Step 1: Learn your favorite melodic doom metal riffs.
Step 2: Find out what makes them sound good to you.
Step 3: Based on what you found out, write your own.
Step 4: ???
Step 5: Profit!

Sometimes the difference is vague. At least in the Pit; and that sometimes leaks everywhere else.

I suggest you listen to the songs with the sound you want to mimic, get tabs for them and basically deconstruct the song. Find out what musically is happening. If you do that you should see the basic elements of the style and be able to write within it.

Melodic doom metal... Is that like Candlemass and shizz?

Ha, if not a lot of people listen to it and therefore there are not a lot of tabs of it, how could you expect there to be someone who has carefully analyzed doom metal on this forum who is also willing to explain it all to you? Regardless, timeconsumer09's original post would be the correct answer for any genre. Sorry :/
i don't know why i feel so dry

If you think the pit is ANYTHING like /b/, than youve obviously never been to /b/ and are talking out your ass.
