    True Gravelord build (RP-ish)?

    Post by Eisen on Sat Jun 08, 2013 11:18 am

    Feel like some RP yet making an effective build at the same time but don't know what "path" to choose on this.

    Requirements: Gravelord Sword, Gravelord (Great)sword dance miracle(s)

    Any help with this?

    Funny I too just started a new character wit the intention of being a gravelord for RP purposes I made a sorcerer. Looking to make a Cowardly wizard that uses minions (gravelording) instead of invading. It's my first sorcerer so I fully expect to get killed a lot in one on one happy

    Since you are one of Nito's followers, you should focus more on unleashing a miasma of death and disease. Have some toxic mist and poison mist. Have a DST as well. WoG is also good (since Nito has a similar spell).

    You'll want to start with cleric.

    You'll want high faith, and about 4 or 5 attunement slots.

    This is how I'd do it. http://mmdks.com/2npy

    Dark hand, 55 poise, fast roll, 120 http://mmdks.com/2nrf
    Balder shield, 30 poise, aesthetics based, 130 http://mmdks.com/2nrg
    78 poise, midroll, great shield, high faith, 130 http://mmdks.com/2nrh

    The level 130 because I assume you will mainly just be gravelording.

    I hate double posting, but your text is nigh impossible to read if someone is on their phone and their brightness isn't fully up. It is not too much a problem for the majority but I suggest a slight tone down in color.

    The level 130 because I assume you will mainly just be gravelording.
    Why are you wasting so many points in Dex? The GLS has double E scaling, and therefore putting any amount of extra points in Dex or Strength is virtually useless compared to where else you could put them. Personally, I think that a Gravelord build is most effective at level 55 or around that, as the GLS will out-damage most all elemental weapons, rather than being hopelessly outclassed at higher levels by other weapons.

    Here is something I came up with: http://mmdks.com/2nsj

    Granted; a level 55 build prevents you from having as dedicated of a Gravelord build you might want.

    This is a more intersting 125 build I whipped up; http://mmdks.com/2nsv
    According to a friend of mine; the curved greatswords are good in offhand, so that's where I put the GLS, as it has good poisebreak and supplements the faster BSS. I used TWoP so you could actually land the GLGSD miracle on people and make them fear Nito's blades. The armor is a bit of a mish mash that I figured would fit the theme well enough, while maintaining fast roll and granting 40 poise, though I'm sure there's a better combination somewhere. WoG is there for RP purposes and utility.
