    Add the last 6 points to End and equip a heater shield. Otherwise, it looks solid.

    I'm basically left with three options, and two of them don't really make sense.

    1. Put 6 into endurance and have a shield, but not be able to 1-hand my weapon.
    2. Put 6 into strength and be able to one-hand my weapon, but have no shield anyway.
    3. It doesn't matter, because I can only either one-hand it or have a shield. So figure out if I want extra vit or att or something later.

    I chose 3, because the other 2 are kind of just counter-productive. So unless there's a way I can optimize my armor better while still remaining 53 poise and fully black, I don't think I can possibly 1-hand and have a shield.

    Shoot. Missed the 2H only aspect. I thought is looked a bit light.

    Put them so you can 1H your OGS and then use the dark hand as a shield.

    But the dark hand is really bad /: Idek if it's worth the shield at that point.

    What is your preferred style to play? Are you more defensive? Analytical and patient? Aggresive?

    If you like to parry, then at least the Dark Hand will give you partial damage reduction on a partial parry. Its defenses really aren't that bad, stability aside. Even if you don't like the Dark Hand, the OGS will probably block okay while two-handed also.

    With a greatsword, I'll usually wait for my opponent to approach. Then when they come in I'll time it to where I can hit them with a 2-handed normal. So either I'd do w/out shield: stunlock, backstab, into r2. W/ shield would be a different story because I'd go for the parry if they're trying a basic melee strategy, then r2 from there.

    If you'd feel comfortable using the Dark Hand then go for that. It's always nice to have the option to switch between 1h and 2h. And by comfortable, I just mean parrying with it - I agree that using the Dark Hand as a traditional shield = not good. Setup parries are really difficult to get with it but it is possible to learn eventually

    If not, then I'd suggest going with the third choice you listed.

    Thanks, I'll go with the third. I just hope I don't end up getting raped without a shield.

    You can always parry with your hands. Just requires training and timing. But even if you can't one hand your weapon, parry the dude, and quicly switch to two handed to land the riposte.
