    How does the build look? Should I change anything around? I think I've maximized the damage as much as I can, but some outside advice/insight would be great.

    Why two shields? Otherwise it seems like a good build, if you don't mind mid-rolling. I would do this http://tinyurl.com/cvowaqa

    start with the rapier, give them a couple of turtle pokes to lure a parry, and then switch to Artorias's sword for the riposte

    The GSoA doesnt have a reliable moveset for pvp, and if you're going to midroll with it i think you gonna have a bad time

    Yeah, it's only the R1/RB moves that are useful, but they can be parried fairly easily

    Switch out your red tearstone ring for DWGR and a slight armor adjustment makes you good for PvP happy

    use the cursed one if youre gonna pvp, the true gs is gonna do about 200 per hit which is kinda lame. you only need 27 str, two handing it will give you the same ar as 40 str. the biggest str of the gsoa is the reach, dont get too close r1 is probably all youre gonna be doing but if you stay far enough youre gonna connect a lot since most people will misjudge the length of the sword. i have one that looks like this http://tinyurl.com/c9mnacp

    A note. GSoA scales better with INT/FAI than it does STR/DEX as such http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=1979745872386791 has a whopping 13 (/sarcasm) more AR

    i didnt change the armor since that' up to him and i would do meed roll with wolf ring and switch to rtst when in low vit. med roll is viable if you are careful and dont come up against a aoe spammer, even then you ocan avoid that with backstep but it takes practice.

    Thanks for the tips everyone. I'm trying to stay away from the DWGR on my builds.

    I didn't realize the Cursed version of the sword does physical only damage. Probably something I should have checked haha. That build looks pretty good though.

    Rant got the best build for 120, but remember, that sword is NOT meant for capping. You will never reach its true potential unless you go sl 160+
