    Completed NG with my Dex/Faith char with To link the Fire ending so now I feel like going for the Dark Lord ending. However, I need a fitting build for that, something that would fit the personality.

    Desired Soul Level: 100
    Str or Dex: Str or neither
    Favor Dmg, Vit, or End: Balance/whichever fits
    How you will use the build: As mentioned above, I'd like to have some evil-looking character. I've been rolling Dex and Dex-related builds for a while now so for a change I'd like to do STR build or a Dark Magic caster one*. Or a mix of the two (but no weapon buffs please, had enough of those for now winking ). Not sure how much I'm gonna indulge in PvP but I'd like it to be PvP friendly as well.
    Faith/Int? Int or neither

    *I'd be very thankful if you listed both options (Caster and Str) so that I can choose whichever I like more.

    This is a dragon: He will invade in the forest - I believe that he will be able to hold his own in battles but can also resort to buffing his allies (May they be NPC's or otherwise). The Flamberge has fantastic stunlocking capabilities along with dead angles from the 2h r2 attacks. You can do a 3 hit stunlock with it: R2,R2,R1. The CT will be useful for when you wish to keep targets at a range. Also you can bait backstabs by facing your back towards an enemy whilst your pursuers are up. You will shout as they come in, turn around and all 5 pursuers will hit your target along with a prospective dark bead. Once at low hp you may wish to retreat and menu swap to your Red Tearstone Ring. You will now hit like a truck, retreat to enemies etc; and you may wish to buff them. Now with your CT you can play it safe whilst in RTSr (Red Tearstone Range) and poke your enemies for damage in the 600-s - 700's. Or if they're low hp you may wish to do a dash attack with your flamberge for a solid 900 damage. Remember you have the auxiliary sorceries. The CSS's will be best used when having lured enemies to buffed packs as they will focus on the monsters instead of you and can only choose to dodge your Soul Spears or the monsters attacks. Either of these will hit them for an insane amount of damage.

    Good Luck!

    These look evil enough for you?
    http://tinyurl.com/bkzfsf2(Pyro, mid roll, heavy strenth)
    http://tinyurl.com/b7gwod6 (Sorc, fast roll, dex)

    That is my personal favourite evil armor, play around with it and customise to your tastes
    As always the second ring slot is free so you can put in what you like

    Hope it helps

    Thinking of turning the character into a Dark Wraith, RP-ish thing... Here's what I have right now http://mmdks.com/8o6 . Kind of undecided as to what weapon upgrading path to take, mainly deciding between Enchanted and Chaos. Any suggestions/improvements on this one?

    100.

    Playing on PC and I heard that there's not a lot of MP going on beyond that level...

    Also, by "what I have right now" I meant as in "target build" terms, the character is currently like lvl 30 or so.

    The Build Doctor - Page 3 Empty Str Build

    Post by Remembrance Thu Nov 15, 2012 11:07 pm

    Desired soul level: 120 or 125.
    Str or Dex: Str
    Class: Bandit
    How I will use the build: Fast rolling/back-flipping exclusively for pvp. I'll change my armor accordingly, I don't care about how much poise I end up with. But I'd obviously like to wear the best armor at the closest possible sweet spot at 25% I'll upgrade that armor set but I can't figure out which pieces of armor I need to choose.

    Probably faster to link to my stats/what I'm wearing.
    http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=441916745867784988

    I want to be able to roll at the fastest speed possible, actually, I'd like to use the cat ring at the new 25% cap. I've tried to figure out a way to do this, but I'm stumped about it. Note: I won't change my weapon, I like using it the most.

    Ending statement: My pvp character is pretty much finished. But I want to spend the last few points optimally. What do I need to do? Thanks big grin

    What I have right now = http://mmdks.com/902
    Target level = 80 or 100
    What I want = Whatever functional (PvE and PvP), could be completely different items, just don't want to delete the character so the stats can't be lowered. I like the damage of current weapon but not the speed. By the time my swing lands, most NPCs capable of dodging/jumping/whatever do so, making me miss and leaving my wide open for a strike. Alternatively, they hit me even before my swing lands.And that's NPCs, I don't want to think how annihilated I'm gonna get by invaders/in PvP.

    I'm going for either dex/int or dex/faith, SL 119 so I can invade pretty much anybody. I plan on using the Great Scythe +15 with buffs, and sometimes use the BSS if I get bored. I've got 2 different builds, but I can't decide which is better, so I can't start a new game yet. Any advice?
    I probably should add, I'm going for the most competitive pvp build possible.

    Dex/Int

    http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=126472197495178595

    Dex/Faith

    http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=389407224610763613

    I'm not an expert on this but I'd say go with Dex/Faith. It will be good for leveling as well, since you'll have available miracles such as Great Heal for when you run out of Estus or Homeward for farming. Also, Wrath of the Gods, a cheap tactic but pretty damn effective if you're about winning.

    Here's what I would do: http://mmdks.com/9fw

    I swapped out Darkmoon talisman for Canvas, since it has higher magic Adjustment = more power for your Sunlight blade and everything else. Also changed the armor a little. Although your resists go down a little, your Pdef and Mdef go up, as well as your poise. I got the poise to 77 so that you can poise through pretty much all 2H R1 attacks.

    BTW, if you're about numbers, your Sunlight blade buff is gonna do 1.8*175=315 additional damage. Your Crystal magic weapon with Tin Crystallization Catalyst would do 1.4*254=355 additional damage, at the cost of halving all your spell casts.

    Hope this helps.

    Desired Soul Level: 100 or more
    Str or Dex: str
    Favor Dmg, Vit, or End: dmg
    How you will use the build: melee mostly but i want to use some spells for protection/buff -> paladin?
    Other info you find useful: in my first play through i played as a sorcerer with 50 int and nearly no vit, i just had enough stats to wield a winged spear and i killed all bosses from range. this time i want to get close and personal. i play offline so SL dose not matter that much, "i am a mad grinder" happy
    Faith/Int? faith

    Str or Dex: preferably str
    Dmg, End or Stamina: all rouded

    Faith or mag: want to use abyss sword so will need a little of both but want to focus in one more

    Help me out with this one: http://mmdks.com/b5j
    Target lvl: 100
    The attunement is there just for the sake of being there, as I didn't know where else to put points. I want this to be a Dex build, kind of focus on bleed and parry. I also like the looks of the armor so I'd like to keep that. Any suggestions?

    Desired Soul Level: 100
    Str or Dex: whatever works here
    Favor Dmg, Vit, or End: preferably balance, but vit is least important, I prefer to not get hit
    How you will use the build: I want to make an OG build, preferably with some form of spellcasting for buffs and ranged options
    Other info you find useful: Aesthetics trump stats to me, but I want to fast roll if possible, if not I can make due with mid, going for an evil spellsword look
    Faith/Int: either, I have a small preference towards int but am willing to drop it all and go pyro if it is necessary
