    I'm the same, but I also like to see what my opponent will do.

    I think I'm a true reactive.
    At first, I will be dodging your attacks, placing a fast stike when I see a little opening.
    I'll be on the defensive side most of the duel, but I can switch to the aggressive side when i feel confident enough.
    Faster weapons fit my playstyle more, hiting just after your swing and quickly withdrawing.
    Even if I have a build base on DGA, I usually don't use weapons slower than greatswords.
    I never use spears (not even tried), and my tanks are not turtles but high endurance + fast roll + high poise (often 2-handing without shield)

    Random note: the image was originally designed for people to put pictures/names of weapons or builds or whatever in each box, because I tend to swap playstyles a lot based on what I'm using (and a lesser extent based on the match-up and opponent playstyle). E.G., I'm typically kind of aggressive and very prediction-based when using Zweihander for example, while I tend more towards neutral or defensive play when I use an Uchigatana. When I use Dragonslayer Greatbow I am 100% into Reactive Defensive territory.

    Do you unwisely reveal your second weapon early?

    Do you cast with no set ups?

    Are you an obvious aggressor?


    It doesnt take long to tell.

    So... we'd just sit there staring at each other while I run towards you with my shield up, trying to goad you into making the first move?

    I like getting fights over with as soon as possible, so I tend to charge the player with spears and/or heavy weapons. If they run away, I chase them down and get a running backstab. This kind of hurts me though for PvE because I rush into fights and sometimes get overrun. But rushing does come in handy for places like New Londo Ruins. I usually run past all of the ghost to get to the roof of the building, then run past them all again to get to the gate seal. It tends to get the blood pumping. I guess you could say I'm bloodthirsty.

    Most of my builds rely on melee with dexterity, although I have two builds that use the zweihander or the Demon Machete. I like drawing the fight out if I can if I'm invading too, if I can tell the host will do anything to see me dead I'm going to make him jump through hoops before we even fight.

    I used to like to think that I could roll with anything, but after long hours I've come to appreciate that I:

    Prefer STR to DEX
    Prefer mid roll to fast
    Prefer miracles to spells
    Prefer two-handing to blocking/parrying

    and most of all..

    The slower it swings, the more satisfied I am when I crush someone with it. I'll defend Smough's hammer to my deathbed.

    Lol, maybe. But if I'd been drinking, then things change :drunken:

    I have a persona for all my builds. I have to get into character for each of them. I play different for my Gravelord, Darkmoon, and Forest Hunter. I also have 3 sister builds that use the same gear but employ slight differences in strategy.

    After finding a new love for the Broadsword, I've had to adapt a new strategy. Get up close, and get out as soon as possible.

    I've yet to find my full playstyle, but for the time being I just wait for my opponent to do something, then I'll see what I can pull off from there.

    I can't think ahead lol, so I just leave it up to instinct.
