Gameplay tips and progression

Basic leveling same as Meat cleaver build. Try get to weilding that big boy quickly.

I built this character to see if I could make a basic melee character that could survive PvP and PvE.

Basics are be patient during the game. Block and move alot and do crappy pokes while shield is up. For Pvp after 10-12 scraps their armour should be ruined. Depends on type of player, you can go in for kill with meat cleaver or utterly destroy them with spear. This is not for people who want to burn through people, this is very defencive. I make sure all their equipment is ruined (one guy went through 6 weapons against me).

Magic builders I kill easily with meat cleaver 1 or 2 shot normally does it. The only problem I have ever had is with firestorm, but your bow works well in this situation, hit them once then charge in with a MC attack.

Having the graverobbers ring on as soon as you are being invaded can allow you to take alot of HP when then run into your R2 MC attack. I almost one shotted a full mage with dps gear on.

Also having regen and/or cure helpful for quick dispells if your cheap on the Darkmoon grass's and lotus's.

This is my 1st build and I only have had trouble with flamelurker and Old Hero everyone else got pwned. Just blick with shield and counter with an heavy attack.

If you have any tips/questions feel free to ask.

My 120 build will be:

Vitality 35

Will/Intelligence **

Endurance 40

Strength 50

Dexterity 35

Magic **

Faith 18

Luck **

But not 100% sure
