|Gameplay tips and progression||
I think using a left hand crescent uchi while as main hand a blessed knight's sword is a pretty smooth set up. Along with the adjudi shield for added regen, or one like Knight's for parrying.
Crescent at 45 does a bit more physical damage and may be the overall better option in combining the physical with it's magic than moon. Maybe it's 50, but at 45, crescent nevetheless does damage especially against non-faith buiild. Very good actually against dex and crushing that aren't hybrids with faith.
Again play around, tweak the build to your desire. Like using Estoc, Kilijs instead of Uchi's> Use the Estoc as backup weapon to blessed knights in second Righ hand slot. You can then lower your strength hence either taking the extra stats and adding them to magic, blessed, or even vit. Other option, lower endurance as well a tiny bit and you can get down to the SL 130 arena. Not as strong of build but nevertheless just as fun!!
