    Hey guys!

    First of all, Merry X-mas! winking


    I recently started considering running a build strictly for the new DLC arena.

    What do you think about:

    SL 100 Sorcerer

    Vit: 39
    Att: 16
    End: 32
    Str: 14
    Dex: 30
    Res: -
    Int: 32
    Fai: -

    R1: Grass Crest Shield
    R2: Sorcerer's Catalyst
    L1: Uchigatana
    L2: Balder Side Sword

    Armor:
    Crown of Dusk
    Dingy Robe
    Dingy Gloves
    Eastern Leggings

    Rings:
    Ring of Favor and Protection
    Wolf Ring

    Spells:
    Pursuers
    Dark Bead
    Crystal Magic Weapon


    I would be grateful for any feedback happy

    Cheers! happy

    Not a real fan of Persuers in the Arena, it takes 2 slots and it's pretty easy to run into terrain in there....

    Also I would advise in general to learn to menu swap, it'll save you weight allowing for TCC and better poise...I'd maybe do something like this... http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=450521522808564468

    pretty much the same, exact same stats just 2 bead 2 CMW because TCC, also check out that sweet poise armor set up. Just keep the BSS in the menu and swap it on when you want/need it.

    Thanks for the tips on armour set, I'll try to learn menu swap as well...

    And how do you assess the build itself? guess it's not very original, but hope it'd work decent...

    BTW, is 30 dex enough to feel the difference in the cast time?

    Cheers!

    faith is gonna be better for buffing your weapons.
    ints got better scaling weapons.

    @ Rifter7

    Can you recommend any good dex/faith variant? to be honest never ran a faith character, don't know what should be implied...

    kat, falchion or great scythe
    30 or 50 faith
    a stack of wotg, sunlight/darkmoon blade
    and if you want, a heal, magic barrier or some pyros in place of a shield.
    you could use a darkmoon talisman and bring int up to 16 for dark bead too.
    ps if you're worried about losing your shield having a pyro flame in your hand is a pretty huge deterrent in general. u can always pull off one of the cats to parry or put the flame in ure right hand if u want too.

    i edited my post but a bunch of stuff dissapeared so whatever. theres the basics, i lost my train of thought.

    I would suggest taking ten points out of faith and putting them into dexterity in order to increase your base attack power.
    Consider something like this: http://mmdks.com/krt
    PS. You can also use the URL button above the text box to insert hyperlinks or on the character creator, click minify to create a smaller link.

    this is the faith build im using.

    your armors better, i just think it looks fuggly.

    and this is what my prepatch faith build looked like.

    you don't need as much damage to take a player out anymore, i find.
