I didn't even think about Resin. XD I feel like an idiot. Iato should work in that case, but I still like the Guardian Tail Whip idea.

Not too crazy about Power or Comb, I like Acid Surge to make peoples stuff useless, bit of a troll type thing. Could probably do with just Toxin Mist instead of poison mist at all.

The vit could probably be played with. I like the idea of keeping it closer to 100.


Yeah man go with it. Just trying to give you some ideas.

FYI Whips can't backstab or parry.

Dark Silver Tracer has highest crit damage for any DEX weapon and inflicts Toxin with 1H R2.

IIRC Dark Souls scientists determined that acid mist doesn't really do enough durability damage to break weapons that aren't already half-busted, even if you stand in the middle of the cloud the entire time, which nobody you fight ever will.

The one cool and very ninja-like thing the mist spells do is conceal your actions and position from the other player; you could conceivably use it as cover to fire off an arrow or some thrown items or a better pyro spell.

Well that makes it sound like the mist would deff be worth it. Help get some dung pies and what not off.

You had 50 dex. Too high. You still get maximum returns on the gravelord swords scaling at 40. Off the top of my head, it scales an E in both stats. Also added vitality and with your fog ring, a sneak attack tempest with ascended pyro glove would be pretty nasty should you pull it off.

I have a spare tracer if you need it, on SL 125 character though.

Interesting. I like the idea of a chaos bow.

I like that a lot more. With chaos bow, go fire arrows. Consider the putting the silver tracer in your off hand if you're not going to give yourself the ability to parry unless you're looking for backstabs.

Stamina caps at 40 end, so why'd you go up to 42 when you're only at 15% weight? I don't get the 20 strength either.

Have you tried the composite bow? I think it draws a little faster and works better for PvP.
