    To start off things like this should be posted in the player help or pvp section of the forum.


    Now to help you out. There are really no hard set rules on how to build your character but there are some things to consider.

    First off, if this is your first character I'd recommend over leveling and experimenting with weapons and spells to see what you like, once you know what you like you can better focus your build.

    Secondly, consider that stats have diminishing returns after 40, sans dex and int/fth but I'll get to that in a second. Generally for a melee build you want vit and end at 40, you can get away with as low as 30 if you'd like.

    Now, you're going for a dex/int build. First you must consider what weapon you'd like to use and its base stats. This is how far you must take dex/str to use the weapon. Since you're using a dex build str is the only stat you must be frugal with. Also, consider what spells you would like to use, this will tell you the minimum int you need for your character. It will also tell you how much att you need to have.

    Lastly, its is often smart to take dex to 45 as this gives you the fastest casting times. Int can be taken to 50 easily for use of high damaging sorceries and maximum damage out of weapon buffs.

    thanks a ton, my posting here was more or less accidental, but yeah, I have been playing the game for a while now, but this is the first time I've really been interested in pvp

    Then you should be fine hahaha. I'd recommend checking out the wiki's weapon and armor pages to get idea's of where you endurance and str should fall.

    Also this site is very helpful.

    alright, i've been working on this for a while, and here's what I've got so far
    V:30
    A:23
    E:25
    S:17
    D:45
    R:12
    I:50
    F:8
    haven't quite settled on my weapons, but i figure an enchanted Uchigatana will do nicely then the crystal catalyst then maybe a chrest shield or some such,
    for armor I've been thinking Mask 'o child (even though it's frowned upon) the Elite knight's armor, Havel's Gauntlets, shadow leggings, the Darkwood grain ring, and the Ring of Favor and protection. any thoughts or suggestions?

    Many hahaha.

    First off, go with a weapon +15 and lower your str. I'd recommend an uchi, falcion, schimitar ex. The better the dex scaling the more base damage you'll have. Next I'd recommend using cmw as your main sorcery. Buff that uchi and you'll be dealing massive damage. Change one of the rings (dwgr I'd suggest) to the bellowing dragoncrest ring, then use the crown of dusk or darksun on your head. With this combo you'll be dealing massive damage. Don't worry about poise and focus more on dodging attacks.

    Also why do you need such high ATT? Just get as much ATT for the few spells you will need and if you want to use other spells just switch. If you take points away from your STR and ATT you can put them in your VIT which is really low for PvP. IMO. I think ErrJon covered everything else well, However, make sure your RES is base also, add the points to VIT

    It depends if your looking to stay in the strict SL120 build. I have a Dex/faith build that is SL140 but could easily be deleveled in a few spots. the faith could be switched to Int easily

    Vit: 40

    Att: 19? or whatever gets 5 slots

    End: 40 wouldn't recommend less unless your going heavy into casting

    Str: 20 could be reduced to 16 easily or lower if your going to use a uchi

    Dex: 40 could go higher but the returns aren't very impressive plus I had to stop somewhere

    Faith: 40 for all the useful miracles and good buffs could easily switch to Int sorry couldn't use CSS or dragon breath but both are not overly useful in pvp

    I'd second the +15 weapon over enchanted because better AR plus CMW or SMW is better then enchanted with right catalyst
