Blessed Great Axe: Pretty common weapon for faith build. 90% of the attack animation cannot be stopped.
Blessed Great Sword: Like the great axe, it is a common weapon for a faith build. Attack animation can be stopped, but has more knockdown power than the great axe.Two Handed!
Blessed Guillotine Axe: Awesome roll attack! Pretty deadly if u ask me.
Dark Silver Set: Good Magic Defense
DSS: Best Magic defense out of all shields. Perfect for battle with mages.
If you prefer more hp regen use Adjudicator Shield +5
Eternal Warrior's Ring, Ring Of Great Strength.
You can consider raising your dex to 18 so you are able to wield Istarelle. Though I personally wouldn't prefer it you can still use it. I only don't like Istarelle is because it is a spear. And many people use spear with shields, which i hate.
|Gameplay tips and progression||
Some of you may ask why I chose the dark silver set? Well, the DS set has great magic defense, which makes the person excel in battles against mages. Especially with the DSS, you can block the enemies magic attacks. For the physical enemies. The DS set already has decent defense and with the 55 endurance, that can help a lot. With 50 VIT, 55 END, the DS set, and the DSS, you can survive a couple of hits from a normal weapon. Some of you can't decide whether to use Second Chance or Warding. Well, Second Chance can help a lot since my build has a decent amount of VIT. This build was more towards the magic defense side. Warding can help a lot, but I would just advise you to roll! Rolling is essential to almost all builds. Sure you can block some enemies, but if you face someone with a large sword like DBS, your screwed. Most people know how to deal with physical enemies, but magicial enemies. Many people have trouble with these guys because many people think about complete defense, but when they face a mage they finally realize they don't have enough faith to have good magic defense to protect them from a magic attack.
