    Just like the title says, I haven't been paying attention much to the dlc I know it's coming buuut... from reading the forums(I haven't been on forums much either) it sounds like the PvP soul level is dropping from 120 to 99. Is this true? And also what other things are changing PvP in the next patch?

    More than can be explained or understood without serious knowledge of the new stuff and the current meta. Even then there would be a lot of guesswork. There are lists of changes in the pc section. look there.

    If you ask me the PvP really needed this facelift that the new patch provided.

    Some changes:

    I'm hearing a split in regards to the new SL, some say 99, some say 149.

    I still say 120, I think 99 is just too low for a build to be really unique and solid. Using magic or buffs would be so hard, heavy armor would be just so no-no. 149 is pretty much the opposite in my opinion. of course these are just my opinions, but I hope 120 stays busy enough.

    At 100, some sacrifice is necessary for hybrids. Thats as it should be. By adding magic, you dilute your melee. At 120 everybody is a hybrid, but no-one has to sacrifice anything significant. Its the same problem others have with the beiber ring, its an uneven trade.

    I would be really happy if the new big level was 99 as that would allow me to build an effective Artorias but still have to make necessary sacrifices and all the choices that make a build unique. At 80 it had way too little hp but at 99 it can have a reasonable amount if not as much as many other builds. I can't wait for the update and dlc to reach consoles.

    I think the ease of use offered by the arena means the "busy" levels are going to be ones at the top end of a bracket 99 149, 59 is actually close enough to 60 which is an area I enjoyed goofing off in so I might be busy there.

    99 is like a weird place where builds are "almost" what you'd expect from 120 with less gouging and almost no buffs. Since no decent INT or FAI scaling weapon is buffable either you buff a close to base (little stat scaling from investment) weapon or have Dex up high. I say Dex because for various spoiler reasons I feel like STR weapons will be somewhat more akward to use. and at 99 Quality is right out the window (unless you dislike having HP and Stam) While at 149 I see almost no reason to not end up using 45 dex Pyro with CMW tacked on.

    No matter what the changes end up being I think most of the community, like myself, is excited for the change and is more than ready to blaze a new path

    Yeah i can make an effective Ciaran at SL 80 so those 19 points can take me anywhere!
