    Magic users using melee attacks

    Post by amill68 on Fri Feb 10, 2012 2:45 pm

    So I am a new player to this game, and I am currently looking at a caster class (pyro, sorcerer) I guess my main question is regarding the interplay of the melee attacks and the use of magic. Since the magic attacks only have a limited number of uses, and they can only be recharged at a bonfire, I'm assuming that they will not be available for each enemy as you progress throughout the game. Therefore, I would think that you would have to fall back on the good ol' melee weapons (It seems as if sorcerers are better for this, given their spells which are able to enhance the weapon and shield). If this is the case, would it be better to pick a melee class, and then just learn the spells that you want to as the game progresses?
    Also, I likely have a fundamental misunderstanding of the game, as I am attempting to understand the class that I will be creating before I set out on the journey. If someone could help me out here, I would greatly appreciate it.
    Thank you, and good luck.

    Yea I don't think you starting class matters much it really only effects the very start of the game as it mainly determines what starting Weapon/armor you'll get.

    Far as Spell, Pyros and Miracles go you can pick them all up with out being able to use them, you'll just have to level certain stats to be able to use them later.

    SO would it be useful to level a class (for example, a warrior) and level certain stats so that you can have a decent melee attack combined with certain spells which may augment that melee attack? Or would it be better to go with a pure caster or melee class?

    Pure caster isn't that effective, and pure melee can be boring. If I were you, I would start with a pyromancer and then try out both pyromancy and sorcery (the pyromancer has high enough int to use sorcery early in the game). The pyromancer can also be an effective melee warrior, and the fact that it starts at SL1 means that you have a lot of flexiblity. See what you like, and level the appropriate stats accordingly.
