    Due to lore, and the fact that I just do not want to be stuck with the RoFaP, I have to have 48 endurance to light roll. Oh, and I don't want to wear the DWGR. I don't need any more stats into anything else, So I don't really think the 8 points are wasted.

    Any of you guys have any ideas? I want to keep the same armor on.

    Drop dex to 14. Just saved you 26 points. No point in putting into dex if you are gonna use chaos. I imagine you or someone else will say it is to increase pyro cast speed. But if thats the only reason. I think its a waste.
    And as you are not using rofap, you may as well vit gouge.

    The only thing i would do is switch to a straight +15 flamberge so you don't have to split damage...thats just me though...other than that it looks good.

    I don't want to call you an idiot, but... Look Skyward It makes a huge difference. I've had a character without 40 dex and a character with 12 dex. It's.. just.. HUGE. Plus, if I choose to do so, I can use a dex based weapon.

    yea dont drop the dex, especially since you're using pyro and a flamberge. only thing i would suggest is using a +15 flamberge, you will do better dmg since it scales mainly with dex. +15 does 445 pure physical dmg while chaos 469 dmg, but thats split into two different types of dmg and two different defenses you will have to go through. if you are using a claymore or bastard sword then go chaos +5. i like it, its very similar to my pretty much favorite build. http://tinyurl.com/7esuwgf


    edit:might not be a bad idea to do what i do and just use steel gauntlets and heavy boots, it will give you an extra 1.8 pounds(for a bow or rapier ext)

    Casting speed. I very much disagree, pyromancy with under 30 dex just doesn't work. I've tried. A lot actually, you never hit anything. Minimum 30 dex for your pyromancer joe.

    Its a sl 80, not a 120, but I've been really successful with mine.

    Poision mist, great fireball, great combustion, fire surge, and fire tempest are my spells. Though for dues I might change them, barely use gfb really. Fire surge and fire tempest are most of my kills.

    Sadly, I didn't grab Fire Surge on my first playthrough. Is it worth having two is is one good enough? I like having two tempests XD I'm not allowed any spell that isn't fire. Any mists or buffs is out. Only one I can use is Flash Sweat. (Covenant kind of thing)

    Fire surge is great. 2 would be cool, but 1 is enough for it to do its job. Its mostly pressure and bs punishing when I use it. They fish, you unlock and spin in place. It looks stupid but it works.

    You can’t buy tempest from Quelana. She either gives it to you when you have completed her "task" (killing BoC) or you get it when you kill her.

    http://tinyurl.com/6t5nosr - for faster casting speed - I personally also would swap once at low hp - the wolf ring for the RTSr. It will make you basically OHKO people with pyromancies.
