Recommended equipment

Female armor:
Binded Set is probably the best but I use Rogue's just because it looks cool. Armor for me is mostly cosmetic.

Male armor:
OKD or whatever you think looks best. Gloom Armor looks badass but it incurs a stamina regen penalty and OKD doesn't (poopy!)

Crushing (something) +5 … I'm going to use a short sword just because it's ridiculous but the more serious choices are definitely Great Axe, Mirdan Hammer, Great Sword, Guillotine Axe, etc.
Sharp (something) +5 … I'm probably going to go with a war scythe but I might switch it up with a kilij or uchi, don't know yet.
Talisman of Beasts
Dark Silver Shield +5 or Morion Blade, your pick
Might be worth investing in a Sticky Bow +5 for pve.

In body form I've been using a random combo: Clever Rat's + Flame resistance. I find the Ring of Flame Resistance is a nice surprise against people who use Firestorm. It really comes in handy.
In soul form I use Clever Rat's + Cling. You can mix it and swap Clever Rat's for Foe's Ring or whatever suits you fancy.

Recommended spells/miracles

Cursed Weapon
Second Chance
Firestorm (I hate the Maneaters and I let them know it)

Gameplay tips and progression

Just rush through the first game and consume every soul except the ones for spells and the Red Hot one of course. I usually rush to NG+ and hit up ( I think this is the right order): 1-1, 1-2, entire 2nd world, 1-3, entire 3rd world, entire 4th world. Again I do this while consuming most of the demon souls. After I complete world 4 I just farm the mantas. I make my characters female so that I can use Silver Bracelet + Ring of Avarice.

For gameplay, because this build is pretty diverse in terms of weapons usage you can go with a lot of different combos (you dual wield sharp + tearing uchis and then switch to crushing great axe or mirdan hammer or whatever) The only demanding thing about this build is making the items. I'm probably going to farm the stones with my bbs build + large sword of searching. You can dupe them too if you're tired of grinding.
