Silen7RH's Strength/Hex Build


A SL150 meta build that is centered around the effective use of the Crypt Blacksword and Sacred Chime Hammer.

Note that the below stats for VGR, VIT and ADP can be adjusted to suit the player’s preferences. The current setup achieves 1726 HP (1984 HP with Life Ring +3), 72.2 equip load and 97 agility. If the player has no intention of using the Sacred Chime Hammer then DEX can be taken down to 10.

In terms of optimization, at the cost of additional investment into VIT (as well as possible Fashion Souls related issues) 21 levels can be freed up by raising DEX one level and equipping the King’s Crown, Flower Skirt and Vessel Shield. Be advised, however, that this will result in a mandatory equip burden of 12.5 units.

20 STR vs. 40 STR
Lowering STR to 20 should only be considered if you never plan on using the Sacred Chime Hammer due the weapon’s borderline unviable 2H R2. Even then, losing out the Crypt Blacksword’s devastating 1H R1>R1 should not be taken lightly.

Great Magic Barrier? No problem!
If your opponent casts GMB do not fret. While your weapons will (obviously) not hit as hard until their GMB wears off, you’ll still be able to do plenty of damage. The buffed Dark Crypt Blacksword’s 1H R1 alone will hit for 450-650 depending on your opponent’s armor.
