So what's the point of weapon buffs?

Now that these spells/miracles have required attributes to use, what is the point of using them? As before, divine/magic and fire/lightning weapons can't be buffed, which is fortuitous as only the builds that can cast the spell would be using the weapons. This leaves the remaining builds to have to waste points in int/faith to be able to buff their weapon.

There are crystal weapons, of course, but those aren't very efficient...

Crystal magic weapon + standard claymore = 419 damage or so.

If lightning builds could buff their weapons I'd never play dark souls again.

Oh don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that elemental weapons should be able to buff their weapons.

As for crystal weapons, they have such limited usefulness that it is not viable for a build.

Due to the limits of stat scaling, I think all non-elemental weapons should be able to be buffed.

i think he was referring to crystal magic weapon the spell not casting magic weapon on a claymore

crystal is like the third tier of magics after great

Anyone know how much Crystal Magic Weapon adds to the damage of the weapon at INT = 25?

Edit: Hmm scratch that. I have 50 faith and use the catalyst that scales off faith. I get over 300 in that case. I could check how it does with a regular catalyst but I'm done for now.

Does it add Magic damage or is it Physical damage?
