    gear that looks cool and actually works?

    Post by Rifter7 on Sun Aug 05, 2012 2:43 am

    hey. so lately i've been swapping out my giants and moms mask whenever an invader pops in that isn't wearing a similar set- just so they don't whine about it or anything, and so it's an even playing field and i'm not left standing there after a win wondering if it'd be a loss without the gear.

    its kind of funny, i've had people cheer when im done swapping everything. but anyways...

    i need some suggestions on gear that looks cool, but also will set me at about 53 poise (minimum 31-36 for either kat 2h r1s or greatsword 1h r1s.) and give me some decent defense. i'm not really down to rock diapers and a bib with my weapons you know haha.

    atm on my guy and girl characters i just rock no masks and use havels legs and gloves. on the guys theres great lord armor, thiefs mask and the havels. on the girls its mask of the sealer and crimson robe with the havels.

    does anyone have any suggestions for the swap out set i'll be running? i kind of like velkas, paladin and wanderer armor, and i wouldn't mind getting rid of the havels if it's possible.

    thanks! sorry if this is in the wrong spot.. i figured it was pvp related tho.

    the tumor head one?

    looks kind of funny.. like a jac o lantern.

    i tried putting smough legs on with normal sized armor, i felt like i was one of those robots from those japanese shows.

    but if i combined the two.. then.. i would look epic.

    Wanderer coat is cool and is good against pyromancers. I love that piece of armor.

    The Paladin armor has decent defensive stats and I like the way to chest piece looks.


    EK Chest is great too

    Most of the armor is pretty decent, even the light armor. Of course you can wear full giants or havels, but if you want that defense you're aren't going to have much variety. One of my favorite set ups, which is pretty plain is this http://tinyurl.com/8vxzpn8 sometimes the rapiers a scimitar. My favorite, which i guess is still viable is this http://tinyurl.com/8fq7um5 . Anything works, just try to get either 31 or 53 poise and use what you think looks cool xD

    Use the Black Cleric Robe. You'll automatically get SSS style combos.

    I like this setup,

    Helm: Elite Knight +10

    Chest: Knight +10

    Gauntlets: Black Iron +5

    Leggings: Knight +10

    Looks cool good poise and decent defenses.

    1. Wanderer Coat / Hollow Thiefs Hood
    2. Dingy Robe / Thiefs Mask
    3. Black Cleric Robe / Thiefs Mask
    4. Witch Robe / Witch Hat

    I love using Catarina gauntlets and leggings with armor of thorns. It looks cool, at least with mz black face big grin Only downside: People always send me hatemails that I would be a Peeve imitator, I simply dont get that XD
    Also that wanderer boots actually look like knight leggings when worn with elite knight chest piece, at least to me

    idk about dingy robe with havel legs and gloves, but all those other ones look pretty tight.

    thanks for all the posts for builds, but i'm actually using these armor sets on builds designed to use giants armor/masks. i just take it all off when theres an opponent not wearing havel/hollow, giants or balder/havel.
