    I have some questions: First off, SL 135 seems like a strange level, is there a reason for that? Second, without the needed Faith requirement Sanctus won't block attacks to its fullest potential, it'll still heal you but it won't hold up its end defensively. Thirdly, you're up to 40 DEX, why not go for 45 and max casting speed, you're pretty close already? Lastly, it doesn't seem to me like you're optimizing your equip load properly with that build fast roll is a very real possibility, but if you're fine with mid roll you can afford to get yourself more poise, you can spare the weight.

    My $0.02 or $0.03 silly

    EDIT: Also, 22 Attunement is a waste. You just need 19 for those spells.

    Minify that link, man!

    OMG, what are you doing with this build?! With elementals, you only need the required stats to make them work. Use those points to increase your End or Vit. Cloranthy isn't need when you have Grass. Like what Pendant said, the Sanctus will drain more of your stamina without the required stats.

    Here, i tried to salvage the build the best i can without changing too much of your setup. Since i have no idea what you're really going for, here it is.

    More Vit, minimum End for mid-roll, 56 poise, Grass Crest for your stamina worries, 2 hand the Server and better defense overall. It's better to go for the Chaos upgrade rather than Fire. At least to me anyway. Fire deals more physical damage while Chaos does more fire damage. Since it's split AR, i would think that the higher it is, you can still get decent damage from it. You're now at SL115 and still have 10 more points to use if you're aiming for 125 and an empty ring slot for you to use. =)

    Sanctus will actually heal you even if you have it on your back, so if youre not planning on blocking, and youre always going to two hand your server then dont sweat the faith requirement.

    Reason for 40 STR?

    EDIT: Fixed your extra attunement: https://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=206365046235887743

    Looks good. Although i'm not too sure if its wise to go for en elemental Server. Someone with better experience, come help clarify this?

    Also, once you're set on your weapons, lower your End to the minimum you need to mid roll. It saves you points and at 30 End with the FaP Ring, it gives you the same amount of End at 40. Use those extra points to increase your Vit.

    With 45 dex it almost seems like a waste to have elemental weapons. I'd get one that scales with dex.

    Yup, that's so much better. Well done!

    Oh, if you plan on punishing turtles, swap out whatever ring you're using to the Wolf Ring. Because chances are that you'll lose the stunlock race with only 53 poise.

    Yep left the last ring slot for situational purposes.

    With this much Str/Dex, using lightning weapons is an utter waste. Go normal and two-hand!
