Viable bow build? (Suggestions)

#1YoozayPosted 12/9/2011 5:02:33 PM
I've done all the basic builds apart from str/int but I'm not even interested. So I'm looking to make a bow build and wondering what close range weapon will work for this build? Also wondering if it'll work for pvp, well even if it doesn't I'm still looking to try and use the build within pvp. Any suggestions for this? Crossbows are also welcome, range SL 115-130.

Also what would be the fastest/strongest bow? Thanks in advance.

I was thinking of those two and perhaps DS bow in left hand also short bow seems to be the fastest, I'm still lost as to what to use for an offhand meele weapon?

^ Works well for invasions / trolling. Kind of humorous actually.

All I can say is Avelyn is probably the only thing you're going to hit anyone with in a duel that fires arrows / bolts.

we only assume people get Illumina because meeple needs it in his character analysis to bump up terra's stats when comparing her to others -- livinlarav2 on FF6

I think using the Darkmoon bow with the proper faith stat can be extremely powerful when coupled with Moonlight arrows.

Hmm, keep the suggestions coming guys, thanks for the help. I'm thinking that I'll left hand the avelyn and swith between it with DS bow through invo during certain instances. Not sure which bow to main atm, and still looking for an offhand dex wep just to apply pressure, anyone have any ideas?

Darkmoon Bow/Moonlight arrows with 50 faith

Black Bow of Pharis +15 with 50 Dex

In all honesty, you could probably stop at 40, but I like 50. I've been using a +15 uchigatana with my bow build. You could roll with a falchion to look like a complete BA with the move sets, but katanas are the way to go with a Dex build imo.

I think I'll get Black bow, unless the NPC decides not to drop it, but honestly I was looking to get away from the uchi because all my dex builds use it in some form or another. :(

I'll look into the falchion, actually and see what it's like.

This guy is a bow hero. I actually made a build like his. It works pretty well in PVP
