125 Quality.
50/12/43/28/45/10/8

Claymore/Longsword/Chaos Blade/Silver Knight Spear/Rapier/Dark Silver Tracer

Kick ~> Great Combustion/Black Flame/CB R1

Heater/Large Leather/Leather/Small Leather Shield = Parry the world, Giant's Gauntlets w/ Wolf Ring to poise through Black Flame while retaining fashion souls on Head, Chest and Legs, etc.

A ton of variety. Easily my favorite.
Builds with Int/Fth tend to be gimmicky as balls so I have a bit less fun with them.

I prefer casual games. Let's play! [I fear vacuums and the ocean and I'm a Scrublord. I suck!]

I prefer estoc dex faith build personally. 50/12/42/12/40/12/10/30. I've played about every build possible, they are all fun. Estoc just wins for me because it's harder to parry. Easy to poise through, but Estoc isn't for spamming, but for tactical harassment.

Yah, but buffs run out tho...
Dios plays a fairly good Bestoc or maybe it was a Rapier?

Ah cool. Yeah buffs run out, but since the build is so flexible, you don't need buffs to win. The Leo Ring is strong enough to harass. Buffs are just icing on the cake.

I like it because it literally puts a parrier in the highest skill cap parry animation possible. Everything is parryable, but this is the least such.

That does sound fun. In a cheesy kinda way.
I can see the appeal. Plus you can run Rapier with Hornets if the opponents prone to bs fishing.

Yeah you should try it. I've played your build, and it's fun as well. Quality/STR def. is the most fun. Mine is mad cheese but mad effective.

I also really like the 1h DGA build as well as the Large Club/GClub and GS. BSS is always fun. I like the GScythe as well but find myself missing too much and caught off guard in the 2h R2 stagger.

Was thinking of making a new character for SL125 and I am stuck. Already leveled them but doing again for funzies. Maybe I should just make a DEX Estoc build and a different SL125 STR build back to back lol. Damn game is addicting.

I gotta finish this FFX International playthrough 1st. Almost at the Monster Arena and Dark Aeons.

The gravelord events and covenant wars.

The cosplay one at the Kiln is my favorite.

That looks fun! I just never use the Crown of Dusk. It gives the enemy more magical damage than it does you. I prefer the Crown of the Dark Sun:

CoD: +20% magic damage +30% magic damage taken

CotDS: +10% magic damage

10% extra magic damage is not worth 30% more magic damage taken IMO. Although the CoD weighs quite a bit less.
