Gameplay tips and progression
  • Keeping a silver catalyst in the opposite hand of your insanity catalyst will help reduce the mana loss, and if you choose to use it the silver coronet will also help.
  • The Crescent Weapon will allow you to regenerate magic in your down time, which along with the Fragrant ring will help, plus it will conserve Fresh Spice.
  • You will want to choose your armor so you have a higher magic resistance so I would use The Venerable Sage's, or the Saints for a light Male armor, The Ragged set for the Female light armor. Then use Dark Silver or Dull Gold when you have a higher endurance.
  • You do not have a shield so remember to roll roll roll, but if you use a Crescent Curved Blade, you can parry.
  • Try to see if someone will give you an Insanity Catalyst, just so you can get Homing Soul Arrow sooner.

Flame toss will likely be your bread and butter for awhile, and it will be pretty useful on Phalanx.

Once you kill Phalanx go put all of your souls into leveling, 1 in Vitality and 1 in Endurance then the rest into Magic. Then go to 3-1 Tower of Latria and rescue Sage Freke, but also to collect a Silver Coronet, Silver Catalyst, Ring of Magical Sharpness and some Fresh spice. The Mind Flayers drop it rather often and this is a useful item since you're using magic. Return to the nexus and put some levels into Vitality and Endurance and then go add the second spell Soul Ray to your arsenal. You next stop is 3-2 or 4-1 Depending on if you'd rather pick the Fragrant Ring up or to trade with Sparkly the Crow for a Brass Telescope. If you choose 3-2 you will need to progress to the cage elevators and go down in the swamp place and pick it up, you can try to fight the Maneater but I would suggest heading to 4-1 now and getting yourself a crescent falchion. Once you have those items you are ready to Go fight the Armor Spider(2-1), and once he is dead make sure to get his spell, which should replace Flame Toss, and grab the Kris Blade while you're there. From here just make sure you level up Vitality and Endurance every 3 Magic levels or so, and around level 30 you may want to level up Intelligence so you can have a third spell, such as Warding so you'll also have to go fight the Tower Knight. Once you feel ready go fight the Old Monk and make Homing Soul Arrow(if you already have an Insanity Catalyst), then you'll be set to grind levels.
