|Build summary||Fun PVE build that can be used in PVP rather effectively using Kris blade for pure magic damage backstabs|
|Recommended starting class(es)||Temple Knight|
|Recommended Soul Level||130|
Recommended stats (Leave at default (**) if not raised)
Armor: Very very very light: Full Shamans, Black Leather for males
Shields: Knight's +10, Adjudicators. The reason I invested one point into strength are for two reasons: Ability to use knight's shield for blocking physical hits, and being able to use a bow(preferrably a long bow+10) for PVE.
Rings: BODY FORM: ETERNAL/REGEN ETERNAL/RING OF MAGICAL SHARPNESS
Depending on how comfortable you are with a dramatic decrease in HP while trying to help a host beat a level, using ring of sharpness with friends gives a further boost in your spell damage,. Because the Kris Blade is pure magic, it stacks with the ring as well and gives it's phyiscal/melee fighting style an increase in the amount of damage it deals.
You may be wondeing why choose warding, if you have SC you can use along with not just one by the ability to equip two spells when not using warding.
|Gameplay tips and progression||
This is a pretty unique build I came up with. While I wouldn't say it is the strongest by any means, it can cause some big time magic damage on PVP opponents and in game enemies(PVE, or co-op play)
While there are a great deal of pro's, there's also some downfalls that while you can avoid if using this build cleverly, sneaky and creatively, should you get hit for example with a blessed +5 Mirdan Hammer combo, you're pretty much "light's out"
In conclusion my fellow DS slayers, playboys, players, playgirls, sexy mama's, hahaaaa..:/ Don't be scared to use this build aggressivley, using sneaky instant runs, combining lock on and lock off(pivot) backstabs, roll backstabs and even hitting with kris blade(does decent damage with a two three hits combo). Know how to use push into a splsttering, splashing FB or Ignite with the Kris blade against trollocs, escaping and rolling out from combo's and even as a tool to push in "fair duels" yes, I said it. While I am not one that likes winning just by a push combo into another, uchhummm this is directed towards you "silly Katana Pushers" as someone would say. Don't be a wiseass. Winning by Pushing is for kids, just like Tricks. That being said, push with Kris blade is like cereal with milk. Tasty, delicious but with a fair balance when using the two.
Come on baby light my Kris Blade
