They have all these insanely high resistances that just seems to really screw over Dex users. I mean sure speed is great, but the damage output is so low. It is one of few times Strength builds just 1 hit something a dex build can't just 2 or 3 hit.
I hate feeling like I'm **** weak against the DLC enemies (considering the low soul pay outs anyway) and it bugs me.
What weapon would I benefit from more? atm I only have a 16/14 split, using elementals with 50 vit, 40 endurance, and on the way to 30 faith. --- PSN: Swordsaintscoot/ IronShadowDragon
I cleared all the scarecrows first, then used my bow and the fog ring. Their ground attack hits for big damage and has a large AOE. Also, there is a blue slab in a chest in a pond that the walkthrus and the wiki don't mention (last time I checked). --- Forest trees are greener.
I said dex. Murakumo is quality, by the time you factor in how much str you need to actually wield it.
By this logic the the balder side sword and great scythe are quality weapons. No Murakumo is a dex weapon with a ridiculous str requirement. Anything that scales B or A in dex is a dex weapon. --- PSN: DyingDreams A gamer is just that, regardless of gender
I wish someone with the PC version would get us what their defense values are exactly. Would be nice to know if slash is a particularly high defense, or is it about even with the normal and thrust defenses, too.
Anyhoo, great scythe R2s might have a chance at doing respectable damage since they're pretty powerful. Might also want to consider Flamberge. Or Scythe like someone else said though I think you'd be better off with Great Scythe's R2s. Gargoyle Tail Axe might work well. It's pretty powerful and decently fast so long as you keep connecting with good hits, so if you're good at meleeing them and taking big openings, you can sorta just chop at them and probably stun them, so you can hit them even more.
But, unless you're strictly deadset on using only dex weapons, I'd say just get a lightning reinforced club or something to bash these jerks in. --- I am snazzier, hot, hot rant. Warily slight as. Croak rush, OK? Weirder, almighty make out. ::)
Past that though, I don't have the strength for the murakumo (16 atm) I've got something closer to 20 dex now after farming dragon scales for the torso stone from drakes (it's really not that bad guys)
i'm thinking of a lightning claymore tbh. Not sure if regular or lightning would be better though given the lightning resistances, despite the relatively low stats.
I hate feeling so weak. Needs respec option so I use a god dang str build through the royal wood. =/ --- PSN: Swordsaintscoot/ IronShadowDragon
