This build focuses on using the Llewellyn armor set and creating a character that is pure melee with fast attacks. There are some strict rules to follow with this build and are outlined below:
4. Arms, legs and head can be outfitted as you wish, but keep it inline with a Nights' Watch feel. i.e. No Havel helms, Looking Glass Knight helms etc.. Keep the helm simple… or if you're feeling like a true ranger, then no helm at all!
6. No weapons that have innate elemental damage or weapons that can self buff. NO MAGIC PURE AND SIMPLE!!
Daggers, Straight Swords, Greatswords, Thrusting Swords, Axes, Hammers, Spears, Halberds, Bows, Crossbows, Small Shields and Shields.
Ultra Greatswords, Curved Swords, Curved Greatswords, Katanas, Great Hammers, Lances, Reapers, Whips, Claws, Great Bows and Great Shields.
Everything else is pretty much up to you. The Raw infusion rule does make things tough but you are a member of the Nights' Watch. Be creative! Use knives, items and skill to win the day.
Below I have formulated an example stat investment, but feel free to adjust it to whatever weapon takes your fancy. Just remember the rules!
The equipment I use with the above build:
Drakekeeper Helm (cool looking and kind of fits the feel),
Llewellyn Armor (of course),
Havel's Guantlets (the only piece out of this set that looks ok),
Drakekeeper Boots (for more black badassness).
Drakekeeper's Sword, Dagger, Llewellyn Shield, Third Dragon Ring, Ring of Giants+2, Life Ring+2, Stone Ring.
