As the name suggests, the Pure Strength is specialized around Strength. In other words, cursed weapons are extremely powerful.
The Pure Strengths strong suit is being able to increase Strength by 1.5 by wielding weapons with both hands. Due to this, a weapon with a 45 Strength requirement can be wielded with 30 Strength, and a weapon with a 99 Strength requirement, the max amount, can be wielded with 66 Strength. This makes this build recommendable to both veterens of the Souls series as well as complete beginners.
Cursed weapons differ from magic attacks in that they simply add onto a weapon's attack points. Using these weapons may require some changing some of your higher stats, but if you can use these weapons well, they are very effective in playthroughs.
The Strength-based Pure Strength is most utilized with crushing weapons that scale with Strength. In the beginning, we recommend to use the Battle Axe that can be found in Stonefang Tunnel.
|Mild Hammer||Iron Knuckles||Morning Star|
|Mace||Great Axe||Crescent Axe|
|Guillotine Axe||Battle Axe||Great Sword|
|Claymore||Bastard Sword||Northern Regalia|
|Long Sword||Short Sword||Halberd|
When using a unique weapon, we recommend the Dragon Bone Smasher or Bramd. Not only are these weapons strong, they both are a shape befitting of the title Pure Strength. However, be prepared to become extremely heavy. The Dragon Bone Smasher has a weight of 22 and Bramd is a heavy 36.
