    Carry over 10 Crystal Greatswords and Crystal Swords; Carry over 5 Crystal Shields. You will be prepared to handle acidic durability spells and attacks from enemies.

    The Character has low vitality, due to the Knight being is a cursed form by the Basilisks. Makes attacking Ghosts easier in order to buff with Green Blossom and other factors of self buff.

    They have Crystal Magic Weapon, Crystal Homing Soul Mass, and Repair. Repair being used to repair the very expensive armour, as it does not repair crystal items other than the armour. Crystal Magic Weapon is used to amplify damage, and having three to four slots of it can allow long use of buffed weapons, as well as Pine Resin to use against Magic Resistant creatures.

    The items they use are the Firebombs (regular) to draw enemies as well as to antagonize enemies that stay afar; Green Blossom to be able to remove buff stamina regeneration; Pine Resin to buff the sword with lightning when Crystal Magic Weapon is not there; Blooming Poison Moss to make sure the lack of Poison Resistance does not hurt the Knight; A Fifth Item you deem necessary.

    A Composite Bow that is of Crystal Upgrade Path with Feather Arrows is a good charge for the Knight to aim at enemies from afar, and the lack of Bow (one per playthrough) would charge players to use the bow for emergencies only. After they go threw enough playthroughs, they can have multiple ones.

    I usually changed my Character to be either of the Dragon Covenant or the Gravelord Covenant. Its a good build, just know that your are a Crystal Cannon; Hard and Strong you are, however your durability (vitality) is low.

    Can you buff those crystal weapons? A crystal Bastard sword would be amazing for that build!

    I've used the crystal greatsword for sometime, and it can stunlock very easily! For PVP, I believe it has the same stunlock power as the GLGS

    Crystal Weapons can be buffed... that's why the knight has Pine Resin and Crystal Magic Weapon.

    I don't think you can buff those crystal weapons specifically Acidic.

    I have. Why would I say yes, if I have not tried them before? I have buffed Crystal greatsword with magic weapon, pine resin, and even Sunlight Blade (just to see if Sunlight would look good on crystals... saldy, no).

    Then that's amazing, one of the unique weapons that you can buff. I wonder why.

    Silver Knight Sword can also be buffed as well, and it is not a normal weapon (twinkling required). Some weapons are jsut buffable.

    Dragon King Axe is buffable, and I should know... I put some sun on it a good amount of times.

    I did a half *** version of something like this cook, it wasnt as fine tuned cause i didnt make the build around that idea. It was really fun, people actually get too **** a lot of the time knowing that the crystal GS and SS have negligible dmg. I so wish the crystal shield could parry, it pissed me off that the NPC in the game can parry with it but i cant.

    I envy that as well. Great stability for a stand alone set, with great resistance... the bash however is repulsive, but livable.

    I sometimes make crystal versions of blue kite shields to parry. Works just as well, as higher stability seems to decrease damage to weapons (even if the resistance is lower than a shield with higher resistance but lower stability).

    This is a shameless plug, but I'm sure the crystal seeker specialisation of the Noble knights would love to have you happy

    (And by that, I mean I need someone else to be a member, it still just looks like I made them just for myself lol! )
