    Straight Sword PvP Build - Need Help

    That's basically what I have so far. The armor was a little tricky, but I really like the way it looks big grin You could also exchange the Maiden Skirt for the similar Black Tights for a full match, but the skirt is just way better. Seems like it would be pretty fun to play. My first straight sword build.

    Well if you're gonna do a sunlight straight sword build why not do a Solaire cosplay?! Or wear some armor set at least. Just seems to me a knights armor fits a straight sword build!

    Then again that's just my awful opinion anyways

    I notice you don't have a shield.
    I'm presuming the point is to two hand it, right?
    Then do this!

    27 strength = 40 strength if two handing, so no attack power is really lost.
    Great Soul Arrow for PvE purposes.
    Balder Armor fits a "cosplay" style of straight sword usage, while also hitting 76 poise, which will make a majority of weapons not stun you.
    DWGR to wield the armor with full mobility.

    You could get 7 more points out of that build if you started as a pyromancer instead of a theif.

    The full balder set only awards you a total of 36 poise. Here's the reference: http://darksouls.wikidot.com/balder-set

    36 + the wolf ring's 40.

    I love straight swords, they should be more wide spread. Rynn that setup looks really good.
