Faraam, God of War

Description

Faraam, the God of War is a deity that was once revered by the people of Forossa, and some of it's most ferocious warriors, the Lion Knights, were equipped with the same armor of their long forgotten hero.
As a God of War, you would think he was a master of all forms of combat, and that's what this build represents; Being able to switch to different weapons and movesets in order to gain an advantage when your current tactics aren't working. The purpose of that is simply to destroy your opponent and become an unstoppable warlord.

NOTE: This build will take you through at least NG+ to complete the build as it stands, but it is recommended to keep raising the bar to increase the amount of souls. For example, at Bonfire Intensity 8, the Giant Lord drops over 500,000 souls per kill when wearing a lot of equipment that increases soul gain.
This build should be nearly flawless in PvE if the user is skilled enough.

Tips

-It is highly recommended to use equipment that increases the amount of souls gained per kill.

(You can completely disregard this paragraph if you do not care about difficulties in PvP)
-Invasions are not recommended, as you could easily end up fighting someone who is over SL400, which could most likely end in a loss due to the massive gap in stats. This build is strictly designed for 1v1 PvP in the Brotherhood of Blood's arena, whereas in the arena, the matchup is based on soul level, so you're less likely to find a difficult opponent.
-However, using the Red Sign Soapstone to find an opponent could be useful, as you could be summoned by someone who would be easier to defeat.

-Please feel encouraged to apply as many movesets as possible to make it difficult for your opponent to know what you're going to do next. The less they know about your tactics, the better the chance you could win the duel.
