    Variety Is the key to victory build

    Post by Invading4fun on Mon Apr 09, 2012 4:22 am

    So I made a new build that would have 34 str and 40 dex so that I can 2h allmost all str based weapons exept smoughs hammer lol and use all dex weapons but still use cmw buff on them for added boost! I dont see any point in increasing str ov 34, while 2h the scaling is just minimal from 34- 40 str (str could be lovered to 31 if level is too high)
    The Only downside I see is the higher sl : 132. But it should be able to duel just fine ppl at sl 120 (120-10%=12) 132-12= 120sl
    atm he is sl 76, this is at lv 132:

    I havent put on any equipment exept ring of fap that this build uses (to get hp to 1500)

    What do you think? opinions?

    Try to stay at SL 120 if you can. Maybe lower the Vit or End a bit.

    Hey I got my vit at 36 so 131 is possible silly
    I been thinking: I dont want to lover end cus it is at 40 allredy, I havent toutched int or dex yet. dex to 40 would be best because dex weapons seems to scale 2h all the way to 40 dex. and I dont see a point to 1h a 2h weapon so 34 str is best. at 40 str its like 7 or 9 dmg more 2h style. Now im going to use CMW but sunlight blade is possible too. (at 30 faith slb = 309 LIGHTNING damage and CMW is about 354 MAGIC damage) wich one to choose? oh and TCC weights 2,2 more than canvas talisman.
    and if I keep int at 25 for CMW it deals 100 less dmg, about 250 wich I dont think is enought
    I could do the build without buffs but I like Huge damage big grin sometimes I could also put Power within on for crazy damage untill I die :roll:
    The point of this build would be to combine dex and str build somehow for great variety in weapons. I have allredy a dex build that uses katanas and great scyte but with this build I could use also murakumo and ALL of the dex + all str weapons wich I think would be cool big grin

    why not just keep leveling up? it seems you want an all around build just take your guy to sl 200.

    IMO the whole point of keeping under SL120 is so you are forced to make decisions as to where those points would be best spent. I agree w/ Wyrm, try to work out a build that stays at 120. If you drop Vit to 30 and End to 35 you're there, plus you'll have the ring of FaP to help make up for it.

    Either that or just make a SL200 all around build.

    I have a SL 132 character and I can invade just fine.
    And you can't de-level.

    Yes, but he's looking for SL120 duels, not general invasions.

    OP, if you've already put the points into End I'd use this build for a SL200 build. Get Str & Dex to 40 and you could also pump stats into Fth or Int as well. There's a lot of action in that range.

    There have been a few people creating 40/40 builds and staying at the 120 level. I started with a Bandit and I have 40 vit/end/str/dex and a few points in attunement for 2 pyro. It is a fun build and you get to use the majority of the weapons like you mentioned.

    I did not mean that I will only specify on 120 pvp I just calculated that with lv 131 I could still invade/duel with the majority of players that keep at lv 120 - 130. Well I will see how I end up with this guy, its not like he has any advantage over other builds just little more lv and more choise of weapons.
    I invade usually in many places, kiln, burg, painted world and the forest. And at this lv,120+ isnt almost every invasion a duel? Atleast everyone whom I Invaded that are going trough the level usually bow beore fight.

    But what about sunlight blade and CMW ? Sb loses on damage but I checked the wiki and most armors have higher magic defense.

    slb wins most of the time but it depends on what your opponent is wearing, most people have a lot higher magic res than lightning, one of my builds has 400 mag res and 270 lgithning res.
