    Some guidance with my build

    Post by scotty1320 on Wed Aug 15, 2012 11:46 am

    Hi all,

    Would someone mind, if I posted my build tonight and somebody gave me some tips on how to level up? I don't seem to be doing a lot of damage (around 57 with the 1st hit), no matter what weapon i use (currently have a +5 divine weapon)

    I'm currently lvl 65 ish, and in Anor Londo, and feel like I should be walking though that place no problem!

    If someone is willing to help, I can post my build when I get back from work?



    Cheers

    Scotty

    Many people here will help.

    Now that you're level 65, levelling up might be hard. What is easier at that level, is helping with gear.

    So post up your build!

    You're problem may be the +5 divine. But yeah, after seeing your build we'll be able to assist with potential suggestions! big grin

    Thanks guys, and apologies I couldn't post last night!

    Current build as follows: LVL65, Vit:24, Att:10, End:27, Str:24, Dex:22, Res:13, Int:10, Fai:17

    Like I said, I have the divine Iaito at +5, but I'm sure I should be using something else! Any advice would be great!!


    PS The weapon damage on screen stats says Phy:118 +13, Magic 146+20, but I don't do anything close to that!!

    I would lvl up vit a little, and put that 1 extra point into faith so you can use twop and emit force. Other then that you really should be set for anor londo. Theres actually a crystal halberd right at the start of anor londo hidden in a mimic behind those giants standing against the walls. Its a great weapon to use on the boss.

    Divine Iaito would be better if you were heavily focused in Faith.

    You have a balance of STR/DEX, I would recommend something like a Claymore, Bastard Sword or Long sword. Get it to +10, and for extra damage, two-hand it, and cover it in a Resin (fire against Anor Londo foes, as they're lightning resistant a lot of them).

    The attack rating (AR) is not damage done. Your attack is compared to the enemies defence; so if you are fighting Queelag (immune to fire) and you had a firesword that had 100 physical/100 fire, only the 150 physical would matter, and it wouldn't do a lot of damage.

    Edit: the crystal halberd is great, but has a very low durability, so you should save it for those enemies that are really tough (Boss).

    Thanks for the advice!!! Actually made it to the boss, and had the second guy down to quarter health (helped by the NPC guy)!! Couldn't have got close without the crystal halberd. Now out of humanity, so back to the depths to farm sad Damn invaders!!!

    Do you have the lightning spear from Sen's Fortress and Ornstein's soul?

    Anyway if you have them, go to the giant blacksmith of Anor Londo. Select modify equipment, and select to downgrade the lightning spear to spear +10. Now choose to upgrade the spear to the Dragonslayer Spear with Ornstein's soul. You need 24 Str, 24 Dex and it scales with faith so your stats are perfect for it. I hope you defeated Ornstein instead of fatty.

    Don't think I have the lightning spear, i'll have a look tonight. Is it easy to get?

    Haven't beaten the boss yet so no soul!

    Anywhere closer than The Depths to farm humanity from where I am?

    Sorry I wrote a big paragraph and it got erased. Check the wiki on how to get the lightning spear. Why farming when you can coop? You get 1 humanity, souls and good practice from the boss. Drop your white sign at Solaire's bonfire at Anor Londo.

    I personally think the Dragon Slayer spear is more for an experienced player, but that's just me.

    I think you'd do better with heavier armour/weapon.
