    My build is currently
    Rt1- Greatsword of Artorias +5
    Rt2- Pyromancy Flame(Ascended) +5/Heavy Crossbow +15(Heavy Bolt/Lightning Bolt)
    Lt1- Grass Crest Shield +14
    Lt2- Giant's Shield +14

    Spells: Fire Orb x2, Great Fireball x1, Fire Whip x1

    I use fully upgraded Giant's Set.
    With the Ring of Favor and Protection, and whichever ring I deem necessary for the task at hand, (Steel protection/fire/magic/lightning/cursebite/bleedbite/poisonbite...etc)
    I occasionally unequip the Ginat's shield, and use Havel's ring to allow for <50% equipload.

    I am SL 136 currently.
    My stats are:
    Vitality: 40 (For Tankiness)
    Attunement: 16 (For Pyromancy Augmentation)
    Endurance: 26 (For EquipLoad)
    Strength: 46 (For Damage)
    Dexterity: 34 (Damage)
    Resistance: 13 (Don't know why I put points in this...)
    Intelligence: 23 (GSoAPyroStrength)
    Faith: 20. (GSoA)


    Essentially, this was my first character, so I built him before I really knew what I wanted to do with him, sort of a Jack-of-all-Trades character. But am now trying to build him up to a SemiTanky STR build with pyromancy to give range/additional offense. Is this build salvageable/decent enough? Or should I just stick to PvE? Thanks for help/opinion.

    Its salvageable. but hardly ideal... for starters the GoA is a style choice not an effectiveness thing In PvP what you want to be looking for to start with is dump stats, generally either faith or int is one (resistance goes without saying) also your pyro's are not boosted by INT ignore that damn flames description such a source of confusion...
    Since you have already gone beyond 120 you could make it into a pretty decent 225 I suppose...

    Your mistake, you have 46 Str on a GSoA build. Why did you continue to level it up if it has C scaling??? Hm???? With that Str you can wield a demon weapon. But then you have Dex too...so use a katana or a Dex weapon as backup. The Int stat doesn't affect pyro spells. I suggest you continue playing with this build until you get all trophies and endings and then do a SL 120 build. If you need help just post and we'll help you.

    Thanks everyone. I figured it was a screwed build. It works nicely for bosses and stuff, but PvP just doesn't go well:(. I started a Dex build, and I feel like that should go over much better, considering I knew what i was doing from the get-go.

    I was just gonna finish all cheevos I could with him, and then probably use my DEX for PvP. Thanks again, I guess I'm glad I was right that it wasn"t worth saving:)

    As for the STR thing, I just wanted to start buffing up to try and make it into a STR build, maybe change my primary weapon, to something a bit heavier, and use a dex weap backup, like Wyrm said.
