Take your pick and dominate

The complexity and planning of your build will determine how effective it is in applied combat. Dark Souls 3 is a very complex game with a million different variables, each of which can massively affect your gameplay, be it negatively or positively. In this article, I will be listing some of the most overpowered builds and what makes them powerful in the first place.

5. Bleed Build

How to set the Bleed build up

The Bleed build is particularly useful when it comes to smaller weapons that can land many subsequent hits on bosses and enemies alike. Using weapons with innate Bleed, such as some daggers and applying Carthus Rouge, you can get increase your Bleed stat considerably. Once you stack up enough hits on an enemy, the debuff procs, causing heavy damage. This build is excellent for players who prefer a more aggressive, in-your-face playstyle. It can also prove to be very useful in many situations that require an aggressive approach, like a large boss with poor mobility you can punish with a lot of hits.

What makes the Bleed build overpowered: 

  • High burst damage
  • Good for aggressive players
  • High mobility
  • High attack speed

4. Sorcery Build

How to set the Full Intelligence build up

There are very few things that come close to a raw Intelligence build when it comes to damage. The Intelligence build path focuses heavily on Sorceries to deal damage over great distances, keeping safe most of the time. Since there are so many different Sorceries to choose from, you are free to mix and match spells to suit your needs, from shooting giant lasers to buffing your weapons to deal magic damage. This build is a jack of trades since you can apply it to any situation.

What makes the Full Intelligence build overpowered:

  • Very high damage
  • Versatile
  • Extremely useful
  • Adaptable
  • Fun

The combination of high damage, good scaling, and a monstrous moveset is what makes it stand out from other weapons in a way that is both powerful and iconic. You can get them as a starting weapon when you select the Mercenary class, so they are quite strong from the beginning of the game. Choose this weapon if you want a reliable experience that is easier than usual.

2. Lightning Priest

How to set the Lightning Priest build up

The Lightning Priest build focuses on offensive Miracles and Pyromancy. This combination can prove to be quite deadly when utilized properly alongside a strong weapon that deals either Lightning or Fire damage, as the synergy between the spells and weapons is just too good to pass up. When you play as a Lightning Priest, you are going to be mixing long-range Miracles with close-range Pyromancy and, if the need arises, melee attacks with your weapon of choice. This build is excellent for players who want to have more variety to choose from, and those who want to utilize the more underappreciated classes of Dark Souls 3.

What makes the Lightning Priest build overpowered:

  • High variety
  • Great damage
  • Reliable melee damage
  • Good for many situations

The weapon of choice is, of course, the Fume Ultra Greatsword and the primary Sorcery is Crystal Magic Weapon. With the proper stat investments, you can expect to be dealing some massive damage with this combination! The Fume Ultra Greatsword is a monster by itself, but when you buff it, not only does it get bigger, but it also has more damage. The rest is self-explanatory.
