    gotta look good, right?

    Post by redwingsoverbaron on Fri Sep 06, 2013 3:13 am

    so my first character to beat the game was a dex/faith build, well, since my last year in pvp ive been wanting to get some of that faith back into play.

    im building a very paladinesque build, im looking at a divine greatsword (tarkus), and crest shield, my goal is to use the miracles to keep them on their toes and then hit them with the side of a train.

    im wanting to stay around the sl 100 range, but that leaves my points tight, since im wanting to run 40+ faith with an ultra greatsword, i refuse not to fast roll, just not happening,

    im thinking most of the armor will consist of brass, but im having a hard time personalizing it, nothing too heavy, just something to accent AT LEAST the brass chest and gauntlets, any ideas?

    This is a tough one. Threw this together real quick (I'm at work)
    http://mmdks.com/3vsx

    The hswc really does take away from the theme. I found it difficult to reach 31 poise without it while not gimping in some other area. If you don't care about poise threshold (or find something that works better)... ditch it. I also changed the shield to something lighter that hopefully still fits the theme.

    I found no room for 28 str. Left it at 19 so you can two hand the GS. To compensate, I added a side weapon.

    Again... threw this together real quick at work. I'm sure it can be imporoved / customized.

    Hope this helps...somehow.

    If I were you I would medium roll it is really fun when you get into it, especially with faith builds since you can you Force and WotG to scare your opponent a bit. This is what I use:

    Dont really use SLB too much, usually I forget to cast it.

    On the topic of looking good, here is one of my favorite armor setups. Too bad there's a lot of different setups with this build that can offer more poise/defenses. But i'd rather look good than function. Amirite?



    Boss status. Also an oldie but goodie -
