- Spells- Really up to you. Because I messed up and told the initial pyromancer about Quelana without knowing he'd go kill her, I didnt have access to any of her spells. So I made up for it by attaining rank 2 in the Chaos Covenant and using Great Chaos Fireball and Chaos Storm.
How this build works is relatively simple. By using the Stone Greatsword, you receive the faith benefit of twop, without having to actually invest the points into faith. At the beginning of the battle, use the Greatswords 2h R2 ability, switch to your offhand Hammer, and sprint attack at them. This often catches the opponent by surprise, and has 2 very favorable outcomes; the first being that they try to dodge-roll, only to find themselves immobile, the second being they attempt to block it and lose a giant portion of their stamina. Either way, your job is rather simple; just keep swinging the hammer until they die. With the Grass Crest shield on your back stacking with the Child's Mask your stamina regenerates very quickly, and you should be able to keep up the swinging. With the defensive rings attatched, your physical defenses should almost all be in the 400s, and your fire and Electric ones in the low 300s.
Spell casters- Require a bit more strategy and maneuvering on your part, due to your low magic defenses. However, with a good internet connection (which is really crucial to avoid anyway) I found it was relatively easy to trigger the Crystal Homing Soulmasses at favorable times and sidestep the soulrays, even as a fat roller. Even sprinting in a diagonal fassion towards them will often close the distance to them with relatively little harm to yourself.
Other tanks- As always, the toughest foe to battle is one that is using the same class type as you. Its not uncommon to see other hammer wielding tanks using the REAL variation of twop- the result being two very immobile hammer thugs. All in all- just try to use whatever hammer youre using to your advantage over the other hammers. The Demon's great hammer has more damage than a large club, and possibly a slightly faster attack speed than Smoughs Hammer (just my personal observation, definitely unconfermed). Smough's Hammer wielders will deffinately be your toughest opponent, as they are likely to have invested even more points into strength than you have. Just try to be the one with the first swing, and you'll probably be all set.
