    Build critique, also general PvP advice

    Tell me what you guys think of this build:

    It seems viable to me... It is a faith/dex build but it doesn't seem quite
    right. I welcome any constructive criticism, and I don't care all that
    much about looks or anything.

    Edited it every so slightly with rings and armor now you won't be getting one hit stunned by Ultra Greatswords and other weapons like it.

    Oh jeeze, I like giving build advice, but really this one is really pretty great. The only thing I can say that seems it needs the most improvement is your armor. If you wear Ring of Favor and Protection, and Mask of the Child you should be able to wear more armor that is better (Havel's is pretty good armor too). I notice I'm giving you advice to make your character like everyone else's, but if you want better, this should be overall better (but not completely better).

    Yes your build in general is absolutely wonderful. Also I'd reccomend SLB and going into dat forest ;D or the burg. The burg is wonderful to (it's where I pvp :3) Also I'm SL125 and I always get pvp in the burg o.o

    Can't give exact advice on that. DMB is the best buff for miracles (I believe) but I've always considered Sunlight Blade to be the cooler, if only a little worse, maybe leave Darkmoon and try Darkwraith. I also believe that Darkwraiths invade levels higher, but Darkmoon invade levels lower. You may want to make it a SL 121-125 for that, but I'd ask a Darkmoon master first.

    Another thing I just noticed, at 35 Faith, you should be using the Canvas Talisman and not the Darkmoon Talisman.

    My 2cents. Take both dmb and slb (ng+ though), and invade using cracked red eye orbs, then you can chose which buff, based on opponent armour happy When you run out of orbs, join darkwraith buy more then rejoin darkmoon. The only downside from this is that you wont get the advantage of the covenant level damage increase for dmb unless you give reprisals each time you rejoin. Its a worthy trade of though, imo. Its what I usually do if I want dmb.

    For buffing you ideally want 50 faith. If you really dont want 50 faith, keep it at 30 and use canvas talisman as the extra magic adjust increase at 35 faith really isnt worth 5 levels, and these could be put to better use elsewhere happy

    I would go to 50 faith but given i don't really want to cut back in much it is hard to say... maybe cut back in dex and a smidge in vit?? Would that be worth the 50 faith?

    I'd reccommend taking away those 5 faith levels and putting them into other places.

    I would stick with either 30 faith or 50. Between 30 and 49, there isn't a huge gain for the stat points you are putting in. At 50, the Darkmoon Talisman kicks in. So, it usually isn't worth sacrificing points to put into Faith between 31 and 49.

    I would drop Faith to 30 and up something else, like Vit.

    That makes sense, thanks for the help! I really hope this build works out.
