Best starting class for main character and first play.

12 resitance, other stats around 10 and soul level 1 is great starting setup for all-arounder build and actually any build that is not purely physical.

Fireball is better than fire bombs. Tattered cloth set offers decent protection and resistances in all situations. Handaxe is actually very effective against early enemies. Shield is crap but you can pick up better moment after you leave asylum.
