Pros:

  • Very high HP (1828 HP)
  • High damage output. (838 total damage and 300 Bleed on +15 Great Scythe with Darkmoon Blade + Pyromancy/Wrath of God)
  • Excellent stamina and stamina regeneration.
  • Excellent defense: Good reach, resists, poise and ninja flipping.
  • Highly versatile. Flexible movesets + reach + Heater Shield parrying + Black Bow of Pharis + 7 attunement slots + Miracles & Pyromancy allows you to handle a wide variety of threats.
  • Great at crowd control.
  • 45 Dex gives you the fastest cast time possible.

Cons:

  • Great Scythes/Fire Tempest require caution when in use due to high recovery or start up times.
  • Damage output heavily diminished after Darkmoon/Sunlight Blade buffs and magic slots are exhausted.
  • Must be a Darkmoon Blade member.

Basic Playstyle:
  • Prebuff -> Cast Tranquil Walk of Peace -> Ambush/Engage Enemy -> Fire Tempest -> Finish with Wrath of God or Great Combustion.
  • When spells are depleted, attack with Darkmoon/Sunlight Blade buffed +15 Great Scythe. Buff with Gold or Rotten Pine Resin when Darkmoon/Sunlight Blade are depleted.
  • Remember to prep/buff with Green Blossoms.
  • Crown of Dusk/Dark Sun and/or Bellowing Dragoncrest Ring especially recommended when ambushing with Fire Tempest.
  • If you're willing to prepare heal spells, chug estus, burn Humanity, or take a chance, prepare and use Power Within for devastating melee attacks/spells. Remember to use an unupgraded Pyromancy Flame and Lingering Dragoncrest Ring to cast Power Within in order to minimize the health drain!

Note: Sinking 2 points from Vitality and/or Endurance into Strength is recommended if you want to use the Avelyn crossbow.
