- Right Hand: Claymore +15 Ascended Pyromancy Flame +5
-The Claymore is quite possibly the best weapon in the game. It is versatile, has excellent reach, incredible combo proclivity, awesome movesets in both 1H and 2H forms, can perform easy dead angle attacks and in EGWF's own words:
"Still amazing. A 2-hit from 1-hand (not quite Flameberge R2s however) and combos from R2 and WD. Probably still the best with it's two amazing R2s."
Combos with the Claymore
[Courtsey of EGWF]
1) Forward+R2, R1
2) R2, R1
3) While Dodging R1, R1
1) R2, R1
[Claymore may have other combos experiment with its moveset]
Pyromancy is a good option because it does not scale off any stat, only from the upgrades performed on the glove. It can compliment your offensive with spells such as Great Fireball, Fire Surge and Great Combustion.
- Left Hand: Silver Knight Shield +5
-Has solid defense against Fire and Lightning and great stability, but not much defense against Magic. You can compensate for this flaw with Great Magic Barrier. It reduces 75% Fire and 65% Lightning but only 40% Magic. It has a Stability of 76 making it one of the strongest medium shields.
Grass Crest Shield +15
-This shield does not have 100% physical protection nor does it have a high stability. However while it is equipped whether held or on your back it will grant a slight boost to Stamina regeneration. This shield can be very useful when 2H the Claymore.
-This is the best Talisman you can obtain in game. You can farm the Crows of the Painted World for Souvenirs of Reprisal and you will need 10 to get Rank 1 in the Darkmoon Covenant but the Talisman is worth it. This Talisman has the highest Mag Adjust of any Talisman. For the time being make use of the Canvas Talisman your class starts with.
- Head: Giant Helm +5
- Chest: Giant Armor +5
- Hands: Giant Gauntlets +5
- Legs: Giant Leggings +5
- Rings: Havel's Ring
Darkwood Grain Ring
-These two Rings will allow you to move as if you where at 25% equip load with all the benefits it brings. You move faster, recover stamina slightly faster and gain a superior evasion.
Ring of Favor and Protection
-These two rings will grant 70% equip load as well as 20% health and stamina. It is the only way to bypass the normal Stamina cap.
Original Build by Conagan
Maintained by Issac Frost
The Grey Knight, as intended by its original creator, combines mobility, a powerful melee weapon and Miracles/Pyromancy being a very versatile and adaptable build.
[Since Patch 1.05 a lot of what was used in the previous builds are not exactly useful at the moment and a lot of changes means the need to adapt. After countless hours PvPing in Kiln and feedback from excellent PvPers such as EGWF this is what I have found useful.]
