    trends in dks

    Post by djgq42 on Mon Jul 09, 2012 10:48 am

    ever notice how dks is dictated by trends? i will start off with the choas blade. one of the most ridiculed weapons in the game originally and now thanks to peeve peeverson ppl's are sporting their dex/pyro builds with the cb. what changes have you noticed since first playing dks?

    I've noticed the HavelMcZweiFlippers have started putting the Zwei down and just going for rapiers.

    I've noticed the BKGA becoming a lot less prominent now that people can parry, and a mass increase in Giants MoM and MLGS users.

    chaos blade was cool before peeve ruined it imo, i had seen some legit pvp'ers before that used it really well. the whole draining of your vit is pretty awesome and so minute that it doesnt even matter specially since chaos blade builds have a lot more points left to put in vit. and yes everyonw is using lightning rapiers and mlgs.

    Yes^

    Also patches change pvp drastically, like pre-patch TWOP and ROF were really popular, now all everybody does is BS.

    No, Mossad - the worst is having 100 matches in a row as a forest hunter with a Stone Greatsword or two dragon glitchers or wait - a 1v3 with two dragon glitchers and a TWoD'er... this game is actually beginning to die for me, the hacking has become too prominent and the glitching. FHing has become impossible.

    Mask of the Child has been abandoned for MotM, which I really don't like, I also see the Zwei a lot less, which is sad for me because the Zwei is easy to fight if the flipper is a noob. The OP Giants armor is as popular as ever, and TWoP has made a comeback in the forest lately, which is terrible. It might be nerfed, but it lasts long enough for two people to stunlock you to death.

    I wasn't here for early game PvP but I don't see why the chaos blade was laughed at. It's potentially the strongest katana if you have humanity, and its the most BA thing ever. Did 1.05 make it stronger?
