Okay, so the basic idea behind this build is pretty simple. You start by casting all your buffs (Power Within, Crystal Magic Weapon, and Pursuers). Ideally, you want to get all 3 buffs set up BEFORE the fight starts, so I like to bow first and then apply them while my opponent is busy reciprocating my bow. Alternatively, you can start powering up immediately by just not bowing, but then your opponent is free to attack you while you are doing so because he (or the rare she, I suppose) is not busy bowing. Personally, I prefer the first method, but either way, APPLY THOSE BUFFS!!!

Once you have the buffs applied, we come to the actual fighting part of the fight (you know, with stuff like fighting?). With Power Within, the Crown of Dusk, and the Bellowing Dragoncrest Ring on, your spell damage will be tremendous, so use spells first to weaken (if not outright kill) your opponent. Run up to them and once Pursuers is triggered, use Dark Bead to hit them while they are dodging/avoiding it and possibly knock them into getting hit by Pursuers as well. I've gotten roughly 1300 damage with one casting of Dark Bead (not counting damage from Pursuers), and not all of the orbs hit. A good portion of the time that's the entire fight, but if it comes down to it, you also have Crystal Magic Weapon on the Barbed Straight Sword, which swings fast and deals some 545 damage with each hit (and inflicts bleed in case they turtle or use Great Magic Barrier or some such nonsense).

Also, if you chose to equip the Red Tearstone Ring instead of the Bellowing Dragoncrest Ring, you may want to save some of your spells until later in the fight (once you inevitably lose enough health for the ring to trigger) so you can take advantage of the extra 50% damage.
