Note: I do realize that the stat spread is nearly identical to any other Blueblood Sword Build. The main difference is the intention and use of it. Here we go.

Equipment

Right Hand Primary

Blueblood Sword - I know what you're thinking. No sh*t, Sherlock. >_> Well, I've learned that this is a great weapon for a Stealth build, mainly because it does not rely on Curse Weapon as the main buff (it would give away your position.) Light Weapon is completely invisible once the casting animation occurs. This is a better choice to me IMO over a non-buff-able weapon because the damage is higher and there is no penalty (you'll have plenty of time to recast while your adversary tries to find you.)

Right Hand Secondary

Northern Regalia - Backstab! RIPOSTE! KILLL!!!! >:D
Trollruler - AKA Stormruler. Excellent choice to complement BBS, as it gives you time to rebuff in the heat of combat. Works great to regain your advantage of stealth when Stealth vading.
Moon Great Sword+5 - Kind of the same purpose as the former, but its legit since it is quite a bit harder to hit people with. It also deals quite a bit more damage (still mediocre compared with your lit BBS).

Left Hand Primary

Insanity Catalyst - Use this for casting Light Weapon (use it for Cloak as well if you decide to go with 19 Intelligence instead of 18. This will free up your Left Hand Secondary slot because you won't have to use ToB to cast Cloak with.)

Left Hand Secondary

Talisman of Beasts - You'll use this for casting Second Chance when dueling. You'll also need it to recast cloak when Stealth Vading if you go with 18 Intelligence (The other option would be to consume twice as much Old Spice, see "Casting")
Moon Uchigatana+5 - If you go with 19 Intelligence, you will have enough MP to cast both Light Weapon and Cloak with half of your total MP. If you chose 18 Intelligence, you will either have to consume an extra Old Spice after casting Cloak before casting Light Weapon or you will have to substitute the Moon Uchigatana+5 for the ToB (this will free up your full MP bar to cast Cloak with ToB then Light Weapon with iCat.)

— I will be adding *several* more sections, so please no rating yet. Thank you.
