    What's up with all the dexterity builds lately?

    Post by martyrsbrigade99 on Sat Jun 09, 2012 9:23 am

    I've been doing a lot of PvP lately and have noticed a LOT of dexterity builds. Because of that, I figured I would just send a reminder to everyone that the strength build is STILL a force to be reckoned with:

    It seems builds go through Fads. I remember the dual Kat and MH fad in DeS . . . that fad never really ended, I wonder why. :roll:

    Dex offers more versatility.

    Hmm, not sure I would call elemental greatswords a str build since they have dex options and the Str req's are moderately low. still a nice PvP vid man.

    You can use spells with dex much more effectively than a str build.

    I don't think that a level 75 can truly be a complete strength build. That's why the elementals were there. Once the build is complete it will be a true strength. Thanks for the information.

    DEX offers a lot of flexibility in the way of spell cast times and weapon selection. Strength builds are more or less "smash 'em up" weapons, while DEX has kats, rapiers, spears, bows, curved swords, etc. That's why I love DEX builds, anyway. However, I also love my Demon Great Machete build.

    Love your vids.

    Dex builds to me, are also much easier to use than STR builds. I know there's guys like Rant and Baal who are lethal with them, but a lot of people just don't have the timing to use them without just going for OP BS.

    That with the cast times, access to bows too, the fact buffs are better with fast weapons... It's all stacked up against strength builds really which is a shame.

    That's exactly why attacked my new montage to demonstrate that strength builds can be just as lethal as a dex build.

    Most of my builds are either dex or or use dex weapons as elementals. But when i fight with my str build almost everyone thinks i am a noob. Everyone expects me to BS fish or just spam r1.

    Personally, I started the game the first time with a str build.. well sort of one at least, and played through it about 3 times on that character. Since then I have used a magic/str build and I'm just making my first dex build now, not so much hopping on the bandwagon as just wanting to try something different.

    That, and all the weapons I found myself going 'Oh how cool, I want to try that!" were all dex scaling. There seems to be ALOT of the same weapon over and over again in the str build arsenal, and I just got tired of using those weapons. Someone already said it, but I think it has a lot to do with what weapons suit which stat more, people like kats, rapiers and what not. more than axes, greatswords etc.

    Nice vid, btw!

    I got good at pvp with a str build. I love my msgs. I also think it catches alot of people off guard because they don't know how to handle a str build that does not ise the bkga. I'm making a dex build atm, but I still miss my destroy your face str build. happy

    my favorite types of build are dex/pyro. there really are just a lot of benefits to using dex. i do like to use weapons like the murakumo or flamberge with my dex builds, so i at least can have variety and not use only katanas.

    Its not really just lately........,,,,, I se the bkga everywhere, but the dgm, clubs, dga, greatsxe, even the msgs I've seen less than 5 times each outside of FC.


    Btw sl 75 str build.

    http://tinyurl.com/7jelgbm

    Its lower damage than is preferable in 1 hand but the r2 and parrying ability make up for it. In both hands you'll do a good 4-600 damage a hit.
