    does my character have any hope?

    Post by JohnIII on Fri Jun 29, 2012 10:48 pm

    My character is 109. Looking at the stats, do you think I have any hope of making him a good pvp character? If so how? The velka's rapier and the blood shield are both fully upgraded

    Damn, your vit is very low. You could have a Str main weapon such as the Great Club, and buff it with Crystal Magic Weapon. Use your Velka as back up. The rest of the points in Vit and 2 more in Att for an additional slot.

    Offensively, it is good. I question the survivability of it, however.

    If I were you, I'd add one more point to DEX (to be able to wield Velka's), and the rest to Vitality, which sucks seeing as you are only 2 levels away from 44 INT and the CSS (the most powerful sorcery in the game). I'd also probably advise you to drop the BDCR (I know, it hurts) and replace it with the RoFaP.

    What's BDCR and what's RoFap?

    The BDCR is the Bellowing Dragoncrest Ring, it is your sorcery-boosting ring.

    The RoFaP is the Ring of Divine Favor and Protection, and it boosts your Vitality, stamina bar, and your equip load. It breaks when removed. It is earned by killing the NPC Lautrec, the dude in the golden armor.

    Oh yeah I have that and I'll put it on. So basicaly, switch my sorcery ring for the ring of favor and protection, level up enough in intel to use crystal soul spear, and spend the rest on vitallity. Seems like great advice. thank you.

    Yeah, you could do that. Don't forget to get your DEX to 16, however, so that you can use your rapier. Also, the Crown of Dusk boosts your magics by 20%, it can somewhat offset the loss of the BDCR.

    However, it also makes you extremely vulnerable to magical attacks. In that way it is pretty much the polar opposite of the Big Hat which boasts a beastly magical defense, but it doesn't offer any attacking bonuses. Your call, just throwing it out there.

    Heres my suggestions. I say go to 125, its your first pvp build so who cares. Just dont go higher then that if you wan steady pvp. Manserpant GS is a good idea and will make use of your str.Buffed with crystal magic weapon you will have great damage output. This set up doesn't have the best defense, but with good dmg output. It would be a good build to practice with, cause you can get kills with it but you would have to learn to dodge and not play sloppy. You may not like the dark hand at first, but it has great overall defense and should be used for blocking pyro or magic attacks(mainly focus on 2handing your GS and blocking with it). This build also gives you 54 poise which is really important, especially starting out. That will allow you to tank a GreatSword hit, but weapons like ultra greatswords will stunlock you. Yea....theres a lot to learn. You could try to manage to put the stats i put in end into vit, but i think this works better, just opinion really.

    EDIT:you could use mask of mother instead of pharis's hat, its actually a good idea. Only thing is the community hates those masks, personally i think it would look kinda cool with the set up i have here.

    Dont bother lvling up int to use crystal soul spear! well i really dont think you should. You should not focus on using your magic attacks unless you really have a clear opportunity. You only have 16 dex and your casting speed is pretty slow, you will get back stabbed if you go crazy with casting. Only use it when you have a good distance between you and your opponent. This is for pvp, correct?

    yeah. Does dexterity effect your casting speed?

    I'm saving the links for all the suggestions on my desktop so that I can make an ultimate decision.

    Also, I'd like to add that a melee set-up of the MSGS and Velka's Rapier should work out wonderfully. You'll cover a lot of different bases with those 2 weapons, they really do complement each other beautifully.
