    basic battlemage idea help

    Post by tofucactaur on Mon Jul 23, 2012 11:42 am

    hi krew
    I have been playing dark souls since release, but have pretty much stuck to what I was used to from demons souls which is purely melee based builds, anyway now I am wanting to get trophies and expand on what I do in the game and have decided to build a battlemage

    http://tinyurl.com/c3c6q42

    here is the build i put together roughly, any advice would be most appreciated.
    also, if anyone has a quick link to a good guide for getting all sorceries in one playthrough that would be amazing.

    cheers

    For PvP just swap logans for TCC.
    and the info to get each spell is on the wiki... most can just be bought. best of luck!

    I'd drop dex to 40, add 3 to att and 2 to Vit (or even endurance). Pick up another CSS, change CSM to HCSM.

    Going to 40 dex is barely a change in casting speed, and you'll get another devestating CSS out of it. I do like the GHSA idea, since it will mess with their timing. Lure them into thinking you are a slow caster, then pop them with a CSS.

    I would recommend a magic weapon or GMW also miracles can make a good battle mage

    Try the Silver Knight Sword. It scales with Dexterity, looks awesome, and you can buff it with CMW, which is the true strength of battlemage type builds. Velka's Rapier is another common choice for split INT-Dex scaling. The MLGS is something that I feel is overused. I see so much of it that it's lost its coolness for me, and people have gotten pretty good at fighting it. Not that you shouldn't use it, but I feel it has a certain stigma like the BKGA. Keep in mind that buffing a spear with CMW can be scarily powerful.

    Threw this together, I think the Cleric Robes look really good with Havel's.

    I don't see much of a point putting a great scythe when you already have the MLGS. You should probably try and pair a fast weapon with a slow weapon like the MLGS. I threw an uchi in there because I couldn't think of anything else, though you could probably throw a rapier in there and have a really effective turtle class. If anything else you could just put the Moonlight Horn back on, or a BSS.

    Sorry if you don't like it.
