I done this around 10 times now so i could really use your help.
I am trying to create a character with a kind of Dnd Rogue/assassin feel to it
In demon souls i had the most fun with my dex builds and my light weapon blueblood sword build so i am trying to build a similar character in dark souls.
Here is what i need help with
The build need around 40 vit and around 40 end with a primary focus on dex
i would really love to use either the dark set or the lord blade set from the dlc. Preferably with as light roll even if i can handle medium roll.
And of course with as close to 56 poise as possible.
I need you help and input on choosing between dex/int which i have never used and dex/faith which i have used but never got to work properly.
I am sick and tired of using katanas as my main weapons and are looking at using the pained guardian sword as my main buffable weapon with the gold tracer as a none buffable option. For variety i am looking at a fire weapon/chaos weapon and need input on if i should use a balder sword or a rapier for some sweet thrust and backstab damage.
So far all my characters have ended up with the silver knight shield as their main defense with the crest shields as options against magical attacks and fire.
But since i have not played around with much more shields then the classical balder shield/heater shield/hollow/tower kite and spider shield i wonder if there are any options i could use with decent stability and lower str then the classical 14 for silver knight and 16 for black knight shields.
Also i would love to get some tips on good low weight weapons to upgrade to divine to use in the tombs and catacombs. Or if i should use the silver knight spear.
I hope you people can give me some input and tips
