So im starting a strength build. Want to make a 120-125 SL character. I like to PvP and I don't like pyromancy so any advice on where I should put my stats and how much should I put into strength? --- GT "NATHAN245"
To answer your question, you have to make a decision on whether you plan to be two-handing or one-handing a lot. Strength stops scaling well after 40, so the only reason to bring it up to 50 is to use a select few weapons with super duper high requirements.
If you only plan to ever two-hand, then 27/28 Str is fine because when you two hand you artificially create a situation where your Str is 1.5x higher, or in other words 40.
There is a benefit to one-handin though and it is that you have full access to your weapons movesets and greatshields can be used.
Unless you plan on using a specific weapon you should not bring your strength above 40. --- "Wait how did Delita destroyed history?" - ULoki
