|Gameplay tips and progression||
This build is more just for fun, but it can be deadly if mastered for pvp. It combines the Penetrating Sword's longer reach than other straight swords with SWS, buffing your weapon to give you an advantage in pvp situations. The Wanderer is your starting class; it provides you with a handsome amount of Luck and Dexterity.
Starting out, this build is going to look weird. You can't get the Penetrating Sword until you've beaten an Arch Demon from one of the other 4 worlds and even with that the level it's in is a common place for invasions. BUT, since this build can also be considered a Dex build, take full advantage of using other weapons that scale with dexterity ex. Curved Swords, Katanas, Sharp Weapons, etc…
The Penetrating Sword +5 will has an A rank in Dexterity, giving you an excellent physical dmg bonus from the low base of 90. SWS will provide you a 110 magic dmg bonus, which will provide very useful for pvping users with Warding or againsts Bosses with low magic defence ex. Flamelurker. A PS +5 has a long reach and better piercing attacks than most Straight Swords, giving you an advantage against enemies weak to pierce attacks.
Have fun with this class, make the Penetrating Sword a deadly weapon.
