    Thoughts on sl80 pvp

    Post by Delvanoc on Thu May 17, 2012 1:12 pm

    So, I have been set on pvping at 80. I have come to find that there are a much more diverse group of builds at this level as apposed to 120. At 80 I feel that you have to use your stats wisely and choosing a specific build makes the sacrifices that much more drastic than at 120.

    Is there anybody else that feels this way? Or am I just loving sl80 pvp more than I should? (Lol)

    I have been doing it for about a week straight and i have seen far fewer elemental weapons than anything else. I thought this would be the case as well, but I have been pleasantly surprised. Good duels as well. Bowing, no bs fishers or any of the crap you see at 120.

    It also could be the spot I have picked to pvp in as well. I have enjoyed sitting outside the second bf in dukes. I didnt kill seath because i enjoyed hosting.

    i agree with both of you, but its because pvp varies a lot. Sometimes when i make sl80 builds all i run into is vit/end elemental builds, but sometimes people make glass cannons or that annoying *** dragon body/spear combo im getting pretty tired of seeing. i think w.e lvl you are at it just depends on luck whether you get one of the clone builds or someone being a little more out of the box with their build.

    SL 80 builds are elemental, low scaling weapons or pure stat builds.

    I've always wanted a SL80 fight club. I play an SL120 now and then, but I enjoy my 70 and 80 much more.

    I agree that players need to chose their stats more deliberately in a lower level bracket. I've seen a wide variety of builds in that level range, and always prefer to pvp in it.

    Yeah, I am a little uncertain as to why people assume that everybody goes pure end/vitality and take their weapons down an elemental tree. I have found very few that have and the builds are almost always unique and fun to throw down with.
    I get on a hot streak then always come across that one guy that built his toon in the exact build that is the hard counter to mine. Very interesting fights.
    I mainly love it because you don't have spell casting tanks flipping around. They just cant sacrifice the stats to do all of it.
    I would be totally down for a sl80 fc. Would be interesting to see how it goes.

    Whoa didn't see that negative coming lol

    But come on you have to admit its impressive in that it could go toe to toe with an SL120 build fairly easily king

    My sl 83 build

    Access to most DEX weapons, fastest pyro casts & huge VIT.
    Going to-to-toe with any SL on this char.

    Prostration

    And who gave you a negative rep for that comment? I started this thread and I definately did not think any of your statements wrong or offensive. Much less anybody else's statements. People are strange. Here, I'll throw you a positive just to even it out.
