    You need to be more specific. Do you want large or small weapons? The small hammers are terrible for PvP in my opinion, but work well for PvE. Cloth armor you'll want the Holy Robe, it looks amazing.

    Morningstar seems pretty blunt to me, but if you know what you want why not make the build yourself? Lol what SL are you gonna cap at? I can come up with something better.

    Play with the armor combo, and switch the Pickaxe for a Mace. You got 2 healing miracles from Gwynevere for jolly coop.

    Well an issue is that you can only co-op with people in your level range, so depending on the boss and area you'll want to be a certain SL. Though there is higher level co-op to be had, it's usually a bit harder to find, and not as consistent. I find the mace is a pretty good weapon, nice stun ability as well it is a striking weapon which some foes are a bit more weak to. It does a bit more damage than the morning star I believe, though at the cost of the bleed effect. How exactly do you plan to build this character, majorly faith I assume?

    Yes, but group heal spells are very hard to use as people might not stand in them, as well they take up a lot of atunement and have few casts.

    Okay. Well then here is my idea. In order to get the miracles you want you have to clear Duke's so I made the build an 80 since that's a perfectly reasonable SL to do Duke's at. You're a robe wearing, med rolling, heal machine with a little poise, extremely powerful miracles and a WoG added in to punish BS fishers. The Ring of the Sun Princess really buffs your miracles and goes along with the theme, though it can be swapped with a wolf ring for 68 poise. I tried to pick equipment that can all be easily gotten on the way to Duke's and I'm pretty sure I didn't mess that up.

    Now if I was gonna take this up to 120 I would mostly be adding Vit and End.

    Also there is plenty of high level coop, its just mostly in NG+

    I might suggest getting a bit more acquainted with the game then, because a low poise healing based toon is going to be very hard to play, especially if you guys are invaded at any point.

    Well, generally faith/dex or faith/str builds are very common. Usually people tend to use elemental weapons, if not doing this, and since you don't wish to be a high level and you are doing co-op you'd do a lot more. You'd want to get whatever str or dex is required for a weapon, then make it lightning or chaos. Then you'd mostly go vit or end until you reach 40/40. 30/30 is also pretty good. But that's a simple common way to make builds. I'd say something exotic is more fun, but if you're learning the game it's very hard to use one. As well with the end and certain items, you can then use some decent armor and have poise and good survivability.

    They're in the Duke's Archives. Climb up the ladder leading out of the cages area, but don't leave. Walk to the left on a shelf, then drop onto a ledge. You'll find the maiden set there.

    I made a cleric build wearing the cleric armour, I had a +5 crescent axe 50 faith a lot of end and the rest in vit. It's a slow moving weapon, attacks like the mace pretty much but boy I never expected that thing to dead angle like a boss and wreck poise that easily.

    Alright, I've made a couple of takes on this idea, so I'm just gonna throw them all at you and let you see what's what. Basically I went with two different ideas. First is that I wasn't sure if the miracle-boosting effects like Ring of the Sun's Firstborn affect heals, so if it does I've made two builds that use those effects, and if they don't then I've made two builds that don't use those. Second, since you said you were kind of unfamiliar with the game, I went ahead and made two builds which ignore your "light armor" idea, since while I can appreciate the caster-like look of the robes coinciding with the role-play of being a heal caster, having poise and tankiness makes every strategy more effective and can easily save your life if you make a mistake in positioning. So without further explanation, my various takes on the support healer:

    With miracle boosting effects:
    http://tinyurl.com/7qdmsan (light armor)
    http://tinyurl.com/7egm59o (tanky)

    Without miracle boosting:
    http://tinyurl.com/7qajo83 (light armor)
    http://tinyurl.com/85x3dqa (tanky)

    And if you're worried about the Cleric Armor, don't be. It actually looks really, really cool on a slim or very slim bodied female character without making them look fat winking
