Host Build?

[ Edited ]
8 replies 309 views Edited Jan 9, 2013

All my PvP builds are a part of the darkwraith covenant and are geared more towards invading, rather than hosting. Does anyone have a PvP build fthat's specifically made to host PvP matches? If not, let's come up with one.

 

The build should be a tank of sorts: very durable, able to take lots of damage, etc... So the invader cant lagstab you and send all your phantom buddies home without much of a fight. And i'm thinking that it would be a good idea to utilize the "Soothing Sunlight" and "Bountiful Sunlight" miracles so you don't have to waste estus to heal your allies (if they don't have spare humanity)

 

So basically, im looking for some sort of Faith-Tank for PvP hosting purposes. If nobody posts a good build, ill come up with one and post it here. 

 

Thanks in advance,

Counter

This is currently my favorite host build for the forest.  (I forget to add the 50 humanity the toon had). I use a +5 chaos scythe as second option on that toon as well. This is a TANK FROM H E LL.

Ganking doesn't apply in the forest. The forest is all out warfare. You want to play with rules, go to the arena.

Ganking does not apply in the forest. Normally, you can summon only one friend there and the number of invaders can be up to 3 (2 forest hunters and 1 darkwraith) Also, if you have a good connection, it's not uncommon for an invader to replace the one you just killed almost immediately. If you don't kill them fast you can get over run, which is why it's a lot of fun.

So please, take your misplaced sense of self-righteousness and go to the kiln where it's actually wanted. kthxbye
