General Information

In Dark Souls 3, your starting class defines how you play at the beginning, but not what he/she will be like late in the game. With an assortment of stats, weapons and spells to choose from, there is a great range of customization. Each character build isn't necessarily the same as another.

In this page you will find a variety of player-created character builds: how the stats are distributed, what equipment to use, what spells to remember, and maybe even gameplay tips. If you don't see a character build you like, feel free to contribute! Of course, none of these are hard and fast rules on how to play the game.

To search only within the build pages, use category:pvebuild or category:pvpbuild in the search.

  • To add an image to your build, attach the image file to the page and in the form field 'Build Image' add the image filename.
  • Once you have added the image, add the 'jpg' tag to your build page by clicking on the 'Tags' option at the bottom of the page.
  • This will tell the stylesheet to show your image.
  • I'd recommend keeping the resolution similar to the images on the testpages, otherwise the table may get distorted.
