Thanks guys, I was hoping it would be much clearer and better organized, and it looks like it is!
Hey, this is just something I found out:
If you have your stats at a level of 1 health stat per 50 attack, that's pretty much the "sweet spot" where you can survive about one hit

Wow nice edit, the guide seems clearer and easier to follow to some extent now. Thanks SAB!
P.S. I think you mean Double XP potion under your Ryth section instead of health potion?
Need some advice. Since I have the Gem set, due to their immensely large XP bar I can pretty much afford not to spend any gold buying items from store for levelling. Instead I can simply rely on mastering drop items through fights and when I do run of unmastered drop items I can easily switch back to using the Gem items. Therefore my strategy for every rush and rest NG is to start out using only my Gem items and any drop items in fights, thus allowing me to save up gold until I can afford the "Key (literally 'key') weapons", i.e. IB, Nobel, Widow Shriek & Solar Trans-_X. Then I master the items I received from using those "key weapons" through fights, and finally spend gold buying and gold-mastering store items only near the very end of the NG.
Is this a wise strategy for levelling in NG? I guess one advantage of this strategy is that it saves your gold-earning time and thus help you speed through NG even faster.
I know your'e asking SAB but I thought I'd share my view anyway , yes what you described is basically what I do too in NG+ . I believe it works well as I'm levelling quite quickly. The only difference is on games where I have all SP in attack and health for dual weapons use, I don't master the light and heavy weapons i get given by fighting, I use gold instead. To increase levelling speed I also buy the Xp potion for boss fights like Ryth and the skycage titans, also for the vile shield Titan. Also I always try and have 2 Xp gems, but that's up to the fates as whether they appear.
In fact I also use my Gem items mastery extent to determine how long a rest NG I'm taking should be.
Btw Taml how fast are you levelling on average per, say, hour of gameplay?
It all depends on whether I've got the Xp gems. I had a good run of very profitable games recently with 2 large Xp gems plus large gold+ gems so I was able to buy the Xp potions often, during that time I'd say I was levelling about 40 levels a day, which is probably between 5 to 10 an hour. In my current NG I have no Xp gems so I've dropped from making over 200k a fight to about 80k a fight, so it's going much slower, only around a couple of levels an hour.
I was using only dual with stats in shield and health only but during this game, I got given a lot of light swords and some heavy so I ended up changing my stats and putting a fair bit in shield, so I can master them through fights for a change. It's given the game a bit more variety, and I can practice my perfect parries and perfect blocks, which adds another element to the game.
Also using dual only means you can only fight Ryth every few new games or you'll lose some of the Xp points on the dual solar trans as it doesn't have enough points to absorb all he gives you. That's why I made the change to shield stats, so I can use the light or heavy solar trans on him, which I have heaps left to master as I haven't used them for ages.
Xp potion on most bosses is a good way to go. I use it for all main bosses Thane, archivist, goliath and the god king, although not Thane version 2 of course . Also I don't think it's worth buying for the bog and moss golem or gargap as they don't give that much Xp.

Hey SAB I had that happen a couple of NG's ago (pressing Last rebirth in error) but I ended up liking that NG as i got 2 x 37% gold+ gems from a chest and a titan drop and made a ton of money. You never know what's going to happen...
okay guys, this is REALLY weird. I just got through NG96 again after my setback, and i had purchased a gelder and put some attack gems in it during my second NG96. When i entered NG97, the gems I had in my gelder in NG96 WERE STILL THERE IN NG97.
