Equip AFemales: Full Binding(silver coronet to caste Second chance, god's wrath)
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.
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:
Second chance-Defensive Miracle-TOG or TOB.
Weaponry and Shields:
Left Hand slots-
One final example:
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.
Difference between TOG, TOB;

|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..
