Right now I'm using a +5 fire dagger, +5 lightning club, or +10 hand ax. I like using the +5 fire dagger the most, because, you know, parries.
In the off hand I'm either using the parry dagger, wooden shield, or my +5 ascended pyromancy. Thankfully parry dagger still parries even without the correct stats.
From there I was wondering if anyone had interesting ideas for weapons or armors to use. I was personally thinking of building an elemental crossbow as well, and messing around with different armors.
