    Optimize my Black Knight build

    Post by johnplaysdarksouls on Tue Jul 10, 2012 11:33 am

    Hi guys, I created a BK build last night and I'm enjoying it so far. I was wondering if you guys have some thoughts on it or ideas on how to optimize or improve it

    I do apologize though for the lack of a mugenmonkey link. I'm currently at work and can't get to it (site block). I'll post one when I get home

    Also, the stats I have below is from my memory, so if I miscounted something, please feel free to adjust it


    Here it goes:

    Starting Class - Warrior
    SL 120
    Vit - 50
    End - 55ish (I wanted to get fast roll but failed so I'm doing flips instead)
    Att - 10 I think (1 slot)
    Str - 40
    Dex - 16 or 18 (whatever the min requirement is for BK equipment)
    Armor - BK set
    Weapons - BK Halberd + BK shield, Pyro hand with GC
    Rings - FAP and Flip


    Thoughts? One thing I'm definitely planning on adjusting is taking some points out of End and dumping to Vit, just keeping enough points so I can flip. Although I would prefer it if someone could come up with a setup that'll let me fast roll instead of flipping

    Damage wise, it's doing ok although I could use some boost. I could probably take points out of Vit/End to place into Str/Dex, but the increase is so minimal and doesn't seem worth it

    Also, for weapons, I'm planning on playing around with the sword, halberd, and axe so I'd like the stats to work well with these three.

    Thanks guys



    Edit: here's what I have right now http://tinyurl.com/7j8o72u

    For fast roll instead of flip you'll need fap ring + havels ring and 78 End. I'm sorry.

    nice idea on that crossbow. I was actually thinking about throwing a comp bow on there, but now that you mentioned it, crossbow might be a cool addition as well

    this would bring down Vit to below 30, right? meh I don't think it's worth it. guess I'm sticking with the flippy ring

    if you dont have enough room for a light or heavy crossbow+15 go with a comp bow+15.

    Here's my take. Actually, I say it's my take, but it's really just your original build with the Endurance > Vitality change you said you were already doing, but with some suggestions others have said here already. It's basically what Rant did only using the flip ring instead of the Hornet/RTSR, and putting in the crossbow idea of his. Actually, the pyro flame is on the other hand, so I guess that's what I'll use to say this is my take on it lol!

    i personally like the crossbow better since theyre faster to shoot than the bows and they do really good damage about 200 to 300, i dont really like avelyn though, too slow.

    With some pyros that don't depend on casting speed by much.

    @Reaperfan: that is what I had in mind, I'll give it a try, thanks

    @rant: I've never tried crossbows before but it seems pretty cool, it try it out

    @wyrm and rant: I had a dex/pyro build before but didn't really use pyro as much, I'll keep mine to just GC for now then add in some pyros if I get bored

    Thanks for the help guys
