    Suggestions for a PvP build?

    Post by Sacrilegious on Mon Jun 18, 2012 2:20 am

    Newb to pvp here, but I'm trying to figure out what a good SL80 pvp build would look like. Would someone mind giving me pointers/tips regarding this?
    I would like to be sort of a End/Dex build, light and fast moving.

    For weapons I'd like to use:
    Chaos Blade
    Shotel (maybe)
    Lifehunt Scythe
    Marukamo?
    (I don't plan on doing a whole lot of pyromancy/sorcery/miracles

    Armour -
    Darkwraith
    Shadow (Not sure how good this is for pvp)
    Maidens

    Shield -
    Bloodshield (If I use Lifehunt, if not then I think I'll do no shield.)

    Rings -
    Bloodbite ring (If I use Lifehunt)
    Darkwood Grain
    FOG
    Hornet (Don't want to be cheap, but maybe.)
    Favor?
    Havel's

    Leave some advice, please. I'm a little lost here, as I'm fairly new to PvP

    Use this to plan your build. Once ready post it and we'll do tweaks and such.

    Okay so here's one with Lifehunt used.

    http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=4297975672090720

    Possible Changes I can think of:
    - Bloodbite ring really really helps for Lifehunt
    - 19 Str for Murakumo
    - Switch some rings to what you prefer
    - Take of DWGR and switch to light armour like Maidens/Shadow

    Oh and I chucked pyromancy on as it weighs nothing requires no stats and you have 2 attunement slots

    A nice Firestorm or two is never a bad thing silly

    Here it is.
    Note, I will not be using bloodshield+Lifehunt and Chaos+parrying at the same time, so that will cut weight to below 25%

    Well you should stop Dex at 40 max, and your Vit is a little low for my preference...

    Oh and what's the reason for 25 Str?

    I just thought of adding strength for the sake of adding it. I'll take it off, and convert the points to vit.

    EDIT: Revised version. Tweaked equipment and stats. (Also updated on in original post to this link)

    You need at least 16 Str for the Chaos Blade. I would take Str up to 24 so you have the option of using the heaviest Dex weapons, never know when you'll wanna shake things up.

    Yeah the majority are all 16, what's 24 for?

    Well i was mistaken, he would need 28 for the heaviest Dex weapon, Murakumo. But 24 is so he can wield washing pole, 20 Str, and Server, 24 Str.

    Yea I could think of Murakumo, but generally for Dex builds I just use it 2H especially for a SL80 and that's like 19 Str or something.

    Washing Pole... well I don't use it anymore lol, kinda got sick of it being soo overused. Also it's not too much of a Dex weapon really and you want a Buff to make it Uber and he's not using magic. Although it's still decent so up to him if he wants to use or not.

    Server... I have never used since I first picked it up silly

    But... 20 Str for DragonSlayer. Bow HELL YES!!! twisted

    Well okay, since I feel obliged to post about the topic at hand.
    If you are not planning on using casting of any kind then this may suit
    (also your link had too low str to use chaos blade)
    http://tinyurl.com/7vz67bu
    if you plan on parrying you need the strength to one hand (unless you can pull off that weird 2h switch stuff)
    Ring of fog is of limited use as an invader since you glow. (assuming your invading since your in the lifehunters)
    wolf ring gives you enough poise to take a hit from just about anything. rather than being stunlocked to death by greatswords (I put in 14 hours on a build in full dark armor, it gets annoying. )

    I suspect there will be some room for improvement once you have had some experience, but really you dont know what your style is till you try! big grin

    Yeah. I had another build focused on using red tearstone and avelyn, and I got about 10 kills using cracked orbs. That's about all my experience for pvp.
