|Build summary||Crushing Guillotine axe vitality gouge build|
|Recommended starting class(es)||Temple Knight - female|
|Recommended Soul Level||125|
Recommended stats (Leave at default (**) if not raised)
This is a two handed crushing vit gouge build that is recommended for players who can dodge and time their attacks properly. The point in 34 strength is not maximizing the damage output from a single hit rather than doing insane damage with the two handed stunlock of the guillotine axe. Dragon bone smasher also suits perfectly to the build though.
armor: Binded set (like Miralda), dull gold armor (right hand slot 2 should be empty in order to roll properly)
Master's ring is especially suitable for this build since almost every hit with the guillotine axe is a direct hit, combined with a cursed weapon one full combo could exceed 2500 mark (not even in hyper mode)
Spells: Cursed weapon or warding + cloak
|Gameplay tips and progression||
The problem with the guillo axe is the lack of range. Therefore stalking your enemy and ambushing them in the right time (do not backstab with the axe - the damage is probably the worst possible in the game) is essential for the build (kind of stealth strength build). Use cloak when invading (and sticky white stuff + warding as a buff after stealth mode is broken) and hidden soul when hosting. Or fight like a man without hiding and use cursed weapon and second chance switching between the claymore and the guillo axe.
