    Thief Build/Dex Build

    Post by B.Phanton on Fri Jul 20, 2012 7:12 pm

    Hi guys...I started my first build for PvP, is a Thief/Dex build to use Katanas and/or parry, here's the link for more details:

    http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=1404836355579884

    When I had the idea for this build, I would like to start invasions around SL30, but now I'm not sure if it's a good idea; and I really apreciate a little help with two questions that I have...

    1) How much Endurance?
    I'm using the Havel's Ring and the Favor and Protection Ring what allows my char to run faster even using the whole set. But for the PvP encounters I REALLY whould like to use the Fog Ring, but then I'll have to level up endurance or use only certain parts of one set to keep me fast (and I really would like to bet on speed)

    2) Katanas, Halberds or the two?
    I'm familiar with the Halberds but I would like to try Katanas this time, but I'm thinking to use both ^^...

    Thanks all for the help...and Praise the Sun!!!

    Why do you want to invade at lvl 30? just curious..

    Your first PvP build you'll want to shoot for lvl 120, IMO and learn the ropes before jumping in to low level pvp.

    Dex build you say,

    45 vit
    16 att
    35 end
    16 str
    40 dex
    faith 30

    this is a flexible build and gives you a powerful enough buff, as well as the 40 dex in scaling.

    Rings I would suggest Favour and Protection and dark wood grain. Armour is up to you but try and get a combo which will give you 53 poise or more.

    For your spells, I'd suggest Sunlight blade, and or Dark moon blade, as well as, Wrath of gods, and either replenishment or great magic barrier. That's a pretty solid build, and its versatile.

    Try out different weapons and try and find a moveset that you're comfortable with, a good starting point would be + 15 katana, and buff with SLB, and have an elemental backup, ~ Lightning / Chaos Claymore.. You cant really go wrong with this. Anyway, hope this helps and happy hunting.

    Try this one, it's a basic pure Dex build with lots of HP and some poise. With kats you really don't need high poise but if younare using the halberd I recommend 62 poise so that you can resist 2 spear pokes while you poke them back.

    its actually really good, i was using the bss but im not really good with dex weapon so i was getting owned so i decided to use a spear instead, i dont really like spears but the partizan is actually pretty cool, like that r2 a lot for dead angling, i buff with dmb+3 and two hand it and it hits from 450 to 700 depending on your opponent's armor, about above 500 consistanly on your havel/gian flipper.
    heres my build http://tinyurl.com/7m5uova
