    Spellblade/sword build. Doable?

    Post by bart95 on Wed May 29, 2013 6:30 pm

    So far I've been following this guide: http://i.imgur.com/3wg9b.jpg

    It seems solid enough, but having just beat the tauraus demon I'd like some second opinions or suggestions.

    This was done by ENB originally.
    It's a decent build, but the fact is it's only good for PvE. While people may disagree with me on that because it has CMW + BSS + 40 Dexterity, I can promise you if you're going to use this build you'd better be playing offline.

    Don't play offline in my opinion. You don't have to have a great PvP build to play online. It's fun to get REKT every now and then.

    Its fun to try other people's builds, but you'll see the greatest power in one you make yourself. regardless of the stats a very cruddy build to some are godlike to others.

    It's a fun build, one I do myself. Not the best, but fun.

    What's your current stats?

    For a spell sword, I recommend doing it this way:

    Starting class: wanderer. Scimitar is an excellent weapon early game. Lightweight, fast spam attack.

    Keep int at 10. Level up dex/end. Grab Oolacile Ivory Catalyst, get Magic Weapon.

    Push int to 15 only when you reach anor londo for greater magic weapon. Get your dex / end to 40, vit to 25 or so for PvE. Then push int last.

    post the stats you have atm and we can whip a better build together.

    here are a few variants for you to consider (all with pvp as fokus):

    http://mmdks.com/2j3n dark magic specialist with access to all the good dex weapons
    http://mmdks.com/2j3q vit and poise is more copetetive, weapon selection lowered but still good enough
    http://mmdks.com/2j3t low int is very viable thx to oolacile cat., no longer access too pursuers but better stamina and vit, a buff thrown in the mix.
    http://mmdks.com/2j3w finally the faith version, best for buffing, good utility spells

    I have a build like that. 45 Dex and 44 Int, with 25 End and 25+ Vit.
    It's great!
    You sacrifice your HP and Stamina for greater damage, so it's the same as having more HP, but less damage of the 'usual' build.

    Not exactly my expertise but here's how I would make a spell sword

    http://mmdks.com/2j7x

    1.) High defense/Vit(With enough room for sturdier armor if you want)

    2.) 50 faith for strongest buff possible

    3.) Straightsword for fast, spammable attacks. NOT a curved sword so you can still throw in a couple kicks to both break their guard and discourage parrying. Back up enchanted weapon for when it runs out

    4.) Used faith instead of magic because the way I see it, sorceries are for main forms of attack(and stealth if you use oolacile sorceries). Miracles are geared more towards SUPPORT, and in this case it's supporting your buffed weapon.

    5.) Ring of FAP/Cloranthy ring to regen stamina faster. The key to buffed builds is to never stop attacking.
