The reason I choose to use the parrying dagger and the mailbreaker is because they look like Sai.
the Iaito has a more flexible moveset than the uchigitana. you could as easily use the chaos blade if you want.
Real ninjas where know as a covert agent or mercenary in feudal Japan. The functions of the ninja included espionage, sabotage, infiltration, assassination and guerrilla warfare; copied and pasted from wikipedia. So in order to rollplaying them realistically you will need to have:
Poison throwing knifes
black fire bombs
the mailbreaker is the weapon with most riposte damage in the whole game. you will want to either make it chaos infused or normal +15 and use a resin. to maximice damage imput.
remember to put points into resistance since you will have no poise and almost no defense with the shadow set. the rest is up to you.
It'd be cool to put the 10 wasted points of DEX into INT so you can add the Hush, Hidden Body, and Chameleon sorceries and add flavor to this build.
For the comments below, are we looking at the same build. Nowhere does it say anything about a washing pole for one thing and for another the weapons and gear are all things that ninja would use. I think it's a cool idea. Much better than the cluster bomb of family mask meta weapon builds. I also like that the mail breaker is in this build. Oh, and also, the rings are not wrong. They are spot on for PVE which is what the build is focused on. Ring of fog and slumbering for ghost like stealth, hornet ring for assassinations, and dark wood grain ring is just obvious. To me this looks like a legit ninja build.
I do not know where to start criticizing your "build"
the weapons are wrong, the stats are wrong the class is wrong, rings are wrong.
this is the most wrong build i ever see, no doubt pvp is dificult since you did everything wrong.
no doubt pvp is dificult your build is*****.
how the ***** do you parry and riposte with a washing pole????
you should delete this.
what? where the ***** did you saw a ninja using 2 of the largest katanas???
why 40 endurance when you use ring of favor and protection and Cloranthy?
why dark hand?
