    What FanBoy said. And i don't know if that will solve the problem or if it's actually you not saving the build, but either way the links lead to a bare handed naked none edited build. Redo the builds and press save before linking them will asure that it's saved and that the links won't be too long. Unless you're trolling us which i doubt. xD

    Either way, welcome to the forums. big grin

    Edit: Heh, you edited it so i can see them now. Will make a new post with my opinions.

    The builds are okay. Priscillas dagger however, is not bad, trust me, that's not what i'm saying, but if you want the backstabs go with the bandit dagger or the new DLC dagger if you have access or if you're on console and getting it soon. If it's not for the backstabs but for the fun of it then that's understandable. Everyone has their gameplay, but with those builds chameleon and hidden body MAY(remember that i said MAY) not be all that useful, unless you know how to use them. The builds overall seem good to me. And just so you know, any build is good as long as you know how to handle it. winking

    I'd roll the caster/assassin like this

    http://tinyurl.com/9ndlbmz

    Starting as a wanderer can give you an extra spell and maximum benefit from your int at sl99. The extra slot means you can use CWM. I swapped priscillas dagger out because altough it seems like it could be good, it isn't. The range fails and the scaling isn't that great because of the low base damage.

    Ricards rapier is epic with buffs, because the buff damage is inflicted with every strike and the strong attack hits 4 times in quick succession, land it and everything dies.

    The dark hand is not a good shield really, a buckler will serve you better stability wise and it's really good for parries(and looks pretty awesome too)

    I've got the lingering dragoncrest ring to extend the duration of CMW but you could swap it for the wolf ring if you want poise instead

    Btw dude the most important thing with any build is that you enjoy using and have fun with it. Don't like rapiers, don't use them. Love the dark hand, use it dude.

    Just wanted to point out one thing. The dark hand is a pretty good shield against magic users, so it's not necessarily bad. Just wanted to point the obvious out. :|

    This is true^

    If your mostly going to parry it's okay too. I would never block more than one strike at a time with it though

    Going with the assassin theme

    http://tinyurl.com/9xkj2md

    OHKO vit gouge build. Chaos estoc gives massive bs damage, power within boosts attack by 40%, hornet ring boost bs damage by...30% now? I think its 30% after 1.06

    Poison mist can be used like a smoke screen, activate power within, rush through the smog for a lock on bs. Dead. Might have to poke them a couple times when they get up.

    When using power within you want a base pyromancy flame, no upgrades. The more upgrades, the quicker it kills you for the same damage boost.

    EDIT: I might make this for the arena lol!

    EDIT: Not sure if its true but I've read that the level of your pyromancy flame doesn't affect how much the hp drain on power within after 1.06 I'll check for myself after I actually get the patch(PSN is balls btw lol! )

    I know it's not the most viable build, but since you asked for an assassins build i had to make one based on my image of assassins. To me an assassin mainly heads for the backstabs, and parries if necessary. Poison is of course a must, and so is any strategical advantage. So if you wish to play as an assassin you'd probably end up playing less honorably. Unless, you're not up for the total RP. The wolf ring could be changed to hornet since you're not suppose to engage in close combat anyway, but yeah. Hope any of it helps.
