Weapon Help

#1Dreth09Posted 2/20/2013 11:14:20 AM
Hey, so this is my build idea, but im not entirely sure what weapons to go for.

https://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=203627582571365258

Anyone have suggestions? This would be primarily pvp.
Also, since my strength and dex arent that great, what upgrade paths should i take? normal with weapon buffs, or elemental, given my stats?

why the random 18 dex? looks like you're going strength weapons with this.

I'd actually pick the weapons you want to use first and build around that. That's just my opinion though. Also I think you can afford to lose some vitality points and put those points into strength so you have 40 in strength. Especially since you have ring of favor and protection, mask of the mother, and replenishment. You're definitely not lacking in the hp department.

Is the greatlord greatsword any good? it looks like it has crap scaling, but still intriguing
And what about an elemental washing pole or murakumo as opposed to +15, cuz my stats dont compliment them well?
also, i noticed the large club has an A str scaling...

Its good for stunlocking but the damage is subpar

Its strong-attacks are also a bit too drawn-out and easy to dodge. If you're wanting a good "smash the hell out of people" sword the Zweihander can deliver that pretty effectively. Its horizontal swings are marginally slower since it's an Ultra Greatsword but the wind-up on the overhand slash takes less time to pull off.

hmm, what about Grant? With its A faith scaling, would it be worth getting 40 fai and dropping vit from 50 to 38?

I have to agree it is just not very practical for me. I am partial the grant cuz it has a club moveset for the most part and the rolling attack is good, I only use it on a Leeroy build though.
