Looking to switch weapons

#1Sackboy_Posted 1/2/2013 9:58:01 AM
So I've been with my reinforced club for some time now (+10, thinking of going +15) and its helping me a ton, but I was wondering if there was something better I could invest in (or course around 4 weight points)

Why don't you use a light crossbow instead of a short bow? You can get 374 physical damage using heavy bolts.

I don't really have much experience using bows, but I usually only use them to get certain enemies closer to me (I don't expect it to do high damage). And since it weighs less, I find it useful.

Holy Smokes. I really do learn something new and exciting everyday about this game. I didn't even freakin know this online calculator existed.

In any event, I am a DEX build and so my weapon experience can't help here. However, I would certainly recommend trying another weapon that will change up your current playstyle and still benefit from max STR bonuses. I have a variety of Dex weapons that I enjoy using. Have you considered building a STR weapon that also has Holy stats on it? You are definitely going to need a divine weapon of some sort for Catacombs (if you don't already know that).

There's really not much better you can do for a STR based weapon with such low weight. There are better STR weapons, but you'll have to be willing to use something heavier.

I honestly never thought about any Holy stats, I've been focusing so much on this character with STR. I have a DEX character, but for some reason (i don't know if it was just how I allocated my stats) I did low damage at first and I didn't really enjoy it too much. I know about the divine weapon, thinking of getting a +10 club, since +5 is a pain in NG+

I'm fine with making adjustments, as long as it isn't too heavy.
