I have seen similar spellsword builds, but this one is a little unique.

L1 Kite Shield/Dark Kite Shield
L2 Kris Blade
R1 Crescent Kilij/Estoc; Moon Mace/Mirdan Hammer; Dragon Knight Sword (for Faith builds)
R2 Insanity Catalyist/Talisman

Rings are your choice, but I prefer not to use ring of magical sharpness because spells are not your bread and butter for this build. I usually stick to warrior ring and a stealth type ring.

Silver Coronet and any armor is good as long as you can still roll. Armor with the least stamina penalty is prefered.

Vit: Max HP without diminishing returns
Will: 3 spell slots, 119mp, 142mp with Silver Coronet, 71mp with ICAT
End: Max stamina, 69 equipment weight (34.4 free roll)
Str: Kilij
Dex: Estoc
Mag: More AP
Faith: 2 miracle slots

Recommended spells/miracles

Fireball, Firespray, Second Chance

Gameplay tips and progression

Cast Second Chance with your Talisman. Then switch over to your ICAT. Keep your distance. Open up with Firespray and try to sneak in a Fireball if you get a chance. This will trick your opponent into thinking you are a pure mage. With 71mp, you can only cast 15 Firesprays and 2 Fireballs. When your mp is used up, go for the close combat with your favorite Moon/Crescent weapon.. 9 out of 10 times, this will suprise them. I usually try for a backstab on my initial charge. ALWAYS KEEP ON THE MOVE and roll away from attacks when possible, then counter attack. The 2H Kilij is my prefered weapon for PVP. Feel free to add more to STR and DEX to fit your favorite weapon stats, but I like to keep my weapon choice to faster swinging weapons. I don't usually use Uchis just because everyone else has one, I don't prefer the moveset, and I don't want to up my strength to wield it.
