    Totally different: All I need is 1[SL100]

    Welcome to the Salty Death Arena, how tough are you?
    How tough am I? How tough am I!? I made a Mage build in Dark Souls!
    *Chuckle* Yeah, so?
    With only 1 INT point invested...
    ...Right this way, sorry to keep you waiting!

    C&C? I've been wanting to work on some more unique builds as of late, so why not make a different Mage build that utilizes low level magic? What are your opinions? Can this work? Can this only fail?
    Spoiler:

    Welcome to the Salty Death Arena, how tough are you?
    How tough am I? You got any DWGR?
    Yeah sure, here.
    IT'S ON! *Mid rolls continuously*(Heavy breathing), Maybe if I just take a little...
    Get out of here, this place is too MLG for you!
    Too MLG for me! That's down right ridiculous! I'll have you know me and my gank squad lost to a invader this morning and I only raged for 20 minutes!
    Listen, Casual, I think you'd be more comfortable over that place.
    Casual Forest? Are you saying I belong in Casual Forest?
    Oh no, sorry. I was actually pointing to the place next to it.
    Casul Forest!?
    Yeah, unless you think you're tough enemy to fight me:

    Pretty cool. I'm working on a very similar build, only I'm focusing less on stuff like Dark bead and more on GMW and oolicile magics. It's a long shot but we'll see what happens. We should duel each other at some point!

    You just can't go wrong with Dark Bead and it is the only magic that can actually scare people off you, not to mention it can work Mid-range since it spreads. Although, Oolacile magic isn't bad, it is much more support magic than offensive magic, which I wanted to try here.

    Any how, low class offensive magic is very helpful since the casts let you infinitely spam it (Dark Orb is particularly helpful because of its devastating stagger and guard break) and the fact that it means you can pressure practically endlessly since 45 DEX makes quick casts. A small tip to note, casting magic doesn't stop stamina regeneration, so my tactic is usually to waste stamina, then Dark Bead so they hesitantly run off and you can pressure them at longer ranges while you recover.

    The only problem is that I can't 1H the Melee weapon for that tactic, but I'm sure, considering the stats that it has, I can find another.

    Dark bead is actually pretty weak at that Int, aside from the stagger it's not too much of a threat, you might hit the opponent for 3-400 with all of the beads.

    Weak or not, Dark Bead has a fear factor in it that will scare people away. Hey, people dodge my Great Soul Arrow and it only deals around 100-200 damage. The point of this build wasn't "be a powerful, short lasting mage!" it was meant to be a long-lasting caster with continous pressure, but the only thing that pressures well close range is Dark Bead.
