    I find your use of faith.... Disturbing

    Post by cloudyeki on Wed Apr 04, 2012 6:54 pm

    I bet I'm the only one like this, but I feel like I'm Patches when it comes down to faith. For every TWoP, WoTG, and heal I have an urge to incinerate the player. Might stem back to Demon's Souls, where I never even touched the stat. I only even use the stat now so I can have a divine weapon in the catacombs.

    When I pvp, and someone uses a miracle I just (try to) annihilate them. Qualaag's Furysword (such an appropriate weapon name) + great combustion in tandem, or fireball chucking into a storm. I feel so twisted when it comes to faith. Please tell me I'm not the only one.

    Same can be said about Pyro since it doesn't raise your SL.

    i am a faith user since demon's but i have to agree with zero here pyro is the most op'd magic in the game even after the patch because you dont need any xp to use even the strongest of the pyromacies.

    i think this topic isn't about spell strength but more about just disliking the magic type from a lore or habit point of view. i personally like all the spell types equally each being a tool to my own ends, besides the game never specifies WHAT exactly you have faith in anyway twisted

    See I'm just not all that fond of magic in general, I don't like the feel of it. I can use it very well, but I find using a sword to solve my problems way more enjoyable.

    At the end of the day all magic can be dodged so the bias against any specific one isn't warranted. People hate miracles because they die to them it's just that simple. You can also complain about the combustion spells acting as fast melee with almost no stamina drain just as you can complain about mage spells OHKO potential. I personally like miracles since I normally play shield wielding noble types anyway. I just wish Flask didn't exist & party heals didn't take up 2 slots. Would make an actual healer build more playable.

    Pyro's what I hate. If someone tries any kind of fire on me, excluding weapons, I get mad enough that I'll do pretty much whatever I have to to kill them.

    I think it's because my second invasion ever Combusted the living crap out of me in the Parish. Still haven't gotten over that.

    Ditto, although to state the obvious it all depends on the HOW and not the WHAT.Sorcery can be disturbing, armor, weapons, even gestures.

    Plus I think it's a lot easier to just tackle a situation.

    "Alright, now if I use CHSM I can trick them into rolling this way and unlock, then using CSS I can hit them for half their health, I can then buff my weapon to pressure them into running and striking them from behind as they flee."

    "I'm gonna hit him in the face with a hammer!"

    It's so much simpler.

    Lol. Yeah I can understand. But in a way you have to nurture the fire to be at your best. To get the flame to it's full power you level the flame up instead of yourself. I've spent more souls on my fire than my character in my first playthrough so maybe that's why.

    Lore-wise nurturing a flame and sharing it is something I really like. Sorcery and faith are both at odds (Seath vs Havel) but everyone hates pyromancy. That's why the great swamp is where pyromancy thrives. It's kind of the zen/natural magic of the world vs the higher power based faith or the scholarly sorcery.

    I use it exactly as Rant said, so that's why I sated that it's the use of it not the actual faith or whatever....

    I am good with any type of magic, what I can't stand is spell stacking.

    9 consecutive wogs, or 6 acid breaths. It drives me nuts.

    Why shouldn't we be allowed to stack spells if we've beaten the game so many times?

    Faith magic has it bad the healing spells are over shadowed by Flask, the weapon enchants only have one use, the lightning spears pale in comparison to their Soul Spear counterparts, while Karmic Justice sucks & only does 250 damage when compared to a 800 damage WOTG. To make matters worse those pesky mages can use our Sword Dances by simply equiping Velka's Talisman. **** not right yo!

    Agreed on that Yukon. Mostly because if 8 gc's and Qualaag swipes doesn't do it I'm probably dead. Or I forgot to switch to tempest.

    I actually find uses all the time for the heals in the Forest, I hit a group of farmers but take some damage, run away and great Heal. Back at full, and back into the fray. For Co-Op it works great too, since you don't want to waste flasks on yourself as a summon, I tend to feel like a loafer if I'm just waiting for the host to flask rather than heal myself.

    I would rather this game not have a consumable healing item that recharges after every bonfire. Makes it to easy. Imagine if you actually had to farm for Flask or an item similar to it? Better yet the only healing item being humanity which would only restore 50% of your total health.

    I don't really mind the flask, 20 uses max, you still have to take time to use it, so I can BS farmers as they chug, as well they often stand still and can just be stunlocked. I really don't mind the flask as an invader, I think farming it would turn off a ton of new players. Farming anything turns people off typically.

    It makes the game itself to easy is what I'm saying. You can always spam Lloyd's Talisman to prevent Flasking.
