th3albo asked: hello! i'm kinda new to dark souls pvp, looking forward to some hate to send!, i've been lurking in this tumbrl for about 6 months! great blog, funny stuff, now to the question, any suggestion for a low skill level, rage inducing build?
If you’re talking DS1, I’d suggest something around SL30, which will let you invade anywhere from the Depths to the Lord Soul areas. Pick a couple of weapons you like, make them lightning or fire, and go to town (a lot of people opt for only upgrading their weapons to +5 for low SL invasions, but it’s up to you). Bring Lloyd’s Talismans, dung pies, fire bombs. Try to make your host’s life a living hell before finally killing them.
If you’re talking DS2, there’s no easy way to get orbs until you’re fairly into the game, and even then grinding orbs in the BloodBro arena with a low SL build won’t be fun. Plus, it doesn’t matter anyway, since matchmaking is all done by Soul Memory instead of Soul Level. There are, in theory, more tools to aggravate your host (like corrosive urns to break their equipment), but I haven’t found them all that useful.
If you’re just looking for hatemail in DS2, find the Bat Staff, attune Dark Fog, and insta-poison people all day long. Maybe bring Great
Resolent Resonant Soul to really piss people off.
Edit: for some reason I read “resonant” as “resolent” and I have no idea why
