    Equipment for Str/Faith Mid-Level Build

    Post by TheRAM on Mon Mar 12, 2012 2:15 am

    Hey, so I'm starting a new build (this is my second playthrough) and I want to focus on Strength and Faith, but am unsure what equipment to work towards.

    I looked over the builds on the wiki, and nothing seems to really fit what I'm going for as most of the Str/Faith builds on there require SL > 100 and I want this guy to be solid much earlier.

    I'm definitely looking for a focus of PVP, but with solid PVE capabilities as well ideally.

    Any suggestions on equipment/armor to work towards?

    UPDATE: I don't want to use the Claymore, as that is what I used for my Int build on my last playthrough and I'm looking for a change of pace.

    You can try the Man-serpent greatsword, Demons Great Machette, Demons Greataxe, Large club, Great club. Lots of options, they all scale very good with STR and can be buffed with your faith spells for max damage.

    Cool thanks. I'm still trying to decide whether I want to pump Strength and go that route, or maybe Pump Faith and use an Occult weapon of some sort, but am undecided. I may go the Strength route just to vary it up.

    If I went with strength primarily, what's the best upgrade path for these weapons? Is it just to neutrally upgrade them to +10 and then use spells to buff them?

    Thanks again!

    I can't really say, I imagine using the regular path and buffing with SLB or DMB would give you better damage per hit, but taking it along occult or divine will also give it permanent magic damage, which not many people are perpared for. Honestly you should try the different kinds and find which one works best.
