|Gameplay tips and progression||
A FAITH + DEX build. Centers around getting enough END to wear heavy armor and still roll properly, enough STR to wear heavy weapons, enough VIT to where the player is comfortable, then simply pumping DEX and FAITH until sick of leveling. This allows great use of Blessed Weapons (the mirdan hammer works great all around), the Large Sword of Moonlight, Istarelle, as well as Tearing weapons and Sharp weapons. If interested in farming, damage with a Viscous Compound Long Bow+5 is outstanding due to high DEX. If the player is confident, putting any points into Magic is too many. As far as spells, Slow Recovery can easily outstrip bleeding or poison at later levels (thanks to the high FAITH), Anti-Magic Field can help in PvP, or One Time Revival, up to the players preference.
This has been played up to slvl 200, and has proven incredibly effective. Final major stats were 40 VIT (decent HP pool), 40 END (maximum amount of stamina), 30 STR (wear things properly), 60 DEX (damage) and 65 FAITH (damage), sticking with Slow Recovery, Evacuate and Anti-Magic Field, occasionally switching to One Time Revival for miracles. Alternatively, Cure can be utilized for world 5, as well as PVP usage against cloud users, as Anti-Magic Field/One Time Revival cannot stack with Slow Recovery miracle.
