    Sorceror's build help?

    Post by The_Red_Drifter on Mon Oct 08, 2012 7:47 pm

    I've been struggling with trying to figure out the right stats for a sorcery build. I keep switching out various combinations on it but it still strikes me as not being right. I started off with this:
    http://tinyurl.com/9n7fdpp
    I felt that vit was too low after looking at it, and there was too much unnecessary weight on it for defenses to matter. So I messed with it and I can't figure out what I want.
    This is what I have at the moment:

    My intelligence build:
    VIT: 45 (1424 HP)
    ATT: 19 (5 spell slots)
    END: 40 (160 Stamina)
    STR: 16 (for 1h MLGS)
    DEX: 14 (for bows if needed)
    RES: 8 (base)
    INT: 50 (MLGS's AR is 480 and TCC has Mag Adj 293)
    FTH: 8 (base)

    For weapons, I have an elemental Uchi instead of the Balder Sword. My armor is different and gives me a med roll (but that's all personal preference really).
    Rings are different too.
    With this setup, I fare pretty well in PvP.

    I'd figured I could fall back on pyromancies if need be, actually.
    Also, why all low dex? Is the faster casting speed not worth the amount of dex needed?

    what about something like this? http://tinyurl.com/8cj4jrs a riposte from velkas rapier with those stats does a little more than 1k pretty much every time with no hornet.

    I haven't tested it, but I'm pretty sure that the wiki says that casting speed only sees a significant increase with high dex when you use pyros. Sorceries and miracles see an increase, but its rather insignificant.

    Ah, I see.
    I was kinda hoping I could get more DEX based
    suggestions, since I didn't want to scrap this one. To be honest, I put a
    good chunk of effort in-game for this before asking (this was just
    before I decided to start BB glitching toons). I dumped a good chunk of
    stats in INT, but I managed to put just enough stats in STR, DEX and END
    to not to do most of these suggestions.

    I really like this, although I don't know why I should use Composite over Pharis. I'm guessing the Aural Decoy is for mind games + general invading?
    Actually, this gave me an idea to salvage this toon and be at SL 120:
    http://tinyurl.com/8hldkt9
    I'm kinda stuck with END at 26 now, but it let's me carry around a MLGS with the BSS no problem, while still wearing full armor. I don't know why I never think of the Dark Hand other than the fact that I get too attached to GCS and auto it on every build I do. I get some options to switch around weapons like Velka's rapier and the ML Horn as well.
    Also, I'm seeing a few suggestions for Logan's Catalyst. Should I switch or keep with the TCC?

    aural decoy is for screwing around with your opponent, the comp bow is way better for duels since its faster.

    Logan's is the best Catalyst over 40 INT that doesn't half your casts. TCC offers more power but half the spells.

    I'm aware of that. I was just asking if the power boost is worth the halving.
    Also, never noticed that about the bows, I generally don't use bows much in duels and the few times I had were with the Composite Bow.

    I always switch from Logan's to the TCC if I'm invaded. If I can't hit them with half casts I probably can't hit them at all.

    Also, I so desperately wanted to use Pharis' bow when I started PvPing -- it looks so much cooler than the comp -- but this is one of the times when function wins out over form for me. Comp bow is awesome in PvP.
