For PVE-Thiefs ring, Cling in soul.
Body: Eternal, Thiefs ring

PVP invader, or drop red stone;
Have Pure Black CT to be in strongest form; Cling, Foes Rings
As Blue Phantom for co-op or duels against black or red phantoms: Friends, Cling Rings

Recommended Weapons; Due to high Magic stat at 55, this is around where crescent outdamages moon upgraded ones.
Crescent Uchi's(Duel, or two handing one!, Estoc, and as a backup crescent Secret Dag.

Catalyst: Since TOB meets both faith and magic req's, Recommend using at all times for both casting SC, warding and offensive spells(FSpray, Fireball, Ignite and Soul ray.
Due to such low INtelligeince, Insanity Catalyst is not really realistic as it will cut your MP in half!
With high Mag, and 18 in faith, your spell power will be limited in quantity, but strong quality/damage wise;)

Shields:Knights, DSS+5, Buckleys(for parrying)
All these shields serve it's purpose. Buckley if you like parrying while one handing weapon, DSS for extra magic defense.(Just make sure if casting spell, that it is not out during the cast. To avoid this, highly recommend equipping TOB on same side as Shield.)
Knights has good blocking resistance defense. All three you can parry with.
Due to not meeting the parry daggar's dex req, will not be able to use with this build.

Other option if in body and using Regen Ring, is throwing adjudicator's on back, while two handing weapon

Recommended spells/miracles

Defensive Spell-Warding(takes up both slots)
If you decide to use offensive spells instead, can either equip Fireball(2 slots) Firespray(one slot), Soul Ray(one slot),
Although this would defeat the purpose of why I created this build, if you prefer using same stats and dipping +10 weapon in light spell, it would be a viable PVP option.
However, crescent uchis with 55 magic can be used very effectively even against high faith builds.
That is where the difference between moon vs. crescent is; While moon may have more magic damage, crescent deals both high magic and phsyical damage. Slices right through warding.
