I can't find any site that lists how much damage certain sorcery spells would do with different levels of INT.

I am working on an anti-ganker build, and I am wondering having 40 INT instead of 50 will make that much of a difference in terms of damage from spells like Pursuers, Dark Bead, Soul Spear, etc.

I was thinking of taking INT down to 40 to put extra points into VIT and END.

The magic adjust on the tin crystal cat is 272 I believe at 40 and 293 at 50. I can't speak for the others. That's just a build I have.

Does your build have 40 INT? And are you able to 1-shot people with certain spells? That's basically what I'm looking for.

If you want DAMAMGE! past 40 INT, just go for a damage modifier. Red tearstone, etc.

Is there a damage calculator I can look up for Sorcery spell damage like the weapon AR calculator on that character planner site?

I can one shot with my 50, but I'm using some multipliers. Crown of Dusk, Bellowing Dragoncrest. It's not unreasonable for me to do 1400-1600 damage or more with crystal soul spear. The Red Tearstone is risky. What SL are you shooting for?

Have you thought about going 44 int for CSS?
