    What is a viable SL???

    Post by ROOSTER330 on Fri Jul 13, 2012 9:17 am

    Whats a good finishing SL for a playthrough, PVE only (except the occassional invasion), without any non NPC summons at all etc.

    Was there a set SL for finishing NG or a basic SL range the developers had in mind for finishing NG?

    I usually end up finishing around 67 if I just run through the game.

    First time with a pyro was 74. First time with melee was 80. I've heard people finish around 90-110. So relly 70-110 is around finishing level for new players. For experienced players anywhere from SL 1-120 depending on the level of pvp they do/if they are doing a challeneg run.

    Hmmmmm. That sounds about right then. I ask because I'm planning to do a full run through, all bosses etc, with a "true Norseman" build. Going to be something like this http://tinyurl.com/7tkl3f2

    And didnt want to be tooo high a SL level for it. Should be a challenge anyways with no elemental or other weapons etc etc, but I really wasnt sure what SL I should aim to cap at.

    60-80.

    I have to say though, you'll be getting pitiful damage out of that Broadsword with just 13 Strength and 14 DEX.

    That's entirely up to you!

    - Some people do challenge runs, end up SL1-30 or so, and it's viable for them.

    - When I speed run, I kill only the absolutely essential, and end up in the mid-60s, also viable!

    - My first playthrough I killed absolutely everything, and did a tiny bit of extra grinding on the side, and ended up around SL90 (that was pre-patch, though; mobs and bosses gave less souls back then).

    So if you challenge yourself, a viable SL can be as low as you want it to be. If you kill everything in sight, though, and don't do any grinding, you'll end up around 75-80 no problem (you could end up like this: http://tinyurl.com/7mhkbh3 ).

    Your very right. Ive pretty much limited myself to these weapons etc, and was thinking survivability with all the vit and end. My shield only blocks 85% physical so I wanted to be able to survive lol. You guys think i should add more dex or str? It would be solely for damage, as i wont add any elemental etc . Is it worth losing vit/end for the gain in damage?

    Also, the longbow scales A with dex, broadsword and spear go even Cs with str/dex...would i be better off just adding to dex? If i add to either....just seems that the damage increase for these weapons is so low, i wonder if i would be better off getting a couple extra swings with more end

    I finish up at SL100, low enough to help people in the 80's and 120's, but high enough to allow some versatility in my PvE build. But it's just my case, since I play with the intention of helping others and dropping stuff for them.

    Will prob end up somewhere around 70-75. With vit end dex about even, little more emphasis on vit /end
