Spellsword Build (Gets the hatemail going!)

9 replies 1987 views Edited Nov 22, 2012

I had this build as a Pyro Dex/Mage before the DLC hit, but thanks to dark magic, I went Dex/Mage.

It down right destroys people with its many 1 shot potentials. Anything that doesn't die in 1 hit suffers from a CMW Ricards Rapier or Balder Swag Sword.

 

Me and a friend managed to get a 2v2 in the arena and it wasn't even a challanged. Sure, people would use the Silver Talisman to deflect my dark magic, but they'ed just eat a Crystal Soul Spear in the face followed by a volley of Great Soul Arrows (Which are SOOO underrated)

 

I run Logans over Tin Cat because Id rather have more strong spells, then only a few Insanly strong spells.

Sides, what the spells don't finish off, I can with my weapons.

 

All in all, it's a blast and you will get hatemail simply because it runs Dark Magic.

Let them hate I say because a mage needed some of these spells to be a little more viable in pvp and dark magic, does just that!

This is a very interesting build. I prefer a pure magic build with Moonlight for my mages tho, it's so nice to see bosses die in one or two hits :smileyvery-happy:

LSoM?

I haven't made a PURe mage yet. Thought about it since Dark Magic makes them more viable in pvp now, but weapon options are kinda... bleh.

 

I mean, the Horn and LSoM are good, but the Greatsword nerf really ruined those weapons. Not that I am complaining because I hated fighting them things 24/7, but still, it does kinda limit a pure mages weapons options. Or so it seems I guess. I haven't tried using Magic or enchanted weapons so I shouldn't be too quick to judge.

I have been using the Moonlight Greatsword (LsoM was Demon's Zel lol) and its appeal lies in the ranged R2 more than anything. I do not know how great it is for PvP, since I hardly do it, but now that the flip ring of cheapness has been nerfed being a mage is more fun

Oh yeah.... MLGS, not LSoM... Im just use to calling it LSoM.

I see it used sometimes in PVP. Not so much since the gr8sword nerf, but its still there. Main thing now is fast dex weapons. Wish STR builds had some faster weapons. Would of been nice if that rumor from day 1 was true to were higher STR increased attack speed lol.

If you spam it, then yeah. I agree that it can be lame. Specially in the DLC with everything flickering/going invisible and adding lag ontop of that.

 

However, if you use it sparringly, then it's not bad.
