Gameplay tips and progression

Refer to other builds such as the Strength Build for common progressions

If you don't use Mirdan hammer or uchi, dex should stay at 8 so you can get the most of LW.

This is sort of like a BBS build but you also have other Crushing weapons you can enchant.

I found it annoying when builds that use Curse Weapon get destroyed by those who use Warding. This build is a solution. Although Faith builds can still be a problem because of high magic defense but it's certainly better than fighting it while they use Warding against Curse Weapon. CW did really little damage.

AR doesn't increase that much after Strength is 40 due to diminishing returns… Also, 2 handling it gives 1.5 multiplier giving it 60 Strength in total. Other than that, the build is reminiscent of a standard Strength Build.

Will provide more info if rating goes up.
