    My warrior is only 95. So yeah, I cant take a couple points off Vit and get some pyromancy.

    I've been dueling with WhatDoesThePendantDo? for a little while, and we're mostly even, the matches can go either way. Of course, now we're struggling to meet because we keep getting invaded XD

    What's your build's stats right now then? You've 25 points left to distribute and that's more than enough to change a build in a major way.

    Ta~da. Havel's armor is alright, but if you're using the wolf ring then Black Iron will be a far better arrangement. Less weight, still enough poise to handle great axes and three att to support yourself.

    Oh right, I forgot to update the build in my signature.

    This is what I'm currently planning: http://tinyurl.com/cr53znu

    EDIT: Thinking of switching Elite Knight Top out for Black Knight top, so I can hit 77 poise exactly.

    That looks great, though Great Chaos Fireball is awesome the 2 slots is a bit harsh. I approve though, because the lava makes a great cover for a running spear poke flurry

    Well I'm getting 4 uses out of it, I don't plan on spamming spells at all.

    Yeki, what's up with Firestorm instead of Fire Tempest?

    Dub- On my FH I use Havel's gloves and legs and Eastern Armor. I like the look and it hits the breakpoint. If you do use Havel's to get to 56 poise, any armor with at least 20 poise will hit the breakpoint. Somewhat disappointing that Silver Knight is only 19 poise.

    Aye, but Great Fireball does the same damage, and then you can use something else like fire tempest

    I thought I hit tempest >_>

    Oh, and unless you have your heart set on the Sunlight Straight Sword I'd go with the Balder Side Sword. Moveset, range, scaling, and damage are awesome.

    Black Knight has 21 though big grin

    SK looks better though. Oh, the other notable breakpoints are 56 for 2H MLGS R1 and 53 for all other 2H greatswords.

    I think Black Knight matches my character better, he is gonna be a gravelord after all, so dark colors are good.

    Point. If you only want 56 poise, there are some seriously kickass looking armors you can have. My personal favorites are the Gold Hemmed and Crimson Robe (has a pretty cool bit hanging below the waist that combines well with Havel's Leggings). Also, going without any chest armor at all and using a Mask makes you look kind of like an executioner badass.

    Eastern chest with Havel's arms and legs for me. Dusk crown meshes INCREDIBLY well with the Eastern set, so I look good and burn you for over a 1000 with 1 pillar of tempest

    Aye, but can you use DSS, GSoA, Grasscrest, ascended flame and bellowing dragoncrest ring while still flip with dwgr?

    I'm teasing, I just wish there was a real justification to use fast roll over flipping.

    Don't have enough INT for the GSOA, I roll with an SLB Murakumo +15. I'm still having issues with not enough equip slots though. To buff my weapon, I need a talisman, but I want a shield for parrying and stamina regeneration and a Flame for lobbing balls of molten slag. Speaking of which, instead of the RTSR I need to try the BDCR in duels.

    Can't you parry with your pyro glove?

    You can't parry, you get the flame jab. And I'm afraid you're gonna have to use the menu swap to use the talisman and flame effectively.

    No, it's a crappy punch (though it's fun to beat up hollows with), and even if it did have a parry I suck at blind parries.

    Seems like I've already improved! I was Gravelording in Anor Londo and I beat three people in a row before finally losing.

    Congratulations.

    You are now an official Gravelord.

    I welcome you in your success. You will find better tidings in PvP with Gravelording than most. Why force yourself to invade others, when you can draw them to you?

    Besides... most of the infectees are not darkwraith-set players, with lightning weapons and the heaviest of armour. Instead, they are more... diverse. Givesa bittersweet aftertaste to it.

    Some people in PvP really do test me sometimes.

    I was Gravelording in Anor Londo and got invaded by two people I infected. I duel one for awhile because he was a tBKGA tank who kept healing before the other decided to step in and finish me in a 2v1. I'm alright with that, I gravelorded and should've expected that.

    However, he has the gall to bow afterward. I honestly wanted to punch something after I saw that.
