    had an interesting idea, want to see who'd join in.

    Post by Rifter7 on Mon Aug 06, 2012 6:12 am

    hey so.. i just recently had an invader pop in on my dmb buff character..
    but he had pharris's hat on, looked like him too. so.. i didnt buff my weapon.

    anyways, couple pokes in, some spells (lol, wotg. im a ****) and he backs off, and then i do as well... and low and behold we're having a bow battle.

    now.. i'm going to ask everyone in my covenant, but i wanted to post it here too to see if anyones interested in having hosted bow battles.

    rules would be simple enough.. no buffing of any kind (grass herbs included), no healing of any kind (purple moss clumps included) and the gear has to be restricted to all 0 poise armor. (pinwheels are up for discussion..)

    your weapons can only be bows and crossbows, you may not have spells and you may use a shield for the purposes of blocking (no attacking with the shield). you CAN use kunais and poison kunais.

    let me know if you're interested.. i'm not sure where this will be hosted yet, but it'd have to be somewhere big with pillars or cover.

    the rules are up for discussion, but i think they keep fights shorter and more rewarding. the grass herbs and purple moss clumps in particular.. but yeah. LMK.

    oh yeah. i don't think i need to say this, but no dragon head glitching kunais and no dragon bow backstabs. if you want to use your dragon body go ahead, just don't use the abilities.

    crossbows (lets be serious, avelyn), a lack of purple mosses, shields and kunais should keep it from being sudden deaths like that..

    not sure tho.

    it would be cool, i think, to make a build from the ground up to use ranged weaponry. basically you'd have a dragonslayer bow, avelyn, one of the three holy bows (composite for me plz) and either a small shield to withstand the poison or elemental damages or a big one to bash with and use a crossbow... seeing as you can't kick the shield users.

    and then you just have kunais which can punish slow shots.. hell you could have a guy in a ninja suit that ONLY used kunais. it'd be funny.

    i think shield bashing should be okay. as long as its not that stupid shield that used to be overpowered in pve.. i can't remember its name.

    The moonlight pit or lost izalith might be good locations. Also sounds really fun!

    yeah but they can't heal poison, and are vulnerable while they reload to kunais and bows.

    kunais especially.

    also.. they don't have poison bolts. just elemental damage, a decent lightning/phys shield can counter it.

    you'd need a shield with good fire, lightning and poison resistances.. and i don't think theres any shield thatll cover all of them without drawbacks to weight or lost resistances (poison in particular), so it should be pretty rock paper avelyn.

    or just no shield at all, but if you mess up that roll and its something poisonous coming at you..

    and then if they were very tanky you could shield bash and use kunais or a avelyn.. idk. dragonslayer bow should punch some holes in them. or at least their stam.

    Mind if I butt in? This sounds like a great idea! To ensure no estus recovery, do you think having a surplus of Lloyd's Talismans should be in the gear list? I mean it really only effects the host and doesn't cover humanity, but you asked for input and I provided. Also, you'd assume people involved have some shreds of honor.
