    People come to the forums all the time asking how they should make their build and, while I love to help, I find I'm always repeating myself. And it's really a pretty simple process that everyone should know. I don't think the wiki had a guide on creating your own build before, so I created one. Let me know what you think of it:

    Edit: maybe I should have just called it "character building tutorial"? silly

    I like it, it's light on numbers and heavy on concepts, this breeds a more creative outlook than a by the numbers approach where one is attempting to hit the desired values in xyz stats, good work!

    EDIT: and thanks to it, I now have a couple of great new ideas, thanks again for helping this dummy out!

    Of course! Link it wherever you think is appropriate. I already inserted a mention and a link on the dedicated PvP and PvE builds pages of the wiki.


    Edit: you're welcome nhbody!

    I wanted it to be simply educational, with as few numbers as possible. There's a few "40"s in there (End, Dex/ Str) but that's all. I tried to be as light on details as possible too, to keep this basic, but I gave a few examples and details here and there. It could definitely be deeper.

    Now that I think about it, was that PvP section ever created? I could make a more advanced version for more experienced players which could go into the University, if you guys would like that.

    I put it up in the opening section, you're more than welcome to move it as I have area's for PvE and PvP tips. I just felt it'd do best near the top.


    EDIT: You may want to consider linking these two pages on the page.

    1. http://darksouls.itsthatguy.com/ basic character planner.

    2. https://sites.google.com/site/darksoulstats/home class select calculator's and damage/maj adjust calculators.

    anything more on the topic would be much appreciated by me and I'm sure others, so a "university" guide would be awesome, that said, I think what you have is enough to get one's creative juices flowing, which is more important to me than the number crunching side of things

    @Err

    They're already there! I'll add the short descriptions though, sure.

    @nh

    I'll start getting a few ideas together.
