Gameplay tips and progression

I like this build because it's proven very versatile to me in many situations. It is build around mainly around the Moon Great Sword +5 and Firestorm. This is a very powerful combo and if done correctly can end the match very quickly (though Firestorm is rather treacherous). Just keep your distance and use the GS's lenght to your advantage, when you connect, your enemy will fly to the floor and you just run to him and cast Firestorm.

I try not to use a second weapon/shield in my left hand slot, because when you connect with the GS you don't have much time before your enemy gets up. I really like the spike in damage that the RoMS/FR combo gives you, and the MHW is really awesome (except for some visibility issues).

If you want a faster character, you can also use the katana or "doble katana" stance, both being very powerful with your magic stat so high.

Use second chance as soon as you invade (if you can obviously), Soul Ray is for Poison/Plague casters and I like Ignite because of it's damage, quickness and the surprise effect for your opponent.

The biggest strategy here is to use your length's advantage and try to keep you enemy at distance. Just wait for that chance to connect with your sword and cast a very powerful Firestorm. I know the intelligence stat is a bit high but with Second Chance and Firestorm you really run out of magic fast, and if you miss one or Firestorm, you'll need the extra 100 MP. Also there is a bit left for some Soul Ray.

So what do you think of my build. Good, bad, interesting, makes you vomit, what would you equipment would you use, what technique would you change? I'm really open for suggestions/critics.
