    Forest Hunting.... With Style.

    This build has always held a special place in my heart, one of my better dual wielding builds.

    I re-vamped it and made it much better, more effective, and overall much more stylish and swagtastic.

    What do you guys think of it?

    Looks very competitive, indeed.

    Is that a nice way of saying tryhard?
    lol! 
    Don't worry, all of my forest bro builds are tryhard.

    Zweihander on the off-hand? I envy you and your PVP skills, because anyone that does that is either insane or better than me.

    I always pick the latter.

    It's a pretty popular combination of weapons in the dual-wielding community, from what ive seen.

    Good for those combos named after food.

    I've seen a lot of love for the Zwei off-hand, maybe that's just been recently though.

    Ive actually never seen it in the wild, but people seem to talk about it.

    I know that some dont consider mage build stylish, but this is most likely my favorite forest hunter build:

    Huh, I've only seen it once before and the player using it was actually quite good with it. Although normally when I fought duel wielders though they would use either the bandit's dagger, winged spear, or a curved sword.

    I tried dual wielding the Great Sword of Artorias before in the forest.

    It ended in tears. For me.

    Even stranger than the fact that I thought this might be a good idea is that I ran into a ganking host who was also using two GSoAs. He was arguably a little better than me with it but the world will never know since his phantom didn't wanna butt out.

    More on topic, that's a pretty cool setup. I can't say as I've seen much other than an occasional off hand spear in my time. Haven't been in the forest for months though either.

    A little less swag and a little more yolo. Try fire tempest. I just love to imagine gankers' faces when they roll into a pillar of fire and take 1000 damage. lol!

    I fought a ganking trio yesterday and I just could't beat them.  They were too good and really knew how to work together.  I was awestruck by how synchronized they were, but I did catch a bit of it on footage.  They essentially did this three part attack after gesturing with their weapons and I just had no way to counter it.  Here's what they did to me.

    Gankers:

    I've noticed that most experience players love gankers, in an odd sort of way, because they're more of a challenge than 1v1. Not that 1v1 isn't fun, it's just more exciting when the odds are against you.


    Masochism.This is what Dark Souls has done to me ._.

    I have seen builds like that a few times, half of them use a falchion instead. I have never lost to one yet, but it is pretty interesting to fight. Definitely fun for me, probably not them though.

    My best forest hunters are my Battle Mage http://mmdks.com/3pnf
    And my DPS falchion user http://mmdks.com/3pni

    Both can be pretty mean, with the latter I only pull out if I am feeling very annoyed at the people that live in the forest and decide that it needs to be rid of a few of the more annoying gankers.
