    I'll wait to see what the game will be like. If I'll even want to do PvP at all.
    If I do, I'll probably make some OP build that can use everything, so that I can use it to test stuff.
    After that, I'll decide what to do next, based on what I'll like the most when used on this build.

    well i can't really say since i have no idea on what weapons and spells etc. there will be(aside from the few that I've seen from trailers and such)

    but since in both souls games i normally always use dex, I'll go with dex and int

    that's what i plan to start pumping on my first toon; and most likely my first pvp centered toon
    however it could change once i start to find out which weapons i prefer most etc. etc.

    Given all the new features of magic and the fact that I've never really used int or fth in the first game, I'm probably going to go with one of those first. More specifically, I'm going for int. The reintroduction of fire magic and the new magic greatsword (if I remember the name properly) especially have me really excited. I'm definitely going to check out a fth-based build at some point as well. No more ridiculous 50 fth requirement to join a covenant like in the unpatched version of Dark Souls!

    Probably going to try a faith/str build. If there are any lightning miracles I want them and I'm hoping there's another Leeroy style npc with a massive club and lots of heals to just keep smashing people in x)

    I'm going weapon searching since i look at the weapons i like more than anything else. Hell if nothing else i will probably make a canceler build to screw with people. Over all though probably some quality build with magic of which idk.

    A duel-wielding strength mage! My first playthrough is going to be absolutely filled with death.

    I'll analyze the mechanics and decide to use whatever changed the most.

    If magic is still pull out a medium and push a button while the spell travels to your target, then I doubt it will be in my build at all. If there's something cool like a method to control a spell during it's flight path, or more interesting ways to augment yourself(Movement speed buff, at the cost of some armor, a Dragon form that is actually useful, etc.) then I'd go for it, but if it keeps the spell system we have now, I won't use magic on my first build.

    Duel wielding is getting a rework if memory serves right, so I'll probably duel wield, and if Crossbows can get a crosshair without having to pull out binoculars then I'll probably carry a crossbow too.

    Love me a Paladin. Going to go for Str/Faith build and see what dark evils this holy vessel can smite.

    Probably no specific build. I'll place some points into STR, DEX, INT, FAI, ATT and RES just to test it all out. Concentrated builds make things easier, while versatile builds let you test things out more.

    Although I might prioritize STR slightly in case I need the power.

    Str or Int.

    My first build will probably be highly leveled and not really PvP viable because I want to test things.

    Dex/Int has been my standby for both Demons and Dark Souls, so I'll probably make that. 

    I'll find me a solid dex weapon, say a katana. and then upgrade it normally so I can use buffs and what not. 

    Plus the plethora of awesome offensive spells (which I already got to try out once).

    I am going for a Dex/ Faith build. Pump up my Dex, then faith as I go. Just like my Darkmoon character

    I may go for a str/int build, now that I think about it. Of all the things I've seen from the gameplay footage that's been released, I want to try out that ballin' greatsword more than anything.

    I really hope crossbows get a cross hair since they're improving archery it would seem a bit sad to ignore crossbows even further. I really expected the Sniper Crossbow to have this as it's edge when I first heard about it and was massively disappointed. If improved I will definately try a build based around it.
     Bad day

    I'll do what I did in DeS and DkS: grab the biggest weapon I can find and grind my enemies to dust!

    Str for me.

    Well, if Demon's and Dark Souls 1 were any indication, I'll probably start with a Str character for about a third of a playthrough, then start up an Int build and actually beat the game my first time with that.

    So I guess pure Int.

    Probably quality so I can test out a big arrange of weapons, then a dual wield character asap.

    Depends a lot on how scaling works.  For me it was all about finding a weapon I liked the move set with (halberd and claymore) and getting just enough stats to use it along with a bow.  Just enough faith for a heal and homeward.  the focus on endurance and finding a good mix of armor to optimize defense and move/roll speed.  Agility should factor in as well.   

    With the new dynamics and figuring out how all that fits together, it should be fun.

    Dex dual wield and then int. Even if they nerf int.

    I hope there's Homing Soulspear Mass.

    I honestly don't know what I'll focus on. I'll probably take the traditional route and make a 40/40 stat build. Gotta get a feel for the game before I start making serious PvP and PvE builds.
