I'm making a dex build for PvE and wasn't too concerned with magic but after using up my gold pine resin I really want some kind of weapon buff on-hand, is Intelligence or Faith generally considered better?

I'm not sure actually, I use 25 INT for Crystal Magic Weapon, but I heard Sunlight Blade thing is also great.

Darkmoon one is the best though, if you can actually get it to max rank.

i think DMB does the most dmg, since it also ranks up with cov. but you get more uses out of crystal.

Int has the weakest buffs, but you get more of them. The two faith buffs are stronger but you only get one cast per. DMB is the strongest buff, but to really get it up there you have to rank up in Darkmoon Blades. Sunlight Blade isn't as strong as DMB, but it's lightning damage instead which has its uses.

I'd go faith. Just getting your faith up high enough to use them will grant you access to a bunch of other handy miracles.

Which buff is available earliest in game?

And is intelligence or faith considered to have the most useful non-offensive spells?

The best is hands down DMB +3. I have a 40 dex build with that buff on my great scythe +15 I'm consistently hitting people for 800+ damage. The obvious major drawback is you have to be in the darkmoon covenant to use it.

DMB is severely overrated, it has the highest damage output, but crest shield or gmb takes care of it easily enough.

sunlight blade can't be defended against as easily, which imo makes it more useful.
