I finally made a dexterity character that I can actually play. I'm wondering what lightweight armor do you guys consider to be the best for PvP? I know everyone always wears the shadow armor, but is it really good, or just popular because it is 'ninja armor'. I notice that it has high stats for one of the damage stats, like slash or something. I was going to go and pick up the other Asian armor, the medium one, because I know that has good slash stats as well.
What weapon do you recommend? Right now the only katana I have is the Iatho (I think thats how you spell it). I can go kill that merchant for the uchigana (again, spelling?). I have a lot of strength stat - its at 32 - and dexterity - at 20. I built this character because I was thinking of using the Server to get a little health buff in PvP. Sort of regretting it now because the weapon doesn't really do much damage.
Should I start over and put more stats into dexterity and forget about using the server? Does anyone use the server and can vouch for it? I also would use the small tower shield too. That way I can be mobile and high hitting with high defense. The only problem with my character is it doesn't have much health.
I assume that the core idea of PvP is to upgrade your items and not your level so you can have a slight upper hand.
