    Now you can swap between RoFaP, and Red Tearstone. I just want to hear your opinions on this one.

    Oh and can someone suggest me Heavy(FAT-Mid) Roll STR build using BK Weapons, or heavy weapons in general as well as Greatshields. I have very little experience building a tank

    Melee glass cannons are not very viable. Most of the time you'll be getting hit. The best melee weapon for a glass cannon is a buffed spear.

    This how I would do a BK weapons tank:

    Glass cannons are usually most effective using ranged attacks to weaken an enemy first before then going in for the kill on a more defensive (and hence less likely to hurt you) opponent.

    Obviously there's stuff like power within, buffs and heavy weapons that can make you oneshot pretty much anything (almost like your build, but with more macho and badass weaponry), but that will be a challenge to use.

    I'd advise for a glass cannon you'll wanna be using a sorcerer so you have some decent ranged attacks as well as your buffed main weapon.

    I don't think 700 Vitality, 0 poise, and a Claymore is viable, no.

    Being below 25% equipment load is never good for any reason...ever. That build could wear armor.

    The only way to justify being completely naked is if there is an advantage, which in this case there isnt one.

    ***EDIT*** rather being between 0% and 23-24% equipment load.

    Let's put it this way. How many hits will you kill your opponent in, and how many hits will your opponent kill you in? If they're equal, then your glass cannon comes down to player skill and weapon matchups.
