    Praise the Queen! A fast rolling STR build, need help!

    I know fast rolling STR builds have been done to death but i wanted to give it a shot. Since completing my Dex/Int build, i started have the itch to have my tank do fast-rolls. Let's just say it's a hybrid between my favorite builds.

    The set-up will stay mostly unchanged since i wanted to show skin and Gough's leggings works wonderfully. Any idea how to make her look more princess-like while still retaining the looks of a fighter? The helmet might switch to Pharis' hat or the Hollow Soldier helmet.

    Weapon-wise, i will swap to the Murakumo or Claymore depending on the situation, or maybe even the Halberd. Suggestions, anyone? bounce

    EDIT: This build is already at SL 52. With 14 Vit, 10 Att, 40 End, 27 Str and 14 Dex.

    http://mmdks.com/ecd? menu swap the mura whenever you feel like you need to.

    Why the bow and Combustion? Is the Falchion not good for the build? I though it would be a good surprise.

    you can menu swap everything if you keep your menu in order, the bow is for chip damage from either arrows or poison arrows. its also really good for baiting backstabs and countering them also good for that last hit which can be a pain since people turtle once theyre about to die.

    i would use the handaxe instead of the falchion- more damage, faster, lighter and you dont need 14 dex then.

    You raised the Dex too much, you're best off with a Murakumo, but I don't consider curved greatswords Str weapons. This is how a basic pure Str fast roller will look like at SL 100.

    http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=142710688601280094

    As you can see it's pretty weak since the DGA is so heavy, it doesn't let you equip Wolf + FAP. The result is either low HP (1500) and medium poise or high HP (1800) very low poise. Also this build could menu swap a chaos Pike if your opponent gets too dodgy. It could also ditch the shield and equip a crystal Light Crossbow in the offhand which is very effective.

    i couldnt help myself sorry.


    restricting yorself to 2H'ing the weapon frees up heps of strength and allows you to fast roll with 53 poise and avor 1700 HP.

    LOL look how much End you need to make a decent fast roll Str build.

    http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=470511048621476589

    If you're aiming for a very heavy weapon then I would go medium roll.

    http://mmdks.com/eea This will raise the damage output and decrease the end required. Unfortunately you must fight 2 handing the weapon. You will also have about 40 less defense. (Requires only 43 end without Shotel.) http://mmdks.com/ee9 I recomend this if you don't want to change your clothes.

    http://mmdks.com/eec This is the ultimate light strength character. http://mmdks.com/eef You can use the Zweihander if you replace FaP with Havel Ring

    Also, Falchon and Shotel have same attack and weight.

    This is what I'd be more inclined to do to have a fast roll STR build. It's actually quite similar to the build I'm making at the moment:

    http://mmdks.com/eez

    Obvs the sack can be changed out, but I love using it so I've just popped it on here. happy

    EDIT: You've also got a decent amount of poise on the build without wolf ring, so it allows you to switch your second ring around as you see fit. Cloranthy could also be good, and Red Tearstone you would menu swap to when your HP is low. Hand Axe is also perfect against the lower poise builds when 2h'ded, spesh if they're BS fishing.

    this is my take on it... yes i know its smoughs armor and giants does everything smoughs does for less weight, but being a fatty is better than wearing giants with a mask

    T_T You guys missed the point. 'PRINCESS' She has to look adorable. At the moment, this toon looks like Dora the Explorer. -_-"

    But still great suggestions though. I upped my Dex to 14 because i wanted to use the Longbow. My builds are mostly aimed for both PvE and PvP. I'm probably screwed because of the Dex but too late to change it now. I honestly want to stay the hell away from Havel's ring because there's no creativeity in it. (no offense, it just feels that way to me.)

    My main tank already abuses so much Heavy weapon so i want to step away from that with this build. It's a hybrid, remember?
    I'm using medium heavy weapons like the Reinforced Club, Mace, Large Club and many others. I've been playing with the Blacksmith's Giant Hammer and i'm loving it! The Handaxe i could use it in my off-hand once PW runs out. I most likely be using the Reinforced Club as my secondary weapon for the bleed and infinite stunlock. :bom:

    Also, 13 poise without the Wolf's ring is umm...bad? I'll switch it out for the RTS when neccessary, i guess. With blossoms, i won;t really need the Cloranthy Ring since i also have the Grass Crest Shield.

    I think you should raise the Dex to 20 and use the BK weapons and Gough's Bow.
