    stats aren't final, but just a template to my gear/spells. I would also like to stray from cookie cutter Dark Wood ring. Thanks! :D

    Here is my speculative build... What gear do you think would compliment this build?

    If you're getting the 30 faith to buff you need to use divine/occult/natural. You don't have enough dex/str for natural, and you can't buff divine or occult. Just throwing that in there. For weapons, damage doesn't matter, it's whatever moveset you like. For armor, it's whatever you have that gives decent poise and allows decent rolling. For instance, I use silver knight with havels gauntlets and gargoyle helm, and it gives me 66 poise, which is more than enough for most things, and still lets me ninja roll. Do you intend to cap at 81? If not, I'd really recommend pumping up dex or str to get good scaling on your +15 weapons and still have them buffable. Yeah... that wasn't really gear advice, sorry.

    Well, with DWGR, RoF&P, you can wear full +5 Giants, so you can do that. It's a bit cookie cutter, but very effective. You only wanted armor and rings right? Because your weapon slots are filled.

    Thank you for the replies. I should have noted that stats aren't final, but just a template to my gear/spells. I would like to be fairly low level though.

    Also, I would like to save my rings if possible for other uses. One being maybe an invasion ring.

    I was thinking Shadow or Thorns set?

    The invasion ring is only needed for the call. when you begin invading you can swap the ring for another. Do it all the time with the cat cov and DWGR

    I recommend going naked with only a club and a plank shield to defend yourself. If you must, wear a sack.

    Thanks! I laughed pretty hard when it told me I could wear Smough's and Havel's. It would certainly make my build way OP if I could.

    with that gear you can switch the rings and fast roll(not ninja flip) and still have 55 poise which lets you roll out of greatsword hits. also you can replace rofap with dwgr. that set up looks pretty cool in my opinion also.

    tip with invasion rings like the forest covenant and darkmoon ring you can just switch it once the invasion notice pops up saying your invading.
