I just picked up DS and I'm currently in the earlier stages of the game. I picked the soldier class because I heard it's easiest to get a feel for melee combat.
After a serious bit of messing around in the first level(s) of every world, I am currently a soul level 44 with these stats:
I want to take this in either a faith or a dex direction. Keep in mind: the primary purpose of this build is to BEAT THE GAME, while the secondary purpose is mess around a bit in NG+ with some PVP thrown in for good measure. I'm not one to beat games like these more than once, so this is likely the only build I'll be playing.
Should I go with faith or dex? why?
