    Help me on my DEX/Vitality Build

    Post by LagStab on Sat Jun 01, 2013 11:34 am

    Currently, out of sheer confusion, I use a Chaos Blade/Lifehunt Sychte/Lightening/fire washing pole.

    Those are my weapons of choice for my dex build, I will occasionally try to tank w/ Giants Armor/Great Lords Greatsword, but very rarely as I hate the slowness.

    Here is my usual set up:
    Weapons: Lifehunt Sychte/Washing Pole or Washing pole/Chaos Blade
    Armor: Moonlit Robes, basically for the looks, as I try to dodge most attacks
    Method of fighting: Strike/Roll, or strike, stun lock opponent with many of strikes

    How those that look, any tips on improving it?

    http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/ Please use this to show more clearly what you use.

    Whenever I do a Dex build, I use a full +15 Great schythe.

    Basically: http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=354006040584577535

    But, the weapons are upgraded fully, and I switch on/off with weapons with the washing pole

    IT is in itself not a very good buid, but I might suggest something like: http://mmdks.com/2k61

    You loose the ninja flip, but gain some much needed poise. I did not want to change any armor, it is a poor choice but was for cosplay right?


    http://mmdks.com/2k62 If you are willing to change a little armor

    Iiato is found in upper blight town, on a platform you have to jump to. (you could also use the Uchigatana, which you can buy from Shiva or you can kill the burg merchant and take his)

    the Great Scythe is found in the Catacombs, the easiest way to get to it is jumping off the first rotating bridge.

    You could try using the chaos blade for the highest rate of bleed to build up the person's bar and then switch to or have a Priscilla weapon in your other hand for the strongest bleed(50% instead of 30%).

    I'd wear a cloranthy ring and Mask of Child for more stamina. Get heavier armor so you can tank some hits while you keep spamming R1 for the bleed. Maybe have a whip in your left hand in anticipation for parry-spammers since you know people are going to be trying to do that?

    ~~~~

    As for improving the build stat-wise, I'd personally start over since 55 dex is excessive.

    You don't need a whip to punish parry attempts, in fact I'd say it's better to just BS the parry whiff. Why bother hitting them with a noodle with sub par AR from your offhand when you could take that Chaos Blade and introduce it to their spine
