Gameplay tips and progression

"You have the potential to grow even stronger." - Lenneth Valkyrie

First of all, this is my very first guide. Please forgive me if there are a lot of typos =D
and Special Thanks to Nick1Nintendo, Amazing Mage player. The best among the rest.

Alright!! Let's do this!!

How to maximize this build:

For neophytes, it's extremely crucial to practice a lot of dodge a.k.a roll spamming if you're using this build for your first character. A lot of patience is also needed since you're going through the game twice to get all the spells (I KNOW DEMON'S SOULS IS UNFORGIVING T__T) but on top of that farming, for the Dark Silver Shield +5, and Crescent Estoc +5. Thus I can offer my services a.k.a armory at level 50 which is the midpoint of this build. I suggest you PM me via PSN (ID: Aztreal) first to get my armory set up and supply you with all the items listed in the equipment list.

Combination is a MUST!!

Most Mage Builds, rely on this and you should use your spells on the exact moment or you will surely die and utilize your weapon, don't forget to back stab / riposte. Variation of spells can affect your chances of survival and make sure you know the phantom range of each weapon.

The Pros:

Higher HP means longer survival ability
Low Str and Dex = More Firepower for Magic
Higher Magic BS Damage which can go through Warding
Direct Magic Damage can do One-Hit KOs
Can win against a group of jumpers if used properly
No Weapon Buffs therefore no hassle spicing too much
Can switch from CQC to Range by switching weapons

The Cons:

Low Stamina means Fewer Rolls and Attacks
Few Weapon Choice
Beat new game plus to achieve which means a #$%^

In conclusion, (I'm a very bad writer LOL jk) Spell Pierce can either make you one of the strongest player in PVP or I can totally mess you up if used incorrectly. I hope you learned a lot from this build. May fate be with you.
