It's pretty solid. There are a few things that I would not do if it were my build, but to each their own.

What I would do differently (take it with a grain of salt):
-I'd worry less about hitting the 53 poise break and go for the 31 or 36, freeing up some stats/weight.
-I'd put the pyro glove in the right hand in this case, so that I could free up a slot for a shield for parries and blocking. (I'd fast swap weapons through the inventory screen when I wanted to change).
-I'd make the Str 16 for the ability to wield a wider variety of weapons, particularly the Silver Knight Spear.
-Personal preference: I hate having more than 4 spells slotted because it's a pain to navigate mid fight. I'd drop attunement 1 slot for 3 stat points.
-I'd ditch Havels ring and use something else (I'd go with DWGR, but having that spot open to change makes any build more dynamic).
-ideally I'd bring int up to 32 with the Tin Crystallization Catalyst to make my sorceries really pack a punch

Here's what I ended up with when trying to keep the fashion as close as possible:

Here's what I ended up with when I ditched fashion: (NOTE: this has stronger sorceries)

Here's what I ended up with when I kept the "no shield" plan: (NOTE: has stronger sorceries) -You can drop Vit by 3 if you want that attunement slot back.

Please don't take any of this personally. I'm only saying how I would make it if it were my build. The way you have it currently is solid, and would be sure to be a success in pvp.

lots of words


Thanks for your input dude , its interesting to see what others would do with "my build" . I definatly see the reasoning behind the 16 strength , id probably drop a couple vit and raise strength ( hello halberd ) . Can't stand the crystallization catalyst though , I hate having half my casts zapped away and the extra stat investment to wield it is also a turn off for me on this build .

I'm a sucker for fashion souls , if I don't like the way the character looks I won't enjoy playing it . So I find the havels and fap ring combo to be very helpful to stay in desired weight range and the other rings don't seem that good IMO . Can't stand the dwgr animation regardless of how effective that thing can be lol

I get the "your attunement is too high " fairly often , I don't really mind the hassle of switching through spells mid battle , especially because it makes me that much more unpredictable

Thanks for suggestions brodown

I'd do this instead, if you don't need the poise (you don't really for the weapons) switch from wolf to dwgr

53 poise is basically 56
