This could be a moon kilij or a dragon great axe or Northern Regalia… Almost anything really.

  • Dark Silver Shield +5
  • Talisman of Beasts

To get more from your spells, you could also include a Kris Blade +5 instead of your backup weapon.

Other weapons to consider getting and utilizing are Baby's Nail +5, Makoto +5, Morion Blade and Stormruler for some easy R&R time.


  • Male: Ancient King's Set
  • Female: Binded Set

Mix as much Black Leather, Sage Robes, etc. in so you can roll efectively.



  • Cling Ring
  • Friend's/Foe's Ring


  • Clever Rat's Ring
  • Personal preference (EW's Ring, Dull Rat's, RoMS, etc.)
Recommended spells/miracles

Anything your heart desires; within 5 spell slots of course.

You could do…
Soul Ray/Fireball/Death Cloud
Cloak/Firestorm/Poison Cloud (Acid for dishonorables)
Firespray/Light Weapon/HSA

Possibilities are quite endless and with 5 slots, you should be well equipped for any situation.

Gameplay tips and progression

First of, I explain.

I don't have the game but hopefully I will acquire the NA version early-September. Thus, I thought about what kind of character I wanted to make. I studied other builds for some time and decided on a BBS build. Then a spellsword. Then a faith build.

I couldn't make a decision. Then I thought my BBS character some more after watching some epic PVP videos and thought back to an old comment on Nick1Nintendo's build about using the Blueblood Sword. To which the response was of course no. The sword is reliant on luck obviously.

But what if it doesn't have to?

If I recall, the base AR on a BBS (7 luck) is something like 250ish. Or in other words, crap. Moon weapons do way better than that. But can they be enchanted? No. Using Light Weapon on the BBS should bring it into acceptable damage ranges, enough to crack SC on a simple combo at the very least. This train of thought came some testing done by someone here on the Wiki. Who and where I don't remember so if it's you who did such testing, just post and I'll give credit. And since you don't have points invested in luck anymore, now you can spread out a bit more and reach 45 VIT, 30 INT, and 40 MAG.

At least, that's the idea. I guess, in a nutshell, this is just a possibly lame variation on the typical spellsword. I mainly did this page just to get feedback and bounce ideas off of more experienced players than me. (I borrowed the game for a week and started a BBS build without meaning to LOL; so not much gameplay experience here.)

Anyways, if this build is a success and earns a general seal of approval, I may add some basic tips and textbook style progression for the new kids on the scene, along my (eventual) experiences with it.
