>>323413675 No. HMS is best paired with the Kos Parasite for maximum fuckery. Your version of the build has ~20 more AR and requires significantly more stats invested, has shit lasers, and doesn't get good damage off of hunter tools.
>>323414287 For pvp it's p low bud. Sir broccoli up above you has an aoe multi-hit blast that deals ~1400 damage in one tao of L2. Katanafags can pretty much one shot you with a transform attack. You won't live through much.
>>323414724 Hits for roughly 600 or so damage a swing in the deep chalices and most of its attacks can multihit. Might take some getting used to on some bosses but it's a good weapon. Pvp it wrecks fools, have not lost as cauliflower. Niggas love to spam r1, and they always end up getting 'sploded because that attack will not stagger.
>>323414548 the build says lv42-something, I don't know why anyone would stop levelling but I just stopped at 43 just to be safe so my vit is at 20. I have no idea how Souls games work so I managed with it until the DLC and Ebrietas, these two fuckers are fucking assholes.
40 endurance is a MUST have in souls games if you're going melee because it increases stamina (MUCH more important in souls as actions use up more stamina than BB), defense, and equip load. Even mage builds need a bit of it, it was the most important stat (It was nerfed a bit in DaS2 but i didn't play that enough to give you a straight answer)
In BB all it does is up stamina which is bountiful because actions take less of it
on the flip side, since most armors are similar to each other in terms of stats in BB, you can't compensate low vitality with heavier armors with endurance. This, coupled with BBs fast attacks and locks, means vitality is more important in BB
>>323415658 no I meant the in the guide the overall level is wrote as 42-something, it said vitality should be at minimum of 20 as well as endurance. I just don't know what the downside is to levelling up too much, I figured there must be a catch to that so I stopped levelling at level 43 with 20 vit and stamina, 10 str, 25 skill, 10 bloodtinge and 10 arcane
>>323416249 Ok, I'll try to get it, but right now it seems impossible, I didn't have the dlc on the first playthrough so now the hunter's nightmare is way too fucking hard, and the boss too. Or maybe I just suck. Anyway, I'll try and get the HMLS
>>323416092 >I just don't know what the downside is to levelling up too much
after level 25, you get diminished returns on stats
after level 50, you get severe diminished returns
if you're planning on pvping it'll be a problem because shit will go to waste (most people only take skl/str/bt to 50 because of this and take a secondary offensive skill to 25 e.g. the beast claws are a split between str/skl so 50 in one and 25 in the other)
the reason for this is because PvP is more active around level 100-120 so if you plan on capping yourself there and go above, you're wasting stats
an example is my current reiterpallsch/rakuyo build that I'm working on goes like this:
vitality: 34 endurance: 20 skill: 50 bloodtinge: 25 strength: 11 (2 points put into this to wield loch shield) arcane: untouched
>>323416343 scaling in BB does not work like it does in souls where all skill boost increase all damage. I learned this the hard way
for example, the bloodtinge scaling on reiterpallsch only affects the bullet not the sword. The regular chikage only scales off skill while the bloodied one is only off bloodtinge. For MLGS the arcane damage is very limited in the moveset.
>>323416598 You sound pretty knowledgeable, why do all weapons have Arcane scaling? I don't remember a single trick weapon that doesn't have some form of Arcane scaling, even non-elemental ones. Obviously I knew the arc scaling didn't actually affect damage since you can see how much your damage will go up in the level up screen, but I always wondered. I thought it would affect elemental scaling if you put in an elemental blood gem but I made a fire weapon out of the hammer to test that and it only got like +4 fire damage over the base fire damage even though it had B arcane scaling and I had 25 arc.
>>323417086 from what I hear it's mostly str/skl though you could be right I've only used it halfway throught a str. build and didn't optimize something by the time the DLC hit
>>323417091 >why do all weapons have Arcane scaling? you can add an "apply arcane damage" gem to activate the arcane scaling on weapon or a buff like empty shell (note: arcane attack added gems don't work for reiterpallsch despite it's good scaling)
>>323417395 it's still in progress so the vitality is gonna go up
25 blt because reiter's gun does great damage with bolt/fire paper. Also my original secondary was simon's bowblade but that used up too much QS so i opted for rakuyo
>>323417091 The arcane scaling, unless the weapon deals native arcane damage, is applied when you add in an arcane blood gem to your weapon. It removes the physical scaling entirely and the weapon deals elemental famage scaling with your arcane stat.
>>323417489 Skill is the least important stat for hms. Either prioritize strength > arcane to focus only on swinging the sword or arcane > strength for a more nuanced build with tools/ parasite alt and better lasers. Adding in skill means over leveling or having shit vitality/endurance, and you want some endurance so you can do the follow up fully charged double blade beam.
>>323419465 There are hunter tools which are reusable items that consume bullets to use and have arcane requirements that work similar to spells. It also affects weapons with innate elemental damage like the Tonitrus (lightning mace) or Logarius Wheel (magic wheel) or weapons infused with arcane damage.
