Beware, I already noticed that the start is very hard, due to to the lack of damage.
I will update it by myself or with any of your experiences if you send me a message in the wiki here. (Dark Wood Grain Ring is a waste at 1.06 since the ring has been patched, your 30.4 equipment load is over the 80.0 that you get at 40 endurance. You can invest in more endurance but is it a gamble on your vitality and faith scaling, since you need 122.0 equip load and that is a whopping 83 points of endurance folks.)
This build focuses on miracles, good defense and still being able to swing your sword to do some damage. It's very fun to play and I consider it fairly easy to play in PVE and PVP.
Someone might ask themselves why a Holy Dragon Knightess? Well since I experienced a wonderful time in Dark Souls with the "Dragon Knight" Build from kARM0 I thought about to do some sister-like character for his build which depends on Faith and Miracles, so I thought on doing that, especially since in Dark Souls are no really Female Knights, lol.
Of course you still can create a male char, it was just an idea of my own to make a female.
Starting class: Cleric (you won't have really the "money" for any miracle at start, but that comes later, for now you have to depend on your gameplay)
Gift: Which ever you fancy, though before 1.04 you can find all gifts from Lordran but not Master Key.
Update1: I just have slain Capra Demon and noticed that Reah will pretty late sell Miracles. So this build is even harder than expected, so I will try in near future if its better to go full faith at start to get the Lightning Spear from the Sunlight Warrior Covenant.
Update2: The table is now changed for a WAYS BETTER start. Focus on Faith from level 2 to 13 (so it reaches 25)!
Update3: I just finished NG++ This Build works pretty good out if you got the skill to aim properly with the Lightning Spear and if you are kamikaze-willed enough for the Wrath of the Gods later.
The Sunlight Spear may be strong, but only 5 Charges make it hard to play with it properly while also having the Wrath of the Gods.
So I prefer the Greater Lightning Spear which is the medium solution.
For PvP this Build pretty good too because people don't expect to be killed so fast with Wrath of the Gods (around 700 damage per shot when unshielded, around 200-300 when they hold shield upat faith~60-80) usually if you launch 2 Wrath of the Gods the shield guard is broken, and then the final blow kills them.
in NG+no problem since you can have 6 Wrath of the Gods along you and because you can go for Reah pretty much already at the start since you got a Divine Weapon.
Only problems I had with Four Kings, perhaps because of my lack in Melee skill, anyways the other Bosses were pretty easy, inclusive Gwyn since Karmic Justice and Wrath of the Gods are a nice help against him (you will be almost dead when Karmic Justice launches and your guard is broken and such, so you still need luck, but since lightnig spears are useless there is nothing else you really could take along except the manual aim of emit force)
Update4: After NG++ I have a gametime of 26 hours 52 minutes and 45 seconds with a Soul Level of 132
My Advice which Miracles to equip
Update 5 Dark Wood Grain Ring is a waste of time and souls, 1.06 and 30.4 weight kill the purpose of it. [8th June 2015]
