How would you make a Belmont build?

#1game_wiz101Posted 3/21/2012 6:26:52 PM
Unfortunately for me, The Castlevania series is quite foreign to me. The only one I've ever played is Circle of the Moon (GBA) and that was back when I was in elementary school. Regarless, I loved the game, and I'm screwing around with the whip(s), so I thought I'd ask you guys how you would personally build one. I get that there are multiple Belmonts and other non-Belmonts, so looks depend on your favorite, but whips and throwing weapons are guaranteed.

Currently I've started as a theif, made a suicide run through Blighttown to get to the whip starting from the waterwheel (lol, and I'm running around the Burg with a whip, a knife, throwing knives and bombs, heal and force, black leather pants, and wanderer coat/gloves. What would you do?

Notched whip with any of the starter clothes you prefer, he needs something raggedy.

You are doing it pretty much the way I did it, except I used leather armor with no helmet, since for what I remember that whay they wore on the NES they wore circlets on their head but the closest thing to that is the dusk crown.

When you eventually get the spiked whip in Painted World, make it Fire or Chaos. In the old-school games, you could temporarily buff the whip with fire for more damage.

Other than that, you've pretty much got it down!

Follow up question! Should I bother with support sorcery spell at all?

Instead of making your weapon elemental you could raise it to +15 and use sunlight blade on it so it is enchanted only temporarily like in the games.

I already planned to invest in faith. I was asking if I should bother with intelligence for support spells (i.e. spells Dusk of Oolicile sells) for fun/to fit the character.

Belmonts and others of note:

Simon. Red hair. Small breastplates or leathers. Sandals or waistcloths.
Trevor. Brown hair. Heavy leathers/furs.
Juste. White hair. Magical options. Heavy gloves, leggings, longcoats.
Jonathan Morris. Blonde. Can use more basic weapons other than a whip, usually bigger swords.
Eric Lecarde. Leather, waistcloths, spears.
Grant Danasty. Roguish gear. Dagger specialist.
Soma Cruz. White everything. Big sword specialization, but can use exotics easily.
Alucard. Capes and dark armor (Balder gear works okay.) Small to medium sword specialties, but could also use Soul sorceries and shields. White hair and tall.
Shanoa. Female. Long black hair. Rapiers, scythes, hammers, bows, or pyromancy. Blue things, AS MUCH BACK AS POSSIBLE.

Be sure to use lots of throwing knives and firebombs!
