|Build Name||Creator (Wiki Username)||Primary Stats||Description||Expertise|
|Relaxmann Build||Relaxmann||VIT, END||Class: Bandit
Starting SL: 4
SLs to invest: 28 SLs into VIT and 26 SLs END = 40 of both
Final SL: 58
Weapon: Lightning Reinforced Club or Lightning Battle Axe (both weight of 4.0)
Shield: Grass Crest Shield (weight of 3.0)
Ring 1: Ring of Favor and Protection (core for the build)
Ring 2: Dark Wood Grain Ring (exchangeable)
Remaining weight for armor freedom while staying in the Fast Roll: 17.0
Optional for more useable weapons and shields: Get STR up to 15 and Dex up to 10 to fight with the Lightning Guardian Tail (weight of 5.0). STR up to 16 to wear the Eagle Shield (weight of 6.0). DEX up to 11 to use the Target Shield (weight of 3.0). DEX up to 14 to use the Lightning Whip (weight of 1.5). DEX up to 16 to use the Lightning Notch Whip (weight of 2.0).
Optional for the case, that you want to use Mid Roll: Do not use the Dark Wood Grain Ring, since you won't get the special Flip Roll. Hornet Ring + Target Shield is an option. However, do not use Whips with Target Shield + Hornet Ring, since Whips cannot make use of the special parry animation + increased Crit Dmg. Other ring options are the Cloranthy Ring and other rings you might find use in. Do not exchange Ring of Favor and Protection, since it is a core part of the 40 VIT / 40 END build.

Ok. I'll give you all a helping hand. If you want to really learn how to PVP, you should make a build with a high level character, MIN: level 80 / MAX: no more than 150 (maybe 200, depends if you are playing PTED or Remaster). Anything more than that will make you too powerful , too OP (and so you will kill as a result of your power and not of your skill).
- Learn how to BS (Backstabs): for better or for worse this is a game of paper, scissors and Bs's. Learn to read your rival and attempt Predictive Parries (even if you fail, get the timing of the parries - different from PVE)
- Don't use Magic or Miracles (with these you usually win with One Shot, is too OP, and then you don't learn)
- Don't use OP bad weapons (all you learn from them is how to spam) I mean: Goldtracer, Orthanc Spear, Demon Spear, etc
- Fast roll. Don't use too many pieces of armor. Your poise should be MIN: 20 / MAX: around 30 (no more than that... because if you have a lot of poise then you won't learn Toggle Escape).
- Learn the Good Weapons: 1) Claymore, if you master the claymore, you can master any weapon in the game. So that makes the claymore the best weapon in the game... then you can try the rest.
- Don't do anything cheap and don't cheat... learn to lose. Being vulnerable is your best teacher. You'll die a lot, but you will learn eventually.
how is it possible that giantdad is not here?
Of all the builds I've ever tried the sorceromancer is my favorite. I pvp at lvl 60. I'm keeping the specifics proprietary but I'll share some things.
- Poise is 56 but mid roll (rather be able to finish casting a spell and not get staggered than be nimble because fire tempest works best when swarmed).
- high vitality to be tankish
- Crown of Dusk and bellowing dragoncrest ring
- Crystal magic weapon
- Dark bead
- Homing crystal soulmass
- Fire tempest
- Black Flame
- Balder Side Sword
- Crest Shield
This is a naaaasty build that can wipe out an opponent in just a few seconds (I show no mercy if they are summoning or have help already). This also has several different play styles, you can go pyro and also use Chaos Fireball or you can go ranged magic (use against peeps with weapons that hit harder than 56 poise) or you can do combat with the balder side sword. It's great to keep people guessing, especially if you have invaded them before. With the three playstyles or possibly even more there really isn't a weakness to the build and you can even get lucky if ganked by using a well timed fire tempest. I've wiped out 3 players at once before.
Using this in the parish on switch:
Starting class sorcerer upgrade faith to 18 and int by 1.
Use havels ring and FAP ring to wear full giants execept for crown of dusk.
Then you get TWOP and Darkbead
Want a salty build...
Whatever standard weapon that can be darkmoon bladed
Just tranquil walk than spam force an WoG
Got a low level build that actually works and is somewhat fun to an extent :
Bandit class with master key
Just wear the balder leggings and nothing else.
Use burnt pine resin for big boi damage.
Rings are FaP Ring and wolf ring for poise and 3 r1's
Pretty fun traumatizing people as a naked guy with a big flaming sword.
These builds are literal dog ****
