Something else to remember is that, in addition to weapons and armor, you can also reinforce your catalysts/chimes through the Blacksmith which increases their spell damage. I've seen +1 rings, so there must be a way to reinforce those as well, but I don't know exactly how.

Those are actually uniquely different rings, no forging necessary.

And yeah, spell casting implements scale with your [attribute] BNS value and the related damage stat.

What are the requirements to summon/put down your white soap stone? My stone is always grayed out and I've yet to see a summon sign anywhere.

Awesome guide man. I'd recommend you say which beginning class is good for what. For example which class is good for a quality build, strength build etc.

Warning: You cannot use summons nor leave a summon sign for others if you are in the Company of Champions.

Newbies don't limit yourselves to knight and cleric- figure out what you want. The rest of the info here is really important.

Another tip for magic users:

- You can upgrade your catalysts or chimes at the blacksmith. They tend to have different scaling values for sorcery, miracles, or hexes.

- Look at the two scaling values on these items to compare their normal scaling and their scaling for hexes. Some tools are better suited for one spell type over another.

cloranthy ring (spelling?) is REALLY useful, forget where it is though, i think in the first place where you need to use a pharros lockstone
