    Faith builds and weapons

    Post by IV_Mark_VI on Fri Jan 25, 2013 7:54 pm

    Divine weapons are normally a split between physical and divine; so if making a divine based character for PvE, any suggestions for a weapon?

    I'm thinking scaling is not as important with divine weapons, evne with a higher faith, since the scaling will be split between Faith and whatever physical stats the weapon has.

    Occult is another option for a pure faith build; in this case, is scaling more important? I'm assuming so.

    So my assumptions:
    Divine: high base AR.
    Occult: Scaling is more important.

    Also, special weapons that rely on faith: Grant, Dragon Slayer Spear (although this is more on the physical side) and Crescent Axe. All weapons that rely on faith have a significant physical component. That being said, would a more effective (from a weapon point of view) for a faith build to split it between physical and faith evenly, because of diminishing returns?

    I think you get a better damage output when you use Divine instead of Occult.
    Let's say you use weapon A with 50 Faith

    It's going to be like this f.e.:
    - Divine A: 145 physical dmg, 253 magic dmg
    - Occult A: 161 physical dmg, 223 magic dmg

    From what I've heard, even split damage is bad.

    Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong people, this is what I was told silly
