|Build summary||A build that uses the CT stacked NR for max damage using blessed weapons as it's sidekick.|
|Recommended starting class(es)||Temple Knight|
|Recommended Soul Level||125|
Recommended stats (Leave at default (**) if not raised)
Males: Old King Doran's, Black Leather, Shaman's, Brushwood(legs), Gloom(legs, arms witth black leather set)
Like the LSOM, Istarelle is a good option against turtles and goes well with the NR's short range. Deals 99.9% MAGIC DAMAGE even when meeting the dex requirements which by not meeting them, in actuality is benefitical.
Regarding heavier blessed weapons: Look below under gameptips section.
Shields: Adjudicators(Good to throw on back for HP recovery. Stacks with blessed weapons, and regen ring. Great to use if two handing a weapon and playing passive/aggressive.
Phantom form: BP invader-Foe's, Cling
While in body form, you still can use the NR even though it stacks with CT(which supposedly only stacks in soul form.) Aside from never truly understanding how one in body can use CT based weapons, nevertheless, I recommend body form hosts having pure white instead of pure black.
Phantoms:If invading, or dropping red eye stone-Pure black Character Tendency
NR does total of 540 max damage with right Char. Tendency.
Spells:(2 slotss)Recommend Warding
Faith(4 slots) Recommend Second Chance(always have it equipped) along with your choice of;
|Gameplay tips and progression||
This build if used properly is deadly. A combo of verocious magic and physical damage from the backstabs of the NR, parries, and critical hits(push into hit)
The reason I am not recommending using these weapons is because this build uses the NR as a main weapon. Here's some reasons why each one is risky using in sync with NR:
Great Axe: Great blessed version with most faith builds, sick "ground and pound" damage. With this build using the NR as a main, as mentioned, try going with a weapon that has long reach(Mirdan Hammer) or a lighter faster weapon such as the knight's sword that plays well with the NR side by side.
Guillotine-One of the most difficult stunlocks to get out of, but also to get caught in.
Great Sword-Similar in terms of reach, arch(hit box) to Claymore. Even more powerful, but much heavier, and slower. Not a good choice to use with the already heavy NR.
recommend a faster swinging one to go in sync with the NR's slow hitting ,vicious backstab, critical hit damage.
with this build is because it isn't a typical faith build, but using the NR in combo with blessed weaponsBlessed Great Axe-"Strong Ground and Pound" damage, powerful weapons, but when used with an already heavy, slow hitting, yet even higher damaging weapon such as NR, using those tow together is basically setting you up to get backstabbed quite often.
Great Sword-Long reach, wide arch hitting box, yet again, like Great Axe, doesn't make it all hot and sweaty to want to use with the NR.
Guillotine Axe-Fast, vicious stunlock(probably one of the hardest to get out of if caught in, yet because of it's short range, extremely difficult to get someone inis not a great fit with NR-Not that it isn't doable, there are just more options in the blessed weapon category that IMO is better to use with the slow swing, short range NR.
