    What form of ranged attacks do you use in duels?

    Post by JY4answer on Fri Jan 27, 2012 5:55 am

    As title. Please explain your choice and share as well.

    I'm currently using a ninja character, using poison arrows and poison throwing knives. I always start with the arrows and switch to my melee weapons if they get too close, and throw the knives when I see a chance. The point isn't the damage it causes, but the pressure it gives the opponent. Its also a nice way to utilise the little bit of time where we stand apart and regen stamina, or to punish a cast or estus chug. Also very easy to obtain in large quantities. Can't get myself to use either when I'm in knight armor though.

    i use my bow on my dex char. +15 pharis. its always equipped anyways since its light weight. invaders run at me and are surprised to see almost 200dmg be taken off right off the bat. havent been posioning ppl as I'm not of fan of it but considering how often i get those annoying things thrown at me i might have to start.

    Where's magic? I use magic a lot, but like to use dung as well. It's funny to get someone toxic. I actually killed someone because of it a couple times. Got them in a toxic status and widdled their health down and waited for toxic to finish them. Good times.

    Ok i will explain abit more why ranged dont work for me in pvp, i dont use auto aim much and they are kinda worthless trying to free aim with in pvp. I use WoG, HCSM, dragon breath as the only ranged attacks as they work better without auto aim.(please note i only have 2 toons that use magic, the rest never use ranged in pvp)

    i have to much fun invading Klin on my low level. and the only thing that would be different with a lvl 120 is i would use a +15 washing pole with sunlight/dark moon buff instead of a chaos one just to get extra levels.

    Just had the awesome experience of a ranged fight with this guy, I used more than a 100 poison arrows and 60 dung pies, he used quite some fire, poison and dragonslayer arrows as well. For a few times I had him with both poisin and toxin status, eating up quite some health. We both healed, and I didn't mind since we were just messing around. Ended up dying cuz I ran out of casts, but had a damn great time. (Copying this to another related post)

    None. If i use ranged attacks, they're magic.

    Never bothered with bows/crossbows, i just dont like them in games generally.

    The other items i just prefer to have a fight than throw **** or little exploding bombs at people

    Indeed, poison/toxin/both is a great way to punish estus chugs. With both on, you do 11dmg per 'hit'. Quite scary to be honest. Managed to pull that off a few times.
