    Is this a good Build?

    Post by Razielthemanslayer on Fri May 04, 2012 12:08 am

    Hello there, I'm new to this forum and I registered because of 2 things.

    1. Dark souls Rocks!.
    2. I need help to get a good build.

    Thing is. I didn't really cared much about builds when I was into Demon souls cuz I didn't played online at that time, Now I do, and the first character I made was seriusly getting pummeled all over the world. I figured It was because I never really maxed some stats, and I was an average balanced character (which really sucks cuz the level cap is 120 for optimal online play). So I made another.

    Please, gimme me your constructive criticism, if it's any good tell me, if it sucks tell me. I'm really tired of loosing LOL.

    Here it is. It's A Faith build with a enough strength and dexterity to wield Ornstein's spear.

    Raziel:

    Level:95

    Vit: 16
    Attunement: 19
    End: 22
    Strgth: 24
    Dex: 24
    Res: 12
    Int: 21
    Faith: 40


    I Still have some more levels to spare until I reach 50 in faith. Do you think I should then focus on Endurance alone or balance between Vitality and Endurance?.


    Thanks in advance for your responses!, Cheers!.

    First of all, welcome to the forums!


    Next. I think that you should try to spread out your remaining points between end and vit, but try to put in a bit more in end. In other words, with the remaining 15 levels after you get faith to 50, put 8 into end and 7 into vit. Have fun!

    Welcome to the forums!

    Your build looks much too spread out to me. You should pick a few stats and focus on them. Right now you have some Str, Dex, and Int, and a lot of Fth, which leaves little for End and nothing for Vit.

    - What's the Int for?
    - Do you really need 5 Attunment slots?

    You definitely need a lot more Vit. So I'd drop your Int to base, and reduce your number of slots to only what you need, and I'd pour every last point into Vit.

    As Blaine said, drop your Int to base. If you are conformable with the equipload (which I think you already figured out how to fast roll with 50% or less equipload) then you can leave endurance as it is and pour all remaining points on vitality and faith. Use Green Blossoms to quickly regenerate your low stamina and maybe use ring of favor and protection. My Dragon Slayer Spear, Gwyn's Firstborn build:

    Vit 40
    Att 14
    Str 24
    Dex 40
    End 25
    Fai 40
    Int base
    Res base

    Dragon Slayer Spear AR = 508 two-handed

    Thank you all for your welcoming and your help!. I've been thinking a lot and I think I might go for Vitality. I'm sure getting kicked good even now!. do you really think Vitality would be better ? Every hit I get on my character takes away most of my health. Will having my Health ensure a better match?. It I got more health but less Defense, would it do any good? D:. lol I might have to make another build, but Thanks everyone!!. You've really helped me out :3.

    Having more than 30 Vit means you'll have better chances of surviving a match. Low vitality builds are for expert players. Lots of dodging, parrying and high offensive stats to take out opponents fast without getting hit.

    I wouldn't say even skill can save you sometimes. A higher vit is advisable just for lag even, as well as surviving Lagstabs from BS Fishers. And Welcome to the forums man.

    First time I PvPed was with a PvE build. It had low VIT 'cause you really don't need a lot to play through the game. Long story short, I got pooped on. Frequently. Vit goes a long way in PvP, my man.

    Aye that!

    Thanks to you all I decided on Vitality! I went on a few more levels and now i've finally won some matches!. I'm was so happy I literally ROFFL'D on my room when I was able to defeat Gwyn!.

    But Now I have another Question!.

    My faith is 43 and the stats are not getting so much better with each new level. Should I leave it there and go all the way for vitality or should I pump it up to 150? right now my vitality is at 21 and the NG+ enemies are taking steroids! Bow I would really like Sunlight Spear, or you guys think I should just stick to the gravelord miracles and pyromancy? Fire Tempest FTW!.

    Thank you all for your replies!. You've helped much!.

    RAGE QUIT.

    Haha.

    I'd keep with the vit, 40 is a good mark.

    The Spear is good for PvE, but not really for PvP as it's incredibly easy to dodge.

    welcome to the forums! looks like most your questions were answered. If you do decide to make a build for pvp purposes its best to have at least 40 vit like people said and at least 30end. then try to choose between either faith or int, personally i only go to 30 faith and use the canvas talisman. if you choose int going to 40 is more worth it especially if you use the moonlight greatsword. for str and dex you really have to know what weapons youll be using and if you will be using elemental or normal weapons. if you include faith or int i highly suggest that you do 40 dex and use buffs(darkmoon blade,sunlight blade,crystal magic weapon)

    this game has lots to learn about it, so much i could easily write an essay size post explaining it. look through the forums at other peoples builds and try to get an idea of what works best for you. good luck!
