    A pure ranged build.

    Post by Spurgun on Fri Aug 10, 2012 10:22 am

    So i wanted to create a pure ranged build (sl 120).
    And this is what i came up with. It have the exact same rings as i have in every build i use. I might also use it as a unarmed dragon build.
    But could you come up with any variations? maybe i should use different stats/rings/weapons, etc.

    If i use that build then i´ll remove the DSB , because i want to be able to parry/ripostse, and i don´t like it.

    I don´t like a bow that killed dragons :evil:
    I parry running attacks, i´m pretty good at that. (except for the GS, *** the GS)

    Wait till you meet my spear lol. Just be aware that composite, while having quick draw speed, has lees range. It shouldnt be a problem but you are a dragon. Also make sure the type you ascend the weapon too has arrows for it. Im not sure there are fire bolts so you might want to go lightning for the xbow.

    A +15 with heavy bolts Xbow does more damage than a lightning one.

    And last time i fought you i beat you a couple of time IIRC silly

    EDIT: And what do you mean with less range?

    Just things like the longbow and stuff. Its really nothing.
    Last time we fought was the first time I used that build for pvp. Im a lot better now, especially against Gscys which you were using.

    I think that you would benefit from lowing your VIT to 10, or something like that, because you should capitalize on your advantage on not being hit. I think you should lower your SL to make the build better in comparison to other builds. I think you should use either the Longbow or the Black Bow, the Black Bow is my favorite, because it has the best range, but that rarely matters against other players, and the Longbow has more AR at any stats that have 11 STR or more. You should consider using a Short Bow for a back up, or Composite Bow, but the Short Bow should have more AR than it with the stats I'm about to suggest. You should get your DEX and STR up, probably around 40 DEX and 20-16 STR.

    I think you should use an Eagle Shield and another great shield that can parry, perhaps Sliver Knight's, because I also suggest you have 40 END, since you'll need that Stamina to move away and roll. You should use a different ring set. Wolf and RoFaP is great for your current build, but I don't find your current build is extremely effective to make bows and crossbows maximize their potential. Although Hawk Ring is nice enough, I think the Cloranthy Ring is a must, and the other ring should be whatever you feel your character needs after that. Maybe the Hornet Ring, if you think you can land a backstab with Dragon Claws, just be careful not to do it with a bow in hand. And make sure your weapons are +15, I dunno the details of other upgrade paths and Bows, but its easy for Bows to outdo the damage easily of the other upgrade paths, and in pure physical too.

    I think you should be ready with either Feather Arrows, if you intend to fight more at range, or Heavy Arrows, if you think you'll be too close more of the time, and your secondary should be Poison Arrows, although you can change it of course, its wise to be ready and these two are the best prepared for players.

    Spurgun you must try Avelyn that thing amazing for dueling. I would lower Vit and make 44 Int, enchanted composite bow with moonlight arrows, and 4 CSS for pure range madness.

    This build is going to be annoying as f*ck! big grin Archer with 99 vit....anyhow if you're going to use ranged weapons I would recommend Leo ring and replace chaos composite with +15 and sacrifice some vit for dex.
