    My first attempt at a 40/40 Str/Dex Build

    Post by mugenis4real on Tue Jun 19, 2012 5:12 pm

    I know your going to hate the armor but I'm not familiar enough with these weapons to feel safe going in with anything else.

    Did I pick good weapons for my stats? This is my first time trying a build like this bounce

    Weapons are OK, but I would switch armor if I were you :/

    Erm, feels to me like your weapons overlap. I would keep sunlight and ditch the Baxe for something heavy or long ranged. yes the armor is common but its effective *shrugs* I dont use it but I'm not going to suggest he becomes less mechanically effective.

    I use a larger sword as backup.
    But with the weight restrictions, perhaps swap out the axe for a pole to get range. I use the demon spear. Other then that, Once you get familiar with your gear and change armors, You will probably have more room for heavier stuff.

    Eh, it's not terrible but it could also be a lot better, I think. I don't know how well the Battle Axe and the SSS really would complement each other in practice.

    Baxe is just agonisingly slow in my opinion and it barely does more than the sunlight. I would say ditch it.

    Switch out the damn slow Battle Axe for a spectacular Hand Axe and you'll win. But seriously you can have any type of weapon and armor combo with that build. All the C/C weapons will have max effective AR when 1 handed so try them all. Try a Crystal Greatsword for the lulz.

    Bro... I will give you a better looking armor that still gives same poise.

    Better. A spear's range will do much more for you than the Battle Axe ever could.

    On my 40x4 toon, I'm a big fan of all giants without the chest piece. 56 poise (no need for wolf ring IMHO) and it looks pretty badass.

    I pair those pieces with Wanderer Chest +10 right now and, depending on ring, I get:

    - Over 400 pure physical DEF with Steel Protection
    - Over 100 poise with Wolf (if I really feel like parrying greatsword spam instead of poison bow punishing).
    - Huge composite bow +15 range with Hawk.

    Ditch the Mother Mask, IMHO. One more hit (maybe) isn't worth it vs. the poise hit you take for not wearing a "proper" helmet.

    I don't lose many matches this way. Unless I get lagstabbed. :evil:

    You might want to think about working in a Composite Bow +15 in your setup.

    With 40/40 in its scaling categories, it can be really effective in PvP, especially against people with no poise.

    A bow in PvP is awesome period. Poise or otherwise.

    ^ Totally.

    Whipping it out at that "crucial" moment in the fight can often mean victory. It also seems to piss off scrubs quite a bit, making them charge you blindly, which leads to parry victories.
