|Build summary||Pure melee build that uses the power of blessed and crushing weapons.|
|Recommended starting class(es)||Priest|
|Recommended Soul Level||125-130|
Recommended stats (Leave at default (**) if not raised)
Due to high endurance, can wear different armors in combo with each other or if you prefer, wearing just the full set of one. To each their own as I say.
-My reasoning of increasing endurance past 40 is for higher bleeding, but mainly higher fire resistance) While some may disagree greatly in increasing endurance past 40 since stamina only goes to 160, I've seen many players uskng fire spells such as ignite, firestorm even firespray where extra endurance comes in handy.
-Full Old Doran's Set, for highest fire defense(love using against ignite, fireball, firestorm even those deadly and yes I say DEADLY firespray skilled players. Another plus is the Old King's armor does not slow down endurance recovery rate.
-Full Brushwood(provides highest physical defense, out of three)
-Full Dark Silver (best magic defense)
Choice of weaponry; Because of the plethara of weapons to choose from (two weapons you should NOT use are Great Sword and Great Axe) in the blessed and crushing upgrades, the three named are my personal choices that I've found to have good success with.
Shields; Adjudicator, DSS, or Knight(DSS and knights for parrying)
Rings-Soul; foe's and cling
Miracles:(have four available slots)
Spells; While curse takes up all three slots, should I decide to mix things up, using other spells instead, this build has the following choices which make sense to use:
Not a fan of clouds not only bec it can cause lag, but for me, challenging myself and taking on top PVP players, the need for speed,a nd skill, while not using clouds to try to diminish your is something I aim towards.
|Gameplay tips and progression||
This build is used for the following serious serious reasons; duration(lasting longer than opponent without grassing!!(although others may disagree with me:), strategic, tactical purposes, and finally, while unlike a vanilla plain Jane faith build, gives that extra wham bam thank you…umphhh! kick to it by the power of crushing weapons in your arsenal. Adds that Extra spice to add flavor baby. While strength stat is not as high as faith, when using curse buff with crushing +5 weapon, yu bet it will hand out a good spanking.
BTW-I recently looked over this build because I have to say, Dan_7 created his own version without looking at my stats at all. I give full credit to him as he allocated his stats much better for this caliber of build than I recently did.
If anyone has any questions, or direct advice, I am very open-minded and will respond via personal message, or on board.
Just want to mention on a more serious note, Not sure if I should mention this, but because I am a serious DS player, but not a forum member, or one that has seen all the different types of builds mentinoed, I apologize if I somehow "stepped on anyone elses' toes". I know alot of builds are considered cookie cutter, vanilla, etc…
