    Magic Black Bow of Pharis Scales S with Int?!

    Post by JoeBroski09 on Tue Oct 30, 2012 3:36 am

    WAAAT?! I was going to use the Moonlight bow, or whatever it's called, made from Gwendoline's soul, but that scales with FAITH! GAH! But the Black Bow of Pharis, upgraded to magic or enchanted, scales C with dex, and S with Int!!! That means that it should do great damage, right? I hope so. I need a bow for my Dex/Int build.

    I guess if you have a Dex build Phairs is better.. I've got a dex build myself but I usually use the Darkmoon, I just like its appearance big grin But I use the bow just to get the attention of enemies OR to poison them, so I really don't care about damage :alien:

    Sadly, there isn't an intelligence bow, since there is "soul arrow." But I just discovered that if I'm Dex/Int, a Black Bow of Pharis upgraded to magic is best. I think. We'll have to see.

    Both the Longbow and shortbow has the same S modifier for Int as the Pharis bow. The Shortbow has lower base damage, and the Longbow has higher base damage. For an Int build Longbow should be stronger, unless you need the extra range of the Pharis bow, or the draw speed of the shortbow. The Composite bow only has an A rating, but its base damage is the highest of all the bows.
    Enchanted also has a higher modifier than Magic, but the base damage is a bit lower. For high Int Enchanted should still be the best choice.

    I looked a bit more into this, and decided to add the bows to mugen.

    According to the planner, Enchanted upgrade does the most magic damage, but Magic upgrade gives the highest ar. The magic damage is equal for the Enchanted Longbow and the Enchanted Composite Bow, but the Composite bow still has the highest ar (close range).

    The problem with crossbows is that there are no magic bolts that contributes to the overall damage. The only viable elemental crossbow is lightning + lightning bolts.

    Is there ever a time to choose the Magic upgrade over the Enchanted upgrade?

    Is there a magic arrow that all bows can use? Also, I may upgrade the Black Bow, for it's range, than also a short bow. That way I have some diversity.

    Sadly, though.. I'll have to go get the blue titanite slab... bleh. And I only get 1.

    EDIT: Nevermind. Black bow only. Why? Cause I want the bow for range. Once they get close enough, I have my spells.

    If you have the dlc you will find another blue slab in a chest hidden in the woods.
