    I always went for look on my armour, I just liked what I threw on together during my 1st playthrough and never looked back, though it gives decent protection too luckily.

    On weapon, I just go with what I feel like, though I never use BK weapons in PvP, they're just boring.

    Looks. Even the weapon, I never wear any mask, only wear havels leggings and gauntlets for pve, and never use dwgr.

    Most of my toons wear wanderer coat mixed with other equipment to look cool, one of them is a dragon, and the rest is kinda of cosplay. Like my gravelord wears hollow soldier set with man serpent greatsword, and the set has increably good phisical and lightning defense, believe it or not

    I personally hated the gold mask, I really liked having the silver coronet on my female mage though, and the officials hat on my first character cus it looks badass.

    Only mask I'm a big fan of is the Mask of Velka. Looks bad[bleep] with a P. Dagger and Dark hand, yo. Throw on a Which's chest, Silver Knight gauntlets, and Knight leggings, havel's ring (Fast roll w/o flip ring) and poise ring, and you're lookin BOSS! Only with female character, though.

    This.

    Though on any characters that aren't mages, I generally forget about big hat and never talk to him..

    Always go for looks. My toons have to look stylish and deadly. I've never used giant's or havel's armor.
    I alse have never used and perhaps never will use the masks. They are really awfull and I usually relate those with griefers and gankers.

    I used the mask of the child once, on a Cloranthy + Grass Crest char. I then built the other gear around making the mask look good. It was fun.

    When I starting playing I went more for functionality. I had to. I sucked.
    As I have improved, I realized my skill allows me to focus more on looks.
    Skill is more important than functionality. Aesthetics are impractical, but now I like trying to find gear that complements my build in both look and functionality.

    So, like many of you, I go for both. I don't care how good you think you are, there are players that are also very good and will hit you even if you think you're a god at the game.

    I run around with a skull lantern for a shield, and egg for a head, holy armour for clothes, and the only weapon of choice is either my heavy crossbow, serpent sword, or my demon great hammer. My miracles are the Gravelord Greatsword Dance and Sunlight Blade, and my Pyromancies the mists of misery.

    Functionality or Style? Always, style is top priority.

    i just made a low lvl build for helping in the first few areas(im still lvl4) its a mage. I personally think it looks so cool and its actually really functional. it consists of the witch hat+robe,dingy chest,gold hemmed gloves.
    http://tinyurl.com/7euyu3h the bandits knife is actually a +5fire. I have also come to the conclusion that the ghost blade is a great weapon for low levels. if you are able to go down and get lucky and score one
    with the few curse items available its one of the best weapons you can get right away. i have two one is un upgraded because the +5 one is too powerful for the early lvls. its really fast and has 155 base dmg without being upgraded and also causes bleed. i didnt bottomless box the witch hat and robe either i actually managed to defeat 4kings with this build with help from beatrice and a bad *** summon. if i had more time to try i most likely could have done it solo but it would have been hard. my goal was to create the best character i could without bb or ringing either bells. before i got the witch set i used dusks crown and gold hemmed robe. i know its not the best low level build under those conditions but for a mage its imo the best and coolest looking. you could wear dusks crown but the witch hat just looks a lot better
