    Quick question about Faith stats

    Post by Automancer on Wed Apr 17, 2013 6:41 am

    Normally players will either go for 30 or 50 Faith.
    30 for SLB and WoG but they'll cap at 50 for maximum damage output for DMB.

    How much is enough Faith for a build that doesn't focus on buffs and don't have the Dusk Crown or any magic/miracle increasing rings?

    Depends on what you're doing. Self buffs? just meet the requirements. maybe to 30 for wog, if you aren't sacrificing something else to get there as its damage is low unboosted, even at 50 faith.

    If you intend to be a caster, get the dusk crown and/or first born ring and go to 50.

    28 for Wog. Alot of miracles do special effects that don't scale with your faith stat so getting the faith you want for the miracle you want is really helpful for a build that isn't faith reliant. I typically go 30 or 50 but I never go 40.

    Anyway if your just looking to use non-scaling miracles like TWoP, Vow of Silence, Magic Barrier, GMB, etc. I see a lot of Artorias builds that use this strategy of using magic and miracles that don't scale with faith or magic.

    Well, i'm planning on using Occult weapons with miracles for certain situations.
    How much Faith should i go to? 50?

    Divine is better, its split magic heavy, so it deals more damage.

    Yes, using divine (or occult if you must) hit 50. otherwise you're better off with chaos.

    If you are hitting 50, get at least 1 wog, if not 2. if you can make room for the CoD/dark son crown, do so. The wog damage will help offset the comparatively low damage of split s damage compared to +15.

    Give me a minute, and I'll post my faith build

    There. If you have any questions, shoot.

    Well, here's mine - http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=448489323592085123

    I don't intend on fixing my armor setup since i'm more of an aesthetic kind of guy. It's basically a revamp of an old bow build.

    I'd use the wolf or first born ring instead of the beiber ring. Thats most useful for ditching magic, imo, and gmb shuts down mages.
