    Among the ones i've made, this is my worst. I'm bad at making sorcerer builds.
    Nothing much to say because i don't know. Something feels really weird about this setup.

    Why does your build not have poise? I mean, its not really necessary but in PvP most of the your might spells miss and the opponent will likely be able to roll through and stun you. What other weapons would be good for a mage class? Wouldn't the MLGS be slow due to the nerf? Also, why is there 2 catalysts?

    If I need poise I use wolf ring instead of the dragon ring. It depends in what weapon my enemy wields. I still prefer the moonlight sword because the R2 is awesome for exploding people off cliffs

    Oh right. I totally forgot about the MLGS's special attacks. But why are there 2 catalysts?
    Also if i plan on going for speed, what weapons would you recommend? Because obviously i'll have to start from scratch. I can't get the MLGS that early. Aside from the magic Estoc, i'm considering the MLBH but i need something with a bit of reach.

    I use Logan's to cast pursuers the first time, then use TCC the second time. other wise if i used TCC rught away i would only get one cast out of it. And for a spell that takes up two slots I better get more then 1 cast.

    So logans basically gives me a free cast to start a match out with.

    ok bro listen the strategy with this build is to have your inventory optimized by having a pyro glove right above your dagger in the inventory also put the red tearstone ring above your Dragon cresent ring in the inventory.

    If you are in the arena this is easy to prep

    If you are in the forest just pray you arent spawning on the stairs. LOL

    1. when invading make sure you have the dagger switched out with a un-upgraded pyro glove then cast power within.

    2. Quickly switch out the glove for the dagger.

    3. cast pursuers

    4.dark bead them in mid roll

    5.cast soul spear depending on distance

    6. cast homing soul mass

    7. repeat 3-6

    8.if health is low quickly switch out D Cresent for red tear stone ring.

    9. you should have won by now if you havent then your screwd.

    Side note: you can switch out big hat for crown of the dark sun for a 10% increase in magic dmg OR the crown of dusk for 20% but it increses your weakness to magic by 20% as well

    Hmm, this setup sounds really interesting. I've always wanted to try and spam magic. =X
    In the inventory list, isn't the Pyro glove below the dagger? How do you sort your inventory?

    Well the point of a mage is ......(wait for it)......... to use magic.

    and it wont be considered spaming because you take a really long time to cast with such low dex.

    I would go with this. Poise could be a problem so you can switch Dragon Ring for Wolf Ring.

    Bro all the time . all the time.

    Since the new dlc arena the people who liked to play the 120 range at least half of them went to the 200. Im at 200 and I see tons of action wraiths invaded up forest covies are always after me and I see tons of red soapstones.

    Does the SL200 invasion only work in the forest? Or will i get the same in other areas like the Burg? How does invasion work in the forest?

    Forest hunters come at you from all different lvls

    and in the burg I get invaded quite often.

    Hell even I can invade pretty easy.

    just last knight I was invaded enought in the burg to earn 3 million souls at about 80,000 per each invader. so thats about 37 people.
