    Hmm, for starters Ii would recommend leveling up to SL 125, as that usually is where most people stop for PvP. I would also suggest that you swap the heavy crossbow for the Avelyn, (found in duke's archives) as it is a much faster alternative and can be taken down the lighting path with lightning bolts for stunlocking from a distance.

    Avelyn is good, too bad you have to go through the stinking Duke's and do a nearly impossible jump for it.

    If you want to not go through the trouble of getting the Avelyn and need extra equipment space, (as silver knight armor is pretty bad), You could always utilize a throwing weapon like a poison throwing knife or firebombs and forget about the crossbows.

    That build is a lot better overall, I would only recommend you take some points off of endurance and vitality and put them into attunement (only 3 or 4) I would suggest that so that you have some form of attack other than pure physical by utilizing a pyro glove, as fire is VERY effective against people who turtle your spear and sword with Iron Flesh.

    Anytime I see someone using Iron Flesh and replenishment, I know **** just got real, and that we've got a badass over here... hehe, but yes I have seen a number of people using it, baiting you to CMW zweihander stunlock you, with TWOP. Worst case scenario of course.

    Maybe try this: SLB Balder Side Sword

    -SLB fits the theme.

    -Avelyn is hard to use in solo duels without a proper set up, but with some practice it can be used effectively against grassing, rebuffing, runners, etc.

    -Enough poise to effectively use the Balder Side Sword considering poise damage and the dps race.

    It might not suit your playstyle, I seen you had a great sword, its just something a little out of the box that might spark a different idea. :idea:

    Also, sunlight spear miracles would fit your theme, but require a crazy amount of practice time to use effectively in pvp, imo. I'd say even more so than lock-off CSS.

    ***edit***

    You can also switch out BSS for the Gold Tracer and a couple other weapons.

    I actually used dex weapons in other builds, but thanks for the suggestion, anyways I decided to make a build without buffs so sunlight blade is a no, balder side sword is good, but bastard sword needs more love, avelyn is indeed a great weapon, too bad the devs had to put it in the worst place possible.
    p.s why gold tracer?

    The Gold Tracer was suggested by Animaal because it is both very fast,and very damaging. I personally do not like it as it is a very overused weapon in PvP and you will probably receive hate mail for it, due to it's fast bleed build up. If you still want to use it I would recommend two handing it and spamming R1, see how annoying it could be.?

    So it appears you want a sl 125 that causes lightning damage.

    http://mmdks.com/2773

    Instead of a crappy split damage lightning wep, opted for the superior +15 Slb route. Kept your Orn helm which you appear to favor, kept use of a greatsword, and also worked your crossbow into the build (menu swap to it after buffing)

    Although I reduced your hp some 500 points, the sheer amount of damage you will deal with 2H running attack combos into R2 stunlock will be insane and outweigh 500 extra health. Also, added rapier for riposte/backstab. Still enough poise to tank the method I just described.

    Dat Wanderer Coat, Dem Shadow Leggings...

    ...That moment where you realize you should have recommended a 50 attunement Zeus build to the OP

    @Fireproof: Watch my video and you'll realize how easy to use the Gold Tracer is...

    @Lordgodofhell: I realize that sunlight blade is more powerful, but still I don't want to use it, i know that split damage is weak, it's just that i decided to make a build only with lightning weapons, not buffed ones, also i hate sunlight blade with a passion as i find it not op but overused.
    Thanks for the suggestion though.

    Do you mean to disagree with me by showing me the video ? I couldn't tell by your post. I saw him defeat you with lag yes, but that is also why I did not recommend the gold tracer, because through simply spamming R1 you can anger a lot of people.

    Oh, ok good. The Bastard sword is a good weapon to use in my opinion, as I personally use the DGM with my str build. I like the diversity of your build, and how it's not simply a mask of the child ninja flipping zweihander build. I think you will have lots of success with the build. I would still suggest getting yourself a pyromancy flame in order to have a backup way of dealing damage as opposed to the general "Stunlocking Tank" approach. You can never go wrong with a great(chaos?)Fireball. silly

    Sounds good, you could also pull a Lautrec and swap Black Flame for a Shotel. Or become the ultimate troll wearing full giants and use both at the same time! :mask-child: twisted Haha no, Your right about one thing, Great Fireball > Everything, maybe with the exception of that hacked miracle floating around where people can detonate Karmic Justice on command.

    Believe it or not, Giant Blacksmith Hammer is able to be wielded at SL1 two-handed, still, who could kill that bro... he hooked you up with lightning weapons when none else would and doesn't tell you to **** off every time you see him... Like Vamos. Unfortunately many new players see ooh chest! :mask-averice: without realizing you can roll through the barrels for the hawk ring.
