Just finished off two new builds (after deleting all the ones i had already) that I will be taking into The Old Hunters. One skill build and one arcane.
The Blades of Mercy have been my favorite weapon from day one pretty much, so I couldn't do without it. Went with Troubled Childhood for the 9 arcane to use Simon's Bowblade. 1 point in strength is technically wasted since I don't use Burial Blade much at all. Attire is all fashion. Will likely take this up to 110 meta later.
Arcane build for the fun of it. Obviously Cruel Fate for 5 BLT. Getting through the game with strength and skill at base is a damn chore, but slotting in an arcane gem makes it all worth it. Hunter Tools are meh generally, especially A Call Beyond. Hoping the DLC will bring some good stuff to the table. Attire is again all fashion. This one will likely stay at 100. Unless I come across something that needs higher stats. In that case again probably 110 meta. Rosmarinus is so sexy you don't even fucking know.
Post your builds. I recommend using the character planner at Mugenmonkey.
