    How to spend souls..?

    Post by Welho on Fri Aug 09, 2013 4:15 pm

    So, my problem is souls, and how I should use them. Currently I have 3 million souls, and don't know how to use them. 
    I'm a sorcerer sl 146, and I'm on NG+++. 
    My stats are
    Vitality: 40
    Attunement: 50
    Endurance: 40
    Strenght (about): 17
    Dexterity: 11
    Resistance: 8
    Intellegence: 51
    Faith: 8

    I just don't know what to level any more. And if not level ups, should I buy something? So could someone tell me how should I spend my souls?

    Shield is +14, armors +9, and I have a longsword collection including a magic +10, enchanted +5, fire +10, regular +15, lightning +5 and divine +10. So no upgrading to do anymore.

    I'd say go into dex and start using buffed weapons... Or maybe go into miracles for bonus healing and offensive miracles

    Already have a couple of ascended pyromancy flames +5 and a bunch of pyromancies, and I'm not using any of them because my sorceries are more powerful.

    As for miracles, don't want to use my attunement slots on them. I have thought about buffed dex weapons, but I'm not sure if they are better than my crystal souls spears, dark beads and pursuers..

    A buff for one minute on a +15... lets say balder side sword will probably do 300-400 per swing, and it can swing like i dunno once every second lets say for simplicity.

    It potentially can do (lets give 10 seconds total for stamina regen in the minute) 50 swings.. so thats potentially 15000 damage if you do 300 damage a swing... Can you see why it's worth it for bosses? Buffs are just the best way of dispatching them if you can get lots of consecutive hits.

    Wouldn't be much use on DLC bosses though, but you just change strategy for the kind of boss you're facing

    Yes, I know it's an effective strategy. But there are a few things I must say about it.
    First of all, it's completely unrealistic to say you can get 50 hits to a boss in a minute, because the boss will be moving and on NG+++ they do a ton of damage too, so you will have to block or roll away.
    Then, secondly, using dark bead on a boss (18 castings currently) does 1000 - 2000 damage per hit, depending on the boss. Casting dark bead takes just over a second maybe, and does not consume stamina, so it actually does more damage. Plus, I can use crystal souls spears, meaning I don't have to get close to the boss while dealing damage to it.

    With as many casts as you have now I can get why you don't really need any more to be honest..

    Well I guess there's not much else you need except higher health or damage against mobs to make it easier, so maybe up your str and dex or maybe up your vit a bit more

    Alright, maybe I'll just take more vitality. Or would it be better to take endurance to get more equip load?

    Depends to be honest. If it's easier to get higher defence levelling end than health with vit it's worth it. Just work on maximising what's available- though sorcery is good in that you can avoid damage and perfect bosses.

    Not sure why you have so much Attunement, but it's your build, not mine.

    As for souls, spend them on consumables, like Homeward Bones, Humanities (if possible), or Green Blossoms. If you're using a bow/crossbow, spend them on arrows and bolts.

    Or, if you really need it, buy some titanite from the Giant Blacksmith; he has the most variety of titanite available. Expensive, but you have a lot of souls.

    Donate them to the poor GiantDads? There's a lot of divorces, their children are leaving them and everything sucks. Giving them some souls by jumping off the nearest cliff in their world might help  Shrug

    You could go all out and make yourself a Darkmoon bow +5 and buy 999 Moonlight arrows.
    But you would need 16 dex and 16 faith for it. Look Skyward
