    Of course Uchi and Estoc would be good options, those are both A-tier weapons in the meta game. Can't go wrong really with either.

    Estoc is pretty underwhelming in PvE but it's fantastic in PvP - stick with it.

    As for which you should make your Divine weapon, to me, it's a no-brainer. Make the Estoc Divine and bring the Uchi up to +15, buffed katanas with their beastly attack speeds are hella powerful.

    Preferably Dex
    Favour: Vit, with adequate dmg to kill in 4-5 hits.
    Fast rolls, good poise
    Maybe faith?

    wanted to make a build involving the east woodgrain ring. so here is my attempt happy http://mmdks.com/1gtz

    any advice is welcome. i was thinking of maybe leveling up INT for CMW, but figured id be swapping from the claw to the uchi too much... and before anyone says it....i would use the iato, but shiva sells the uchi and claw for infinite supply to upgrade to crystal.

    The East Wood Grain Ring's use depends on how long you go without repairing your weapon, more than the base durability of it. I think though that, like you are already doing, get the most use out of it by using a katana. But in combination with the Dragon Tooth, you will pretty much never have to repair your weapon.

    Desired Soul Level:100
    Str or Dex:Dex
    Favor Dmg, Vit, or End:Dmg, End
    How you will use the build: The idea is a stick and move caster, with thorns and tracer as "oh **** buttons". Dark Hand for other casters/ humanity theft if I get the opportunity.
    Other info you find useful:
    Faith/Int: Int, Obv silly

    Note, the Tin Banishment Catalyst is there because it has a dex scaling which benefits the "dark spells" and beatrice's catalyst only gives 18 more points of magadjust at that int anyways, so I feel like it's the better option.

    If you can think of anything that might help me improve this I'd appreciate it. It's unorthodox but I really like the idea of it. Haven't had a chance to playtest it yet though. silly

    https://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=359284704462463726

    EDIT: I can also take end to 38 to put strength at 12, which would give me access to a few of the 100% phys shields. (Which at the least would help with getting through the game proper, and give me some options. silly)

    I'd be interested to hear what you had to say, at least. happy Also, just realized I got it down back to SL99... that's fine, just didn't realize I actually had the wiggle room for it. lol

    Desired Soul Level:120 or 150 or anything good for PvP
    Str or Dex:Dex
    Favor Dmg, Vit, or End: I want to be able to survive and deal damage.
    How you will use the build: I want to use magic as my main offensive damage dealer as well with pyromancy. I want enough poise that if I get hit by big swords, my spells will still continue to go through, so around 80+.
    Other info you find useful: I at least want dark orb black flame, dark beads as my magic. And beatrice catalyst for looks.
    Faith/Int: Int,

    I would be very concerned about mid rolling with no shield and very low magic defense. I think you would have problems using the painting guardian sword for some of the same reasons. You're either going to get out-damaged trading blows (sometimes stun-locked first too, even with 93 poise), or out-maneuvered by a fast rolling opponent. Not being mobile will either leave you slashing at air, getting out-damaged, roll-stabbed or parried. You could use Velka's rapier with your present stats. I would consider ditching the dusk crown as well. The crown of the dark sun would improve your magic defense by 80 and still give a 10% damage increase to all casts.

    Desired Soul Level: 120
    Str or Dex: Str
    Favr Dmg, Vit or End: Vit
    How will you use the build: A big strong mid-rolling tank with High faith that I can use for Jolly CoOperation and Darkmooning. I intend to use big Strength based weapons and divine+occult dex weapons such as the Shotel or the Katanas. I only want the minimun dex required for such weapons.
    Faith/Int: Faith

    If you wanted to use Uchi and your big weapon at the same time, Also the Greatclub is in there because it is heavier than the Zwei.

    http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=184588628314676132
    If you dont want to use the uchi and your big weapon at the same time.
    Dex has been boosted because it adds a larger buff to the weapon when it is twohanded than strength does after str 35

    http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=315718459410766481
    Weapons at the same time but with a medium shield

    http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=423234630536989135
    Medium shield only 1 weapon on at a time
    Black iron can be used instead of cleric armor due to the uchi not being used.

    Hello, sir. I am currently working on a pseudo-Ornstein build utilizing his unique items. I have two different versions in mind.

    Version 1: http://mmdks.com/1kxg
    This version reaps the benefit of a relatively higher AR than the other and the potential for very high counter damage, but suffers from only being able to mid roll. I have had a lot of success fighting with this build in the PC township.

    Version 2: http://mmdks.com/1kxc
    This version is more mobile, and able to fast roll. This comes at the expense of having to wear Havel's Ring, rather than the Leo Ring. It also costs the Dragonslayer Spear close to 50 AR. The high END allows independence from green blossoms.

    NOTE - I am fully aware that neither the Dragonslayer Spear or my choice of armor are optimal, but, well, slay them with style as they say.

    I am just curious what suggestions you might have to further improve on this design.

    Hmm I'm not too good at making builds but I gave this a shot and here's what I came up with cheers
    Build: http://mmdks.com/1ldk
    Note: I tried making the character look somewhat cool tongue So the defense and poise probably can be 100 times better.

    Desired Soul Level: 125
    Str or Dex: Dex
    Favor Dmg, Vit, or End: Not sure
    How you will use the build: Fast paced fights with Estoc/Ricards
    Other info you find useful: I want to be able to use DWGR, in combination with some other ring like Leo/Hornet.
    Faith/Int? Faith (30, for using WoTG/Darkmoon Blade/GMB)

    I'm currently at SL 89 and have no idea how to properly continue building this. I'm having a massive problem in finding armor that I think suits my character and keeps the equip load sub 25% without RoFap/Havels. So far the only combinations that have met these requirements seem to have low to zero poise - would you suggest to still go for them and stock up on Vit to make up for the low armor stats?
    Would it be wiser to improve END to 42 or to remove the Black Iron Gauntlets altogether to meet sub 25% earlier?

    Version 2 is better choice. I dont like WoG is Replish is not = to Elizabeths so it is a waste too if you are on Xbox
