    The Demi-God
    http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=2068106458708783

    or

    Stabby The Clown
    http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=3647635965107780

    the one thing im not sure of is that i dont think you can enchant bandits knife and i would use parying dagger over target shield.

    oh and use dark tracer +5over bandits knife (ithas higher crit and power attack posions)
    if yo do lose all your int if you use tracer and spread that out however you like

    ps its prob not a 1 hit ko cus i dont one hit ko and i darkr=tracered with 50 dex and no 1 iht ko


    and its notthe ohko that i liked it was the jumping around stabbing things part

    I vote for Stabby. Demi-God = BS fodder.

    Power within iun the arena is useless they will turtle and let you die and then win. And if you kill them once, they will turtle and get a draw.

    Unless you save power within for the final minute warning as a last attempt to comeback if you are down.

    I'm for the demi-god, it's tough, but the wins that you get from it will be deserved. Given you're slow walking anyway, you might want to try the iron flesh pyro, though it'd end up looking like Rosie's truck pc. Bses aren't that much more of a problem if your first instinct is to kick rather than roll away, and counter bses are still possible.

    The clown...c'mon, there isn't much interesting about one shotting an opponent, those matches will turn into bouts of bs fishing when people realize what they're up against. And wouldn't cmw be a better buff than power within?

    The reason that the one shot works is because I'm using Crystal Magic Weapon, Power Within, and Hornet Ring simultaneously.

    I do agree that I don't really see myself getting BS'ed too much with the Demi-God because I learned how to play super heavy builds a while back. When they try to go for the backstab I just unlock and swing in their immediate direction with the BKGA. When they back off I switch over to the halberd again.

    Just be careful they don't roll BS you then. That'll work great for a pivot BS, not as well for a roll BS.

    How hard would you be hitting with an OoCat and CMW? I'm doing a Washpole/GMW at the moment, but if CMW hits like for like 50 extra at least, I'll drop points out of dex to make up the int cost.

    Well, if you REALLY wanna get a streak going neither. It sucks, but it really is almost mandatory that you set aside enough stat points for at least 12 faith and 1 cast of heal. But, i guess i would also go with Stabby. Most likely to get 2 wins in a row and take a lead without taking too much damage. If you don't get 2 wins right away though it will be hard to catch up(which is why the timed aspect of the arena sucks)
