    Might as well try using this. Perhaps it will work better than creating another "Help me with my build" topic.

    I have a SL 100 build for Arena, but I don't go there anymore, because I can't stomach it's waiting times. Sometimes I use it for co-op and PvP.

    I really started to like using Faith with Dex weapons and thought that I would make something like this.
    A Dex build with Faith buffs, but with higher Vit and End.

    But, I have to admit that I am tired of all the rushing through the game and hours of farming to make the build. I'm in the phase, where I would actually use a trainer, or BB glitch to do it for me.
    And then I noticed that I could actually use the first build to create the desired one one.

    The question is.

    Is it a good idea to level up my SL 100 to make a SL 125, or should I just stay at SL 100?

    I need just a quick advice on weapon - running 40 Vit/End/Dex build, which leaves me no space to go for Int/Faith for weapon enchantments. What weapon would you recommend for this? I've been thinking Chaos Blade but not entirely sure yet. Other stuff I've been considering was Painting Guardian sword +15 or Uchigatana +15...

    Ok this is my current Darkwraith build Link, minus the Steal ring, dragon crest now. This setup has been working pretty well. I was going after the Crown of Dusk to really complete it but kind of messed up, explanation here. Anyway I had been considering a MLGS build for a couple of days. I was thinking 40/40/40 Vit/End/Int. Those stats would put me at SL99. Now the real question is should I go that route? Should I just leave it as is? If I do, should I stop at 99 or should I go up to 120, and if 120 what else should I put stuff into?

    Since I've been mostly doing Dex oriented buids so far, I feel like changing it up a bit.

    Desired Soul Level: 100 or 120
    Str or Dex: Str
    Favor Dmg, Vit, or End: Balance
    Here are my random requirements: I want this to be a Mid rolling toon, with A shield (Medium or Greatshield), but not the Eagle Shield. For a weapon I want something that feels like a 2-hander (yeah, it could be Zweihander as well... get it? .. nevermind.). Weapons I don't want include: Great Club, Large Club, Demon's Great Machete and BK weapons.
    Faith/Int? Neither, Pyro if anything

    SL 100, Zwei. http://mmdks.com/u7c
    Greatsword. http://mmdks.com/u7d

    Simple, easy to use, have a ring to spare, great defense, tank-style poise. Zwei is one of the best strength weapons. If you want the greatsword (awesome R2 and even better if you have the Leo ring)

    SL 120, Zwei. http://mmdks.com/u7d
    Great Sword. http://mmdks.com/u7g

    Same as above, but packs a SLB buff for insane damage. Still tank poise. Still has a ring slow available.

    SL 100, Reinforced Club. http://mmdks.com/u7i
    SL 120, Reinforced Club. http://mmdks.com/u7j

    Reinforced Club has infinite stunlock and bleed. It is an awesome weapon. You could also Addin the reinforced club to the Zwe/Greatsword build and adjust your armor weight to fit.

    It has recently come to my attention that, technically, Zwei and GS are "quality" weapons (scale with both Str and Dex). Well, I don't give a hoot, silly

    They are heavy, slow, require a lot of STRENGTH to wield, and hit like a semi. That is good enough for me to call them Strength weapons.

    At least I got the reinforced club correct (a true strength weapon), right? Praise the Sun

    Desired Soul Level: 100
    Str or Dex: Str
    Favor Dmg, Vit, or End: Vit
    How you will use the build: Arena only, fast/mid roll
    Other info you find useful: I love Greatswords, but if you know a weapon that fit better, you can use to create this build, no problem.
    Faith/Int? None, i want to be a pure warrior.

    Thank you!

    Reinforced club, fast roll: http://mmdks.com/vf0
    Reinforced club, medium roll: http://mmdks.com/vf1

    Reinforced club is an awesome weapon. It is powerful, infinite stunlock, and bleed.

    Large club, fast roll: http://mmdks.com/vf3
    Large club, medium roll: http://mmdks.com/vf4

    Large club is powerful, has a great moveset, an unparryable 2H roll R1 (so, don't recommend medium roll), and poison.

    Great Hammer fast roll: http://mmdks.com/vf6
    Great Hammer medium roll: http://mmdks.com/vf6

    Another powerful weapon that has a great stunlock.

    Note, the build stats are the same. The armor is different. You have 1900 vitality. You have room for a ring of your choice (look at some of the poise and imagine it with the Wolf's Ring).

    Ok I think I have finalized what I want now with this character. I have been using most of the setup I have listed and it seems to be working ok for me. Link to build.

    I've got this Int build that I'm unsure whether I've screwed up. It's currently level 52, and I'm not entirely sure where to go with it. I'd rather not re-roll since it's maybe the best toon I've made in the character creator, but I suppose I'll get over it if it's not redeemable. I'd love advice on gear, spells, and stats - feel free to take it wherever you think makes sense. Thanks!

    Anyway, here's what I know:

    Desired Soul Level: 100-120
    Str or Dex: ???
    Favor: Dmg I suppose, though I could be convinced of something else.
    How you will use the build: ???
    Other info you find useful: Fast roll if possible. I intend to use magic - though I could also make it focus on the mlgs. So it could be a melee int build as well.
    Faith/Int: Int

    http://mmdks.com/wen

    I hope the link works, I've never tried to post one before. In case it doesn't, here are my current stats:

    SL: 52

    Vit: 12
    Att: 16
    End: 11
    Str: 16
    Dex: 20
    Res: 8
    Int: 40
    Fth: 8


    edit: eek, so that link is ugly. how do people make it all nice and pretty?

    Need some feedback on my Pyro build: http://mmdks.com/wu0

    Mostly for role-playing purposes, that's why the armor/weapon combo, just want to know if it's good enough or can be improved. Level cap: 100.

    (My plan is using Ascended Flame for regular castings and the unupgraded one for Power Within. My theory is obtaining my starter one and to get the other one I'm gonna store the first one in Bottomless box and rescue the pyro in Depths ...will it work?)

    Outdated reply, but if you have a pyro flame, and save Laurentius, go to Firelink. Drop your flame and talk to him to get an unupgraded one free. Then pick up your upgraded one again.

    Hey, I have had a idea for a lifehunt build but it has never made it too anor londo...

    A build mostly based around DEX and INT, I also want fast roll while having at least 15 poise, using the Lifehunt scythe without bloodshield, i want to use the bloodbite ring. 2 attunement slots will be fine.

    Good luck!

    I'm kind of a newcomer to PvP in Dark Souls and I was hoping someone could help me out with a PvP build, I'm not too keen on all the ins and outs.

    Desired Soul level: Idk, 120?
    Str or Dex: I don't really know, any suggestions?
    Favor Dmg, Vit, or End: Damage I would say
    Here are my random requirements: I'm not really sure but I like doing good damage, and stunlocking opponents. I'm not very good at backstabbing. I like to be mobile, but I don't need to flip everywhere, just not fatrolling lol. As for magic, I'm not really sure how they function in PvP
    Thanks in advance

    The latest patch made it so an ascended flame won't drain your health faster with PW. But, go swag and have both ascended flames.

    The main problems I see are endurance and the sheer number of pyros.

    You probably don't need endurance that high. Put some into dex to increase your spell speed. If you are mainly going to use pyro, drop your endurance to 20, and bump your dex to 38. Consider having a +15 Scythe. It should be more powerful in actual PvP than an elemental. You can't look at the weapon's AR. Elementals are usually weak since their damage is split among 2 different resistances.

    Having that many different pyros will be a challenge to use effectively in PvP. Maybe drop a few out Chaos Storm and put the remaining points into Dex (to 40), endurance, and maybe a touch of vitality.

    Maybe something like this: http://mmdks.com/yfm

    @ Lordvega: That is pretty vague. Check out this thread to help you with good weapons in PvP. Then try them out and see what you like:

    Let me see if I can narrow it down
    Strength/Dex: Whichever is more versatile
    Favor: Damage
    Magic: Pyromancy
    Additional Notes: I like to be mobile but I don't need to ninja flip and I like to be able to push out damage. I am not good at backstabbing and I play with keyboard and mouse so its hard to play without lock-on. I don't need the most defensive armor but I'd rather not be made of paper.
    Hope this helps

    Looking for some suggestions on what to do to finish a dex/pyro in terms of where to put those last 6 stat points for SL 120. The armor I don't really care much about. This one will probably end up being a darkwraith. I usually use the FaP, but maybe not this time to free up both slots to experiment.

    Was thinking of using something like this https://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=381395122709778467 I want to stay away from Buff builds and the Claymore(Tho I can use it if I wanted to) and that's not the armor I would like to use just threw in pieces cause I am undecided in that category. Also the second ring is empty cause I don't know what ring to put there as well.
