    Help with my character

    Post by S_Hawk on Mon Jan 30, 2012 8:42 pm

    Hello, i'm new to this community and i could some help.

    Well, i created my character with PvE in mind but in NG+ i started to get invaded (i practically played my first game in hollow state) and i found the PvP really fun, so, i want to make a new character for PvP (sl120).

    My actual character is sl 122 pyromancer with 30vit, 40 end, 19 att, 24 str, 40 dex, base int and res and 30 faith. I'm using a partizan +15, an eagle shield +15, a child mask, a paladin armor +5, the havel's gaunlets and the xanthous waistcloth +5. I use in my magic slots 2 great combustions, 2 light swords and a lightning spear.

    So what do you think i should change for my new character, the weapon? magic? armor? stats?

    let everyone know what you like, from what you wrote it seems like you might like katanas and straight swords, if you do you should try the laito and balder side sword, they kick *** specially if you bring your faith up to 30 and use sunlight blade on them. its really up to you, ttry all the weapons and see whayt you like, a dex/fai build would suit you from what i see, never go past 16 str and thats only if you want the eagle shield, stick with dex and faith.

    30 Vitality is really low. At 122 PvP, you'll die fast. Get it up to at least 40 and consider wearing a Mask of Mother and RoFaP (at 40 Vitality).

    40 End is good

    19 attenuation? That seems high. Lightning spear is worthless in PvP. 2 buffs is nice, but don't expect to rebuff in a fight (it takes a long time and you'll get backstabbed). 2 Great Combustions are probably unnecessary. Change it up with a Fire Surge or Chaos Fireball (aim unlocked). You'll be less predictable. You can save a few points here.

    24 strength = depends on your weapon, but with 40 dex, it seems really high, since most dex-scaling weapons don't scale well with strength. You can save a few points here too.

    Your stats are spread really thin. For good PvP, you need to min/max. Pick a couple weapons/techniques you want, and maximize those weapon's strengths. This will lead to sacrifices, but your build will be stronger.

    For PvP, there are better shields than the Eagle. There is a thread here about the best shields, somewhere.

    So, decide on how you want to fight first.

    The 24 of str were for the dragonslayer spear (bad choice). Thanks for the advices, i'm going to take them in account, btw, whats your opinion about the armor i'm wearing

    Ditch the MoChild. Get a Grass Shield instead. Paladin's armor is great for areas where you may be cursed, but, in PvP, it isn't really worthwhile. Giant's is one of the beast in terms of defense, poise, and weight. Havel's gloves are great to add some poise.
