    My favorite build! Improvements needed!

    I have no idea how many people i've murdered with this build. It is by far my most successful build and also the most fun since i look like a retarded scrub with doing so~

    This thing lures in turtles and wrecks them with my hidden Shotel after poking them with my spear. The G. Scythe is used to stop backstabbers and it's worked out most of the time. My combust is only for parry spammers cuz you still take damage even if you parry my combustion. When i get low on hp, many of them get greedy and annihilated by the RTS pokes~

    So on that note, i would like some fixes or improvements to this build. I wanna make it an even more absurd killing machine! This thing's weakness is sorcery spammers. =(

    EDIT: Since i'm more of an all-rounder cuz i have no favorite weapon, this build feels right for me. I have somethnig for any given situation apart from sorceries. They destroy my Crest Shield. 😢

    I'd replace GC with BF, so that they take more Stamina damage on failed parry, which can, and mostly will, do a guard break and you can then attack them for extra damage. BF is also awesome to stagger all toons with less than 60 Poise and most roll a 53-54 Poise.

    Casters will be always your nightmare. You either have to block them (Havel's, or Stone Greatshields), negate them (GMB, VoS), or evade them (Fast Roll), at least in my experience and none of it is foolproof.

    I used both GC and BF together before but i've never noticed any differecne apart from the higher damage of my GC. But i'll play with BF some more. I can dodge them just fine with mid-roll but when they spam and i have no shield and stamina, i get destroyed. The only way for me to incorporate GMB is if i increase my SL even further. If i'm a host, do i have to stick to the 120 standards or can i go as high as i can?

    You can change your gear to get fast roll, you can then evade even tryhard spammers.

    BF does less HP damage, but more Stamina and Poise damage. It's great to stop fast, low Poise builds and deal with turtles.

    As popular as the fast roll is, i love the mid roll and it's extremely viable plus i have better armor choices! As you've said, the Hollow waistcloth is getting really redundant. And i'll need the poise too in order to successfully pull most of my tactics off. I'm thinking of remaking this build and using the GMB.

    Nothing against Mid Roll, but I'm not sure if you can evade spell spammers with it. That's why I usggested Fast Roll.

    I think Mid Roll + Crest Shield should be able to handle more, or less anything.

    No worries, i guess one of the reasons my shields fail me is the fact that i never upgrade them. >_<

    The combo is freaking evil. The spear is mainly used for luring into BS fishing or turtling which will be punished either way with my G. Scythe and Shotel. Why 93?

    Here's a new one i've made. Not sure what stats to invest in. I could go for a fat roll version but spammers are gonna kill me.

    it is impossible to beat a fast rolling spear user who plays a certain style, unless it is spear vs spear.

    Since you're mid rolling you can tank 3 curved sword/spear/katana hits without worrying about rolling out.

    Is there an armor combination that gives me 93 poise while wearing my Testy crown and the RTS? Pretty sure there isn't though. =(
