    Build Overview

    Players seeking a Strength build requiring less raw power and brute force should put some points into Faith, though not for lightning-base ranged miracles. Using the Lightning Blade miracle to buff one's weapon with lightning damage so that even foes with great physical defense won't be able to get off light from damage trades.

    This is a relatively simple tactic that has many variants, though, the reason for this is because it is a tried and true method of taking enemies out in both PvE and PvP.


    PVP Tips

    Flexibility is what makes this one of the best Strength builds in Dark Souls 3, as being able to hit hard, parry, and deal with incoming spells essentially sets one up to deal with any kind of foe save crazy niche ones or the occasionally one-shot builds.

    Observe one's opponent to see whether they plan to utilize ranged or melee attacks and then act accordingly: for ranged foes, chase them down and don't give them time to cast spells by making use of running and jumping attacks, though, for melee threats, one should be a bit more cautious and maybe mix in a parry attempt between repeatedly bringing down one's Greataxe upon the enemy's skull.


    PVE Tips

    Having access to miracles is always convenient, as there are plenty of healing and buff spells that players can make use of in combination with their main weapon. Being capable of doing lightning damage will also make things easier, as there are many kinds of enemies that are weak to this element. Between that and the physical power of one's Greataxe, there shouldn't be anything that can stand in the player's way with this build.
