dex build?
is a dex build viable? 2x dagger would that even work or do we always need a shield equiped? thanks

a dex build is viable but dual weilding any sort of weapon, well to me, has no advantages. Well i guess if you're dodging but even then, weilding a shield, in my experience, will always be superior. try estoc+15 and target shield if you're a parry kind of person :)

ye parrying is pretty darn fun, does it work in pvp?

it sure does work in pvp, though there are some attacks that cannot be parried I just don't remember what they are.. just gotta know the timing since it varies between people since the connection delay but it feels sweet when you land one.

Honestly, I wouldn't rely on parrying in PvP as it's kinda wonky. You have to press it in advance to compensate for the lag and even then, it puts you in a pretty bad open position. Leave parrying to singleplayer ;) It's not impossible online, but not recommended.

Dex build with a chaos blade is pure awesome.

well Reapling thats true but if you can land one... it can turn the situation around, just gotta be smart about it... also won't learn how to do it if you never try.. gonna be alot of fails though. lol

Yep, I love my dex build. A +15 uchigatana with 40 dex will slice through practically anything with ease :P

totally viable. i have a pure dex build right now with absolutely no strength (9 str default on bandit, heater shield is essential). its a huge pain in the ♥♥♥ in the beginning considering how weak the dagger is but once you get claws, thats when the fun starts.

Rpier will give you the highest crit damage, especially when paired with the hornets ring. Dual wielding is viable for certain combos, such as the parrying dagger in the off hand. Or a claymore + Zwei stunlocker.

I have a SL40 Ciarn build, using the two PTE Daggers and her armor (Dark & Gold Tracers).

It is a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ of fun in pve, pretty awful pvp though. Fast roll is a must.

It's all about style for me, so effectiveness or 'winning' doesn't bother me.
