    Velka talisman & Tin Darkmoon catalyst scaling

    Do you think the next spiritual successor of these should remove the need to use it's designated base stats to use spells and miracles and just scale completely off the other stat at the cost of lower scaling? What I'm trying to say is that if you have, say something like 44 faith and 10 intelligence, you can then use the crystal soul spear providing you use the Tin Darkmoon catalyst, or if you have, say 50 intelligence and 10 faith, you can cast Sunlight spear providing you use the Velka talisman. There would be a cost of course that scaling would be lower than most casting equipment like they would be a B or C scaling.

    Do you think this would be better than what we have now? It would definitely open up the variety on what you could do and it would reduce the incredibly high investment to be a mage/faith offensive caster.

    I think the idea could be studied, but it kind of sounds like having your cake and eating it too. There would be almost no difference in going Faith vs. going Intelligence since you'd have access to both branches of spells, albeit at slightly downgraded scaling.

    As presented here, I'd have to say no.

    Agreed, it'd be too OP. The great thing about these items is that you still have to invest enough to get the spell, but once you do you can use your powerful stat to boost it.
