|Ledo's Great Hammer||Cleric's Sacred Chime|
They look awesome. My first choice was actually Smough's Great Hammer - the true great hammer of DS - but Ledo's has the insane weapon art.
The problem with great hammers is that they are slow, easy to dodge and you get vulnerable to back stabs.
My solution to overcome this was to use a greatsword on the left hand, as shown bellow.
Just for casting Tear's of denial.
Any miracle catalyst works.
Yes. Not only are you carrying the heaviest weapon in the game on the right hand, as a back up, you're using a greatsword.
As mentioned above, great hammers are very slow and easily dodged, so I needed another weapon to help out. The reason why I decided to use greatswords on the left hand, it's because the light attack it's an horizontal slash, which depending on the greatsword you're using, has a decent range and it hit's pretty well on rolling enemies.
I use it a lot to bait enemies into a combo with the great hammer like this:
light attack GS -> light attack GH -> jumping heavy attack GH
If you manage to pull this off, it takes a lot of damage.
Also, greatswords two hand running light attack is great for finishing off enemies.
I went with the following equipment because not only it has great defense but also because of it kinda looks like a goblin to me.
The Gauntlets of Thorns it's for roll kill enemies with tears of denial.
|Head: Morne's Helm||Chest: Harald Legion Armor||Hands: Gauntlets of Thorns||Legs: Harald Legion Leggings|
|Havel's Ring +3||Ring of Favor +3||Prisoner's Chain||Chloranthy Ring +3|
|Increases equipment load
|Increases max HP by 6%, max Stamina by 11.5% and Equip Load by 8%||Add +5 VGR, END and VIT||
Improves stamina recovery (which you use a lot since you're using two heavy weapons)
|Tears of Denial|
It will help you get that last hit more safely.
Best way to see it, it's to watch the build video:
