    Need some build help for a melee focused class

    Post by dirkdeadeye on Thu Apr 05, 2012 4:29 pm

    I was sort of going off of a polearm build, but I decided that that wasin't the way I wanted to go..my present stats are

    SL: 46
    Vit: 17
    Att: 10
    End: 29
    Str: 16
    Dex: 22
    Res: 11
    int:9
    Faith:14

    I was wondering if it was still viable to change it up to a black knight, greatsword sort of build. I wanna carry a big sword, give the impression that i'm slow and fat..but with my dark wood ring, and possibly havel's ring I out maneuver and womp them a few times.

    I'd rather stay away from miracles and sorcery, pyro I did pump a little into faith, but that's for replenishment. I think I need a few more.

    My concern is, I think I put a little too much into dex..But, maybe you guys could suggest a viable way to incorporate that into a SL80 or 120 build.

    is this gonna be for pve or pve? pve doesnt really matter much but for pvp you could go with a 40 vit, end, str, dex. it will hit hard and you dont need any magic really, maybe pyromancy.

    pvp, yeah, pve doesn't really make a difference it seems.

    what about something like that? you can use slb/dmb(i prefer slb) and wog which wont do much damage but it would be manl to keep people from bs'ing you, you should have an elemental back up once your buff runs out.

    yay another str user besides me and baal. just go for it and if youre not happy with it you can always maximise it. make sure you check out the manserpent gs, demon great machete and the large and great club. my paladin build looks like this.

    edit; just so you know you wont be able to use slb with 28 faith, you need 30.

    I could keep attunement @ 10 I'd just only have one slot for spells. I'd use wog or replenish.

    I have a black knight greatsword, and I kinda wanna sport the armor too, I don't know the viablity in pvp with that sort of equipment. looking through the wiki I can't disecrn if it scales from strength, they don't explain the letters in the key.

    it scales with a b(3rd strongest possible scaling) in str and an e(sucky) in dex.

    with what you are going for you could only get enought points to use replenishment and use the bk weapons, i know peopl hate them but with your stats theyre perfect. but make sure you try out all the weapons, the bk gs only has a C on str, try the msgs like a said before it has the same speed and it has an A in str and has a good set of moves, imo its the best greatsword in the game.

    Oh, I see it's a letter grading for scaling.. that makes sense now.
