    Paladin (faith build)

    Post by RandelOolacile on Thu Aug 09, 2012 4:12 am

    Hello, everyone!




    I'm wanting to make a faith build. Its the last type that I haven't touched and would love some input! This build will also help me get the miracles trophy (I thought I only had knights honor left sad )

    So what kind of suggestions do you guys have? What i was thinking was a build with 30 faith. That's all I've got. Lol, no, but seriously. The armor build in the picture is what I'm thinking.

    Head: cleric
    Chest: brass
    Arms: silver knight
    Legs: silver knight

    This gives me a respectable 44 poise and some good defense! Main weapon maybe Astora strait sword? Shield I'm going with silver knight shield. Looks and practicality! big grin

    Miracles...Im a potato with so lay them on me!

    Alright, that's it. Thanks for the info!

    Looks amazing!!! You have to decide what type of weapons do you want. Do you want to have very high faith and use divine/occult (I'm guessing divine due to build's theme) weapons and lots of miracles? Do you prefer a faith hybrid spellsword with a powerful buff? What type of weapon do you want to buff? Dex, Str?

    This is my powerful pure faith build. It's special because it relies on the power of the buff rather than the AR of the weapons. Once the buff runs out, it switches to occult weapons (Great Scythe, Zweih).

    Hey, Wyrm!

    I just got done fooling around with the character builder and this is what I got. No clue if it's good or not, lol.

    http://tinyurl.com/8hlcj9r

    This is just something to start with. I'm gonna check your build out now. big grin

    Edit: Jebus, I feel totally emasculated by your build! I would hate to face it in a dark alley...err, darkroot forest. big grin

    Initially I want to keep my build lower level. 50 for a good co-op range is what I'm thinking. So I went with Astoras strait sword mostly for the average scaling. Have any suggestions on a weapon that I won't have to worry about scaling? I hate that I can't buff the astora sword cause I would be down for darkmoon blade. sad

    I honestly don't know how to approach this in any tangible way. silly

    Ok what's your level cap? Do you mind changing SK gaunts for Giant gaunts? They give you 56 poise and look cool because the are tiny and stylish (although SK gaunts look cooler).

    Yeah, I think more poise would be good. The armor set I have set up mid rolls at 21 end with FaP. Giants would make me fat roll, right? Eventually I'm gonna take this badboy to 150 though so endurance will get more pumped more.

    Yeah Giant's make you fat roll, but if you going SL 150 your best bet is to make a 40 Dex / 50 Faith hybrid with a SK Straightsword and buff it with SLB / DMB. Your high Dex also means you'll be casting Great Lightning Spear much faster.

    Ah hell yeah! Now that's the kinda info I'm going for! big grin I just got a silver knight sword too while farming for knights honor.

    What are the best miracles to go with?

    You'll want 2 slots of WoG, Great Magic Barrier is too useful, GLS is cool for maintaining distance, and the 2 buffs Sunlight Blade or Darkmoon Blade. TWoP is very useful for ganks but I don't like to use it much because of its fame. Replenishment is very good for duels. GLGS Dance is great when done after a backstab. If you are into PvE then the lightning spears miracles are amazing against bosses. Gwynevere's miracles are good for coop backup healing. Force for joking around ledges and preventing backstabs and to stun hit. Emit Force is a joke, way too slow for PvP, but could be fun for PvE for some range. Healing miracles are a must for coop if you don't like spending humanity and the hosts estus.

    And obviously WoG is the most useful of all.

    Thank you, if you need a more specific answer to any miracle just ask. Also even though we don't have a builds section you can post them in the PvP section where the builds freaks like me like to hang out.
