Build Notes and Strategy

First of all, lets talk about the gear:

One of the advantages of this build is it's wide range of usable gear, but in this guide im focusing on 3 weapons.

First of all we have our main weapon of choice, the Hollowslayer Greatsword, this greatsword returns from Dark Souls 2, and here it is a beast, it has one of the best movesets in the entire game, even compensating for it's smaller range with the trust atack in the charged R2, going with the build im presenting here, you get 516 pure physical damange.

Next weapon is our optional weapon, the Wolf Knight Greatsword, my personal favorite, wich, similar to the hollowslayer has a different moveset, although what shines the most are the moves that come form its weapon art, they are kinda diffcult to land, but they are very, very dangerous. 

Finally, for our right hand i choose to bring a Carthus Shotel, this is of course optional, but it is very efective against greatshield users.

Left Hand is pretty self explanatory, Wolf Shield for blocking and using the weapon art, Manikin Claws for parry, and Pyro Flame for casting Warmth.

There really isn't a lot to say about strategy, you must adapt to the enemie and situation, remeber to have fun though.
