This might be one of the best low-level builds for invasions. At 18str/14dex you can have 514 AR with Dragonslayer's Axe+10 and Raw Gen infusion with Lightning Clutch Ring, this weapon can also be buffed, you can get 623 AR with the Gold Pine Resin and 652 AR with the Bundle, and with 39vig and 28end you have a HP and stamina of a SL120 build. I, as you see, sacrificed some defense for the fashion and even so I have 27 physical defense, but you can make it better by using better armor, using just the Axe, the rings and the armor Im using you end up with 49.2% weight, so you have a lot of weight room for better armor. Also, 70% of the damage is pure lightning, so turtles won't be a problem anymore.
Cons: The range and the moveset. The axe has a very short range, specially on dodge/r1 attacks which seems to have a shorter range than a dagger. The moveset is not great either, it has the size of a straight sword (maybe shorter) and its slower, so if you want to use this build you better start practicing with small axes.
You can also go with SL50 or SL20 by just adding less stamina and/or hp, would be even more powerful probably, I chose SL55 because it has a great matchmaking and stays out of the range of the Meta. You can go with SL120 too by making a 60 Faith build, although with 60 Faith the Crucifix of the Mad King would be better. Also, you can make a 16STR build instead of 18 if you don't want to use the 1H mode, I don't recommend it though, the 1H mode has a slightly faster animation so it can be useful sometimes.
Creighton would be proud.
