RP Builds? For PvP, PvE and Coop...

#1Scorex_VIIPosted 10/27/2012 3:35:32 AM
Does anyone have this kind of builds? You know, builds with a little role play into them, favourite weapons, armor, spells etc etc, while being viable in all kind of ways?

Could some of you more veteran players give your toughts on my build? Im thorn between these 2 DEX builds:

http://tinyurl.com/8u4ds8z (More focused build, melee with some Pyro fun.)

http://tinyurl.com/8bffk62 ( More spread out, less melee and more dark sorcery, some Pyro, still more of a melee character with some spells to fall back)

I know there are FAR from being good PvP builds... I want a build that works well in PvE mostly, while still being able to have fun in PvP. I had a similar, weak VIT build in Demon Souls and while being fragile, i had lots of success.

So, of those 2 what is the least problomatic build for PvP? Again, i know they are not even that good, but everything on that build is thinking in RP proposes, flavour and you know, FUN. While having a little unique feeling. Im was tired in Demon Souls of seeing every time the same builds, and in this game, seems to be about the same... Everyone just pumps VIT, which, imo, makes duels rather silly boring...

They arent bad, why the f*** would they be?

As long as you dont suck at avoiding backstabs and dont wanna hit trade (ie: you know how to pvp effectively) you should be more than good with those builds.

Well, tbh i dont think they are bad... My main from Demon Souls was extremely similar with the second DEX/INT one, really fragile, but he was SO versatil and effective. Once i got the hang of it, i was good at avoiding and leaving my opponent always guessing. Plus it was FUN, lose or win, i always had pleasure, something that i will not have with a "perfect" build and so forth. My main concern was since i dont know how PvP is in this game i didnt know how viable those builds could be, especially againt people with 1500-1900 HP, seriously, why is everyone raising VIT that Goddamn high lol.

I prefer the second build, the DEX/INT with dark spells only, might go for that one, and since its not that diffrent from my DEX/INT build of Demon Souls i feel confident with it. Just "scares" me the tought of going up againt VIT monsters when i am so damn fragile haha, i guess thats the price for versatility and FUN. As long i can make those Ninja flips count and not get hit, i dont see a problem.

Thanks for your input, more would be welcome :)

Role playing builds are the most fun IMO.

Well I have plenty of low vit builds and never have any trouble. Also use the same ring combo nowdays (dwgr+wolf) and usually run with 1300-1500 health (40-50 vitality)

Most people arent raising vitality more than you or me, they just use the fap ring and mom mask which puts them at the 1600-2000 range

As for having fun, most of the fun builds which are fun to play actually are very effective IMO (dex/int/pyro, dex/faith/pyro, int/faith) unless of course you define a fun build by 'looking cool and using s*** weapons' (like 80% of the community :D)

If you have more than one spellcasting method that already makes you very unpredictable, and unpredictability will get you the wins in pvp, not 2508 health as many would like you to believe. Of course in most matches your vitality gouged monster would also perform well enough, but put up against a good player with a fun/versatile build it will just fall apart very quickly.

Here are my 2 favorite builds now, might give you some inspiration (or something i dunno :D)

i got a RP gough build im working on for SL 125 gunna use the bow and throw in a stone greataxe

both the builds look pretty solid on the 2nd one id recomend replacing the dark orb its just too weak and casts as slow as pursuers also i think the hp is too low but thats just me (i go for atleast 1400 usually)

also dang only 1 more post for a while after this =[

You are right, black orb is really slow, shame because it looks cool and its quite fast to reach the target. I can simply get rid of that spell and the magic slot, and with those points pump VIT a little more:

Do you guys think that its a good idea dropping DEX to 40 and forget the small casting speed bonus and spend those 5 points in VIT instead?

I would definitely like to see an Artorious RP pvp build, basically no other weapon than 1 handing the abyss sword, maybe a power within pyro spell. While the 2H R2 is really cool, it's really not viable in pvp unless you get a drop on people when invading (the starting elevator in oolacile township comes to mind).

I'm doing a "ninja" role play build right now.

R Hand: Chaos Blade +5 / Pyro Flame +5
L Hand: Composite Bow +15

Essentially, no shield what so ever, the closest thing I get to blocking is two-handing the Chaos Blade. Ring Of Evil Eye is essential as it helps mitigate the health-drain from using the Chaos Blade.
