Beta Duel Swordsman


This is designed for PvE and modeled after the Dual Swordsman in the Beta/Network Test.

It takes a while to get to full build so its a better NG+ build, but it is a fun build.

It relies on pure damage and dodging like any dual swords build does. It does still have a shield (while weak) to fall back on in emergency.

The Black Leggings are replaced with the Rogue Leggings because they offer fantastic defense and actually match the set better.

-The target shield is there as a last resort or for parrying.

-The Mirrah Greatsword's damage is actually trumped by the power stance swings of the Royal Dirk and Longsword in most cases.

-Rolling is your friend.

-R1 to L1 is strong when powerstancing.
