    Help with a new character

    Post by Bertinrow on Wed Sep 19, 2012 5:05 pm

    I started a new character, already made him a Sunbro, and decided to waste Solaire this time. Atm I'm wearing his outfit except still wearing the Hard Leather, his sword is pretty good, basically a Longsword with Darksword/Broadsword dmg. What I'm thinking about is weather to go Int or Faith. I'm not going to have magic be his primary damage, I'd just like some support spells. So my question is, which has the best support, Sorcery or Miracles? I like MW/GMW/Hush/Fall Control & such, but Faith has a few good ones too, Heal,Sunblade (which fits well with Sunbro concept) TWoP, etc. Which would be better, 15 Int gets me all my support except Crystal Weapon while I need 30 Faith to use Sunblade.

    if you're really into the roleplaying style faith would probably be the best, however, as for support it really is up to you and your gameplay, what fits you best is really the best kind of support for YOU. Honestly though, i myself find faith to be more fun as i like to have back up heals etc, while with int you could get a 15+ weapon and be able to buff it as well. i'd go with faith if i were you, not saying it's the best choice, just that i'd do it. I'd suggest you look through all spells in case you don't know of them all already and think about what fits your playstyle best, as you have the best answer to that question.

    Thanks for the info. I agree, RP wise, Faith is the obvious choice, and Faith has some really good options, but so does Int, to be honest, they have a lot more support. I'm really back and forth between it. I assume that Sunlight Blade is better in all ways compare to Crystal Weapon/GMW & Darkmoon Blade?

    I don't really keep track on which one is the best, so i can't really help you there, but like i said, my best advice is to follow the path that fits you best, be it int, faith or perhaps even both? If you're uncertain i'd suggest you try out both on a different character if you have the time, or simply experiment and see where it goes. If you happen to be into RP like me then i'd really suggest you go with faith, even if you'd be less good at it, because as you may know, it takes practice to earn skill.

    Yes, Sunlight Blade is best (except DMB), but only 1 use per slot plus the higher stat requirement is pretty steep. Is this PvP, PvE, or both?

    How many levels do you have available? Oh, and how many attune slots will you end up with? What's your favorite color?

    A sunbro with no faith? Crazy talk.

    PvE: int has less investment and has good utility.
    PvP: faith. TWoP, DMB, SLB, GMB... can't say how the PTD version alters this though.
