While leveling your character, you must invest souls into Dexterity the most and then Endurance and Vigot. You must reach 38 Vigor, 35 Endurance, and 85 Dexterity so as to have maximum damage out of Sellsword Twinblades. Other than that, have 12 Attunement, 15 Vitality, 10 Strength, 10 Intelligence, 15 Faith, and 9 Luck.

Equally leveling up Dex and STR will not give you the same damage numbers as much as you can get out by reaching 85 Dex.


The base versions of rings will also work with the Sellsword Twinblades build. However, we recommend that you grind and find +3 variants of two rings as suggested here. You will need to equip the following rings

  • Prisoner’s Chain
  • Hunter’s Ring
  • Ring of Favor+3
  • Chloranthy Ring+3
  • Warriors of Sunlight Covenant

Without these two +3 variants of rings, the overall damage output of the build will be significantly limited. On the subject of rings, check out our Dark Souls 3 best rings guide and learn everything about rings in the game.

Armor Pieces

When it comes to equipping armor, we do not recommend picking up a complete set. Instead, you must go with the individual armor pieces from different armor sets to have not only maximum damage but also increased damage resistance. Following are the armor pieces that we highly recommend you go with while rocking our Sellsword Twinblades build.

  • Head: Lapp’s Helm
  • Chest: Slave Knight Armor
  • Hands: Sunset Gauntlets
  • Legs: Lapp’s Leggings

Considering the SL120 level bracket we suggested above, and after equipping the armor pieces as well, you will have nearly 69% of equipped load on your character.
