The armor can be any set/combo you want; as long as it has high poise.

Redeye Ring (The cornerstone of the build; forces enemies to target you.)


Sacred Oath
Great Heal


When fighting common mobs, run around them so that the host/other phantom is facing their back, allowing easy backstabs and spell hits. Remember; if your host gets hurt, get very close to them and use Great Heal, so that the restoration may be shared. Against bosses that do non-physical damage, dodgeroll through the projectiles/sword and keep in their face. Fighting Darklurker with this build will be tricky, if you or your host can't handle the DPS of the second Darklurker, consider Great Magic Barrier. Against physical bosses, hold your Tower Shield with both hands and hug the boss. Lower your guard while the boss is recovering from an attack.

That's about it; I had the idea for this build and recently got around to it. Boss fights were SO EASY! Nashandra and Velstadt were wimps. I REALLY like this build. Have fun Sunbros!
