CIP: SpEn of Kiku

Back again with another char I really want to do well with. Should be trying to swap to a cutlass ASAP? I can still EH/confuse everything I meet, so I've been having fun with the dagger. I actually am not sure why I took Kiku, was it a bad choice? How do I proceed? I've only learnt pain so far, but I wanna get Twisted Resurrection up and running so that I can create some meatshields. Found a decent longblade, but.... longblade...
And how am I supposed to deal with spellhunger? Get spellcasting up till it hits 0 and only then cast spells? I'm sure I'll eventually run out of food, so I want to know how to deal with that.
Thanks in advance!
Update1: Found haste and invis, dumped my +2 evasion ring for my ring of wizardry which got haste to 6%, along with training. I don't know whether I should train Ice for summon Icebeast and Simulcarum, it seems like a good idea, but what are your thoughts? Confuse and especially EH fail on most everything I fight, so I just equip my long sword and go ham on them atm, don't know how to disable them so I can stab them anymore. Training spellcasting so I can memorize Invis. Where should I be dumping EXP into right now?
Update2: I literally can't kill anything anymore, since they shrug all my hexes off without even blinking, I've retired this character till I figure out how to proceed, also, where do I need to get my shields to so that I can have it not interfere with my stabbing? (Shields don't affect stealth do they?)

Re: CIP: SpEn of Kiku

Should be trying to swap to a cutlass ASAP?

No, pain dagger is hella strong with Kiku.

I actually am not sure why I took Kiku, was it a bad choice?

Kiku is probably the best choice for a SpEn.

How do I proceed?

Learn corpse rot, drop corpses when enemies are approaching cast rot when they're above the corpses.
Learn regeneration, use it when not on full hp.
Learn sublimation, use it when in need of mp (though only with much hp, preferably cast regen soon after).

Found a decent longblade, but.... longblade...

Ignore long blades.

And how am I supposed to deal with spellhunger?

Eat food. There's plenty. And your spells aren't even highlevel, you'll be fine.

Re: CIP: SpEn of Kiku

Kiku will allow you to brand a weapon with pain on full piety- a cutlass is preferable to a dagger, but a quickblade is even better. If you use your first acquirement for a weapon it gives you a decent chance to get one, which you then can brand. Otherwise play until its starts getting tough, (maybe lair-7/8, maybe dungeon after lair, really depends on your char) then brand you favourite weapon to get over that bump. You will want to get min-delay on the weapon you use most often- 10 for dagger, 14 for cutlass.

Animate dead and Kikus "gifts corpses" are really strong- but you have to use them before you are low on HP. Animate especially strong monsters (like hydra) and fast monsters (snakes) to keep up with you. As for food, it is highly unlikely you will run out, i played a LOT of Spriggans and the only time I starved was when I drew the "famine" card from a deck on D:2 or something silly like that.
