Dex, you need dex also
I'm doing a build like this but no shield and better armor (for fashion and damage absorption)
Using the axe as well, but I suck at parrying so rather than using a shield I went with extra armor (winged knight set is a nice choice). Frankly anyone without some real high vigor will go down in a combo or one strong attack.
