    I'm back!!

    Post by BoilerFan8472 on Sun May 06, 2012 11:19 pm

    Soooo after taking about a 3-4 month break from dark souls, I've started playing again(sunbroing of course:) ) and plan to be active on the forums again.

    So my question is what happened to the heavy armor builds? Before I left they were all over the place. Now in my about 30 multiplayer since then, I've seen one heavy armor build and that's my character.

    I seem to remember seeing your name in the old forums, welcome back happy.

    How do you mean by heavy armor builds? There are still quite a few heavy armor users, but they all use havels or giants and the flip ring (generalization of course, not all heavy armor users do this)

    I mean tankers. I can take huge amounts of damage with my build and dish it out with equal force. I haven't seen any of those. The people flipping from my experience can't match my 600+ damage a hit with stunlock for a combo chain approaching 2000 damage.

    There has been a noticeable shift towards mobility and going for criticals in the past few months.

    As soon as I get my DkS back from my cousin, I'll be playing it yet again as well. I took quite a long break from DkS as well, but good to hear that you came back to it happy
    As for me, I enjoyed having speed over anything else. I have fought a few tough tanks back then. One of my friends has been keeping me updated with DkS though and he said that many people pvping nowadays go for the parry or Claymore.

    Idk what happened to them, because I haven't been apart of the community until recently. Heck, when I first bought the game at release, I played for about a month, and only offline. But I always loved tanking. That's just how I play RPG's. I can do glass cannon and all those other builds, but tanking is where my heart lies. After going through a few other builds, getting good at the game this past month, I've made my ultimate tank. I plan on joining Fight Club when I get 120 XD

    I've never done a heavy armor build in DkS share yours to inspire me please!

    But as others have said the trend right now is to just put the DWGR on everything and ninja flip everywhere. It's obnoxious and I hate it.

    Welcome back!

    My Tank build has a way better name than any of yours. He looks like, and is, Al Bundy. This build is perfect for playing Football twenty years ago.
