Equip AFemales: Full Binding(silver coronet to caste Second chance, god's wrath)
Males; Old King Doran's(using silver coronet instead of helmet, burger king mask, whatever you want to call it.

Why using silver coronet is important-If planning to only have 14 intelligence, you must always use silver coronet to caste god's wrath and Second Chance. If you feel you can deduct point from endurance, add that extra one towards intelligence, you do not need silver coronet in casting either of these.

As mentioned under summary of build, the purpose of this build is best used in PVP when in soul form/ phantom form. You could use this as host, but the reasoning behind why faith is past 50 is due to the awesomeness of friends/foes stacking with weapons, spells, etc.. This I would say is a pretty difficult build to use, but as with all builds, if used in the right hands of an experienced player, could be deadly. In terms of taking faith to 65, if you want to shed points off endurance towards faith, while you most likely better be damn good at spacing, timing, and understanding endurance, it will make a slight difference in damage output along with added magic defense.

Phantom form;
Blue-Friends, Cling. Always have pure white character tendency.
Black(invaders)-Foe's, Cling. Always have Pure black Character Tendency

While this goes for both blue and black phantoms, realisitcally a blue within a hosts PWWT alogn with the fact that unless there is conclusive evidence to the contrary, hosts who has PWCT gives a blue a slight advantage damage wise against an invader or versus a red stone opponent. That is why it is more risky but sexier if you pull a win off, especially against a decent player. High risk, high reward.

Many many options. Each player has their own personal preference of setups they prefer. Hence, not going to say which is best, but rather give a couple of fine setups I personally use, which maybe you might, or may want to try.

What to use to cast Miracles:
Offensive Miracle-TOG(talisman of God) This is the only thing you should use when planning to cast God's wrath.

Second chance-Defensive Miracle-TOG or TOB.
Difference between TOB and TOG-Both can caste Second Chance. However difference is huge here. the TOB-(Talsiman of beast) should never ever ever be used to caste God's wrath. Puny damage and no reason why should be done. TOB comes in handy over TOG if you plan on using warding. When to use warding? I can't answer that, as it is up to you. Personally, even if you are getting jumped, I wouldn't give these trollocs the benefit of getting to you. Trolls will always be trolls. If you are one of them, well have to be fair and balanced since this build is for everyone, than warding post second chance can realistically(say loosely) be used. Ofcourse, there are times where non-trolls such as myself will continue to use warding if I know a certain troll PSN who also knows my PSN(confusing, apologies) which I am in the mood to troll him back. Will I succeed. May, may not. Doesn't really matter. Point is this; If you are the age of 18 and older, I have pity on your royal trollness.

Weaponry and Shields:
Left Hand Slots;
DSS+5, TOB,
Right hand slots:
blessed knight's, Blessed Claymore(two handed only)

Left Hand slots-
Adjudicators shield+5, TOG, Blessed Guillotine Axe, LSOM(Large Sword of Moonlight)

One final example:
Knight's Shiled+10, TOG, or TOB(if using warding, need TOB)
Right hand slots:
Blessed Great Axe, dragon weapon(knight's, mace, heck live dangerously using morning star.

Large Sword of Moonlight-For you juniors out there, who may just be getting familiar with how PVP works. While this "magical sword" does exactly that-dish out pure magic damage, while not the best damage output, it can be very useful in certain situations;versus turtles since it ignore shields, bypassing them completely. Has more attack damage with 60-65 faith over 50 and stacks with the foe's ring for even more pure magical sexiness. While history, or folklore says the LSOM can be blind parried, I wouldn't worry too much. Does it happen. Very rarely, but never say never. The advantages using this sword outwieight the chance you get blind parried.

Use of 2 handing large weapons such as Claymore and Great Axe. With 18 strength, not enough to one hand these babies. Good part-Garbage when using one handed anyways. Claymore two handed has a great range, has great horizontal swings, and even better when not locked on to opponent. Aside from the mighty claymore, comes another large piece of handy blessed weaponry-The Great Axe. Pound and ground, hitting harder than Tito Ortiz(well, at least back in the day, when Ortiz actually was a great fighter). Both these weapons using adudicators shield thrown on back can be deadly. A shorter, stumpier, less attractive(physically cousin of the Great Axe is the Guillotine axe. Under certain circumstances, this baby will deal out increadible damage. For example, as tough as some say it is to pull of, if you get someone stuneed by this axe into a full blow stunlock combination, you will dish out enough damage to kill against phantoms, and even on some hosts. It's why having decent endurance for this build is important. Not necessarily because of equipment burden, but because many of the smaller blessed weapons such as the incredible knight's sword needs enough endurance to truly do devastating damage. combinations work best using board sword style with a faith build.

Recommended spells/miracles

Miracles:
Offensive Miracle-TOG(talisman of God) This is the only thing you should use when planning to cast God's wrath.
Defensive Miracle- Second Chance. Never leave the Nexus without it.
Can be casted using either the TOG or TOB.

Difference between TOG, TOB;
Both can caste defensive miracle(SC) TOB-(Talsiman of beast) should never really be used in fact, at all to cast God's wrath due to it well..being useless. Puny damage. The one time TOB comes to play over TOG is the ability to use warding(to use warding with this build, must delevel magic once you learn Sage Freke's spells. To learn Sage Freke's spells and how to delevel, you can see many forum pages that will discuss this. I don't want to bore you with a drawn out breakdown of how to use this since it's easy to access on the internet.

Gameplay tips and progression

First off, if those who want or still can actually rate builds, and find my humor(which is exactly what it is) offensive, give me a negative rating. If you are looking at what the build actually is, and understand PVP, and even if you have to truly think about why this build could be effective(taking faith past 50), by all means do so. Positive, negative, smegative, who cares. I am hear to help thee, you my fellow, uhh…players..
I always believe in all seriousness, that a game like Demon's Souls, is for all ages, irregardless of one's maturity level, since there are 16 yr. olds(no offense to those 16 I mean this in the most postivie of ways) who have a higher intelligence in gaming, and well..in life, a much better non-verbal level of communicating through how they express themselves in PVP duels, than some 30 year olds I know. Have fun, enjoy the hopefully ever lasting DS PVP. I know as I get older, and as I realize that DS is the one game I thoroughly enjoy, not being able to access PVP will hurt..badly…Let's keep it afloat. It's not about being the best PVPer, but challenging yourself. Win, lose Daniel Son, doesn't matter. As a very wise person named Willy Wonka once said, "we are the dreamers, we are the dreamers of….our dreams"
