    Next

    http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=3825021893620730

    Keep in mind that elementals will hit 2 defenses before doing damage. Having high AR hitting one defense is better overall.

    If your gonna use pyro then have your dex at 45 on the second one. That's basically the point of a dex build, to speed up casting. Weapons are just a bonus.

    You can buff. golden pine resin happy not the most powerful thing ever but certainly better than nothing. and straight dex ... katana and painted guardian sword maybe?

    What are your spells going to be? You have 23 att, once you get above 16, then it becomes more costly to add more spell slots, so it had better be worth it.

    What spells are you going to choose? The first build doesn't have any selected. The second one still has one slot left. Maybe Crown of Dusk for more spell power?

    As far as the best Dex weapon, it matters more on you and less on the weapon. Washing Pole and Chaos Blade seem to be popular. But, any Dex weapon can be awesome in the right hands. Play around with a few and find out.

    Great Fireball (2)

    Fire tempest

    The stats look alright. If you're using the DWGR and going for a pure Dex build, it's not very hard to make it work!

    Check my Jackal build (link in my sig) for a list of good Dex weapons.

    Because I don't have enough slabs for all my weapons! That toon has all those in her inventory, and I swap them when I get bored with one, or when I'm fighting the same person again and I want to keep things interesting.

    Whatever weapon you really like, spend a slab on and take it to +15. The rest, it's really not a big difference to leave at +14.

    The best pyros I see are GC, GF, and Fire Surge. Chaos Fireball is nice, but doesn't do more damage than GF (except the Lava adds some damage) and it uses up 2 slots.

    I often see it used when people get too close. It does chip damage, but you can continuously spray it. Basically, it changes timing. Fireball is slow and powerful, GC is fast and short, Fire Surge is fast and long.

    i wouldnt use the dragon slayer spear if you arent going to put anything into faith. i would say use either the pike(if your going to put 24 str) or use the silver knight spear and save on str. also i think the chaos fireball is the best pyro spell, its more then just dmg you can use the lava in smaller areas to control your opponent. practice aiming fireballs without lock-on. its very very hard/rare you will hit a skilled player with a fireball while locked onto them.

    meh i dont even know where else to put those points if i drop strength, ill just alternate between pike,silver knight spear, and DSS.

    what route should i follow with the pike ? elemental or +15 ?

    And also for that build im just going for looks while trying to somewhat be effective in PvP

    +15 for the pike with those stats. i guess if you're just going for looks nothing wrong with the dss, demon's spear is only slightly better with those stats.
