Question about couple of builds

#1madcat7673Posted 10/16/2013 3:57:54 PM
My friend and I plan on cooping (yes, I know I'm doing it wrong) through the entirety of the game as Shiva and his bodyguard. I threw together a couple of preliminary builds just to see what they would be like. I think they're alright so far, but maybe I'm missing something. Any suggestions on these? I feel like even going to sl120 with these is overkill, but I might be wrong?

Shiva looks good but the bodyguard isn't optimal. First off 15 Dex isn't needed, Uchi's are 14/14. Second with those same stats a pyromancer class is only lvl 114, so that not only cuts Dex by 1 (Thief can't drop below 15 of course) but frees up some stats for Vit or Attunement, though i'd suggest Vit

i dont think the vit would be a good use for the extra levels 85 to 91 is only 46 hp

u could instead put 2 in attune and 4 in faith for heal or possibly 6 into dex to use the iaito for a but of variety

Why not level dex for the thief? Get a bit more attument, 15 int for magic weapon. Heals. And use iaito. Over 50 vit is also a bit much id say. Using a normal weapon is better in dlc.

It'd be good if I was just going for a regular themed build like this, but the reason I'm going with the weapon/armor/spell setup is for the reason IFDragon said.

The reason I suggest Vit is because they're going for a theme build, as such any miracles breaks that theme as the cosplay target uses no miracles. They also don't use Iaito's, magic, or any other such. If TC would be willing to break cosplaying in small areas, sure I'd suggest other than Vit, but because they were going for a theme Vit, even 46 HP, may be better than another Fire Surge, three should be plenty as it is.

Never seen that ninja cast firesurge. Also pretty sure he has way less hp than suggested build because i kill him in a few hits. So where do you lay the line...
