    Help me please.

    Post by Akatik on Wed Jan 25, 2012 6:45 pm

    I'm currently lvl 72ish (on the second version of a character I started and then abandoned) and I'm nearly through my first play through of the game. But, now that I know more about how the game plays and how to build a character better...

    I'm thinking about abandoning my faith tank build and starting over as a thief and make him into a dex/int build.

    Please, talk me out of this.

    So far the best arguement I have against starting over is that I am so close to finishing the game, I might as well see it through and then start over with a new guy at that point.

    I have 8 different toons now.
    Finish the game and start a new guy, but keep the old guy, repeat afew times and you will have afew different toons for pvping.

    My suggestion is do what your heart tells you.....................sounds gay

    ok lets try this again. Start a new character and play with him for awhile and see if you like what you got going on there, if not, delete and go back to the faith guy.

    Sounds good. I have this problem with RPGs that I don't finish quickly. I play for a while, love my character, and then take a break for whatever reason. When I come back to the game after the break, I eventually want to try another character.

    I still haven't finished Neverwinter Nights 1 because of this fact. Chronic alt syndrome.

    If i was you, id start like 10 new characters and play with them all and see which style best fits you. Like choose a thief, go for dex build, knight, go for strength build, mage, go for magic build, deprived, go for hobo build.

    Lol the broken sword is the wine bottle, dress crappy and use the plank shield and I bet people will drop stuff for u cause they feel so bad, that's the bumming part. See, it's a possible build : )

    I like building my guys on paper/spread sheet before I start them, so at least there is some barrier to entry.

    But, here's a great example of why my tank is pretty badass. He has 110+ poise with the Wolf Ring and Ring of Steel protection. I was farming Darkmoon and I invaded someone in Anor Londo who, with his Sun Bro buddy, was just waiting for me to spawn.

    The host bows to me and starts advancing. He was a dex fighter with the Fury Sword and I had my Gravelord ready. Because he was faster, he was able to get two hits on me first. Due to my high poise, I took the hits in stride and dropped him with one combo from my Gravelord Sword.

    Tanking like a boss.

    My advice would be have fun with the single player with the current character, no sense in abandoning him. Then do a speed run with a PvP build to your liking if you want a dex/int. build.

    If anything, I want to really explore the lore of the game in my next playthrough. That's why I'm thinking of starting with the Thief, so I can have the master key and the Pendant

    Dex/Int is hard to do if you want to PvP and SL120 simply because there just isn't enough points between Vit/End/Att/Dex/Int and some in Str to wield a decent weapon.

    If you plan on going PvE only (or high level PvP) and go above SL120 a Dex/Int build is going to be REALLY powerful.

    Yeah, I don't intend on capping any of my characters. I'm sure I'll be able to find some* pvp at all levels.

    This second guy is going all lore and I want to go through the game again knowing now that I know more of the story.

    Like when I replayed Bioshock after knowing how the story ends, just to see all the stuff I missed.

    I'll follow through with my Cleric tank guy. I eventually want him to go full Artorias - Greatsword and Greatshield.

    I'm sorta excited about my new build idea, but I'm not sure I can deal with having to hit enemies more than a couple times to kill them.

    Dude then finish and link the flame. Your next build as a thief try kill Sif and the 4 kings early and become a darkwraith. Check out the lore on that! I've done it with my SL 15 ... A little boring invading newbies so now she is a sunbro instead happy

    Oh yeah. I'm definitely going that route with this new guy. Just going to finish my first character's story line first.

    Sounds like you are suffering from the "grass is greener" complex. I can only compare based on my own experience so here goes. Started as an int build because that is what I did in Demon's Souls, figured it would be the same and then I figured it would be easier as a Str build (grass is greener). Played the Str build for a while and then figured that a Faith Build would be better. Played the Faith build and figured that a Dex build would be better. You know what, I went back to the int build after the Dex build and kept cycling through the builds. Each one has it's pluses and minuses, hence the specialization, but from playing the Str, Faith, and Dex builds, I learned the strengths and weaknesses of the int build in much more detail, and vice versa. My advice...make a whole bunch of builds!
