This build will utilize magic to it's fullest extent. As you progress from a Novice to a Master, your damage output, and equipment will change. Your primary weapons will be mainly dex based weapons. I recommend Rapiers. Armor can include any Light armor to medium armor.
Espada Ropera +10/any rapier +10, and Staff of Wisdom
Llewellyn Armor +5, Black boots +5, Black Hood+5 ( Hood is optional ), and Black Gloves.
Souls Spear, Crystal Soul Spear, Unleash Magic, Repair ( For weapon, since it has low Durability ), Homing crystal soul mass, and Soul Geyser.
This is a loose mage. You don't have to use the exact equipment, it's just suggested since it worked well for me. You can use ANY light, or Medium armor. The armor suggested just worked well for me as well.
