What kind of fast roll strength build is viable?

#1dozingdevilPosted 2/9/2013 8:56:26 PM(edited)
It may sound like a silly question, but I feel like depending on the weapon you want to use, a poise breakpoint of 77 is the way to go, usually, depending on spread (and anything less than 70+ endurance) you'll only manage that with midroll.

Is a 53 poise fastroll strength build viable or is it really the only manageable fast roll strength build? (Excluding a 27str2h endurance gouge)

my planned stats are something like

There's enough weight and strength their for a bit more variety in weapons like the demon's great axe and dragon's greatsword just for fun.

i don't find midroll painful at all, I don't mind it in PvE at least, buuut I really have trouble coping with the jog and run speeds. that IS painful.

36 poise is good enough for a strength build. Mine in particular has 49 Vit, 42 Endurance, 50 Strength, and 18 Dexterity for Black Knight weapons. My rings are always Ring of Favor and Havel's since you'll absolutely need the extra equip limit and stamina.

It doesn't hurt to turn some DEX weapons into elementals, either. I keep a Lightning Shotel +5 around as a side arm for turtlers, and a Chaos Pike and Chaos Murakumo for the Gold Tracer/Combustion spammers. Chaos Composite Bow is a pretty good idea, as well.

This is basically how my fast Str build plays out. You can hit around mid-50's with poise too assuming you aren't using a 24 unit wep and a >5 unit shield.

this is my favorite STR build bar none. I've experimented with STR builds for years now

Obviously you can swap the lingering ring for hornets,wolf,DWGR, etc. etc.
and I only use PW for fun sometimes, if you want you can get 1 level more into int and have dark beads.

If I swap the ring to havels I can fast roll with the DGM and giants body + knight gauntlets (42 poise and high defence)

Most weapons look really cool with the GMW buff too
