    Making a 40/40 build.

    Post by Domassus on Sun Jul 29, 2012 6:26 am

    This was the best decision of my life. The Crestfallen Warrior fights again: http://tinyurl.com/d6d7qwg

    In all seriousness though...the longsword hits surprisingly hard. Are there any other things I can do to further push a build like this to the limit? I've never taken much interest into these types of builds until I decided to do a Crestfallen Warrior cosplay and would love to hear what other people run on their 40/40 builds.

    EDIT: I might just change this thread to a place I dump some of my cosplays that are possible through this build, which is essentially almost everyone with a straight warrior profile. Here's some others I put together (quite a few use Havel's ring to increase equip load for fast roll, you can always change this and be a real man unlike me with mid roll):

    Kirk!

    Solaire!

    Alternate Solaire with Faith! (This is technically a 27/40 variant)

    Tarkus!

    Havel!

    thats a sexy build. all i say is drop the wolf ring your poise is pretty crappy anyway. i say either ring of steel protection or speckled plate ring. certainly a powerhouse tho have fun with it!

    Thanks for the kind words! I tried the build without the poise given from the wolf ring and it's doable, just painful sometimes when you get stunlocked by a katana sad. Added a few other NPCs I plan to roll around as down the line after the Crestfallen Warrior gets me done in. I really want to finish the 27/40 faith variant I posted too. If anyone has any recommendations for that build actually to get it closer to 120 with 28 str intsead of 27 I'm all ears too. SLB on the murakumo is an option with that build though and the numbers I keep running scare me on how hard the mura would actually hit.

    Can anyone recommend some good c/c or similar to try? Ive got a halberd to try next and the sunlight straight sword. How's the darksword? I have little experience with it but love the moveset.

    Try type garg Halberd, reg Hal, mura, lucerne, clay/bastard gs and any C/C weapon you can find.

    I use the regular scythe on my 40/40 and it never lets me down. It's moveset is random as *** too so if you keep switching between 1 and 2 handed you'll wreck em.

    washing pole works well too... hand axe is okay... a rapier would be brutal also look into using the warpick.

    Ha I found another one cosplaying the Chainmail warrior big grin what a happy day!

    That build is awesome, you can cosplay so many characters, and they all hit very hard!

    this is mine: http://tinyurl.com/ch3bqcx

    The gargoyle halberd IS an excellent choice for a 40/40 build. Also consider man-serpent greatsword or the pike/sks.

    I have a shiva build i really like, its one of the more viable cosplays. It's the only build i use that uses dwgr, even though i know shiva doesnt technically use it. It's very fitting. http://tinyurl.com/d7fztcj
