    Viable Build: Tank in Mage Robes

    Post by Majikero07 on Wed May 02, 2012 10:05 pm

    I've played around with the character planner for my pyro. I'll go for this.

    I'm surprised how well the Havel's gloves and boots go well with the gold-hemmed set. What do you think? I'm still a long ways off to that end though so I can't test how well it will do.

    The Great Lord Robe will cover your feet and hands more, thusforth it'll be harder to tell you're wearing Havels stuff. The Big Hat offers insane magic defense, so you'll be covered from all angles of attack far better. You will have less poison resistance.
    This is just my opinion though.

    I was hoping being a phantom and the other guy seeing only my hat and shirt. Maybe the witch set would do it? I need something lighter for the bigger weapons.

    There's a stamina penalty? I've been using Havel's gloves and boots for a while now and didn't notice anything.

    it regens slower for some heavy armor sets.

    lol im trying to stay under 25% to fast roll so egghead means less armor and it looks cool, black cleric and reg cleric look awesome with it too. i wanted to do something fun and not really care about winning or losing, not that i care anyway.

    I tried hollow thief set with egg...

    I would recommend Armour that does not have such colour schemes. A light to normal colored set would be better for your egg. As well, it would also look better with your Gravelord, as your infection smoke that auras a Gravelord is black. A light colored or normal colored Armour would look good with the smoke. Of course hollow thief Armour looks good with it... Although it looks off without the hood, let alone an egg overbloating the tight Armour you wear.

    The cleric Armour, the cloth one, is what I primarily wear when playing with my character. Of course, I also wear the Catarina Armour at times too, although not as much as cloth. I love fast roll, and is a challenge to fight enemies with somewhat naked flesh... Cleric Armour is not the greatest Armour to wear. However, it is better than nothin'

    i actually like the tight light armors with the egg but the one that make you look chunky do look good too, specially the reg cleric robes(which i think look perfect with it but i wanted to try more armors like the hollow thief but i do love the black cleric one, its the one i use the most) med armors dont really look good wtih the egghead, maybe the cleric armor, anyway enough hijacking, im done now.

    To be fair, its talking about Builds in PvP and possibly PvE.

    It does fit, the cleric Armour. It is easily removable, and seems to be of a pilgrim-like devotion... You should see how many egg germicides people give me. I got about 20 from people now.

    You don't need 96 poise!

    If you keep everything else the same, just swap out Havel's Leggings for the Dark Leggings, you'll save a ton of weight and be at 77 poise, which is plenty.

    With the weight saved, you can reduce your End a lot. I got it down to 21, here: http://tinyurl.com/85lzzs4 . You can raise it a little if you want to give yourself some wiggle room for equipment weight (I don't think it'd be necessary, though... You could remove the shield and parrying dagger and save a lot of weight there, so you already have wiggle room). Or you can spend some of your freed levels in Vit and Att.

    Why the parrying dagger in the right hand? I would understand if you had a Sunlight Blade thrown in or something, but I don't think Pine Resin would really be worth it.

    It's in the right hand because I messed up. It's suppose to be used to parry with. I like the silver shield for its 80 fire/lightning defense and nice stability.

    I don't know where to get the dark leggings. It it's from the dark wraith covenant, I won't be getting it this playthrough.

    It works! Sort of. The witches robe is perfect. It doesn't really hide the gloves but it covers the legs completely. It at SL 88 now. The forest isn't too bad today for some reason. Only two pairs of gankers I can easily recognize. The others are mostly random summon pairs.

    A balder side sword+14 with 45 Dex is awesome. I just lack the stamina to capitalize the guard breaks.

    The amount of souls I get range from 3k-7k. It's pretty low. I assume I only manage to kill people with lower levels than me, kinda disheartening.

    This build is mostly deception. It only works if my enemy isn't the "Hulk smash" kinda person. My notable kills right now is terrorizing someone with fireballs before his summon arrives, he rolled off the cliff.

    PS. The silver knight shield only has good fire but average lightning defense. It was the crystal shield that has 80 for fire and lightning. The silver knight shield does have 70+ stability at full upgrade. I'm surprised at how much hits it can take to break my guard.
