    Finally buckling down and doing this.

    Post by ErrJon6661 on Fri Jan 27, 2012 4:03 pm

    This, is my sl 253 Artorias build.

    http://darksouls.itsthatguy.com/?c=Q2xlcmljLDI1Myw1MCwzNCw1MCw0NSw0NSwxMSw1MCw1MA==

    The equipment will be

    R1: Greatsword of Artorias
    R2: Catalyst (unsure of what one exactly)

    L1: Artorias' Greatshield
    L2: Darkmoon Talisman

    Armor: Still slightly undecided. Elite Knight seems like it may fit the best but I may combine various armors together to get the look. If anyone has suggestions I'd love them.


    Rings: Wolf Ring, Ring of FaP.

    Spells: Emit Force, WoG, Great Lightning Spear, Replenisment, Crystal Soul Spearx2, HCSM, Possibly White Dragon Breath.


    Any comments or recommendations on this build?

    This will be my first build using a greatsword as the main weapon, this is my first build to use magic intensively and this is my first build over sl 120.

    I have the miracle from NG, I may try and get sunlight spear after NG+ but I don't know if it'll be worth it. I'd like to stick it out as a darkwraith.

    Dragon breath is well worth it and if your lvling up int that high, tcc = your catalyst.

    Yup
    Tcc + WDB hits like a brick, and you get ten casts, 5 of HCSM and your 2 lots of CSS will give you 4 casts, all of them hitting like a brick. Well worth it.
    I like WDB because it works so well free aiming.

    Sounds worth it haha.

    Any spells I'm not mentioning you recommend? I usually stick to force, heal, emit force and replenishment.

    I like your list, looks like fun.
    I only really use lightning spells in pve, in pvp i mite toss the odd one to keep them on their toes... So i find the small lightning spear good for this.
    Or swap the spear for extra casts of HCSM or WDB.

    You have got me thinking about a high lvl toon now lol.

    i'd suggest lowering STR to 40 because you don't get much scaling beyond 30 and with 40 you can use any weapon two handed

    i'd also recommend lowering dex to 35 becasue as i said you don't get much scaling past 30

    and with those 15 extra points you can bump up endurance to 65 which will allow you do use some good armor without being too slowed down

    enough with my rant
    nice build
    i'd recommend demon catalyst or beatrice's catalyst

    demon because i has good meele damage (its fire too) it was doing 400 each meele with it when i was playing

    beatrice because its pretty much one of the best catalysts and hey if oyu like beatrice you need to get it if you don't well go with logan

    @Scudman- the dex is at 45 because I wanted the improved casting times. I made the str match because well... Why not? hahaha. Its not at 253 for any reason. I have no issue going to 268 to make my end 65. Hell, I might even raise resistance to 30 just cause I can.


    As far as my catalyst goes I really dont know. I like the TCC because of the high magic adjust, but I'd rather not halve my castings. I think I have every catalyst so I'll just figure what has the best magic adjust.

    Also I've been thinking about unofficially designating an awkward area for high level (250+) pvp. If enough people are interested I'll put it together.

    Dex speeding up casting time? now thats new to me i had 40 dex on a toon and i never saw any speed-up on casting time at all if its not that noticeable its not worth it to me :/

    anyway its great to see someone going for high level big grin

    if you have a suggestion for an area go ahead

    Im thinking of various optional area's. There's the Depths, The forest before the Butterfly, parts of the Demon's Ruins, parts of the Burg. I'm thinking about making it somewhere god awful for pvp so that there will be less low level players interfering.

    hmmm not burg that wouldn't work

    Demon ruins maybe

    duke's archives most likely no because there's lvl 120 invading there all the time

    Painted wolrd its pretty much the same thing but with some good bit of work we can make it a high level PVP area
