Builds for Salt and Sanctuary will go on this page. Please fill in the table below with the basic information of your build and use the "Build" template to create a page for, naming it whatever you call your build.
|Pauper||2H Shikeimaru + 2H Naginata||
|Wrecking Knight 4000||Knight||Greatswords||If you start out as a knight, start with a Amber idol. Pick up the Rogue set and the bombs. Now unequip that silly shield because you wont be needing it. Git gud and dodge his attacks and finish him off with your bombs. After that you want to rush to the Sunken keep. Dont forget to pick up the Greatsword there. Level up your greatsword to at least level 2 you can level it up to 3 if you so would like. After that go to the forest area in the sunken keep of course. You'll need 4000 salt so make sure you have that when you get there. Join the Stone Roots creed and talk with the alchemist to transmute your Great sword into the Shrouded bulkward. Put everything into strength and make sure you have swordfighter class 2 for the Shrouded bulkward. And transmuting it will cghghghghghgou'll use to remove your sin. For the rest of the game you'll be putting in points into strength, health pots and dont forget to get at least 2 buffs from the creed devotion. It will help out a lot. You'll be stuck with the Shrouded bulkward till you get to the Disemboweled Husk. After that you'll get the Seawolf Cutlass. Keep on putting everything you've got into levels. Oh and make sure you dont forget to pick up the pumpkin head in the forest area at the sunken keep. It will help you out a alot. You'll do sick damage and all the bosses health bars will melt away to smitherines and you'll feel great about yourself. No heavy armour though. Light armour or you stick to the rogue set. You dont want to put too many levels into anything else but strength. Good luck, have fun and git gud.|
Fight to and kill Sodden Knight then go buy three Locks of Hair from hobo under the knight get blacksmith armor and wear the glove only no other armor on and level strength and dex equaly until you feel like stopping Dex then keep leveling strength. Grab the Blessed Pages before Queen of Smiles then kill Queeen of Smiles (feel free to use A Blessed Page, only use one on each fight unless you buy extra) grab the Haymaker that is after her fight along with the bloodflower charm, upgrade the Haymaker as much as you can and buy five blessed pages and two Stained Pages to absolutely destroy the next three bosses and I think doing great against the next five as long as you're using holy. But you need to get a drowned bandits ear to make the Harmen Mace and when you do make the Harmen Mace upgrade as much as you can then use it against the Kreaken Wyrm (Use holy) and Tree of Men (Use holy). But use the Haymaker against the Disembowled Husk (Use holy), Untouched Inquisitor (Use arcane), and The Third Lamb (Use arcane) then change the weapons however you like for the rest of the game. Gl hf!
GREAT HAMMER -
|Just pour points all your points into the Greathammer line and use the strongest Greathammer you can get your hands on. (Most OP Weapon, So No skill needed) Go wreck the game.|
|2H Holy Knight||Knight||High Damage and high defense, augmented by class 2 prayers: Divine Armor, Blessed Weapon, and Divine Will.|
Designed for the "Naked" and "No Blocking" challenge runs. Focus on Strength (Specifically swords and greathammers) for leveling up. Get the Kureimoa ASAP and you will upgrade it to the Chitin Obelisk and eventually the Scharfrichter. Your other set will be a greathammer for enemies weak against strike damage. You can upgrade this to whatever, but keep in mind your equipment load. This goes without saying, but obviously get and use the Bloodflower charm after the Queen of Smiles boss fight. Git gud at dodging and the game becomes a cakewalk.
Also I am not Lobos Jr. I just thought the name fit for this build!
|The Titan||Paladin||2H Greathammers Tower Shields(Optional) Any Heavy Armor||
This build is soley based on Endurance due to the weapon and armor you equip. Strength will also be a key part in this so be sure to have it for a lot of heavy hits and also make you have Bloodflower Charm.
Recommend Class Level: 3-5 for Weapon and Armor. Shields must be at 3
|THE ONE TRUE SALTBORNE||Pauper||Doesn't Matter||GET EVERYTHING ON THE SKILL TREE!|
|Equal Str and Dex while Going up the Pikeman and Heavy armor skill branches. Haymaker is in village of smiles, uppgrade to Red Eclipse at red hall of cages, uppgrade to Gravedigger at the ruined temple. You can get White Knight set for doing the fetch quest for Fern as soon as you hit the far beach after the fort beyong the mire. (Say yes, then say no to his question after giving the bag of dirt).|
Stats : 50 => Magic / Willpower
Focus on increasing your magic (staves path not wand ) and your willpower.
With the mage stone buy the first staff ( scrimshaw cane ) and lightning bolt it will be easier at this point.
Found the creed "Keeper of fire and sky" and buy "flame barrage".
Upgrade your staff into "Siara's staff" after defeating the "The witch of the lake" (100 000 salt to upgrade ! ).
Increase your devotion to your creed ( Keeper of fire and sky ) to the max in order to obtain the most powerfull spell of the game "Dragonfire".
When your going to upgrade your devotion to your creed take a few sky crystal ( buff your magic damage) and clarity ( regain focus on every hit you make ).
Enjoy wrecking the game ! ( Even in NG+ )
|ONE-PUNCH MAN||Paupers (People want a challenge) or Paladin (For Beginners)||
No Hat/Helmet Jester Top. Crimson Gloves, and any pants
Focus on getting your Strength up ASAP, recommended going towards the Macefighter/Beserker Skills cause there are a lot more Strength stats. Then goto Swordfighter and Polearms Skills for Dexerity and Strength. You will need Willpower for Stamina reasons as well.
Enjoy the, ONE-PUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNCH run.
|Max Poison||Chef, Thief or Hunter||Poison loadout +
Both are customizable
|Stacking multiple poison inflicting and poison complimentary features to achieve very fast poison build up, while also being able to combat poison immune/resistant enemies or capitalize on already poisoned foes.|
|Blessed of Devara||Cleric||Focus on Prayers. Light of Devara dependant for exclusive prayers. Holy Damage Buffs + Defensive Buffs + Guardian Blade = Righteous Fury. Lay waste to the enemies of light, Saltborn!|
Obsidian pillar + heavy armours
|The whole idea is to have your trusty pillar buffed with a stained page (item buffs are superior to spell buffs) while your enemies are debuffed with a flask of defilement, you have to be in the betrayer creed. There are some other weapons that can work as well but pillar is the best due to have the higher base damage in the entire game (buff damage is dependant on base weapon damage); with this setup you can beat higher ng+ cycles while the average greathammer builds will become meh.|
Greatsword + Heavy Armor
|The build is simple, but efficient. Start out with The Three as your covenant, and then proceed through the game, grabbing the Claymore (Or however it is spelled in this game) along the way . At the Village of Smiles, after securing the sanctuary, go to the area where you get the Pumpkin Helm, and kill the four Saltless there. If you need help, use gold to buy three Locks of Hair from the Trinkets Vendor to buff your sword, and use a leader to get two imperial pitchfires from skullbats and the drowned type enemy that is required. You can easily farm the Saltless with minimal difficulty. Keep doing so until you can buy the Sodden Knight's armor off of the Trinkets vendor, and sufficient locks of hair to raise it to +2. In addition, farm some drowned lockets off of the Saltless as well. Do not use an alchemist to change your claymore to the Shrouded Bulwark until you've used a soldier's poem to buff it once. With the Drowned Lockets you farmed off of the Saltless, you can increase the Bulwark all the way to +4. From there, it's just a matter of continuously increasing your armor and weapons, and increasing stats to match. When you beat Carsejaw The Cruel, you can buy his armor and use his sword instead. When you beat the final boss, you can take the ending that gives you his armor, and get his greatsword. Sodden Knight, Carsejaw The Cruel, and The Final Boss, you can cruise through the game cosplaying all three!|
Tachi + Light Armors
|The Tachi is a top notch weapon that can be obtained pretty dang early. Add the stone charm, frayed sugegasa, and some cool armor, and you are set to shred everything in the game. Follow the link for more details. This will appeal to anyone who likes to roll through these kinds of games at top speed.|
|Heavy samurai||Knight or paladin||
Armor: frayed sugegasa, cavalier's cuirass, tainted gauntlets, umbral rhinegraves
|This build have more visual improvement, than practical. If you are going to create blend of european and japanese style, then this is what you will like. Set kureimoa in two-handed mode for better attacks. As secondary weapon you can take, for example, the gravedigger, if you want to use two loadouts. Due to excluding the shield from this build, mobility improvements will be required, such as wrapped link for faster rolls and fused metal ring for higher endurance, also mossy ring will be very useful for stamina regeneration, but you can take any other set of rings for your purposes.|
|Nikolas The Elite Torturer||Hunter||
|Go for tier 5 wips at first ignoring other skills. When reached put it all in dexterity until you wont get pistol. Upgrade it as you wish and get marksman perks. Go on putting all in dexterity. Thats all. Try Splendior's hous covenant.|
Swords, Greatswords, Light Armor, Wands
|This is a good build with lots of versatility. Get tier 5 Swords, Tier 4 magic user, Tier 3 Wands (at least), and put the rest towards light armor and magic. I recommend the Tachi or Steel Centipede in your mainhand (until you can get Branding Iron or Shikeimaru) and whatever the best wand you have is in your offhand (you can get the Antler Baton fairly early). In your other set, use a magic scaling greatsword with Mossy Charm. The Black Widow wrecks things early game, so I recommend you get that as soon as possible. The armor in this game is situational, so switch it up however you need. I keep the Crimson Gloves on for the magic boost, and the Frayed Sugegsasa is useful for greatswording. This playstyle is very fun and lets you tackle situations in basically any way you want. Swords and wands have satisfying combos with each other, and you can spam your magic without fear of running out of focus. Have fun, wreck dudes, etc.|
|Dishwasher||Knight, tristini origin||Armor: ragged hakama, frayed sugegasa
Weapons: tachi with stone charm, stone cleaver with bloodflower charm
Rings: bloodluster's ring, wrapped link, mossy ring, bloodflower ring
|This build will allow you to play as Dishwasher from the self-titled game. Short and clear.|
|L Lawliet cosplay||Tristini origin, fernwreath hairstyle of raven color, black eyes, no beard, any class||No helmet, no gloves, priest's dalmatic, jute breeches||Cosplay of L from the anime "Deathnote".|
|Ken Kaneki Cosplay||Kar'hi or Kadania, unkempt hairstyle of cloud color, no beard, red eyes, thief class||Split mask, silver udewa, assassin's tunic, assassin's leggings||Cosplay of Ken Kaneki from the anime "Tokyo ghoul".|
