RH1 - Phosphorescent Pole + 5 / Crescent Uchigatana +5 (Actually any Crescent weapon you please)
RH2 - Kriss Blade +5 / Crescent Uchigatana +5
LH1 - Tailsman of Beasts / Wooden Catalyst / Insanity Catalyst (Whichever you prefer)
RH2 - Adjudicators Shield +5 (8 HP per sec) (Use weapons two handed so shield is only for Regen)

Equipment : Venerable Sage's Robe, Leggings, and Gauntlets. Head : Silver Coronet / Monk's Head Wrappings

@SL120, you'll have 204 Physical Def (before Warding) , 196 Mag def (without Magic enhancing items), and 177 Fire defense. The 15 Endurance will allow you to equip everything above and still be able to roll without the Ring of Great Strength.

Rings : Eternal Warrior's Ring (faster stamina Regen for low endurance)
Friend / Foe's Ring or Ring of Magical Sharpness

Recommended spells/miracles

Spells: Warding, Firestorm, Soul Ray or Warding, Fire Spray, Soul Ray, and Homing Soul Arrow

The three give you a balanced form of attack. Soul Ray to pressure those who try to heal, Firestorm for heavy damage and Warding to take on extra damage. In PvE Firestorm is rarely needed so feel free to sub in any spells you feel you need for the situation.

Miracles: PvE - Anti-Magic Field and Evacuate
PvP - None Really…. If you want to use God's Wrath just for fun, go ahead.

Gameplay tips and progression

The first thing you need to do is go get the Crescent Falchion in 4-1 but this may be a hard task in the early levels. So I suggest you stick around 1-1 and level up a bit while collecting some turpentine to help with the skeletons on 1-1. Once you feel comfortable with your level, go get that Crescent Falchion. After this it's entirely up to you. I ended up going to 3-1 and getting my Magical Ring of Sharpness and Monk's Head Wrappings. Some other things you should do early is get the Kriss Blade in 1-1 and the Adjudicators Shield in 4-1. Once you feel you are strong enough, now is the time to go get that Phosphorescent Blade from Rydell. This is hard but I there are many ways around this.. Just check out some tips here on the site or on youtube to beat him. With This Character I tend to lean towards the weapon combat then pull out the spells to surprise people when they think I have no magic.

This is my first build posted here on the site so any points or tips are welcome and encouraged.
