Gameplay tips and progression

ok so this is my first build and i am new to the game so anything you dont like about this build feel free to tell me and why you dont so i understand that much more. i have not pvped much with this build at all and do not know how it would stand up to other builds but my way of thinking is your wepons greatly overpower shield users, you also have weapons with some good range for ppl with spears and such that just poke at you, you have the ability to stunlock opponents and of coarse you would have some high dmg hits to put them into defensive mode quick allowing you to time your attacks instead of pure offense leaving you open for attacks alot. all the gear and wepons i chose are only for my playstyle of coarse and may not be liked by others. im wearing black leather due to roll abilities and it also has great poison resistence for the poison cloud users which can be extremely usefull in this build due to the fact that you will need big heals at times and not ones thats being reduced from other affects. i know that i haven't explained much but like i said i am a new DS player and lack experience in the form of gameplay in this game and can't give detailed description on every detail as i am still figuring this out myself. thank you in advance for any help like/dislike and need to improve on this build you can give me.
