Question about Black Knight Halbred

#1ProtoDSPosted 3/21/2014 9:05:36 AM
I have mine to +5 and I'm mostly a DEX based build. I was wondering since it already has fire damage on it, would it increase if I imbued it with fire?

Also, I'm curious what is a good dex-based weapon to have lightning imbued on it? I currently have it on my Curved Dragon Greatsword, but am wondering if I should just bring that back to +5

If a weapon already has a elemental damage type and is not imbued (example would be any of the heide weapons or black knight weapons) you can either imbue it with the same elemental damage type or a different damage type.

Same damage type with take away 5% of physical damage and raise its original elemental damage by 43%.

Different damage type will take away 10% of both original damage types and raise the new damage type by 60% of the original elemental damage type.

It's a good investment if it already has a damage type other than physical, otherwise you'd want decent int or faith if you're gonna imbue something like a claymore with fire or lightning.

In that regard, what would you recommend imbuing with lightning (for fighting knights and dragons for instance) for a Dex-based chracter?

If you have good dex and faith I'd suggest one of the katana weapons. They mostly require dex and little str to handle. (I have almost all of them and i think the highest one i have is 16 str and 28 dex requirements)

Though, if you want a quality type build I'd have to go and max all of them to +10 (+5 for the special ones) to see what all their end bonuses are. The sword use the most is the sun sword. It's light and gets a A/A bonus from str and dex at +10. Its stats are only 15 str and 13 dex to wield. Though, I love it mostly for its move set.

I imbued it with lightning and my AR is like 660. But I also have 45 Str, 40 Dex, and 50 Faith.

Only Imbue it if you also have decent Int or Faith, otherwise keep it normal +5.

I am running Dex/Faith and I am running Fire and Lightning BKH+5 and they are beast!
So yeah it all depends on your INT and Faith.

On the regard of dual damage type weapons, I imbued my BK Ultra Greatsword with fire since I have high int anyway, +4 and with bonus I think it does around 4-500? I don't have that high of str though, so the physical bonus is lacking. Besides Heide and Black knight, I don't really know any other weapons that are dual damage types with fire or lightning.
