|Build summary||A new ,sexy version of the pushed TOB build that uses blessed weapons and casting deadly spells.|
|Recommended starting class(es)||Royal|
|Recommended Soul Level||126|
Recommended stats (Leave at default (**) if not raised)
Armor: Males: Old Doran's, Black Leather, Sage Freke's
Rings: Body Form(only recommend for PVE or co-op play as host beating level)
Shields: Adjudicators when two handing blessed weapon. DSS+5 is great to use with straight swords. Highly recommended using with Knight's sword. Great combo that can lead into a nice ignite or up close fireball. From distance has a good running thrust move, which can lead to instant cast.
While 40 faith is not the same as having 50, blessed weapons still deal good enough damage, have great stunlocks and increases magic defense, which is a huge advantage this build has over other magic oriented ones.
Spells: Four Slots:
Miracles: Second Chance, God's Wrath(Can use TOB for offensive miracles. While I do not believe you deal as much damage as you would using TOG, having pushed TOB allows you to effectively cast both miracle and spells!
|Gameplay tips and progression||
Wanted to add some sexiness to a cookie cutter pushed TOB build. While I am not the one to come up with the original and credit whoever did, the great thing about creating builds, is taking some of the basics from others that have been used in the past, and tweak them towards your liking. If 30 endurance is plenty for someone, take advantage of using those five other points and putting it towards other stats.
Some advantages of this build versus a pure magic that use high intelligence with IKAT
-Provides much more physical and magic defense. Unlike pure mags, who sacrific a great deal of magic defense, do to having good faith, which cancels out poor mag def, this gives you much more flexibility to be evasive, block a blessed weapons hit, and have blessed weapons to deliver damage. Not to mention, with high endurance, allows you to wear good armor such as Old Doran's with ability to roll quickly. Ability to use instant run, charges, pivot casting, lock and lock off backstabs, rolling backstabs into a spell, are all advantages of having endurance at 35.
Finally, I strongly recommend using this build in phantom form, as blue, black, or red in PVP. PVE not a big deal. Body have more Vit, while in Soul form, stronger spells.
