    Advice for a Faith/Int Build

    This will be a PvP build so any advice or tips would be appreciated. My first toon was a battle mage so I didn't want to use the Moonlight Greatsword again. Should I add in Sunlight Blade?

    Ditch the Dex and get some more poise.

    Great build.

    Low HP and poise worry me, but that's the only gripe that I have with it.

    As for SLB, your call really.

    EDIT: Also, the lack of parry is somewhat troubling to me. But that's also because the parry has become such a big part of my fighting style I'm not sure how I'd cope without it. I'm actually probably over-reliant on it, so take this concern with a grain of salt.

    Ok i'm going to tell you straight up, having both INT and FAITH is useless. Pick one. The fact is your just wasting levels that could be used elsewhere. For your build i'd suggest int. http://tinyurl.com/c89klay that's what i'd suggest at least lol.

    I went for Dex for the higher casting speed and no poise because I wanted to keep my distance and dodge. But I can just use the Wolf Ring too if you guys think that is a better option for me. I was going towards the glass cannon kind of hybrid with not much hp. Just trying something different. But yeah, I know a Int/Faith build isn't the best thing to use.

    The thing about having no poise is katanas. Without 21 poise, you're gonna get interrupted by anything. I would ditch the Dex and equip an Estoc with base stats instead. You buff it and you'll be infliting SLB/DMB/CMW damage still, which is high anyway. Then when the buff runs out you switch to any enchanted weapon you like and you'll be good. 3 stat hybrids are way too difficult to employ in PvP. I would do this.

    Or maybe DWGR and 31 poise. Your WoGs won't be as poweful but hell you got a lot that will deal about 400 damage each.

    DWGR version. The armor should look awesome the thing that worries me is the cloak's sleeves could look ugly but the crystal gauntlets look amazing.

    Some really good choices to think about there. I really like the idea of using the enchanted bow. I got some thinking to do. Thank you for the help.

    I like this armor setup too.

    Sorry for tweaking so much I'm just a freak of fashion. The crystal armor has become one of my favorites.

    Implications that MLGS Velka's WotG is not a good build.

    Past 40 int even with minimum reqs for weapons like the Estoc / BSS / Uchi CMW will make them hurt quite a bit.

    I would also note that should you ever be inclined to use a shield you can LH catalysts RH Talisman

    Yeah I was thinking of using the Dark Hand as my shield to go along with the magic theme and put the talisman in my right hand.
