Once, a mad king was born to the pygmy royalty and Shira, knight of Filianore, put him to rest.
But Shira's cross spear, unable to kill the undying king, only pinned itself to him.
Shira delivered them together to the darkroom, where she stayed and held them close.

      I finally happened to get this build with a fresh character lvl 21, max weapon upgrade = +2 all alone, and I have to say that I am pretty disappointed. Ok the build does a lot of damage, but in return, due to not having steel ring +3 and prisoner's chain lowering defenses even more, you become very squichy too. Finally about this statement: "Most of the time you'll 2-Hit-Kill phantoms and even the host"; each hit deals above 200 damage, it takes most of the time 4 to 5 hits. Perhaps I missed something with this build...

      my thoughts in short:

      pros: cons:
      - Good damage - hard to get (I had some fun with this character though)
      - nice poise - squishy
      - Vordt slayer - pretty low range

          Why would the Mad King carry the Crucifix of the Mad King? That means he'd carry a cross spear that's attached to his own skeleton. What.

            You can also save 5 SL by putting on the Priestess ring to apply Dark Blade and then switch to another ring (eg. Dark clutch)
