feel it's mostly just important to be able to poise through the attacks of weapons faster than your own, since he's using a greatsword being under 53 isn't really a big deal.

    Plus from his other build it seems he likes the sage's robe for looks

    120 is still plenty active, but if you already have other 120s perhaps trying out playing at 99/100 will be new and exciting.

    I'm not super well versed but what kind of results do you get if you try to use the 2hR2 after a WoG stagger? I imagine it's not a certain hit, but it also probably isn't heinously punishable, and might even work as a giant trap in some the the smaller dueling areas (PW tower lower Btown)
