Classic (Non Trans) SVD Knight - Question
« on: Nov 13, 2016, 09:10 PM »
Hey guys!

I've just started a low rate classic server (non-trans) and I really want to play as an SVD knight. I've played SVD LK's before with high damage bowling bash. What I was wondering was:

Can a Knight be SVD tank Spear/Shield with bowling bash or is there not enough skill points to spend?

My main priority with my build is to tank above all else so I won't be totally sad if I can't use bowling bash in pvp. As far as I'm aware, Bash and Pierce are also great damage dealers in 1v1 pvp? Anyone who has more experience in classic servers please let me know what you normally build, even outside of SVD builds (Two handed swords etc.) I am really opened minded  /ok

Things to note:
- I want to prioritize being tank and useful in WoE. I am not fussed if I cannot deal much damage if it means I am extremely useful in other aspects.
- If I can deal a lot more damage but sacrifice a bit of tankness I am ok with that too.

Thanks in advance

If you want BB build use Sword / 2h Sword. Spear aspd sux so even with a little higher damage per BB you deal lower DPS..

Getting BB means you only able to get Pierce 10 at most. BB 10 + Cavalier mastery 5 = 31 skill point , 18 sp left.

Bowling Bash out damage Bash and Pierce by miles if you can get consistent 2x hit (and its auto 2x hit on WoE)

Classic WoE BB build

Even with the lower aspd spear gives, BB is actually faster with a spear than sword (at least on a peco)

The only instance spear might be better than sword for BBing is when you choose KvM weapon (G.spear have higher demi human multiplier than G.flam). That higher multiplier offset aspd advantage from sword. Some people choose to deal higher burst damage even on slower aspd.

Thanks for your input guys. I think I'll go 1-handed Sword BB. Seems the most fun for PVP. I get to do some decent damage while staying tank, I like how that sounds  /heh
