With my sl150 faith/sorcerer, i have a 70% success rate. At 50 intelligence for crystal magic and bead, and 28 faith for WoG + Velka talisman, its a lot of fire power. Even if i die, im satisfied they wasted 10 flasks on me.
I run a 40/40 quality build with no magic whatsoever. My success rate is 70% in straight up duels and 30% when more than one person is present. The only time I won a match against three opponents was in burg. They were positioned to backstab me at spawn but I fastrolled down the stairs into the little room. I switched to the zwei while they were tentatively approaching the stairs. I went up the stairs and stun locked the host + both phantoms with the zwei. Needless to say they did not survive and I received a very salty message from the host a couple minutes later. He used the word "cheap".
First I buff with CMW then cast Pursuers and usually one shot either the host or phantom, afterwards try and sneak in Crystal soul spear. Switch my bellowing ring out for Wolf Ring for poise and parry the panicked host or BS him until he dies then I Look skyward and if indicted, spam "Very Good" carving on his death spot.
Success rate mostly depends on how well I execute everything, sometimes I mess up swapping stuff out and it gets me killed. But I always make the host flask/waste spells though, thats all that matters to me.
I have also taken out extremely high lvl players with this build (players able to cast GMB, WoG and high level sorceries) who drop around 870k souls.
Well sticking to topic before it goes.....off topic, probably.........5-10% success rate, having the base vitality of a thief class doesn't help my case. And I'm always trying different sort of role plays, but even when I don't, still the same rate.
