Running through NG for the 5th time now and trying out this build (my exact current setup save for my 4 armor pieces at +9 and my bow at +14):

based on this guy:

I checked the archives and couldn't find one build like this searching Iron Knight or Tower Knight, though I'm sure it's been done.

Just wondering your thoughts. Where should I take this guy next? I threw in some magic as well to add some spice.

I'm just about to fight Magnus next and, to be honest, I'm having a blast with this guy - fun to hit so hard and surprisingly effective.

Good choice! I see someone else is liking the greatshield greatsword classes

I did an Iron Tarkus run before, it was amazing



Also, you might consider getting a pyromancy flame and power within, power within is DAYUM good on tank builds

Cool. I have both so I might, but right now I'm doing so much raw damage on NG that I'm tearing through everything with ease. I just beat Magnus no problem. Probably on NG++ or something.

If it's a serious role-play build, lose the magic.

And the mid lol roll.

And the bow.

Put all those points into vit.

All of them.

Every one.

This indeed is a role-play build but I'm roleplaying a tower knight who got bored with being just a jock and decided to pay attention in school.

Mid roll = still very viable and fun to try something besides fast roll.

The bow is a strength bow and fits well with my character and is fun.

Vit I plan to get to 40 or 50 if I make it to 100/125. Otherwise, the plan is to buff up intelligence a bit more to have some more fun with a str/int build. Maybe add a 3rd attunement slot.
