    A Very Odd PvP Build

    Post by mugenis4real on Thu May 10, 2012 6:07 am

    So I was just messing around on MugenMonkey when I came up with this:

    Brick Wall Pyromancer
    http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=377063639

    Do you think it could be successful in PvP? Why or why not?

    It would be even more useful if you wore + spell dmg gear (head + ring) since this is a very predictable build & the key is doing as much dmg as possible since your attacks are obvious from the start.

    the Avelin could be a Ace up your sleeve if you pull it when the opponent is near death, cast a fireball & while he is bussy dodging it pull the xbox & shoot !

    I would definitely make a different Pyromancer but know you were experimenting happy

    I love how you hit exactlly 50% weight. You should make this as a challenge build. How many GCs can you get off before you die?

    I would like to see a dusk helm for more pyro damage and something in place of the DWGR.

    Do you really need that many GCs? Maybe drop one or two for a mist spell, they don't usually land well but they can help you control the opponents movement.

    You can also cast Fireballs from inside the mist, and I'm pretty sure the baddies can't see the actual cast animation. It's pretty useful.

    I removed some dex points and put it into attunement. You don't really need all that dexterity with that kind of build. Also I added acid surge, great spell to defend yourself with.

    No offense, but I don't consider GC spam PvP... And that's all you have on this build. Can it be successful? Of course, it's Great Combustion. Will it be fun/ honorable/ challenging/ interesting? In my opinion no.

    Is it considered a GC spam if it was my last pyro spell? At the very least, keep one GC. It will save your life.

    you would have to go to ng++ for that many casts fo great combustion. i see many many builds like this. i suggest have more fun with the pyro spells rather then just using the most powerful(its boring). i have noticed people have tons of casts of spells you only get once per playthrough and i wondered how some of these scrubs got 12 casts of wrath. then i found out you can skip the 4lords.... ng+++++ wouldnt even be that hard if you skip the 4lords every time. its a shame theres so many glitches that effect pvp gameplay.

    @BLA1NE
    Yea sorry for not being clear, but me the fun of PvP comes from winning so I tend to ignore what other people consider "fun/ honorable/ challenging/ interesting" and just go with what I think will leave me standing and them dead. I always bow and give them time for grass and buffs though so I'm not like a total scumbag or anything lol. big grin

    @Carphil
    I'm kind of scared to swap out my GC's because I dont actually carry a weapon on this build besides Avelyn, and thats a medium range weapon, so all I really have for close combat are my Great Combustions. Their kind of my sword in a sense. :silent:

    @FruitPunchNinja
    For me being powerful never gets boring lol, but can I can see how it would become boring for some, and yea I'm not gonna lie, Iv'e used the skip 4 Lords trick in the past to finish my builds quickly. No harm in it really. :|

    @Glutebrah
    Hey whats up man! Fun fights last night(or was it the night before?) and dude your parries were godlike, if it wasn't for my stupid amount of Vit you would have had me that first round easy lol I'm still looking to get another crack at you...I might even use this build, tank with massive poise then GC to the face happy
