|Gameplay tips and progression
First of all I'll explain the stats:
50 VIT: Standard for PvP
18 INT: 3 Spell Slot option to add Poison Cloud with LW. Otherwise leave at 14 and wear Silver Coronet
26-28 END: This is all you really need to effectively use Daggers and Estoc
10 STR: 1 point above Royal Default. You need this to 2H a Kilij. If you are not using a kilij, STR can be left at 9 and used elsewhere
48-50 DEX: Self Explanitory
30 MAG: LW returns diminish beyond this
16 FTH: For SC
7 LCK: Don't see a need to explain this
1. LW Daggers demolishes Warding Users.
2. Very fast weapons, gives you speed advantage over most other builds.
3. Great harrassing capabilities.
4. Multiple lethal combos. BS's and ripostes will instantly crack SC on any build 50 VIT or less with LW active.
1. Big Melee Range disadvantage
2. Lack of versatilty on melee weapon choices
3. Lots of farming required (especially for Pure Bladestone) unless you find a duping partner.
