    Haha, same thing with me plastic, Only I stopped at 120 and used him as a testing mule for all sorts of weapons.

    He is the toon I have leading my Roulette duels right now but his stats... oh god. I don't even know what I was doing. I basically changed my mind with what I wanted him to be midway through the game, I started with dex and iaito and I really wanted to try Zweihander so I got his strength up to like 50, Uhg. Ah, well he is still fun to PVP with, though he can only take about 2 hits.

I was wondering if large sized shields are a dying breed or people just prefer light shields for certain special effects (for instance, I see a lot of people use the Grass Crest Shield). I guess a lot of people don't think high stability is much of an advantage. I still like my Eagle Shield for its high stability and light weight for its category.

    Overall they're just too heavy and dont offer anything amazing. Yeah some holding a havels shield is going to pretty much be immune to damage, but the stat commitment to that item is absurd. Eagle shield is the only reasonable one, but id rather have parry in most cases

    For boss battles like O&S or against the kiln black knights greatshields are amazing because they stop you being crushed. However in pvp and most normail enemies the parry is just so much better.

    Eagle shield is as heavy as I go but if i'm going to use a shield its usually the Heater Shield fully upgraded. 100% phy damage reduction and quick parry = awesome

    I still have my first build. He was a total mess at the end of my first play through, which I refused to use any kind of advice for, internet or otherwise. I've since made him into my endless leveling build. Right now he's around SL255. Anyway when I fought Gwyn for the first time it was with him. SL90ish, no magic ability whatsoever, with the Eagle Shield and the Gravelord Sword. That was not an easy battle. Not at all.
    My first fight with him was at sl 80, BK shield and BK Sword and about 35 Str, no magic, ranged, or parrying ability.
