    Anyone addicted to making builds?

    Post by reim0027 on Tue Mar 20, 2012 10:02 pm

    I know I am. I love planning them. I love trying to min/max at 120. I love figuring out the best way to make the build, which levels to do when, etc. I've made so many. Each time I make one, I think: "this's the one, it'll be perfect." Each time, I'm wrong.

    Well my friend...me and you are in the same predicament. I currently have 8 toons with enough souls each to level up to 120 but I'm so affixed on the "perfect" build that I don't even know what to do with them. But as you saw in one of my earlier posts, Iv'e made an incredible Int/faith build using the Moonlight Greatsword which I will be posting tomorrow.

    It is so bad, I'll remake an entire toon if I missed even one point.

    I have a complete mule. That helps satiate my extreme need to make another build.

    I love making new builds, but for much less efficient reasons lol. I don't usually try to min/max for overall effectiveness, but I start with a theme in mind, whether that be NPC mimic builds or sticking to a particular weapon for an entire playthrough, and seeing how effective I can make that theme. As of this post, I'm currently piecing together Havel, Ornstein, and Gwyn mimic builds, as well as a caster who simultaneously weilds Velka's Talisman and the Tin Darkmoon Catalyst happy

    Would an Ornstein build be better off being a DEX/FTH buffing build? Of course, but the point of my builds are more to test how effect CAN an Ornstein build end up becoming. There's just something fun in testing out underrated things, and I can take pride in knowing that I'm one of the few people I've ever seen to say "screw stats, I'll one-hand Smough's Hammer just to see what it's R2 is!" (it's pretty disappointing btw sad)

    No it isn't. PW - Chest head/Silver Serp ring/Firestorm or wog - blast Phalanx's over and over. It's pretty boring but fast. I can normally level a character to 120 in about 6 or 7 hours play.

    Yeah - each run takes about 30 secs and you get approx 10K in souls. So over a 1 million per hour. Total soul cost is aound 3.5 million to 120 so only 3.5 -4 hours of doing this can get you there. Personally I get bored so I just kick back and do 1 hour a time. The rest of time is spent getting the stuff you need unless you BB it.

    Time it - I bet each run takes you longer than 30secs bofire to bonfire- the Hunters never cooperate every time, causing delays. Just doing a few runs, it won't make much difference but for the long haul. it all adds up. Try PW method and you'll see.

    Surely though isn't it contradicting the point of the build if you're gonna use a PvP build to go gank invaders?

    I know it can net souls fairly fast, but there are other ways that are swifter without the controversy of ganking PvP

    Personally I would rather get them through fair means, and not at someone elses expense. But hey, thats just me.
