    rob can you xplain this, I don't understand...who is weak?

    So not elemental weapons are looked down upon, but vitality builds?
    How much HP would be considered Vit build?

    In other words if I'm lower in HP then standard Vit build it wouldn't matter if I'm wielding elemental weapon?

    Don't worry, elemental weapons have been nerfed, that's why rob said they're weak. And no, vit builds aren't bad.

    Vitality Builds aren't looked down on anymore, it's just that back when the game first came out Elementals were on par with +15, so you could have all the offense with even more defense. Also, Vit with Lightning Weapons was the Gankers Build of Choice.

    It's kinda like how everyone hates the Masks of the Family, even though they are rather weak right now. Just left over hate.

    I don't know why you have the Str on there, but if you lower it to 14 and raise your Dex by that much, you get a good 30 more damage on your Baller Swag Sword, and 50 more on your Iato.

    Back on page 14, I mentioned it's a partly done quality build.

    Longsword is almost a quality BSS, and will give you a much better 2 Handed bonus, Iaito is a Dex weapon through and through, but I'm not exactly sure what you would replace it with.

    Having a shared amount of investment in str and dex is good for this event since we're intended to use a random weapon dropped by the host.

    ill have to start a new character, since i'm still relatively new to DKs. I hope it'll be ready in time. will lower-level characters still be ok?

    this is my planned build, i'm gonna have to try to make it in like 3 hours, but if anyone has any suggestion, I would appreciate them. http://mmdks.com/2d5f
    Wow dude, that's a really good build for someone who's knew to DKs. Just a thought: try hard-swapping Wolf Ring for Red Tearstone. Wear Wolf until you think you're under 20% health, then quickly switch them out.

    The event is next week. silly
    good idea, at least i'll have some poise. I don't have any experience with switching thins mid fight, so i'll have to try and practice a bit.
    does anyone have a recommended weapon(and soul level) for beating quelaaq? please keep in mind that I have rather severe time constraints(my mum is an enormous technophobe and only allows me to use my playstation a few hours a week 😢 ).

    Drake sword perhaps?

    Oh heyul no.
    If you invested in dexterity, use something like a Scimitar or Balder Side Sword.
    If strength, the Pickaxe, which is dropped by the barbarians that throw boulders.

    Alternatively summons, or get Maneater and some Gold Pine Resin (Three in the Burg if you haven't already used them)

    I'm assuming you are using the vitality build you mentioned earlier. 2 Handed Drake Sword will be fine, since Quelaag is immune to fire and thus fire weapons. The alternative is making something like an upgraded (as in Raw or +10) Broadsword, which could be time consuming if you don't have enough Large titanite Shards. Get Flash Sweat as well, really helps out.
    As for SL, somewhere around 30 should be fine, you'll more than likely see a lot of Summon Signs at that range.

    I have 12 str and 14 dex, and I am trying to make my build in just a few hours, so I need something which is powerful, easy to get, and doesnt rely on scaling or upgrading.

    Nah, screw it. I'm remaking the Smough build. But this time I'll also use it to cosplay as Tarkus, Iron Golem, Berenike knight and man-serpent :face:
    Will need lots of demon titanite though... EVENT: Warriors of Steel - May 25, 2013 - 7PM EST - Page 10 1330857165

    I can help with that, I have a couple of builds that can farm D titanite at SL 55, planned on using them on later events/invading shenanigans. I just need to transfer 10 of them to the build I plan to use extensively at the event.
    Got an Iron Golem Core that's pretty worthless for a build too, but I want a Quelaag Soul for another build, if that's alright.

    Sure I can give you the Quelaag soul.
    You can keep the Golem core. I won't be needing another one.

    Is there a reason you aren't wearing much armour? if not, may I recommend that you make use of your leftover weight for some more defence and poise.
