Hey all. I would like to showcase you a build I am enjoying in PvE and PvP.

The goal : *extreme* single hit damage. I am talking about 1000-1200 a hit with a buffed weapon with a R2, with instant kill backstabs, while still being able to move swiftly with high amount of stamina regen.

I picked Explorer as starting, because it seemed the best starting class for this build it starts with 12 ADP and has only 5/5 INT/Faith.


Stats and why

Vigor = 50, nice having a high health pool

Endurance = 45, Heavy weapons consume fair amount of stamina, with high amount of stamina this allows you to pool more stamina while being under 50% equipment load so you can roll more often as well.

VIT = 39 With 39 VIT you can pretty much wear alot of good / semi-heavy armor and still be below 50% equipment load.

ATN = 20, which gives you four spell slots gives you some variation with different kind of Pyromancy spells.

STR = 20, 18 is required to 2-hand the Malformed Skull. 20 is required to wear Havel, if you don't want to wear Havel you can go with 18.

DEX = 7, You need 7 DEX for the Malformed Skull

ADP = 12 (Base)

Faith/Intellect = 5 (base)


The Gear

Right hand
+10 Fire infused Malformed Skull 514+171 damage

+10 Mace - backup weapon

Left hand
Blossom Kite Shield - roughly 5% stamina regen, 4 weight, worth it imo.

+10 Pyromancy flame

No head piece - I don't wear a headpiece, because that lets me stay below 50% equipment load, also I like to see my character so that's the second reason for not wearing a headpiece.

Smelting Demon's Armor, Looking Glass Knight Armor, or Old Knight Looking Armor - I picked Smelting Demon because it looks the nicest to me. Looking Glass Knight is heavier and has abit more defense, Old Knight Armor is lighter and could score you 1-2 more END or ADP, how you wanna put it.

Havels Boots + Gloves - Most poise per weight, don't look too bad with SD.Armor

Third Dragon Ring/Royal Soldier's Ring +2 - to achiev 50% equipment load

Cloranthy ring - Gives roughly 8.5% Stamina regen, worthed period.

4th ring - Up to you I swap between Knuckle Ring +2 so Malformed skull doesn't break to fast, since it has only 20 durability. Life Ring +2 is also an option, can never go wrong with more health otherwise you can use an elemental defense ring if you don't like above mentioned rings.

This puts me below 50% equipment burden, able to recover stamina relatively fast for a heavy armor/weapon build also don't forget about Green Blossoms!

Flame Weapon
Great Combustion
Chaos Storm
Warmth or Great Fireball. I personally pick Warmth while invading and Great Fireball otherwise.


General explanation

1. Buff your weapon with Flame Weapon

2. Use Green Blossom

It's a hard build to play, very open to backstabs and punishment.

A rolling R1 will hit people 800+ damage, a forward R2 1000+. Backstabs will almost always 1-shot people if you are buffed up, and if they aren't stacking HP/50 Vigor.

This build also crushes PvE. Every hit is 1000+ on bosses, it 1-shots almost every enemy in the game. Again, be very careful of the low durability of Malformed Skull in PvE as it tends to break fast. If you use this weapon in PvE farm multiple Malformed Skulls or heavily stock up on Repair Powder.

Dedicated Servers

Such dedicated servers.

So stuck with 5 days without a computer, because my motherboard died (still waiting for a RMA e-mail...) I went ahead and ordered new parts namely motherboard + CPU.

Motherboard of choice was the Arock z97 Killer even came out 1 week ago which is perfect! I really like the board, also boot times are very very, you only get to see the Asrock boot screen for a split second then it boots windows which was noticeably longer with my Asus P8z68 Deluxe.

I went for a budget CPU, because I didn't feel like spending almost 300 euro at this time. The 4670k is still an excellent CPU with abit OC/tweaks it still has great performance.

Nice temps even for clocked at stock.

Dat plunge

Sennheiser Momentum

Today I want to talk about the Sennheiser Momentum and share my thoughts on these headphones.  First off I'm happy to say I finally got rid of terrible  Beats by Dre headphones.

The Momentum are a stylish hifi model designed to look and feel good whereever you use them. They are available in two colors dark brown leather and black leather with red stiches.

The beatiful leather pads and headbands feel extremely comfortable due to the use of the very best quality leather available and they stay on the head well considering the clamping force is minimum which I always found an issue using the Beats by Dre headphones. The clamping force with the Beats was usually rather tight for me so after long listening sessions you'd notice the clamping force.

The Momentum are small enough to make a great travel headphones, but they also work well at home by using it with your hifi setup, computer, or with the TV.

Included with the momentem are headphone cable with smart controlls also with a second standard handphone cable, however it does not have a fancy jack as this cable. Unfortunately the smart controlls only are supported by iphone and on other devices such as android only the middle button and mic are supported, but not the volume buttons.

So how do they sound? Sennheiser has found a comfortable and yet fun and warm sound which is at the right side of relaxed. You get plenty detail and instrument seperation and never step into fatigue terrotory. Sound stage is short, but imaging is impressive considering the size of the cups. The sound will work well for commuters and business travelers or anyone who likes warm clean reproduction. Sound signature generally works well across all genres. They certainly don't feel boring, and bass drums have a satisfying through the eardrum, the momentum are smooth without getting sluggish.

Only a few headphones will perform and offer the same luxery as the Sennheiser Momentum for its price range. So these headphones are some of the very best headphones you can buy with 300 bucks.

And that's my thoughts on the Sennheiser Momentum, lightweight design with attractive looks comfortable fit and excellent build quality.

Thanks for reading and happy listening!

Sound quality - 70/100
Build Quality - 95/100
Comfort - 70/100
Final score - 73/100

So, I decided to get a new phone, ofcourse it would be an Android phone. After owning an iPhone and iPad ther are so many more possibilities on Android platform, and there's to many limitations on iOS. Although having an iPad is great for mere reading eBooks, manga, movies,music and surfing the internet.

Moving on..

A look on the box.

A look on the phone

Manual and accessories inside.

3 phones lined up to eachother.

Closer look from the side.


Haven't played with it much yet, but I love the design from the phone. Compared to the Samsung Galaxy series the case of the phone is made of aluminium, and not plastic. The design looks great and it's not from plastic. The 4,7 inch screen is great the screen is a little wider and longer than the iphone. I think the size is just perfect while being bigger than usual it's just not to big.
