Regarding equipment for magic user.

#1blizzardrgPosted 3/31/2014 10:11:32 PM
Hi,

Well, i choose to be a Swordman. Will i still be able to buy sorcerer/Magic user equipment in the game? I notice that all the armor and equipment i can buy up till now are knight/warrior armor..

You can find and buy stuff later. If you are wanting to incorporate magic into a DW swordsman build, I suggest farming some respawning ghosts with magic and pyromancy in the undead crypt when you come across them

MLGS, Blue Flame reffered to in post 2, Flame Longsword, and while not a sword Magic Mace are good choices. Also Dragonrider soul weapons, bow, halbred, twinblade, are good for INT builds.

For early game your best bet for gear is to put 20/20 int/faith and talk to the hex dude in Huntsman Copse for the gear he gives/sells you.

20 faith may be higher than you want but he will give you his set and you can always respec later.

Alternative to that would be to kill him and theoretically you could by his set from the skinny witch lady.

Also the Lizard staff is the best staff for int builds with s scaling in magic for much of the game. It will be a randomn drop from the necro mage guys in Huntsman Copse cave and the Chariot Boss fight.

you need to use a branch of yore to unpetrify the guy in the Lost Bastille blocking the jail cell campfire and then he will trade you for boss souls

He also has good magic gear and will give you his set after trading four boss souls with him although that is more mid game than early.

get 2 branches of yore from harvest valley, 1 for straid 1 for the pyro lady by benhart.

You need a pharos lockstone to get to straid unless you can kill the ruin sents.
