Be an epicnamebro fan boy like all the other dex/faith builds and go Great scythe and darkmoon blade. Then you will have the most damage, have fun.

i would recomend you cap dex at 45 and faith at 30 get atleast enough vit to have over 1000 hp you can use ring of divine favor and/or mask of mother to acomplish this prolly want only about 4 attunement slots thats 14 attunement i think, and dump the rest into endurance, use ring of the sun's first born or wolfs ring. Have fun farming 80 souveneirs.

this is my favorite type of build ive got several faith dex characters.

He is a good build for you. with these stats you can use the dark moon blade buff on the bss.
I dont know your starting class so I chose warrior. Hope it helps!

I don't see much reason for dex 45 for faith builds the only real spell you ever cast during a fight is wrath of god and that's already fast as it needs to be. Unless he's going to use pyromancy alongside miracles.

i have started as cleric and i wont use any pyro spells.. just dex for dex based weapons like balder sword or katanas... and for armor ? no armor? or no poise? and why 45 dex ? at 40 wont be good?

At 45 dex you'll have max casting speed I believe. Of course for dex weapons 45 is redundant. So ur choice. IMO katana is way better than balder sword, but there are many more dex weapons that you should have a look at too. Armor is flexible. You'll want some poise, but fast roll. I recommend the dingy set or black leather set or you can mix and match with a heavier legpiece or gloves from a heavy armor set to get poise. Wolf ring is nice too.

45 dex isnt redundant at 50 is when there is no point and adding more but while over 40 does diminish returns it still gives you a decent ammount and if you can build it in pump it to 50.

You can do a lot with armor, ive got people with 20 endurance and get 65 poise with havels ring, hollow soldier waist cloth, black iron gauntlets, dingy robe and mask of the mother, wolf ring, pretty sweet setup good defense magic resist and poise.

but if i go with 45 to 50 dex then i think i have to cap my other stats cap at about 25 to 30 so in that way i can get a good character build of SL 100... But if PvP is more alive @ Undead Burg Or Anor Londo @ SL120 Then May be i will think of getting that much high dex..

2 versions of the same build. Both fast roll and have similar defense. Weapon is uchi which can be swapped for great scythe or winged spear. Great magic barrier in order to counter most weapon buffers and especially dark magic users. Black flame included because it's always good to have it.

76 poise. Lower attack, stamina, and hp
Poise is 76 in order to counter ultra greatsword users. Can probably counter giants dad fairly well.

55 poise. Higher attack, stamina, and hp

Same build but with ninja flipping and BSS instead of uchi. 55 poise. Same cons as the 76 poise. Overall lower attack, but faster in almost every way. Use gold tracer if faced with a turtle.

Here is how I would build your guy, no wrath of the gods cause its for ♥♥♥♥, painting guardians sword because its fast as hell does bleed and good damage, better than baulder side sword. You can change out the wolfs ring as you like with whatever, darkwood grain ring, ring of the sun's first born. Cross bow for punishing people trying to heal quickly. And you have 9 points left to play with, Id either get more vit or more endurance and str to equip a wider variety of weapon.

The last spell slot in there is up for grabs, if you want to be lame use wrath of the gods, force is also really handy for pushing people off ledges(personal favorite) i also actually like karmic justice if they hit through your sheild a few times or are opening up on you it can be a nasty surprise, doesnt stack with great magic barrier though.

you could also switch the heater sheild out and raise endurance for blood sheild or grass crest, alternatively you could drop it for a dark hand which weighs nothing and equip better gloves for more poise and defense.

Is it wise to have pyro with a dex/faith build?

I mean, to compensate the lack of range damage when you are out of arrows.

Well, yes of course it is wise to have a pyro on a dex/faith, cause of the maxed dexterity since the casting of fireballs is faster, it works especially nice with a chaos fireball. You can deny some portion of the ground for a short time. You should try a character like this, experimenting is the only way to be sure if it's viable or not.
