Why would you even do this?
Tired of your usual spellsword builds? Don't want to be your basic boring melee character with buffs? Want to be an actual spellsword? Don't worry my friend! This build is just for you! This build is actually not very effective in PvP due to low damage and the need of fp to survive and it's only decent in PvE but if you want to confuse your opponent with your life choices then go ahead!
PvP: Do your normal PvP stuff like with every other strength/dex build but be less dangerous in every way possible since you can't even backstab or riposte. If you chose the higher attunement instead of something that actually keeps you alive like vigor or endurance in which case you should bring some spells to nuke/distract your opponent. I'd recommend something like homing crystal soulspear or white dragon breath for distractions. Your most important spells will be farron flash sword and old moonlight (soul greatsword is to get a bit of extra damage given the chance and dark edge XD amirite?) farron flashsword will be used for your basic r1 spam and old moonlight to snipe your opponents or used to kill if they are at low hp. You just need to look for mistakes your opponent makes and punish them in a less dangerous but a cooler way. If you're wondering about the left hand items the candle stick is for extra damage and the shield is for if you want to look more knightly (in that case take out some of the attunment and get vitality instead).
PvE: Your using a god damn sword! How hard can it be to just r1 spam everything. By the way good luck with anything that has some magic resistance (crystal sages XD). This is where the dark edge gets some good use.
All in all I have overreacted a bit. The build is fairly usable in PvP and Many enemies in PvE don't have much magic resistance. Use at your own risk though since there are many more actually good and well made builds for PvP and PvE. I just made this build for fun.
