    What's wrong wtih my setup?

    I'll use a recent example. Fought someone with the Iaito and similar Paladin armor. They could flip. But I could barely hit her, but she kept hitting me. Post-patch Greatswords make it difficult for me to get in,, but I'm trying. I dash in with the R1 for my regular approach.

    How's my setup and what's a good ring I can use since I can't use the DWGR anymore?

    1. I would ditch the clay after the nerf, you could try out some other str weapon instead.
    2. why isn't it 20/40 instead of 40/20 (the best would be 27/40). The clay is a quality weapon, so it gets scaling from both dex a str. But str also gets the 2h bonus (str is multiplied by 1.5 when 2h). So it would be better that way. The clay (at least before patch) is a weapon that you should 2h anyway.
    3. With that setup, i would switch the DWGR for wolfs and start mid rolling instead.

    I never saw much use for Dexterity.

    I also need a PvE setup that's like this one. O&S are destroying me at this point.

    dex is just as useful as str - both increase the damage of your weapon.
    Both have "hidden benefits though, str gets a 2h bonus, and dex makes your spells faster.

    Are you at NG or NG+ (or beyond)? Because at NG that build should destroy O+S. If you're at NG+ then you should either keep trying or summon help.

    Always keep that ptde box clicked now. Patch 1.06 applies it's effect in the exact same manner.

    But everything in patch 1.06 isn't in mugen yet. Like the nerf that the elementals weapons got.

    Current Build: http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=3504125506279641

    I just faced a guy in PvP. Has DWGR and some new dark pyromancy combustion. He busts my poise in one shot, so I can't even get to him. If I roll towards him or to his side, he just gets away or does it again, ensuring I get hit.

    Furthermore, am I rolling too much? I can't get to anyone in time before they're dodging or blocking. My point of contact relies solely on busting through their hits to counter or getting them through a roll. I've been having a horrible time at the arena 1v1 so far.
