To do this build, equip a Fire Uchi Katana in the left hand and a Jellyfish shield.

Make your katana deal more damage by adding buff with a flaming strike. This makes the katana leave fire damage. Aside from that, you can use Ice Lightning at the same time. This means that you can land fire and lightning damage to the enemy.

Along with the deadly weapon combo, you also have with you your Jellyfish shield. Aside from its role to counter attacks, it also allows you to use contagious fury to enhance your damage after you are buffed with the lighting sword.

Meaning to say, you can have a 908 attack rating with just having a shield and one sword on hand.


Besides your weapons and shields, it is also important to consider the armor to use.

For this build, use the Okina Mask. Aside from the fact that it gives you the Samurai look, it also grants you an additional three dexterity.

Blades armor is also good for this one. Aside from making you more durable, it also gives off a vibe of both a knight and a samurai. Plus, there is also an extra 56 poise.

With this build, you can absorb and trade a lot of damage to build up your attack power.


To further increase your flaming strike and ice lightning sword damage, use Shard of Alexander as your talisman. To support this talisman, use also Millicent’s Prosthesis.

Using Millicent’s Prosthesis gives your character five additional dexterity. This also allows you to increase your damage as you land continuous attacks.

Rotten Winged Sword Insignia also helps in improving your damage for continuous attacks. The last one is the Dragoncrest Greatshield Talisman to make your character tougher and stronger.
