    433 is not really enough AR for the claymore once your buff runs out, you should have something as backup.

    Clatmores make great buff targets, I assume your armor set is chosen for the way it looks rather than raw stats, so I can't really make comments there other than I enjoy the Maiden / Dingy hood for dressing up. (Dingy matches the paladin set quite nice)

    Stats seem reasonable, not sure about 31 faith, usually people stop at 30 or push on to 40/50 as a single point doesn't change the AR of buffs entirely too much.

    I know some, mainly forest covenant and such, where PvP can be a protracted event rather than the short quippy fights common in the burg/kiln ect. like to have Force to "bluff" Wrath of God casts (or generally push people off stuff) Where as I almost always would just take a second stack of WotG as I feel 6 casts is enough for any possible fight I might get into. But that's a small issue and majority a playstyle choice.

    Definitively Though I'd say put on a Grass Crest Shield. Even if you NEVER block with it you get stamina regen for your 2H claymore. and you have the Burden for it without changing anything.

    The 31 faith is because my char already have that :suspect: i was going for a 40/40 dex faith but i changed my mind...

    and i could try this too (second try) to have a quick reliable weapon as backup...

    and for last, if i stunlock someone with force i can get one free hit with the claymore and roll out...

    I think +15 BSS because it's not split damage will outdamage Elemental ones at 40+Dex

    I don't think anyone would not approve of keeping a BSS around as a backup weapon. It's very well received

    I would make these changes http://tinyurl.com/cn8edjo

    Basically trying to maximize the claymore damage(my main character uses a bastard sword with 40/40 str/dex and it does 534 compared to your original 433, and is fine on its own). If you wanted 45 dex for a faster force, I don't the difference between that and 40 is all that great. I also took out an attunement slot, I've never found TWoP to be that useful without a TWoP/WotG combo or something like that. Even then it's unreliable(IMO) outside of ganking. Shields are nice too.

    my idea is to use the fastest bow just for poison, with the tranquil walk of peace should be really easy to do that

    comp bow is the fastest thouhg(need comfirmation on that) and you dont need twop since even if they dodge they dstill get the poison build up unless they roll to the side, if they roll towards you they get poisoned.

    no poiso is only affected by your opponents res to poison. you can actually poison a dragon with one shot i think.

    Shortbow CompBow and DarkMoonBow are all tied for fastest shot speed according to another thread here (Thanks twinkly lizard)

    Poison Arrows will poison in the same number of shots hit regardless of damage.

    So rethinking all the idea i came up with something i would like very much to test... this one

    i think it has everything that i need for pvp, a great powefull weapon with a great backup weapon, a fast bow and some miracles (the idea in first place was to make a STG/FAITH build so i dumped the dex idea)

    Grab your canvas talisman.
    It has higher magic adjustment.

    The HP bonus is too good, 300 HP really make a difference. I think +40 poise is enough for the zweih, you'll be breaking most guards, however your weakness will be giants mom, as they can tank 1 hit from you. So don't try stunlocking them, instead use the amazing roll R1. I would have the Scythe ready for menu swap, so that at least you can have +53 poise.

    Ahhh if you unequip the Scythe and switch giants gaunts for havel's you'll hit 53 poise. Doesn't match the looks but damn.... With the extra equipload you could lower End to minimum and increase HP even more.

    Yeah your buff, wogs and arrows will hit very hard. I would even try divine/occult Scythe instead of lightning.

    Yeah, in that case consider a chaos Composite Bow with fire arrows. Occult/divine or Darkmoon Bow need 50 faith to actually out damagethe elemental bow.
