    As I am a huge fan of trying new things. I've been wondering how would a full str gs would work at level 78.
    Sure having a lot of defense and AD would keep bosses from doing too much damage and if I get enough food/pot I'd be able to survive it right?
    I want to try this build purely for fun and bosses

    You will die fighting Serbetus. And it will be hard at the beginning as you don't have that much defense and get a lot of damage. Boss quests will be hard either before you get Absolute Defense on 5 at least.

    Its perfect build for gs, for some bosses you need at least some HP from cs/fusion/seals

    Or you try my build: full str until reach 200 points for big damage (around lvl 60) and sea + next points into con for some more hp for harder bossfights

    For serbetus you dont will have problems with 5/6 ad and Alchemists mp pills

    Important skills: all passive defense and attack skills. I dont have any active skill (in higher Levels you can use shield bash)

    So you recommend me trying it? Would I be able to solo any boss with priest buff?

    I would recommend a balanced build and higher upgrade of the weapon. Then you have enough attack force and hp.

    how did full str worked out for u? were u able to solo most bosses?
    which build did you have most success on ?
    is it even worth maxing 1h sword passive when it only gives 200 striking power

    Only Problem for full str gs should be dots of Bosses (poison,fire,bleeding), so you are definitily able to tank bosses with stuns/big dmg skills and need many potions for the other. I tried all bosses with 78 gs full str/defense and attack skills maxed and around 7500 defense (high coat or priest buffs) and except Wizard i was able to kill all of them, brid/welkey needed some cs potions and juan/other big resistance bosses need lots of time xD

    The best way of leveling your char is not to stick strictly on any given build. Just keep those in mind but skill as you may see the need.
    If you notice of having too little HP put more con. If you lack in attacking force put some more points onto str.
    Defense skills are to max, all others at your needs and preferences.

    im planning on going full str but im not sure if maxing the 1h skill is worth due to it giving only 200dmg.
    also is cross edge worth maxing as it gives 50% slow attack speed.

    cross edge is pretty strong. the 1h skill doesnt. but honestly dont go full str. you cant solo brid with full str.

    I don't remember because this skill isn't very usefull. It's consuming much MP and gives you only a little HP. As GS usually have 20k oder more HP there is no great benefit in gaining ~600-700 HP at max level.

    well if im going full str there would be since id have around 5k hp. plus with the str id be getting around 1.3k hp back. Depending on the cooldown it could be a good skill to have as it can save u a few times

    So i've been leveling my GS and its quite easy when its full str. My question is should I max 1h skill + berzeker as it would give more attack damage ? or should i just leave and make storm edge instead ? im not going with no 2h weapon skill so I have a few points to spend. TBH i think storm edge would be pretty good max specially with full str and a good 1h, but im not sure,
