Faith in a pure caster build...

How would you incorporate faith into a pure caster build (sorcerer)? Or would you even?

I think it'd be worth it for survivability, but I don't know what I'd sacrifice or even if much sacrifice would be necessary to begin with.

To anyone planning on building a caster; Are you going to use miracles at all or purely sorceries?

After lurking in livedoor (Dark Souls jap wiki)

I found that there is a Talisman that scale off INT not faith.... yep

So Mage build with miracle might work in this case (even though they wont get highest tier miracle unless they sacrifice more stat into faith)

The scaling on the talisman is A rank by the way.

SC was great on mages in DS, although it may be hard to justify spending 12 sl on it (best mage classes start with 8 and it requires 20 faith now).

Having 18 faith was essential to any build in demons souls. Granted it was just for second chance, but what with limited health, miracles will really be something special in this game.

I was under the impression they retracted that from the Japanese wiki, and there's yet to be any confirmed SC in the game.

That being said, even with that Talisman with int scaling, you'd basically be stuck leveling faith to whatever levels for the desired miracles. So it becomes a matter of "how much are you willing to spend"? You'd need 12 minimum to cast any miracles I think.

From watching people's LPs it does look like 12 is the minimum for the first miracle which means sorcerer type characters would be unlikely to be able to cast any miracles immediately.
