What do you guys think of something like this?

High faith with an emphasis on miracles and pyromancy, and a Divine Claymore to fall back on for melee.


Not a bad idea, but having less than 36 poise isn't a good idea for pvp. And also, good luck hitting players that are actually good with lighting spears.

So guys, What about this? GLASS CLERIC

Good idea, but a few problems.
You want 36 poise at least if you are pvping, less than that is a waste, I'm sure theres a different armor combo that would get you there.
And also lighting spears... are not easy to hit with, against a good player you won't even land one, better pick a different miracle!

How about this guys? GLASS CLERIC

I don't really like it. You hit too few of the important stat break points whether its dex for faster casting, recommended vit, poise etc. 50 Faith and a ring slot with Crown of Dusk but only two damage Miracles, one of which is nigh useless in PvP.

Chaos Fireball is also questionable, more so without 45 Dex. It has its uses but at 2 Attunement slots, I'd rather see an extra 6 vitality or dexterity. On the other hand, if I was to make a build like this I'd probably skip Dex all together given a divine weapon's scaling doesn't really need it.

I suggest going for two Wraths or, if you must have something with more range then pick Emit Force. Sure, it is still easily dodged but it is a bit quicker, will push targets and has an AoE. You can smash at your feet, unlocked as a surprise or just practice throwing the thing unlocked. Not spectacular, but is a bit more viable from my experience with it and Lightning Spear in PvP.

Gombustion or even Fire Tempest in place of GCFB.
