Nimble Artorias Build (Lvl 120) by Brolaire


Starting Class: Wanderer
Starting Gift: Master Key

General Information
A quick, nimble build centered around the Greatsword of Artorias. Not recommended for first-timers, as it takes quite a while to be effective—but once it does, you'll be doling out massive damage with GofA (which scales at C for str / dex and B for int / faith) and ninja-flipping all over the place. Vitality and endurance remain relatively low throughout, as the build favors speed and evasion to tanking; the point is to move so quickly and hit so hard that very few enemies will get a chance to actually hurt you. New Game + and co-op are especially fun here.

Spells
Mask of the Father increases equip load by 15%, and with this exact set-up / stat distribution you'll be below 50% and able to ninja-flip with the Dark Wood Grain Ring. The lightweight Crest Shield works well as a main shield, Dragon Crest is strong against fire, and Grass Crest is best for quickly recovering stamina if and when you choose to two-hand the GofA. Since the build is recommended for co-op in particular it should be easy to accrue souls for upgrading all of this gear.
