    My first build with 40 Str + 40 Dex. Will probably use some kind of resin as a weapon buff for the Broadsword (which can be swapped with Balder sword if need be). Can also add different options for Pyro, but the two I have listed are my favorite and seem to work best for pure PvP situations. I managed to reach 53 poise while still keeping the fast roll big grin I never make builds with the flip. Just a weird preference. Let me know how you think this build will play out, and what adjustments I can make to it. Thanks happy

    Sure, I really like 40/40 builds now. I start as Warrior and have 50 VIT 40 END/STR/DEX, and ignore all magic, it puts me at 125, so with a little suck off VIT you can use some magic too. Magic does get the 40 DEX cast speed bonus nicely as well.

    It's hard for me to tear myself away from using sorcery or miracles. But I'm interested in seeing how the raw damage plays out. Who knows.

    I think DEX or STR weapons (E-D/B-S or B-S/E-D) weapons are better for more magical love, since they get so much of their strength from just one of the stats, but adding some magic into a 40/40 is a good thing, it only takes 2 SL to get Great Combustion, that seems like a winner to me.

    Washing pole +15 is best weapon for a 40/40 build imo

    Not using MURA on 40/40? ShoggyDiggity ect.ect.

    Claymore is a good choice too, and the Demon's spear is often overlooked though it does have C/C scaling making it the best spear for 40/40 builds The Zwei is just a big non trusting claymore on 40/40 builds but it can be usefull if you don't like trusting attacks (why don't you?)

    This is the 40/40 I use, but it's for 130 with a couple friends, droping 2-4 attunment and some Vit wont make it suffer all too much so it'd be easy to drop it to 125 or 120

    I would add, that it has the highest AR at 40/40 (Demon Spear), but I wouldn't call it the best, it depends on a lot of factors, but I'd choose the Winged Spear over it, but the Demon's has the great range too.

    You are right it's split damage can be a let down at times, but no other spear has C/C scaling and happens to be the longest poking tool in the history of poking tools. (Winged Spear carried me through my first playthrough, it was my best friend) I think the Pike is interesting as well, heck almost any of the spears are good enough to use on a 40/40 except MLBH
