    Opinions on vitality builds: Frowned upon?

    Post by Wisp on Mon May 07, 2012 6:47 pm

    Well yeah, since we had the opinions on buffs thread, I thought I'd start one for opinions on VIT builds, as I know it's a gripe of some people.

    I'm asking because I'm trying to make a BSS build with no buff, and trying to compensate for the lack of power...

    Well i'm not sure about that either... the minimum to make up for a loss of 350ish magic damage on a BSS. 99 VIT + FAP + MoM = 2622 hp btw. Slightly overkill i'm sure.

    aye but rifter - he specifically wants to run the BSS as it is a fun and better weapon than the katana's. Katana's are overused and now boring... Except for in DeS - those things never get old! anyway I have no view on Vit Gouging - it still dies generally to a parry R2 Ricards Rapier combo ( with Leo Ring ) :L

    No clue...

    14 if using a "pure" vit build with elemental weapons and 99 vit.

    40 if using +15 and more like 70 vit

    45 if +15 and pyros. probably wont do this as relying on pyro hasn't help me improve.

    I dare someone to complain about the vit stacking in this build!

    The only problem with having your vitality that high is that your health bar stops growing before your Vit does. Makes keeping track of your bar a bit of pain. Or at least it was for me.

    According to the character planner, the max health you get get is 2753. This is with 99 vit, mask of mom, ring of favor, and tiny ring.

    i have around 1800 life just enough to live through a Hornet ring crit from the biggest weapons. plus i use Chaos blade and that drains my life..

    make a build you enjoy and have fun with. fun is more important then being powerful. Mask of mother is ugly and id never wear it.
