    hmm thats interesting, im thinking bout using medium armour though im really liking low poise these days, so maybe i can still get a fast roll without the DWGR?

    You will love the MSGS after you use it. I found the bastard sword took to long to recover after a swing.

    i forgot about the weight and you might not be able to fast roll, but its so awesome you shoud try play around with your armor so you can use it. with the gear you have you can use it and still fast roll btw, awesome.

    Get 66 strength - higher than that is pointless because when you 2h with 66str you basically have 99 strength

    also amos i am quit happy with the strengh as it is, and im quite stoked botu the idea of taking teh DWGR off id have to sacrifice vitality to get the strength up then id have to compensate with a MoM and ive never done that before and i dont intend on doing, it so thanks for your advice but i dont think i should follow it happy

    heres a super stamina bkgs build im making currently, except im using dwg so i've reconfigured the build to fit that (hence havels ring and less than 40 vit) but you've got every stamina regen item in the game on and 56 poise and if you wanted you could remove the MoC in exchange for maybe a pharis hat or something.

    holy crap that's a little overkill with the stamina regen dont you think? yo ucould swap the cloranthiy ring for something more useful and i really dont like the parry of the gcs. but thats just me if it works for you that's cool.

    the point was super stamina twisted and yeah the cloranthy could be exchanged for say the rofap for more stamina and heavier armor if you do cloranthy, rofap with all the other items in the build however your limited to mid roll even at 99 end.... any way the stamina regen IS pretty crazy huh especially since i was gonna use green blossoms too...

    lol i only use green blossoms, i only dodge when i have to and attack when there's an opening or to bait someone into a parry so i dont need much regen than that.
