    Ahem, Pursuers Question : D

    Post by lordgodofhell on Sat Sep 22, 2012 4:21 pm

    Hey Forums, once again I am on who wants to be a soulionaire and I need to burn a lifeline and ask ya a question!

    So I read the magic section of Pursuers and for the first time intend on making a pure mage who uses buckler/enchanted dagger with 40 poise.

    From my understanding, Dark magic does higher damage when using the Manus catalyst. However, my str will not be 14, only base sorc 9, so I cannot use the catalyst.

    It says for Dark magic don't go beyond 30 Int or the Int your spell requires. So I will stick to 32 INT here.

    Now my question is, would it be worth it, to raise str to 40 for the SOLE reason of boosted dark magic OR, would it behoove me to boost Dex to 45 as I originally intended.

    So my choices,
    A. http://tinyurl.com/8v295fv
    B. http://tinyurl.com/9sxqbwr

    I did not fill the build out at all just showing where I wanna put points up to 54. Will the Str scaling really put massive damage onto the Dark magic or I am better of scaling for the fast cast and possibly a non ele dex dagger. The rest of the points will go into Vit up to 99, with perhaps a shade of them into End.

    Thanks

    some one posted a video in the PC section i believe comparing the Manus Cata to the TCC for both Dark and Crystal spells.

    and while the Manus one was more powerful on dark spells it wasn't by that much (im talking like maybe 100-200 damage when the damage is already above 1k), and imo enough to warrent the extra pts in str. i have also seen some awesome pvp videos of casters who mix dark with crystal, for example cast Persuers then right as they take off blast with CSS as the enemy will attempt to back track since side movement doesn't always work well with persuers, and CSS will hit them in the face.

    Manus Cat does not increase spell power by Str, but it increases dark sorcery power in general. The rumor only began because Manus Cat has scaling with Str (B I think), which is only applicable to the physical attack of the cat itself (a bash or whatever). So increase Str to 14 if you want to use the dark sorceries with the catalyst.

    Yes the trolly B scaling Manus Cat only affects the pysical swing... But it's twice as heavy and only offers a minor damage boost. I personally prefer TCC on a pure caster.

    I would use it as a backup weapon for a Str/Int build, or if my build was a pure dark sorcerer.
