    Post by Myztyrio Tue Sep 11, 2012 10:32 pm

    I'd like a PvP valid build capping at 120, or 125 if necessary. Currently:

    Vit: ~20
    End: -
    Int: ~24
    Str: -
    Dex: ~12
    Mag: ~30
    Fth: ~12
    Luck: -

    ~SL 50

    Starting Class: Royalty
    Armor: Monk's head wrappings, roMagicalSharpness, mp regen ring, Starting Royalty armor
    Weapons: Crescent Falchion +1, Crescent Estoc +2, Starting shield(+5), Wooden catalyst
    Spells: Fireball, Soul spear thing, HSM, Firespray, heal, bought second chance(Not sure if I want to use it)

    Suggestions?

    You need Second Chance for serious PvP, the buffs are stupidly powerful. If you're using small weapons I recommend the Kilij buffed with Enchant Weapon. If you want a more mage based build you'll want the Kris Blade and as much Int as possible (it caps at 50 just like DkS). Mag gets diminishing returns after 30, so it's not worth increasing in my opinion, unless you're increasing Faith as well for the Talisman of Beasts. With enough Int you'll want Firestorm, HSM, Soul Ray, Fire Spray and the Combustion-like spell. Vit caps at 50, and for rings I recommend Ring of Magical Sharpness and the Foe's/Friend's Ring and the Cling Ring (obvious choice for invading).

    So I have two choices if I'm correct:

    Cap Mag at 30, where it is. Maybe put in 30-40 dex for a dex/mag build? Is this a good choice?

    Go all the way to 50 with Mag, 18 with faith and spam ToB.

    I need to know, because I'm leveling him up right now.

    On a side note, I could use a little help with Valley of Defilement :/ Black phantom killed me.

    Dex also caps at 30. Int caps at 40 sorry and if you're leveling Mag after 30 you're better off leveling Faith to 30 first while using the ToB.

    So either Maj30/Fth30
    or
    Maj30/Dex30?
    But I see all these builds floating around with 18 faith(mine's at that now)

    Yeah, 18 Faith to use the ToB, but you need just 16 Faith for Second Chance. 30 Mag / 18 Faith ToB is weaker than Wooden Catalyst. I would use Insanity Catalyst and heal MP with Old Spice. 44 Mag / 44 Faith ToB is stronger than Insanity Catalyst.

    So is the 44/44 a good option? Or would 30 mag with more of a melee aspect be better?

    I literally don't want to go into 5-2 without a phantom anymore.. It's the only particularly difficult and ugly place i've come across.

    44/44 is not worth it in my opinion. You're better off with Insanity Catalyst and Old Spice healing. It's only good if you're going for a pure mage build. I have a Dex/Mag build with 30 Dex and 30 Mag, I recommend that if it's your first PvP build.

    I think that's probably a good option, considering I have more experience with dex type weapons anyway. So it probably isn't really worth having crescent or moon weapons then is it? Wouldn't sharp be the way to go, then enchant with light weapon?

    Sounds good, I'm also going to make a strength build and use ToB for Cursed weapon. I'm enjoying this Mirdan Hammer I happened to find in 2-1.
