    Lightning Gargoyle Halberd?

    Post by jjshowal on Thu May 17, 2012 11:37 am

    Okay here is my dream build I'm working on right now. Suggestions appreciated.

    http://tinyurl.com/blr4trv

    Just curious if you all have utilized the Gargoyle Halberd in PvP. It has good damage, range, and I enjoy the scythe-like moveset.


    *I'm aware that if I started off as a bandit, I could have like 3 more levels to play with. But I would rather not start over.

    lower end to 30. i actually used it a while ago and it kinda sucks against shields, specially great shields that thing bounces off thema nd kinda staggers you leaving you open for an attack, its better to use the pgs and take out the GH for range which the pgs lacks.

    edit; make it chaos, its stronger than ightning and lightning is lame.

    Ha! Lightning is lame and didn't notice chaos was stronger. I just needed a high range, high elemental damage weapon in my off hand to make up for the pgs. I also wanted to do something different than a demon's spear.

    Heyyyy Rant, Lightning is not lame!!!! LOL, it's overused by newbies but if I were going to do I a pure vit/end shiny and classy cosplay build (like a god or something you know) I'll choose Lightning weapon as my main weapon.

    Edit: I never have done one, but 1 day I will.

    yeah but lightning weapons are the bkga of elementals, so boring and i hate the sound they make when you connect. i really dont like the lightning resin either, i alwasy go with rotten resin.

    Yeah it's a shame.... I prefer Chaos too, I love Chaos. My Chaos Pyromancer had DGA buffed with fire resin and a Chaos back up weapon. Fire resin looks epic.

    im with you on the lightning sound efx that **** annoys the **** out of me. for this build i suggest using eastern gauntlets or something to make your poise 54. it sucks but 52 poise wont stop a two handed greatsword from staggering you but 53 will.....yea

    Thanks for the suggestions! I tweaked it a little bit! And I always thought it was 51 poise that would prevent some staggering. Here is the updated version. I also brought it down to 120.

    here it is. I think it will look pretty badass as well.

    It's a great weapon for PVP if you use the most of the moveset. I use it mainly as a countering tool, using the range (it's r1's take a step forward) to strike from just outside their swing. If you have the poise you can use the 2h r2 to break their poise in a second and then get a hit or two in, or even a great combustion.

    I haven't had nearly the luck with it in PvP as I thought I would. If you have enough poise the R2 works okay against people fishing for BS since the swing is almost a full circle. I have a fully upgraded lightning gargoyle halberd. It owns in PvE though with 638 total AR. The resistance is nice in PvP but I've found like someone else said if someone has a decent shield up the stun from a hit exposes you too much.

    If you can stunlock someone with the 2H R1 with enough endurance you can end them quickly, but that's not going to happen too often with the weapon.

    For the debate on lightning/chaos, I would just like to point out that lightning resistance is almost universally lower than fire resistance (barring light armor, which is very rarely used, in my experience). Also, the AR boost from Lightning -> Chaos is miniscule compared to the defense jump.

    Doesn't the gargoyle halberd already deal magic damage? It would be smartest to not split the damage anymore. Or am I thinking of the wrong weapon?

    You're thinking the wrong weapon. The Gargoyle Halberd's only special ability is an increase in poison toxin and bleed resist

    You're thinking of the wrong weapon. As to elemental, go with what you like best. I use chaos because I prefer the sound and death animation.

    The gargoyle halberd doesn't deal out any magic damage. it just has d scaling with dex and str. you might be thinking of the demon's spear or something? anyhoot. i have messing around with this thing in PvE and it freaking owns everything for a lower lvl character like me. I am about to upgrade it via the chaos route and can see this being an excellent alternative (and something a little more original) as a long range secondary weapon in PvP.

    i just realized this is kinda old, and i already commented. Anyways if it matters i think you would benefit a lot from dropping faith to 40 and putting the ten points into vit. Then kill Solaire and use his bracelets and leggings it will give you 56 poise, and look bad ***. DMB will still do 483 dmg( :affraid:)
