Gameplay tips and progression

Low Level Meat Clever Build (Temple Knight)
Level: 22, cost approx 30k souls
Vit: 11
Int: 18
End: 13
Str: 18-19 (Hands of God at 19)
Dex: 12
Mag: 6
Fai: 16
Luc: 7

Notes:
The base build is a low level two-handed clever build with the Adjudicator’s Shield or ToB on your back (regen or curse weapon).
You can use the Compound Short Bow for sniping, Baby's Nail for shield fighting/plague, and throw Kunai for poison/range.
You can use the Hands of God for some fun variety.

There is a key difference in your use of colored souls and bows at certain soul levels - if staying at level 22 to 38 you'd use them on Adjudicator's Shield. If driving to 68 or beyond you'd probably use them on the Dark Silver Shield. You'd also abandon the Compound Short Bow for the Compound Long Bow on your way to 68, and for the White Bow on your way past 83. See the “Path to 120” table.

Equipment:
Meat Clever (club + 2-2 and 4-1 souls)
Baby's Nail (3-1 boss fight)
Compound Short Bow (1-2, upgrade to quality, sticky or regular – maybe try all 3!)
Cracked ToB (2-2 PBWT) {ToG comes w/ base class}
Adjudicator's Shield (4-1, colorless souls here)
Kunai (4-2 vendor)
Silver Coronet (3-1)
Black Leather Armor (3-1)
Clever Rat’s Ring (3-1)
Cling Ring (1-1)
Thief’s Ring (1-1)
Ring of Regen (4-1)
Second Chance (4-2 soul)
God’s Wrath (2-3 soul)
Curse Weapon (18 int, 1-3 soul)

Bump str to 19 to wield two Hands of God (2-2) for fun, and a negligible strength bonus for the clever.

Note that Level 22 is our low level build.
Level 38 gives us some of the Vitality (Health) and Endurance (Stamina) we are missing.
Level 68 takes Vitality and Endurance to their efficient gain maximums.
Level 83 is our prime stat point, improving clever strength and faith bonuses and enabling:
End: 20-21 (20 to 21 for 50 lb for PFS)
Str: 26 (to one-hand clever, wield DSS {5-3} or PFS{1-1} and Compound Long Bow{4-1})
Fai: 24 (large sword of moonlight{5-2}, third miracle slot)
Level 120 is the competitive SL120 Meat Build.

PvE Progression:
1-1; Thief's Ring, Cling Ring, Level Stats
4-1; Crescent Falchion, Adj Shield, Regen Ring, Club, Clever Soul, Compound Long Bow
4-2; Urbain, Kunai, Second Chance Soul, White Bow
2-2; Hands of God, Red Hot Soul (Ed)
2-3; God's Wrath Soul
2-2; Cracked ToB (PBWT)
3-1; Clever Rat's Ring, Black Leather Armor, Silver Coronet, Baby's Nail
