    Not sure how I ended up in this thread... but it made me want to make a Str/ Int build!

    http://mmdks.com/1823

    The Good:

    - Manus Catalyst & Dark Magic, obviously!
    - Mace because it has surprisingly good scaling, and I just realized strike damage is really good against heavy armors


    The Bad:

    - No Bellowing Dragoncrest Ring (but might be overkill anyway, with Dark Bead and all)
    - I couldn't decide on the armor. It's all for looks, obviously because that's all that matters! But I'm not satisfied with it right now...
    - SL120, because making a Str/ Int SL99 is actually very hard! Since Str builds need so much End too, and you always need Vit, and you need some Att, and you need the high Str and Int, obviously--just too many stats need to be high for this to work.


    So call it a work in progress! You can take away some Vit to put into End to find some better armor combination. I'd like Int to be higher, but with those stats it wasn't an option. I'm not sure about the rings either, so play with those if you like. Finally: if you're into shields (I'm not into those things silly), it would make this build a lot easier to pull off, since you could more safely go to mid-roll, which would mean more equipment for less End. But I don't use shields and I like mobility, especially for casters, so it's stretched thin as it is!


    (Also, go comment on my Apache Helicopter build dammit! It was very late at night when I created it and I'm getting self-conscious about it, so go criticize it already!)

    Long url better?

    Actually I thought about the build for a second, and with Dark Magic, casters don't necessarily need to be mobile anymore. Quite the opposite, actually! If they can tank a hit or two, that'll allow them to shoot off a lethal Dark Bead blast right in their opponent's face. No need to be fast roll for that.

    I don't know how this armor would look in-game, just threw it together:

    http://mmdks.com/1848

    (Sorry Rant! Guardian Helm, Black Knight Armor, Havel's Gauntlets and Leggings. Plus the addition of the Butcher Knife for backup weapon, because why not!)

    SL100 version: http://mmdks.com/184c (again, don't know about the armor...)

    i have been trying to make an sl 99(100) build that is perfect and i always end up not liking it, here it is
    http://mmdks.com/184a i like your build and the mace is pretty awesome, it might not have infinite stunlock but you can get two hits for sure before your opponent rolls out(three if hes too slow), people often underestimate the hammers, most people dont know that they break 52 poise and they will get stunlocked on the second hit.

    I like a lot of Vit on my builds! silly I never use shields though, so I need to be able to soak up the occasional hit. Try going mid roll with your SL100 build, will probably end up being easier to make it to your liking.

    Mages use MLGS because it has S scaling in Int... lol they don't have many options for a weapon besides enchanted ones with split damage.

    if DGM was the only high scaling str weapon in the game im sure every str build would have that also

    Here you go:

    https://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=341918762520565099

    Good spell damage, and also a lights-out backstabber.

    I'd host with it though. That way you can buff up as they are spawning. If they try to avoid you then you at least got some estus to chug to survive.

    I'm finishing up my Magic Miner build with no complaints, The Pickaxe is a highly underrated weapon, A Scaling, Thrust Damage, ability to stunlock.

    The MLGS is for when the Crystal Buff wears off, or to unleash waves of moonlight.

    http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=420983840646380535

    38 Poise is more than enough now a days if you're fast rolling.

    Why 35 poise?

    Perhaps this can be used? Never tried a powerful int build but it can work since you get 61 poise and some powerful magic that does not use dark magic, and a defense spell to it.

    ok so i made a build for ya and it does use the large club but you can one hand if you feel and tcc is for the large club only so make sure you make the club+15 and use the weapon buff. also logs cat is for all your other spells but tcc can be used instead except for strong sheild use logans only and lastly its a med roll which will still dodge attacks and keep you alive like a fast roll would with some poise. anyway enjoy if you use this build

    A strength plus int hybrid?

    Here is how I use my strength/mage. Granted, I'm forest hunting, but it's definitely a viable build.
