Sorcerer or Pyromancer?

#1NightMareBunnyPosted 9/29/2011 1:03:38 AM
Since starting out as a knight in demon souls didn't go so well for me
this time i wanted to go the magic route and wondered what the best starter class was for that? sorcerer or pyromancer

what's the key difference between the two classes and what you start with

Pyro is about 6-8 stat points better than pyro

i've heard both ways, does pyro scale with INT or not
Haggar's super will pile drive a shark's jaw into a standing opponent, it will be cancelable 1-frame grab with two character's range

This is untrue Res doesnt count for SL so the only benefit pyro has is a bit more resist.

The inital pyromancer catalyst DOESN'T but there are some that DO.

So it does both. Obviously the scaled ones will outperform the others with proper stats.

sorcerer seems to be the better choice for a pure caster, the stats leaning more toward a straight caster. (higher int, higher attunement)

pyromancer seems to be better for a spellsword-esque character. (more str, endurance, resistance and vitality)

i'm guessing the only real difference between the two is starting equips and stats. i imagine you're free to learn sorceries as a pyromancer and vice versa.

Pyromancer can keep upgrade their Catalyst and give it scaling, the highest scaling pyro catalyst can have is S. So eventually, they gonna hit hard as hell.

In the end you could choose any of the two :P

Sorcerer benefits you in the short term because they should reach some of your desired stats early on. However, for example say you were going to build a mage @ soul level 120 the pyro will reach the kind of stats for a mage the fastest out of all the classes. For the sorcerer they tend to be higher then SL 120 (A few extra soul levels to achive the same desired stats) when they finally get your desired stats. So long term pyro wins.

The only difference between the two, when it comes to endgame, is an extra point in resistance, right? And the same goes for the Wanderer, IIRC.
