    Best Straight Sword for a STR/DEX build

    Post by Azran on Sat Jul 28, 2012 4:16 pm

    Welp, as title says.

    I'm currently torn between the regular Longsword, the Darksword and the Silver Knight Straight Sword. The first two are actually buffable and share C/C scaling, while SKSS is lopsided towards Dexterity.

    Thoughts?

    They're all quite similar in terms of damage and moveset. On my str/dex build I use Solaire's sword, try it.

    The Balder Side Sword favors Dex more, but it is still fantastic. I've also found enjoyment from the Sunlight Straight Sword. I think that is C/C, but don't quote me.

    The silver knight sword is also buffable, has longer reach, but its slower and heavier. Unique moveset.

    Longsword and Sunlight straight sword have the same moveset and range, thrust and slash attacks

    Broadsword and Barbed sword have the same moveset and range, only slash attacks, but the barbed sword does less damage and causes bleed

    Darksword has an unique moveset and good range

    Balder side sword is 50% straight sword and 50% rapier - dex oriented

    You can buff the Silver Knight Sword too.

    Oh. Thought you could only buff the SK Spear. silly I'm trying to make a SL100 build; I'd like to go +15, but I guess I'll have to go with Lightning.
