The Scorching Huntress
by Haganeh This build revolves around harassing your opponent in territories that you're extremely familiar with, whether it's by setting up an ambush around a corner where multiple enemies are approaching- or suddenly striking your opponent with a quick flurry of attacks amidst a confusion from your Toxic Mist. (Chivalry's dead guys, it's no use to be dead with honor intact!)

Playstyle and general practices:

The basic intent of this build is for you to essentially "hunt" your targets (and possibly their Phantoms) with discretion and secrecy, toying with them could also be a motif for you. Try to invade in a place where you are very familiar with the terrain and know every possible route, bonus points if it has multiple corners for sneak attacks! Your stats are minimal, and purely there for the Gold Tracer and Health bonus- meaning that you cannot expect to rush blindly into a duel and expect to win. Your Balder Shield should only be used for head-on conflicts, Pyromancy works great as pressure against your opponent who may be wearing heavy armor or turtling behind a greatshield, and finally your speed is key to pulling off any last resort attempts to try and kill your prey when you think he has you cornered. Generally speaking, your weapons should not be used with the intent of causing regular damage, rather you should focus on building up Bleed on your unfortunate friends and possibly take any windows of opportunity they give to try and get a backstab in. If you end up invading in a spot/situation that gives you a disadvantage you can always try to lure your opponent's with your Black Bow, or get into a nice corner to pull off a surprise Fire Tempest revenge kill.

Good hunting!
