Equipment

Bracing Knuckle Ring +2 (Mostly PvE orientated but useful for drawn out PvP fights to prevent ring destruction)
Chloranthy Ring +2
Third Dragon Ring +2
Royal Soldiers Ring +2 (+1 also works when not using a shield)

Bone Crown (Good defence and low weight)
Throne Watcher's Armour (Fashion Souls)
Havel's Gauntlets
Havel's Leggings

Spells

Warmth - Highly useful if invading and can be a welcome asset to out of combat healing in PvE

Toxic Mist - Useful for taking out some PvE targets and for zoning out/masking your attacks in PvP

Tips

Ultra-Greatswords take time to get used to - But Pursuer's (Along with the regular Greatsword and Lost Sinner's Sword) has a fairly decent moveset once you're used to it - Running attacks provide wide swings (1H and 2H have vastly different speeds allowing you to catch people off guard) and 2H light attack second hit is very quick to get off which combined with aiming can catch people off guard (Also - It can hit directly behind you)

UGS's have a 70% physical block making them acceptable for use as a shield - A tactic I used in my main character in DS1 using a Zweihander with no shield.
