58 STR to 1-hand Smough's Hammer(s). 10 DEX so I can use a lot of other strength weapons when this gets boring after 5 minutes. 50 VIT. Put the remaining points into END. Ghost blade used to parry. Jagged Ghost Blade used for lolcartwheels with toward+R1. Armor is Fashion Souls, with the only requirements being midroll and 31 poise. Accomplishing this at exactly 50% equip burden made me feel super warm and hella fuzzy.

I can't wait to make this build. Losing at PvP will be even more fun than usual.

You can do so much better armour wise. With the right setup, you can save 2-3 points as well as boost your poise by 5-6 points AND you can do this whilst walking the lordran catwalk.

For some reason I really like having exactly 50%. What is the point of having a little bit more poise if it doesn't get you to the next "breakpoint"? Does it affect how quickly the "meter" builds back up? I don't think I really understand poise.
