    What is your equipment? Also adding points to dex after 40 isn't very useful.

    wasnt sure where to put the next 3 points.

    Equipment would vary i guess, normally i shoot for 76+ poise and whatever i think looks cool.

    however weapons i stick to lightning iato, chaos uchi, lightning claymore. Really not sure what else i could use to my advantage. Still kind of a noob to PvP

    My question is why do you have such a high dex when you're using elemental weapons that don't scale?

    For your main weapon I would use a +15 Uchigatana/Iaito and buff it with Darkmoon Blade/Sunlight Blade, that would make the most of your stats.

    what about any other weapons like the estoc or other straight swords

    Would it be wise to go chaos on any of my weapons ?

    also where should i throw those 3 extra points

    I normally don't use Chaos weapons so I can't really inform you of my opinion on them. I suppose they could work if you keep 10 Soft Humanity on you at all times.

    Same as the Iaito/Uchigatana, +15 then buff it with Darkmoon/Sunlight Blade.

    The Washing Pole is a very powerful weapon, just be prepared to repair it often.

    Your stats are good, you can use a great variety of weapons with that build. Katanas, spears, rapiers and halberds/scythes. Only use elemental if your stats don't scale good with the weapon.

    Also try Great Lightning Spear. With 43 Dex its casting speed is faster.

    Low HP but can work if you are dodgy. As a secondary weapon I love Dragonslayer Spear for my Dex/Faith build, it's amazing.

    Yeah thats what i figured, Ide like to try out the Dragon slayer spear but then ide have to put more points into strength lol

    and also i forgot to add in attunement slots, so i had to rework it.

    This is the best i could come up with, Its either get Faith to 47 and stick with 31 vit/end. Or stick with 45 faith, and keep vit/end at 32

    really not sure how to go about this lol,

    or i could just drop faith back to 30 to put more into vit/end

    This is the best I can think of. I changed the BK gaunts (if you don't mind) for Giants gaunts. This adds more than 36 poise, which is the sweet spot for almost all one handed weapons. And the FAP ring for some Str and End. Don't worry about End you'll see it's enough.

    Check out that thread, at the bottom you'll find a list of all the poise sweet spots. With 41 poise you'll have to be careful to not get stunlocked by Zweis or Claymores. I recommend you test another armor combo that at least give you 53 poise. Just play with the End stat and choose an armor combo that looks nice to you.
