    Need opinions on where to go next with my build

    Post by zachry101 on Tue Mar 27, 2012 8:40 am

    Hi I am new to the dark souls forum but I have been in love with the game since it first came out, the lore, the gameplay, everything. I have a character that is SL 104 right now and I want to start getting into pvp and have no idea where I should go with this character.

    My stats are

    V [37]
    A [12]
    E [33]
    S [35]
    D [22]
    R [12]
    I [15]
    F [20]

    I use The Gravelord Sword +4/ Lightning Iaito +5 with Bloodshield +10

    My armour is Mask of the Child with everything else Elite Knight Armour +10 and ring of favour + wood grain wing

    Any pointers or advice would be greatly appreciated happy

    You have tons of str & dex. I'd switch to a claymore or zweihander to take advantage of it. and put your remaining points up to 120 into dex for base damage, or add 10 to faith for sunlight blade then put your remaining points up to 120 int dex for base damage

    Put faith on 30, put strength on 40. Switch your little Lightning Iaito with a bad *** Great Hammer or any Strength based weapon. Buff it with Sunlight Blade as Pirate says. Use WoG or any other miracle you like. If you don't want the Dex points go to waste you can also use the Black Knight weapons (Greatsword, Great Axe).

    Thanks for the pointers I'm already bringing my faith up to 30, and I'll probs do claymore or zweihander. Is my armour selection alright? I find it works very well. is 120 the ideal SL for pvping?

    Well you are raising your faith BUT you still have 15 int. I'd recommend keeping your catalyst on you and keeping one utility sorcery on you. Commit to a "main" weapon and shield and then have your talisman/catalyst as your off hands. Chameleon comes to mind. It's really fun to toy with and is nice for getting a breather in combat or just being able to assess the situation when you get invaded before comitting.

    Other then the 15 int you might end up wasting by your 20 faith, your build is good. You have the stats to really set up for some damage. Can toss around some spells and aren't too squishy.

    If you didn't theory craft this build at all then you have a good sense of what's important for a character. Good job!

    The only thing I would change is the armor set up.

    I like a lot of other people like to look good while PvPing.

    For instance I use:

    Silver Knight Helm
    Witch's Cloak
    Maiden Gloves (I like the white gloves look, also with the small gloves the sleeves on the cloak are long)
    Havel's Legs.

    So imo I look good while having a bit of defense.
