Gameplay tips and progression

I know what you're thinking, NO ROLLING?!?! Well this build primarily focuses on damage mitigation. Tower Shield and Brushwood set does exactly that and with Warding your an unstopple force.

With high amounts of HP and very high defense you can take any kind of damage so there's no need for rolling. You can face opponents head on and with the great axe and its uninterruptible attack animation and knockdown you're sure to kill anything or anyone that moves or you can 2-hand mirdan hammer for that stunlock combo and also its uninterruptible R2 swing.

For stat points its obvious that VIT is key. END of 40 is so that you max stamina and high carry weight. Magic of 10 so that you can learn Warding from Sage Freke. STR for Tower Shield requirements.

So thats it my simple build haven't tested on PVP but I will sometime this week maybe :)
Open to constructive criticism.
