    Dark magic & Manus catalyst STR/INT PvP PTDE

    Post by Katakato on Wed Sep 12, 2012 3:18 am

    I was thinking with the new Dark magic & Manus catalyst that scales
    from STR (B) to make a STR build using a small amount of INT.

    The build > http://tinyurl.com/8gtqxuc

    I
    know the calculator is not properly finished for PTDE but it looks like
    that Manus catalyst does not scale in Mag adj just from STR alone, only
    INT would increase it's Mag adj.

    Do Dark spells work like regular spells, scaling from the Magic adj. of the Catalyst in hand ?

    Don't
    know if this would be a good build, it will focus only on Dark magic
    which scales from STR (Manus) since they deal Physical dmg & perhaps
    a GMW enchant (Olacile catalyst).

    I saw the YouTube videos where
    a Japanese player made some great testings with the new Dark spells but he
    didn't made any High STR low INT tests & that's what I'm interested
    in.

    Has anyone tried to make something like this ?

    Cheers !

    I think it's all a confusion, Manus Catalyst scales with Str but it's for its physical AR. Similar to the Demon's Catalyst, it could be an useful backup weapon for finishing off. With the low Int you're better off with the Oolacile Catalyst.

    "This Catalyst has an extra feature whereby it will boost the power of Dark Sorceries (Dark Orb, Dark Bead, Pursuers)
    based on the user's Strength stat
    with a higher multiplier compared to
    the TCC. This is apparent due to it being generally weaker than the Tin
    Crystallization Catalyst at higher INT levels due to it's lower magic
    adjust yet able to surpass its power when the dark spells mentioned
    above are used provided the user has a high strength stat."

    I was also surprised to read this but no one made any high STR low INT tests to compare.

    You tube clips of Dark magic DMg comparisons if anyone is interested

    One of my builds is a Dark Mage, basically made to try out the new spells. I'll switch wolf for bellowing dragoncrest depending on the situation.
