Been looking into building a character focused around the Great Sword of Artorias and wanted to know if there were any suggestions as to what equipment/spells/miracles I would need. Figured I would keep it centered around a tank build.
Also what starting class should I use and which sword is better for Pvp; true or cursed?
ShadowElementRegulus posted... It's actually really difficult to center it around tanking, because it requires a very broad stat spread. Though you'd probably need to be kinda tanky to make the R2 attacks worthwhile.
The sword rather thoroughly sucks. The stat scaling is piss poor, even with all stats at 50 it is out damaged by some Fire/Lightning weapons.
Not any that swing anywhere near as quickly as it. And actually, I don't think they would truly out damage it, except on paper. for me, with 24/40/44/20, it does 570. I think with 40/40/44/40 it would easily do 650-670, and for how fast it swings, that's fantastic. Not to mention that a lot of the damage it does is pure magical, not lightning or fire, and not many people stack magic resist.
I'll be honest - I want to do a GWoA build because the sword looks cool, not because I have any plans of turning into any sort of super-competitive PvP build, but I would like to make it as effective as I can.
