    Gwyn's Firstborn Build

    Post by WyrmHero on Fri Mar 23, 2012 4:39 am

    After doing a Priscilla build, this is my next plan. The famous, nameless and forgotten God of War!!!!!!



    Starting class Cleric, SL 120

    Covenant: Sunbros (to jolly coop)


    Vit 30

    End 30

    Att 16

    Str 17

    Dex 40

    Faith 50

    Int base

    Res base



    Weapons: Dragonslayer Spear (broken Sunlight Altar statue) Sunlight Straight Sword, Sunlight Shield, Sunlight Talisman



    Armor: Sunlight Maggot (so grossly incandescent!), Robes, Bracelets and Anklets of the Great Lord (as the broken Sunlight Altar statue), Ring of the Sun's Firstborn, DWGR or FAP or Leo Ring.



    Miracles: Sunlight Blade, Sunlight Spear, WoG or Great Lightning Spear.



    mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=156663789







    Praise the Sun!!!!



    Edit:

    Alternative 1: Put 40 on faith and the rest on strength for maximum Dragonslayer Spear Damage. Substitute Sunlight Spear with Great Lightning Spear and Bountiful Sunlight (you must be on Gwynevere's Covenant for this)



    Alternative 2: Hardcore God of War. Let Att stay at base, put 30 Faith and the rest on Strength. Sunlight Blade only.

    Full incandescence would suggest ring of the sun princess as well but I'm not sure exactly how well that would pan out for you.

    WELL!

    this looks almost exactly like my Dex/faith sun build, but with 3 less str and 3 more att silly

    It's great with balder side sword, but sunlight straight with SLB will be very good, comboing with that thing is very good in PvP.

    I'm liking it big grin why 17 str though? just to try get more power with your sword?

    Yeah only one point is spare and it can be assigned to Vit, End or Strength. I wanted him to be more stronger (40 STR) but it'll be too weak for PvP SL 120.

    I reckon he'll be good enough for 120 PvP, it's by no means a min/maxing build, but it's a bit different, and I think it will be worth the slightly reduced practicality for the fun of it big grin

    Make sure you bring it to FC some time, we can face off Sun wielder vs. Sun wielder big grin

    Damn I need an opinion here. Do you guys think the God of War would wield Sunlight Spear or Great Lightning Spear?

    He's no Gwyn so no. He was exiled and stripped of his godly powers. I don't think Gwyn would allow him to learn his most powerful miracle.

    @Viral I'm trying to make him when he was in all his glory as a God. I think he wielded at least Great Lightning Spear... Although the description said he only had respect for arms....

    I went with Sunlight Blade only, though I feel that he would also use the Greater Lightning Spear. Sunlight Spear is something specific to Gwyn himself, but the Lightning Spears are versions of it meant to be used by the God of War and his covenant members.

    As for stats, I would recommend taking Faith down to 40 since you won't need 50 for Sunlight Spear, and cut into your Dex a bit on top of the 10 points from Faith to make Dex and Str even at 33 each. This will not only allow you to one-hand the spear, but boost the AR of both the spear and the Sunlight Sword a bit.

    And whether it would hurt your roleplay feel or not, strategically it makes sense to replace the Ring of the Firstborn with a Wolf Ring so your 0 poise wearing butt won't be instagibbed by being stunlocked by a katana :|

    You're off to a great start, but I thought I'd share what I had in mind (also, here's an example of what I was thinking of: http://tinyurl.com/7wlprrv)

    its true crystal weapons cant be repaired but if your gona buff something its more damage to be crystal. Just pick weapons that either you dont care about or can be bought from npcs. i crystals all my "get once per game" weapons since i dont use most of them anyway. Might as well crystalize them and buff

    Yeah crystal weapons have better AR. I didnt crystallize the sunlight sword because once it is broken, I dont want to kill Solaire for another one. It gives 707 AR with Sunlight Blade.
