I always use logans, but I'm curious If there's a better one.

Ok, well logans is real strong but cuts the uses in half. I'm a mage build and was wondering if I should use another catalyst. What's your opinion?

logans normal one doesnt and is best for int build with no drawbacks its his crystal one that is stronger but halves uses. otherwise there are others that scale with faith instead of int. personally i use normal logans for pve and stronger one for online

For pve: below 40 int, Beatrice's, above 40 Logan's

For pvp: Tin Crystalisation.

Isnt Mundus catalyst better for dark magic??
I read something about that DarkMagic scale with your streng (depending on how your catalyst scale too).

Manus cat actually scales with str, yes. With a str/int hybrid build it might outdamage the tcc at some point (never tested that), but for your regular int build (16 str/44-50 int) the tcc will outdamage it, even the dark sorceries.

^@kyton: it doesn't scale that well, but yes, dark magic, when used with the manus catalyst, scales slightly with strength. However, for perspective, tcc with WDB at 50 int and 50 str still out damages manus cat dark orb at the same stats.

Ive been using Logan's crystal catalyst for both pve and PvP. So the tin is better for PvP? I think I have every catalyst in my inventory. Which is best for my mage? My int is 41 at the moment and my str is only 31 or 32.

Logan does not halve casts. Use Logans.
