Depends on what kind of PvP you're looking for, random invasions can go a bit lower as you'll rarely find yourself against someone geared up for PvP. However I'm with HK, 40vit with RoFaP is bare bones minimum for any kind of serious dueling, moreso if you're up against anyone of skill. I love fighting those who "never get backstabbed," always so salty...
You are putting yourself at a great disadvantage by having such low vit. The only build style I could see running with anything lower than ~1500 hp is if you are running a glass cannon of sorts... --- YOU SO BEST PSN - westergoon, because I'm tall... and goonish...
Well, I may as well finish assembling Voltron here and throw my opinion in here.
HK and Co. are right, imo. Anyone that says more HP vs less HP is not an advantage is deluded. Of course it's an advantage. That's like say more money is worse than less money (please spare everyone your outrageous random scenarios regarding this).
You can't fully protect yourself from lag, and more HP is able all you've got to do that with. --- Posts in a topic do not have to be on topic if it goes with the natural flow of conversation.- Baseman (Moderator)
The misinformation to me would be that you are proficient at avoiding backstabs. EVERYONE gets backstabbed, regardless of skill. What works for random invasions will not pass in most dueling scenarios. --- I am gonna pound you so gross later.

I agree with the 1500 HP baseline. I would consider that the minimum for a SL100 arena build, a 125 should be even higher imo. I can hit for 1500 on a backstab with hornet ring great club +15 with lightning resin depending on the armor you are wearing, and that only requires 27 STR. --- \o/ Administering jolly ass-whoopings everyday. .||
I've been able to do quite well with 30 Vit and the fap ring, and I am by no means an expert PvPer.
It sucks to get hornet-stabbed by a Lightning Great Axe, but **** happens.
Don't scrap a fun build idea out of worry that you might lose every now and then due to a lucky lagstab.
I agree. Go with what u like.
Great thread btw. The ironic thing about it is that all the people saying 1500hp+ cant have certain builds with that amount of hp, or the build is severly gimped. Good dex/faith requires 40/50 respectively. Show me 1500 hp on that build, and ile show u a flawed build or a slvl 140. --- psn- Clubber_Lang_Jr
hak145 you will get backstabbed playing against other good players. EVERYONE gets backstabbed. Fighting randoms is not a good way to judge how much hp you need when dueling other good players, since then I would say base vitality is just fine and its a useless stat.
Also dude who said ' x hits for y damage', you arent hitting anyone with your dragon tooth 2hr2 bro, even if it hit for 9999 damage it wouldnt matter.
IMO 1500 is the least I would recommend for dueling depending on your build but I very much like to get at LEAST 2000 on my duel builds (1980 to be precise, 50 vit+fap+mom), and as I said, for random invading or dicking around even 800-900 is fine. --- GT - Dex Pyromaniac http://www.youtube.com/user/Dexpyro <===== Dark Souls stuff
