    120+? Yes? No?

    Post by Zakkia on Sun Jan 22, 2012 7:59 pm

    I need advice. I have 3million souls from pvp saved up. I once went past it and it was ok i suppose. But my question is, should i go past 120 again? Has there been much difference? I want to do it with my faith build because hes been kickin ass. I keep weighing the options weather its truly worth it to go to 180+. Thanks guys!

    IMO, it kinda stops being a 'build' since you'll be able to max out 2-3 more stats. Is it a faith build still when you have Fth/Str/Dex/End/Vit... Just my opinion of course, I don't know how the action is because I've only made one Int build, starting my own faith one over the next few days.

    Yep. You can still have a lot of action as host, don't worry about leveling up.

    At NG+ with a sl 200 character I could summon people in places like tomb of giants, demons ruins, dukes.. SO don't worry about summoning, you will just need to have patience of course.

    simple


    the matches would be more fair (i.e since pretty much all builds will be the same according to most capped people here)

    it would be more dependant on skill and as i said on a previous thread 50/50 chance of either you or your opponent winning

    you can turn the tide as so can he

    there is no advantage like you said before you like having the advantage on other build there is none

    you will not be one shoted (at least a lot less)


    ////////////////

    so yeah high level pvp depends more on skill not the starting advantage
    you have to turn the tide of battle into your favor with your skill and not your build

    /////////

    i say go for it

    Well question first: How does the GS do at such later levels? And scudman, how frequent is the pvp lately?

    nope sorry PVP areas are for lvl 120 because some people never bothered tO DECIDE a fricking area for PVP for high levels

    although try kiln,or forest,or dark anor londo but be aware that you will get invaded by more capped people than high level people

    I had one level 130, Lets see If I remember:

    Minimum stats on STR and DEX required to use the sword

    30 INT, 20 Faith.

    Ok now if you want to level up, you need to level up INT or Faith, so the sword scaling will increase. At this sl for me, it was doing the most damage of all my weapons. I preffer to put on INT because I like sorceries over miracles, but depends about you.

    VIT any, same for END. Remember the Greatsword of Artorias is equal the claymore, so if you have a claymore guy, use the same END you want to swing without losing too much stamina.

    I don't want to get into the whole 120 vs no-cap argument, because there are many other threads about it already and no one ever considers the other side's arguments anyways. I just want to say: since we're putting together a Fight Club, it could be in your interest to stay at SL120 to participate.

    But if you're not interested in that, then feel free to experiment and level up. SL120 Kiln PvP is *** now anyways--no one fights fair anymore, and the good fights are rare. So try higher levels, maybe people will behave differently.

    I'd say do it, can't be that much harm in at least trying it.

    I can't find use in 'great' weapons. Even on my 340 I just can not bring myself to use them. the Greatshield though, is good.

    since there is a lot less one shoting on high level pvp and everyone has a chance
    where a heavy armor with 50% movement would have no chance against a mage build on the 120 cap

    on high level cap is more reliant skill,everyone has a chance to win,that is fair if you ask me


    so i'd say there is a lot of fair fights on high level pvp at least most people that i pvped with bowed before the fight and were not trying to backstab me the entire time

    Okay, no specific build is a problem atm. I use great magic barrier, mages can barely scratch me. Nothing like that. i NEVER get 1 shotted. So i would like to know the differences minus that.

    Greatsword of Artorias will keep scaling until you have maxed out your stats. So every level you put in STR, DEX, INT or Faith will add damage to that sword. My favorite big grin

    "no specific build is a problem atm"


    umnmm no its not :|
    even if the build is pretty much the same the people won't be using the same equip,weapons and spells

    so there is variety

    "i NEVER get 1 shotted"

    well you may not be one-shoted but a looot of people at lvl 120 are one shoted
