Gameplay tips and progression

This build was created because someone challenged me to come up with a faith hybrid that effectively uses the Meat Cleaver with CW and Blessed weapons. The setup presented provides a fair balance between magical and physical damage. My preferred setup would have been a faith-strength build because the damage output would be higher with physical weapons, but that's not what was requested. The AR for the Blessed GrAxe will be about 540, so you don't lose much compared to a normal faith build with 50 in that stat. The MC will have roughly 460-470 AR with min stats, but benefits quite nicely from CW. You could very well use SWS if you want to add to the magical damage, but if that's the case, you might as well just pull that great axe out. The claymore is the most reliable of the blessed weapons because of the broad sweep of your attacks and the speed of your swings. For combos, the guillotine axe is your go-to because it will hit the hardest, although the knight's sword loses little AR in comparison with similar combo-ability and weighs a lot less, so that is definitely a viable option that i highly recommend. Your magdef is insane with magical dullness and the DSS.

Now, if I were to adjust the stats for this build to deal even more damage with CW, I would use the following setup for a FTH-STR hybrid:

Starting class: Priest
SL 123-138

45-50 VIT
18 INT
35-40 END
34 STR
45-50 FTH

Same exact lineup, but you change out the MC for Crushing weapons.
