    My STR/FTH Build: how can I upgrade it?

    Post by KappaEsse on Sun Jun 16, 2013 10:15 am

    Hi guys, a new member here!

    cheers

    And I just need some advice!

    I am trying to make a STR/FTH build but I'm not sure on what weapons/armor to use...

    This is what I think about: My Build *WIP*

    But:

    1°: can I use a better, enchantable, STR weapon?
    2°: it is a good setup if I want to use the Grant?
    3°: there is a better, long range weapon in RH2 to use as backup?
    4°: I have to change the armor set? What I really need to make this build effective also in defence?

    Thanks for any replies and sorry for my bad English!

    why so much STR?

    I mean you dont need that much if you are not going to use havels shield,

    i change iron round shield to grass crest shield for more stamina recovery, i min max your build a little bit and i added some poise 

    this is what i came up with  https://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=130496135589362582

    50 STR is for the Grant that sometimes I will use...

    But I like your modify, thanks!

    Welcome to the forum! :razz:

    1. If you really wanted to, you could use the Great Club since it's AR is slightly higher.
    2. Yep.
    3. Depends, do you just mean a really long melee weapon? If you're looking for a bow, use an Occult Composite Bow with Moonlight Arrows. Overall though, that Halberd is fine as it is. Should work out great. The only other weapon I can think of would be a Pike.
    4. Have you tried the armor optimizer on the left side of the page? 

    Best possible physical defence with fast roll:

    Best possible poise with fast roll:
    http://mmdks.com/2r9s

    Personally, I'd use the one with the better defence. 31 poise isn't gonna do a whole lot, but it's better than none. And even then, the defence given from it isn't all that wonderful. You're better off either going full defence or using the Wolf Ring.
    Here's my own version of the build: 
    http://mmdks.com/2r9u
    If you're using a Club, your build should have some poise. Otherwise, you're just gonna get poked at and stunned.

    Thank you!

    The bow can be an interesting alternative. Also the Pike, that I don't see so much in PvP...

    I have found the Pike to be an amazing weapon in PvP, not only is it stupidly long, but when chasing down those who try to run, the running R1 is deadly when you get behind them, or even close behind them.

    Darkmoon talisman is pretty weak at only 30 faith.  The canvas talisman will be the strongest.

    Definitely gotta have the poise. Any strength weapons your using are gonna swing too slow and you'll just get stun locked a lot. Another good weapon to consider as well is man serpent great sword. I've used that on my str/fth and its a pretty nice weapon. Its fast. Oh yeah and you definitely don't need 50 str, I would go with more but since you'll be trading hits a lot but more end like jay posted looks good too as far as having the extra weight to fast roll. Anyways, good luck

    first of all, large club already has awesome reach on its 1hR2 and jumping attack, if you utilise theese moves you won't be longing for a polearm much longer. you'll be needing all your stamina for rolls and attacks, i'd want you to try a offhand weapon that can parry and cancel backstabs, if you feel the need to block switch to twohanding the club. buffing the club isnt really needed but whatever floats your boat i guess.
    http://mmdks.com/2rne with the given concept i'd come out with this...

    Note: Swap to Wolf's Ring after you buff, by putting your weapon buff in the last attunement slot you wont lose anything when switching off the ring, since the buff will be on your weapon already and it only has 1 use. You can Choose between VoS/GMB/Replenish based on your opponent and you have WoG for damage and dead angles.

    Armor is kinda mish mashed, I noticed fire defense was on the low side after getting you 56 poise(with wolf's) So the gloves I chose were picked for their great flame defense, if you'd rather bolster another defensive stat there are other very light options with different values.

    You big meal ticket is Rolling attacks mixed up with rolling DAed WoGs. If they attempt to roll away from a rolling attack it'll be possible sometimes to catch them with WoG as they exit the roll.

    The Occult Composite Bow might be my favorite weapon right now. It does great damage for a bow and  you can always use poison arrows as well. Shoots fast and will be a big help finishing small amount of health left over after you deal the serious damage with a buffed club. (though I'm not sure too many builds could take a WoG Tickstab from this build, the BS damage will be insane)

    I've put in my 2 cents worth. Sacrificed your fast rolling action for some decent weapons; Demons Machette with DMB buff and Occult SSS for when that runs out - its got a great swing set like the claymore. You should have enough poise to take a hit with the swing and the combination of the mask and the FAP ring will boost Vitality which I have stuck on 42. Karmic Justice and the grass crest shield plus Ring of the Suns Firstborn will ensure some good damage while tanking some hits with the machette. Included TWOP if you feel gankers are abound.

    I've had a 50 Str faith build and its not all that great using Leeroys weapon.
