I play with a bandit and my opinion is that if you want a strong character with out magic go with the bandit

Is there any way to check one's equipment load? I see how much I can "wear" but I can't seem to find how much I already wear. Do I have to count every item or what?

You could try... but the class starts with the lowest intelligence of all, so it would take some leveling up to do...

Best class if you do not wish to cast spells and min/max. Though the game does feel really dead, there's still people who still play. Sometimes upwards of 2,000 players a day in 2019. Stats are great for melee builds, can easily power stance great or ultra weapons without leveling dex too much further, though you will need a lot strength. Also does Dexterity builds well. Has decent equip load, probably only class that can use the full set of drangleic armor without leveling for to do so. Great set up for a sword and board player. Lowest total caster stats (attunement/intelligence/faith). Alternatively, for 2 faith (bringing total to 10) or equipping the Black Hood from Straid (adds 2 faith and intelligence) You can use the Clerics Sacred Chime (Lowest faith requisite chime), Southern Ritual Band +2 (3 spell slots), and spice down miracles to 10 faith to cast them. Only costs a ring slot. Arguably this only let's you use healing miracles, as they will always heal set amounts over set amounts of time. Buff duration does scale with faith, and at 10 faith they will only last 10 seconds. And damaging miracles obviously get damage scaling, which at 10 faith would be... less than miraculous damage. Could possibly specialize in lightning weapons if you wish to meet the bare requirements of strength/dexterity and instead rely on faith as your main scaling stat and buff with lighting resin instead of a miracle buff.

You need to keep in mind that , if you're basing what you're seeing on steam charts, that's *concurrent* players, as in, number of people running the game at that exact moment in time. Dark Souls 2 is far from dead on Scholar, you're probably looking at 2k people hanging about on it at any one time and it's been holding fairly steady there for a few years now, with dozens of thousands playing on any given day at some point. However, there is probably a fair amount of offline play going on, so the results of that for co-operators or invaders is shaky.

This class is special in that you start with 3 adaptability which makes it so you have extremely low i-frames on roll. You will gain 0.1 second i-frame from the first i-frame breakpoint from agility to normalise your i-frames a bit instead of the normal 0.03 second i-frame gain. It will be 0.03 gains after but you start extra gimped in rolls. It also begins with 1 intelligence which makes straid of olaphis not sell spells or make boss weapons for you. You get special dialogue for how dumb you are lmao.

To be fair, you have to have a very low IQ to understand the bandit class. The playstyle is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of rolling i-frames most of the low int related bullying from npcs will go over a typical player's head.
