    Can you be more specific? Reason I am asking is there are two ways to interpret your question, how should your "end stats" be setup, and the other way is "how you should incrementally level". Both would be really long reply's.

    okay, what kind of weapons are you looking to use? dex or str weapons?

    Faith for starters i'd say get it up to 40, you'll want to make use of weapon buffs as well as lightning spear miracles and WoG.

    just make sure at the end of it you have a minimum of 30 Vit and End, I'd personally say you need more unless you intend to wear ring of favour.

    My cleric tank focused on faith, strength, and endurance.. in that order. I did cap my str at a certain point however.

    Yea well sorry for my english i was thinking this way as a heavy armor cleric i know faith is relly importent for miracles but what other stats should i lvl up vit and endu..i was thinking 2 lvls faith then 1 vit and then 2 lvls faith and one endurance...would my faith get to high compared to my vit and endurance?

    I may be wrong, but if you're going for a faith build, you should get your str/dex up to minimum requirements of a faith scaling weapon and level up your faith. While you are leveling up your faith, work on your vit and end at the same time.

    oh, faith scaling weapons you want.. okay

    i say 50 Faith at the end, minimum dex/str for what weapon you want then some into attunement for your arsenal of long range attacks finished off with lots of points in Vit and End. Something like this would be okay:

    http://darksouls.itsthatguy.com/?c=Q2xlcmljLDEyMCw0MCwxOSw0MCwxNCwyMCwxMSw4LDUw

    this is obviously for using a divine/occult Iaito, but just have a fiddle till you find a setup you're happy to go with for weapon you wanna use.

    Pretty similar to my guy. He's using the Greatsword of Artorias, so my stats are a little unfocused. But then again, I'm playing for fun, not for the hard SL 120 PvP cap. The link is just where my guy is at SL 120, I intend on taking him as far as I can.

    http://darksouls.itsthatguy.com/?c=Q2xlcmljLDEyMCw0MCwxOSw0MCwxNCwyMCwxMSw4LDUw


    Again, my stats are a little off because of my choice of using the Greatsword of Artorias, which requires 24 Str, 18 dex, 20 INT, 20 faith. Aside from the standard weapons that you can upgrade to divine/occult, I would recommend the Straight Sword of Astora and the Crescent Axe. The sword is a great starting weapon and is easily found if you have the master key. The Crescent axe can be acquired in the Tomb of the Giants.

    You could also build a cleric around the Grant weapon. Your target would be 50 in strength, and 30 in Faith. The Grant scales on both strength and faith, so it suits the build well. You'd have enough faith for lightning spears and wrath of god, but could still knock enemies stupid with that club.
