So I've played a ton of both Dark Souls and Demon's Souls but the only build I've never really tried is the no shield build. I think I'm decent enough to do parries but I'm leaning more towards a 2H strength build.
The strength builds I'm thinking of are either trying to conserve weight by using the Butcher Knife or Man Serpent Greatsword or going all out attack with something heavy like the Demon's Greataxe.
Obviously a dual wield build would focus on dexterity with either a Great Scythe or an Uchigatana with a Parrying Dagger in the off hand.
I plan on using the fast roll so armor doesn't matter until I get my endurance high enough which I'll probably just use the Black Leather set. At this point I'm just looking for more reasons to play more Dark Souls so any suggestions would be helpful.
EDIT: Also this will be for PvE only and rings will be Ring of Favor and probably Havel's ring till I get my endurance high enough and after that I don't really know.
