This build can get INSANE damage on bosses! Use Power Within and one of the Blade spells and watch the INSANITY! Despite being intended for co-op and pve, this build is perfectly viable for pvp due to fast damage output and access to spells like WOTG and DM/SL Blade.
This build is hard to get used to, due to no poise and no shield, but this adds challenge, and keeps you on your toes. Do try this build out, you'll not regret it!

l hate this build
3 things worth noting with this build: 1) if you like parrying but still wanna block some damage, the buckler or target shield work very well. 2) i think that, from a fashion souls point of view, the balder side sword looks better than the iaito when paired with chester's coat, but gameplay wise it is a little bit weaker in terms of basic damage. 3) if you want to add some range, the balder side sword and buckler can be paired with the avelyn and talisman to retain your carry weight light enough to do the dark wood grain ring flips, but you will need one more point in strength to use avelyn correctly.
At what point in this build should I go into Blighttown to get the Iaito, and what weapon/s do you use until then?
is this a good build for your first playthrough?
Hey! What about to use divine laito instead of normal laito+15? I m trying this build but i m not use with Dark Souls (but what a game!...)
Sorry for my poor english (french..)
Very nice build. I'm on new game+ with this now, but I replaced parrying dagger with a shield, due to the fact that you can block while parrying, causing less mistakes, and I didnt feel the 2 extra frames for parry helped at all. The darkmoon blade spell was a knacker to obtain, and to use. as you need to join the covenant, but I like to kill gwyndolin before I finish the game off. Very nice either way!
What if we use a shield? What will happen? And what's poise
Hey there! I recently started playing and a friend pointed out this guide for me. I have a question, how did you manage to get those starting stats, when the Pyromancer starts with a different set? I didn't see the option to customize them anywhere.Thanks!
