Dark Souls 3 - PvP character creation guide/checklist by Warmag2

Simply put, this is a guide for creating a PvP char in DS3 with the minimum hassle recquired, it fulfills these recquirements:
  • grants most of the spells
  • grants all gestures
  • grants all multiplayer items
  • keeps the maximum amount of areas multiplayer-capable (i.e. the boss is alive)
  • 14/+9 estus if you want to keep Aldritch alive, full 15/+10 otherwise
This guide is not in-depth and not concerned with finding specific items of any kind, because it assumes you can transfer everything down from your NG++ characters. Neither does it list detailed locations for the items it recommends to find. It is meant to be a time-efficient way to run through the game in an order, which produces an optimal result in the PvP sense and following it fulfills all the requirements for granting untransferable, once-per-playthrough features and items.

As such, the guide does not recquire NG+, but being in NG+ has obviously some advantages (such as the possibility of being able to obtain all the spells).

I will try to keep updating this as errors are noticed. The formatting is as such that first I tell what to do in the area and then, whether the boss should be kept alive or not.
