|Build summary||A high vit gouged faith build that uses blessed knight's sword with LSOM as backup. Simple yet challenging PVP build and rewarding to win with|
|Recommended starting class(es)||Priest|
|Recommended Soul Level||125|
Recommended stats (Leave at default (**) if not raised)
Females:Bind, Roughes, Black Leather sets.
Rings:Body form-Eternal, Regen, Ring of Fire Resistance(great ring to use with the ever increasing amount of mags', dragon weapon MH user out there), Ring of Magical Dullness.
On to Weapons:
Second left hand Slot-TOB((only use if you are fighting those who are trying to feellll realllll good eating that grass, LOL. If not, cast SC, use TOG for casting God's wrath.
On a side note, while I know warding greatly reduces all backstab damage(works wonders against fatal weapons), the one thing I've been trying to figure out is whether equipping the LSOM on your back decreases any backstab damage from magic based weapons, and the dreadful backstab power fo the Northern Regalia. Because it provides defense when used to block aside from bypassing shields, I'm thinking it may be a viable tactic to use. Only issue, especially being red(black phantom) is it may look to much like morion blade on your back. If anyone wants PSN me.
Right hand slots: Main weapon: Blessed Knights
Question for anyone who may know or have used-Ever duel wield two LSOM? Understand it would be extremely slow in left hand slot, but could finish off opp. who are low in HP, and could be pretty unexpected to go from using shield, to a LSOM. Just a thought.
Spells: Warding-Good for co-op play for many levels against physical enemies. Useful versus curse weapons, but wouldn't recommend using pre Second Chance. If you like duels that consist of limited grass, pre-fight casting, by casting this over SC, your opponent more likely than not, especially players who have been around for awhile, will whip out a nice northern Regalia, weapon and buff with SWS, or Black Turp, or Dragon weapon. Even with this high vitality, I recommend sticking with Second Chance in "fair duels">
If you don't get dupe souls from others, and like the challenge of still playing through each level, miracles such as antidote, heal, cure(Great to use in the slums and swamps of 5-2 if you prefer not duping or equpping tons of lotus', or do not have any DMG as of yet.)

While there are varying opinions regarding dimished gains after mainly reaching 50 in any stat, the only time you should IMO take a stat past 50 is if you are planning to take it to 65. Past that, would be difficult to do while still being in the popular PVP zone, and having a strong build. Only exceptionos would be high vit, NR, Dragon, Makoto builds. Theoretically, however, by taking your stats even further than 65-70, the next number you'd have to hit to avoid dimishing gains would be 90.
