Recommended equipment

Right hand: Sharp Estoc+5
Talisman of Beasts(Can also be used in left hand if wanted)
Any back-up weapon that is sharp, or a bow. Or the Epee rapier because that will go well with a shield.
Left hand: Sharp Parrying Dagger+5
Talisman of beasts if wanted
Any back-up weapon that is sharp, or a bow
Either hand: Talisman of beasts
If you don't like the idea of parrying with the Parrying Dagger you can equip another sharp weapon, or even better a dark silver shield+5.
you can also make one of your weapons into a mercury weapon if like the idea of having poison properties.

Armor: Black leather, Rogues armor, Shaman armor, any armor that will allow you to roll around with 30 endurance, if you want you can equip ring of gs and wear heavy armor, but i prefer to have two rings and one of them not being ring of gs. If you want to go heavy you should be able to manage Fluted or even more. I don't know i haven't tested it.

Rings: EW ring is always fun to have, Ring of avarice( For soul farming if you want) Ring of gs(For heavy armor) Dull rats ring or
clever rats ring. I had a hard time finding really good rings for this build but i definitely recommend the EW ring. Throwing knives are always fun to have, don't forget them! Sticky white stuff if you dont want to use light weapon.

Recommended spells/miracles

Spells: Warding, Poison cloud, Death cloud, light weapon/curse weapon if you want.
I personally prefer warding but warding will get rid of your 2-chance miracle, so its your choice. If you want to up your magic past 15 to get the 3rd magic slot be my guest it is probably a good idea.

Miracles: Second-Chance, Wrath of god if you really want it.,Evacuate for farming, and Anti-Magic field if you really want to be lame.

Gameplay tips and progression

This build is really hard to use, it is definitely not the best, and i wouldn't recommend it to any first timers.

In 1-1 all you need is the thief's ring and kill Ostrava for the M key.After beating the first level 1-1 you should go to 4-1 to get the crescent falchion, get the adjudicator's shield and the regenerators ring, along with the compound long bow. I would recommend beating the whole level, it really makes it easy if you have 1 or 2 blue phantoms with you. Now you should be able to go through 2-1 really easily, just bring a bow with 100-200 arrows for the boss, your crescent falchion will be more than enough to kill everything in the level. After 2-1 you should be ready for 3-1. 3-1 has all the items you will be using in this character(Well most of them) you will need pure white world tendency for the parrying dagger. So get your estoc and parrying dagger and black leather and you are set. Now you just need to farm some sharp stone!(A LOT OF IT) If it is too much trouble you can just do the whole mephistopheles thing, in other words get your character tendency to pure black and kill her. Also do not forget about 2-2 scirvir you will need pure black world tendency, then you will have to kill him for the ToB. To get the EW ring you will need to kill Doran, to do this the easy way just wear the thief's ring and use poison cloud and watch him die a pathetic death.

PvP: This build takes a lot of PRACTICE. You need great timing on the parry with your dagger, but if you master it you will never get hit.You can always roll around and try for the backstab, but it can be hard to pull off on seasoned players. This build works great it tight corridors, but watch out for Spearmen with Shields, they are your DOOM! If you run into a spellcaster quickly take out your ds shield. If you are fighting out in the open against someone who is using NR or DBS you will most likely have to parry or dodge a lot, you can always go in for the back stab. If you get them into a corner even better, you can just keep poking them till they are dead. It is definitely a hard build to use but it is a lot of fun! I am not entirely sure what the Sl will be when all stats are reached but i think you will have some extra stats before sl 120.
