This might be useful as a crutch for someone who wants to wear a specific set of gear exclusively but might need the extra non physical defense. (Specific enemy, boss, etc). As someone whos building a character that focuses on skill and bloodtinge the idea of a Loch/ Reiterpallasch weapon set seems entertaining. A auxiliary tank of sorts since you could focus on ranged targets with little draw back from their counter. Im unaware of the Reiterpallaschs prowess however as I've only gotten so far.
You pleb teach me how to sleigh on my sled
It's almost Christmas
in a time where you cannot escape a phys attack, the plank shield is clutch
living failures have been giving me a hard time, maybe I should try out this weapon in that fight.
That's the reason I did it. Without the shield, it's a nightmare trying to survive the meteor storm attack
Could I recommend gauging which direction the meteor attack is coming from and then using the tree as cover? Also keep in mind that it comes from the same direction every time
^ It's really not though. If u hide behind the tree in the center or building opposite of where u enter, u can avoid it completely. Git Gud scrub
Someone should punch you in your jaw and break it for trying to pull that get gud remark. You bandwagon **** riding *** cant even come up with your own insults.
in certain situations if you roll or quickstep you may lose momentum so its better to just shield yourself in order to do more damage
Trying to utilize this for Loran Darkbeast Paarl fight since he spams that bolt AoE attack like it's his only option. Better than any alternative since if you're too close there's no way to escape
Well timed rolls.
you can roll right through the AOE attack, which allows you to completely avoid damage.
With 25 VIT you can survive any attack from the defiled watchdog with this. Tanking obviously isn't option A, but it'll keep you from dying in one hit and let you heal up.
25 Vit hardly tells anything since dmg reduction calculates your armor and level, too...
given the 70% damage reduction against everything except physical, has anyone tried using this for Laurence's boss fight?
Since Laurence is basically full physical damage until the end (and even then mostly physical) I would presume it wouldn't be very effective even when he spews lava.
I actually did, after shooting him in the head with a firearm and doing a visceral attack, I switched to the loch shield until he eventually healed himself, then I switched back to my firearm and got another visceral, then back to loch shield etc...
Always prioritise dodging, but equip it since you aren't losing anything anyway, It's not very effective though
