    Post by FAMISIL1 Thu Jul 04, 2013 9:28 am

    So... being bored with the usual crystal magic i decided to create a build with the objective of using black magic only.

    But my problem is that i dont know what weapon to use, for me it was always Moonlight GS.

    I want something diferente, any opinions?

    A weapon on the enchanted+5 or magic+10 path or the butterfly horn?

    Might as well go for the butterfly horn then if you were thinking spear.

    Balder Side Sword + Crystal Magic Weapon.

    It's worth sacrificing the Attunement slot.

    some enchanted weapons become ovscenely strong @ 50int, prime examples being zweihänder and composite bow + moonlight arrows. best spear is a no brainer

    MLBH is great, but you need a back up for GMB users.

    I say go with Pursuers and the Lightning Avelyn, just don't shoot if they roll through it towards you, you may hit them, you may even hit them with all 3 bolts and stagger them, but at that range, they will still recover before your reload animation is complete.

    Dark Bead's range is underrated.  If you have 12, you can chip off about 25% of their health from a distance.  Just save 1 Dark Bead for a well timed parry...it'll end the fight. twisted 

    If you're not gonna buff your weapon, then use Strong Magic Shield.

    Dark Bead-->Dark Orb is a decent combo.  Just don't give that combo away from the start.  Make  them think DB is all you have.

    Keep in mind DB will still break  poise on a GMB user.  Use that if they press overconfidently, then backstab with a...Chaos Dagger or something.

    Have fun and don't get too confident with Dark Bead.  It's an excellent spell, but can be rolled through  like anything else.

    I decided to go with a enchanced +5 Estoc, with the leo ring.

    If that doesn´t work out, i will find something else


    Thanks for the opinions:00004:

    The Leo Ring won't work very well on split damage, as it only effects physical damage. You'd be better off with a buffed +15 Estoc, or just going without the Leo Ring altogether, as it's not worth a ring slot without the full effect.

     Ohhh, really?

    Well that changes everything, i will put DWGR then, use the enchanced + 5 Estoc as my main weapon and the +15 estoc with CMW for bosses and PVP, or maybe a silver knight sword?

    Sorry for my bad english.
