    Pure caster build

    Post by FellipeMariano on Wed Oct 10, 2012 10:54 am

    So, anyone has tips for a pure caster build. My idea is to have 50INT and a good VIT. Also, elemental weapons (but I'm in doubt of wich ones to use). I wish to cap my SL at 60 or 80... I know it will not be a very good build for PvP but still I want to be able to duel sometimes...

    Never played as caster so any tip is welcomed.

    Moonlight Greatsword is good for pure int.
    If you want both Faith and Int at that level, go for 30 and 30, then the rest in vitality. At level 60 this will be viable to use both miracles and sorcery, while getting you room for HP.

    Or you could go 44/40 and glass cannon it.

    Thanx, looks like a solid caster build.

    I will try that.

    I like Rant's build very much. In my opinion the dragon breath is too slow for PvP without 45 Dex, so put on some DLC spells and pyro for close quarters since you already have range options.

    dragon breathe to slow!!!? HA

    i love WDB for pvp, the long cast time makes it perfect for manual aiming, gives you alot of time to predict where they are running to, and you don't even have to hit the person just lay the "spike strip" down in the direction they rolled to dodge it and let them walk over it.

    just ask a few people i have dueled from here with it. it was the only time i actually beat Reim more then once in one night

    no ones gonna cast it when you are close, i will create safe distance then cast, its just like using Firetempest in pvp,

    the only thing left to do is duel my caster! lets rock it in the Painted world arena some time

    i think i dueled your faith build the other day the one that uses the Occulate Sunlight blade? i was on my Dex/Vergil build, or as i should call it my Try hard Build now because he uses a Katana.

    Yeah that one. He is missing GLGS Dance but I'm too lazy to take him to NG+ (killed Nito by mistake).

    The only problem for the Darkmoon Sword is the 16STR requirement...

    Because I was in ToG and killed him. By then I didn't thought about GLGS Dance until much later. :/

    I'm sorry but when did a PURE caster ever carry a sword? Honestly some people :roll:

    Crown of Dusk + Bellowing Dragoncrest Ring = MANDATORY

    Pure casters really shine at SL 120 but assuming your more in it for the Arena...

    A pure caster always carries a sword (curved sword/rapier/spears are the best because of low stamina consumption) in case he runs out of spells because of a smartass dodgy player.

    Your right of course...

    If only he would go to 120 then the need for weapons would be no more!

    But alas...I do suppose swords do have their uses :pirat:

    Here's what I plan to run for a pure caster, it looks a little funny but I think it'll be good if I can play it right. Plus there's so much swag in this setup. ;D

    http://tinyurl.com/9kfzpbj

    EDIT: you guys bring up a good point with limited casting, I may opt for Dusk crown ring after I get some time to test it out.

    I recently made a low lvl pure caster and it's really fun for PVP as well as Co-op. I wouldn't bother with such high Vitality\Endurance with a caster - the point is to evade attacks and you'll only be using your melee as backup. I don't use med/heavy armors /weapons, so high End isn't necessary. An Enchanted +5 BSS does reliable damage if you don't want level Str to use Moonlight Greatsword. You definitely want your Int at 50 min so you'll be able to use all sorceries to good effect - you can take down high Vit players pretty easily. You'll want to be able to use Logan's Catalyst or Crystal Catalyst, they scale well with Int. Other than that, just add points into whatever other attributes you like, just make sure that you focus on Int. Hope that helps...
