Well, after playing Dark Souls 2 for a long time this was one of my favorite builds that I've created, any doubts, suggestions and constructive criticism will be wellcome, hope you enjoy, thanks. -GetsuSenshi [mugenmonkey]
Bastard Sword (Lightning +10) // Bow of Want (Lightning +5) // Dragon Chime (Lightning +5)
Lion Mage Set + Saint's Hood // Ring of Blades + Chloranthy Ring are your main rings, the other 2 are optional.
2x Sunlight Blade 3x Great Lightning Spear 1x Sunlight Spear (You can change Sunlight Spear for Wrath of the Gods If you wanna PvP)
First, take your dagger in "Things Betwixt" after you have created your character, now should run to the Forest of Giants to kill the Heide Knight, near the tree, he will drop your first faith scaling weapon "Heide Knight Sword" that require 11 str 10 dex. Put some faith and attunement for healing/lightning spear, now you're ready to begin your journey. Have fun.
