    Quality build final touch

    Post by Shungi on Sun Jul 01, 2012 10:53 pm

    So the time has finally come for me to make my first quality build, after playing around with the character planner this is what I came up with: http://tinyurl.com/77p5gjf

    It isnt the standard 40/40 but since I tend to 2h most weapons anyway I found the points better spent in Vit. Thought about adding points to Att for a slot or two but then I feel forced to raise dex to 45...

    What do you think, any ideas?

    well.. what would you be okay with changing and whats your playstyle with the build/tactics?

    i'd personally suggest the dwg ring and different weapons.

    Yeah maybe I should have been more specific. Well, my goal with this build is to have many weapons to choose from since I tend to get bored with my builds quite fast.
    The main weapons I had in mind were:

    Bastard
    Great lord gs
    Flamberge
    Murakumo

    ..together with others backup/off-hand weapons for speed and range.

    About the dwgr, sure I can use it, saves alot of End. I just tend use the wolf ring to make sure I can use a somewhat ok gear set-up for when I get in to those kind of duels.

    Do you particularly want your current armor set?

    Have you considered adding Fth or Int? Having a few miracles can really spice things up and make a build more interesting, and a weapon buff like Sunlight Blade on a +15 weapon is sick. Something a bit like this:

    http://tinyurl.com/d9vabxk

    Otherwise if you really want a straight melee build, are you gonna buff that weapon? If not I'd suggest you go chaos with it.

    vs an opponent with heavy defenses it's better to stay +15 over splitting the weapon damage into smaller amounts.

    Not thrilled about them, but I was only half-joking. I just get tired of fighting dudes with 2000 HP.

    If you put your bow at crystal+5 it would do 488 damage instead.

    you could start it at +4 if you're worried about repairing it, too.

    First off, thanks for your help but I'll put this Quality build on ice for a while, not sure where I want to go with this one. Sorry for wasting your precious time happy

    Think I'm going to scrap my current Str build and make a new one. With that said, is there anyone who can tell me how the 1h moveset of the DGH compares to the 2h? Is it worth going to 46 str to be able to 1h this little lollipop?
    Its a weapon I've never used before since I've never liked str builds that much.

    Cripes....

    "Hey how about this?! Ditch that interesting fast rolling build, including the weapons you planned on using. Then put on Mask of The Mother, Giant's armor and the flip ring....Then you will be the most boring build that the game has. Oh, and you'll have the added bonus of being looked at like a total toolbag."

    silly

    ....anyway.....your original build was not terrible, except you had a few wasted points in endurance. You only needed 42 to fast roll. So that buys you 3 points to place elsewhere.

    Keep at it, and stay original. Make the community more interesting.

    :O I didn't steal your sig silly I thought of the quote first 🤡 but seriously, I am a diehard fan of BG - I played all of them with every class doing every quest :L

    lextune: Not really wasted because I had a few different weapon setups that needed more End, but you couldnt know that since I didnt show it happy
    Also I'm not a fan of havel/giant/masks, I have become really bored with the looks of those armors. Might have something to do with me beeing a Forest hunter for quite some time now..

    tehimfamousamos: Actually friend, you did! Compare "Join date" and you will see winking Well you deserve it, me I only played through the games once or twice. Might actually see if I can find the original BG and give it a go again, for old times sake.

    Its a weapon I've never used before since I've never liked str builds that much.

    i gotta say that the GC is the best in terms of power, the best move set goes to the LC and the most awesome of them all is the DGH. imo it is worth going for 46 str since the rolling attacks of the great hammers hit really hard and have sick reach, you also get to 1h the DGA which is another awesome weapon, the only preoblem with the greathammers 2h r1 ground pound is the youre gonna get bsd A LOT, the thing i would recommend is loccking off and just before you do the ground pound lock off and do it behind you, that way they'll get a DGH to the face intead of a bs.

    allso you should try the DGM, its my favourite weapon in the game, the poking attack is awesome and the damage is only slightly less than the DGA(the strongest weapons in the game in terms of ar) but has a better move set and reach imo ad it is the perfect weapon to use against great hammers because of the reach. other good ones are the MSGS, GREATAXE AND GRANT, also dont forget about the crossbows. here's my str build http://tinyurl.com/6uvnh3g i only use that set up when i get pissed and i wanna win, i go with 40 something poise and fast roll usually, ive been using med roll recently and its been working out pretty good for me. this is my leeroy build but i end up using the set up a lot http://tinyurl.com/85kogvm, i riposte for about 1500 with no buff and no hr lol.

    Looove the DGM ! I already have one str build on which I'm using MSGS/DGM (and trying to learn GA). http://tinyurl.com/7kqm9mk slightly different from yours, I like to have the rapier to finish them off when they have low hp and enough poise to get a good wolf/fap setup.

    I actually took a sneakpeak on your DGH and thought about making a build for that, wich is why I asked about the moveset happy Thanks for the tips, I'm not really that good fighting unlocked yet, since I've done most my pvp as a forest hunter which is a quite diffrent pvp setting (and playstyle) then lets say the burg.

    Ahahaa, never noticed it man! You may notice that I have an edited BG quote in my sig - rather than 'Jump on my sword evil, I won't be so gentle!' it got replaced with gankers due to my FH background xD Hmmm, I may use Go for the eyes Boo! Go for the eyes!!!!

    Amos: Aye I noticed, however I'm too lazy to change mine, feels good to let ppl think youre a thief winking I seriously wish FROM could introdce a cuddly giant space hamster in the dlc.

    Rant: Yea crossbow would save a couple of points, but I really like the sprinting r1 on rapier. Wish I had a ps3 so we could have a duel, you are after all this forums legendary Str-build-guy.

    Well guess I'll have to wait and see for when your vids start showing up then, looking forward to it!

    Took your DGH build and made a few minor changes, what do you think? http://tinyurl.com/75dljl8
    Think I will take a retired toon, raise Str and get a try the 1h moveset (DGH) before finishing the build to be sure.

    i think everyone should have a high sl toon so that you get to try everything and just make builds around the weapons that you like the most. if you have one just level him up a little more and try them, i did it and ended up sticking to str weapons.
