Gameplay tips and progression

By now there is enough info on the site for you to figure out where to go and get everything I mentioned above.

You have a choice of armor type. I'm still trying this build out, so far the gloom armor is working fine, and I don't know if the extra damage resistance is worth giving points into endurance. Use the ring of great strength instead one of the Rings and save points that you have to put into endurance to wear the heavy brushwood armor for example. You can always go the gloom path, and if you want to try the brushwood armor out just use the great strength ring.
I just like the look of Gloom with the monk's head collar.
