Armor wise it depends on the weapons you decide to use. But:
Male: basic staple armor. (Ven Sages, OKD, Black Leather) just as long as your Equip is half of the max burden.
Female: Same applies. (Binded set, Black leather)
For head gear you can even use silver coronet for that bit of extra mp.
LH: iCat, Talisman of God(for 2nd chance)/Dark Silver/Adjudicator +5
RH: This is where you can mix and match. I basically use a hard hitter (say the GS) and then a good stunlocker (Guillotine Axe) Basically from what I've read you dont want to use LW on your stronger weapon. Any crushing weapon with a base AR of 90 or less will make a good LW weapon i.e. Guillotine Axe. I'll explain more below.
Spells: LW/(CW), Warding, poison cloud,death cloud, Soul ray, ignite, fireball
Miracles: Second Chance (self explanatory) and dont like using it, again dump those 5 points into str or vit.
|Gameplay tips and progression||
Okay, so this is my first build that I've posted. I'll take all criticism good or bad. Some of you may say this is a variation of a spellsword. Which according to playing style it may be. Really, it's all a matter of opinion. Anyway, back to the explanation behind it all.
So everyone is saying that LW on a hard hitter like the Great Axe, DBS, etc is pointless. So I thought why not Use it on something weaker then? So. I created this. Anything that can be made crushing and has a base AR around 90 or lower makes a decent LW buff. Easy as that. You can either start out with your Smaller but still deadly weapon and throw a nice LW on it. or you can start out heavy and when you throw them around a bit and cant quite finish things switch it up. dont like LW? That's cool. Curse weapon works here too! :O How? easy. use CW with a cloud. if your cursed Heavy hitter doesn't do the job when you knock them down then just zap them with a poison cloud.
the explanation for 24 int. more spell slots for different spells (obviously). If you're using a knock down weapon use poison cloud and soul ray or just use death cloud. like more defense? warding is your ticket. Hell if you hate faith builds with a passion throw fireball or ignite in there.
LW does damage through shields (not including DSS) and passes through warding. Facing one of those faith/warding builds? throw in a fireball, or ignite. or just simply ride out that 40 secs of what seems to be pure invincibility.
(IMO) This can be a pretty good build with an open mind. You can flip around points easily without too much of a major change according to your playing style. And that's what is the important thing. I just wanted to make something a tad different. i know that others have made Crushing LW variants but everyone seems so concerned about adding magic damage to already super strong weapons i.e. DBS, GA, GS. and in reality it just doesn't always cut it. So I decided to make something that's not just "Oh let's just slap LW on my weapon and go at it" but something that doesn't just rely on LW but is versatile and very easy to change according to ones desires.
So tell me what you think. I haven't been able to test it yet as I've been busy with, well life. But I would like to hear some feed back ^^
