    what to do with my str /faith build

    Post by darksoulslover on Thu May 10, 2012 9:32 am

    Current stats
    vit 38
    att 16
    end 38
    str 40
    dex 13
    int 10
    faith 30

    1 Im in forest cov. So ill play around with that for a bit or do dark wrath and get the talisman.
    2 Is 50 faith worth it dmg wise?
    3 is 40 str enough?
    4 whats enough vit and end?
    5. I have 4 slots is that enough?

    I have pyromancy too. maxed
    This char is pve/pvp.

    I currently use a claymore plus 5 lighting. Kicks butt so far. was thinking of putting points in int for some more dmg spells. What do you think?

    i was at chappel near the forest and now there is red knights. Pretty tuff. Now there gone. I dont get it?
    also near the crest door in forest there is a bonfire. Was that always there? I never kindeled it before.
    also at sens there is red snakes. Stupid hard

    if you dont care about your sl then you can do whatever you want, are you gonna cap at sl 120? why are you using a lightning claymore when you have 40 str? its a waste of points if all youre using is an elemetal weapon since it doesnt scale with anything. 40 is always a good number for vit, end and str

    Switch to a +15 ultra/greatsword, 40 str is enough. you;re just before diminishing returns. 30 fth is enough unless you use a divine weapon or sunlight spear. Go to 40 vit and end.

    the red phantom things were gravelord phantoms. it means your world was infected by a gravelord. At some point you would have got a "Disasters are gone" message and they would have disappeared after that.

    since youre in sen's farm the first two guys untill you get a manserpent greatsword and make it +15 it is the best gs in the game imo(specially when buffed).

    get the reg serpent gs to +15 it has really good scaling with str(an A) claymore only has a C. keep using the lightning claymore untill you upgrade you sepent gs though.

    Hate to say it, but study the weapons and what scales with what. Because one of my builds is a faith/strength/ int/ dex Sun bro. I'm going with a divine uchigatana (scales with faith, strength & sex, I think) & not sure what massive 2-handed axe / sword I'll be wielding raw using those fire, lighting, poison resin buffs.


    And those red thingies, kill them or find the sign of the grave lord whom you can invade and kill (maybe). Never actually seen a sign but have seen the infected creatures and the disasters are gone.... Text .

    slunlightblade you get in in anor londo in the darkmoon covenant, you have to kill the leader of the covenant which also gives you darkmoon blade which is a magic based buff but you can only use it if youre in the covenant. keep the boss souls if you wanna get the knight trophy, the dragonslayer bow is good and fun to use too so just go with that.

    not enought to make a big difference, with faith either go with 30 or 50, its worth taking your faith to 35 or 40.

    i was looking up wep and may be you can clear something up for me. Say for a wep it says lighting dmg is more or a higher number than a +15 wep. If i have 40 str. How much does taht add to dmg. If i was doing 200 per hit with lighting. what would i be doing with 40 str and no lighting?

    the whole elemental thing is tricky, they have to go through two defences so theyre weaker on higher level like sl 120, +15 only goes through one defence so the damage doesnt get reduced as much al elementals. hopefully that helps you.

    Another Aussie!

    I agree with Rant, get +15 MSGS. At 40 str you'll have 275+250ish AR which gives over 400 damage per hit. Then go kill gwyndolin for sunlight blade and your weapon will destroy everything.

    1 or 2 handed. Two handing a weapon at 40 str doesnt add that much damage. You might get 30-50 dmg extra 2 handing it.
