    Help with Balder side sword!

    Post by Razielthemanslayer on Thu Jun 07, 2012 4:13 am

    So I was making a Darkmoon Paladin build. and I had 50 on vitality and 12 on DEX, the balder side sword needs 14 so I thought I cut some vit to pump up dex, just 14, is the balder side sword +15 good enough with just 14 Dex in pvp? or should I go through a lightning or fire path? anyways, I don't think I misused the 2 points :3 They say it's a beast sword.

    With base dex there is no way +15 would be better. Its woulod also be better to use mugen to check. +15 gives you 243 AR while fire gives 448 AR.

    Just checked it scales A with dex o.o. Anyways, One wouldn't say it was um.... well it was a pretty rushed decision but fire path seems to be great anyways.


    The build would be like this


    Vit: 48
    Att: 16
    End: 39
    Str: 16
    Dex: 14
    Res: -
    Int: -
    Fai: 50

    It's not bad right? :oops:

    Actually you may be better off +15. What cov are you? If your in the DMs ahve a spare +15 BSS to use DMB on. It should deal more damage.

    If you have constantly 10 humanity (atleast) then I would go for Chaos-Balder sidesword, if not go for lighting. And putting 2sl wont do much difference I think. what's you'r sl?

    ^Actually chaos only adds like 6 AR. Its not really worth making sure you always have 10 humanity,

    but the damage split of chaos favors fire damage, and fire defense is generally lower than physical, so chaos outdamages fire by more than you would think.

    @Op, keep a +15 weapon on you for dmb, and switch to an elemental or occult weapon after the buff wears off.

    Yes, with your faith you should have DMB/SLB in the mix. I use a chaos BSS +5 with a +15 as backup when I have time to buff it and want to make people play more defensively. But it is a glorious weapon in any form.
