Is my body ready?

Ok guys... I've been outta the game since the dlc dropped but picking it up again tonight (Dark Souls 2 videos has me itching to get back into the fray). I stomped the Sanctuary Guardian and haven't picked it up since... I used to run a sl 120 quality build for pvp... But after the patch negated my damage output and ninja roll I had to mix things up...

My question is... I have a current pvp build which I was having a TON of success with:

Faith\Dex build, balder side sword, sunlight miracle, wrath of the gods, sl 100

Is this build still going to be efficient with all the new dlc content out there? Or do I need to just start from scratch?

That's more or less how faith char is. Same wep. Same Wrath. Also faith/dex. Same weapon buff. Except I have a rapier off-hand to buff and then poke from behind a shield.

You still have 20 levels you can add and be in ideal PVP range. I'd suggest getting enough attunement to add Great Magic Barrier.

Level 100 pvp has died down alot since the patch. Might as well go to 125. Btw if you want quick builds look into Mega Mule.

A little effort here and there will serve you well, princess.

Also... Is this the most efficient build based around the bss?... I really love the moveset on this sword (that R2!).... I'm currently running a grass crest shield but I was really becoming a parrying machine when I stopped playing and I know the grass crest isn't the best option for this

Oh and it's about as good as you can get with faith. Average scaling is the best faith tends to get.

If you parry you should really use a rapier or knife tho.

BSS and wog combo good
WoG>R2>R2 will combo alot

To me the grass crest is a waste of weight, the dark hand/small leather shield will do the same thing when it comes to parrying.

Might switch to dark hand... Never even attempted using it

It weak and has bad range and one of the worst R2's.

Wouldn't suggest.
