i've decided to try and create a build that can get one shot kills in PvP, obviously this means the use of RTSR, i'm undecided at the minute if ought to use power within and sanctus but my main concern is a weapon, maybe something with thrust attacks for leo ring? any thoughts or help?

RTR and Power Within go great with sorceries, if you don't mind doing that. If you'd rather use weapons, don't forget to throw the dragon roar on top of it all for even more power, and being rank 3 in the Path of the Dragon covenant will slightly boost the boost you get from it. Alternatively, you can stay in long enough to get the torso stone and then switch to Darkmoon for the strongest weapon buff, which can be used in conjunction with all the above.

The Leo Ring might not be all that necessary, since spears and other thrusting weapons don't do a whole lot in the first place and even a 40%-ish boost in power won't put them above the damage output of something like a Greatclub. Of course, they are much easier to hit with and they allow you to attack with a shield at the same time, so they're worth considering. Not to mention that long poking range...

Have you considered the Demon's Spear?

i hadn't thought about the use of weapon buffs but the addition of darkmoon blade is definitely something i'll try and incorporate now, Demons spear might be useful, i'll give it a try, thank you! :D

Ah... the Demon's Spear can't be buffed, by the way. So if you wanted to do that, you'll have to use a different spear. You might want a backup weapon in case the buff runs out though, so it could be worth having one to switch to in that case.

i had thought about that, other problems i've realized are if i were to use darkmoon blade that means being in the darkmoon blade and i'd rather stick with the dragon covenant so i won't be buffing unless there's another weapon that could outdo the demon spear on damage like the pike or partizan maybe...

There's always Sunlight Blade and Crystal Magic Weapon.

i set the build on mugen to use slb but this means levels into faith and cmw means into int which could work against the damage in comparison to something buffed with a resin, i'll work out which does higher dmg though, so thanks :D
