How to play this build:
Samurai style build, focusing on two main weapons, a Katana and a Bow. This build is all about swift slashes and precise arrows, each strategically placed throughout the battle.
For the Katana choose your preferred one, I like the Black Blade when paired with the Black Bow of Pharis, but clearly the washing pole is better. Darkdrift has a cool concept but you miss out on Hold, so it’s up to you.
For the bow I would only go Black Bow of Pharis, it’s still a small bow, so as to not over encumber you and will scale decently well with your Dex. Bows are much more viable this time around and since you won’t be carrying around a shield it’s nice to dodge around and do some ranged damage while staying true to the character lore.
Stats are as follows:
SOUL LEVEL 110 – Starting Class – Mercenary
VIG – 30 (Good chunk of health to keep you alive longer)
ATT – 12 (Solid FP to let you use your weapon art in a duel a decent amount)
END – 30 (Could increase at cost of VIG if you want a higher risk, higher reward playstyle)
VIT – 20 (Will allow you to wear both weapons, Easterners Set, and left over space for rings)
STR – 40 (Best DMG Softcap)
DEX – 40 (Best DMG Softcap)
INT – 10 (No need for it but still, with no investment you can still recruit Orbeck)
FTH – 8 (No need)
LCK – 9 (Not a part of this build)
Rings I recommend are:
Chloranthy Ring, Prisoner’s Chain, Lloyd’s Sword Ring, and Carthus Milkring.
