I think I'm going to go a quality / int build. And end up using the mlgs or whatever scaling int gear

For some reason I want to do an int build where I'm mostly up close and personal with an infused weapon rather than staying far away and shooting soul spears. Is this possible??

I was trying to pre-order this on Playstation last night but all the sudden my credit card does not work and sony will not help me so I think I'm going to break down and buy this one on Xbox One.

I just really hope within a few months that the Xbox One fan base is around for this game.

So glad I'm gonna be post call all day tomorrow.

Finally came slightly out of blackout to check the weapon upgrade setup, living that they took all the QoL changes from DS2 and made them even better. Now if only they don't make it so the mace is definitively the best one handed weapon in the game, and every loving boss is some variation of "dude in armor" that is weak to bludgeoning damage and using a sword is about as effective as punching them.

SoggyGravy posted:

Question: if I want to do some magic plus melee and am just casual enough of a player to not want to do more than one character what stats/build options could I focus on that will allow me to enjoy early and late game?

This is going to depend on what you want out of magic.

Dark Souls 3 kinda wants you to really commit to magic if you want to use offensive spells. Sorcery and miracles both soft-cap at 60, instead of 40 (which is where weapon scaling soft caps for all stats); pyromancy soft-caps whenever the sum of your Intelligence + Faith is 60 (so 30/30, 40/20, whatever). If you just want to use some buff spells and utility spells, you can pretty safely get maybe 15/15 to meet requirements and enjoy having a variety of useful spells, including the pretty good pyromancy weapon buff. If you want to do full-on offensive casting, though, that's pretty much what you're going to have to build around, and use infused weapons for melee.

I wouldn't try to split the difference, at least not the way it's balanced right now. You're kind of going to have to pick between "primarily a physical build with some utility/buff spells" or "full-on wizard."

A 960 or even maybe a 950 wouldn't cost a whole lot and add a lot of "power" to your system.

It's what I have and it should be playable with bells and whistles turned off.

If it can run a busted, broken game like Planetside 2 at 60+ fps then it should be fine with DS3. The new cards can't come soon enough.

Yes, though unless you go significantly above 40 Int you're not going to have very strong Soul Spears to back up your infused melee.

My recommendations would be to either:
  • Get 30 Int, focus the rest on whatever mix of Dex/Str you want, soft-cap one of those (40 Dex or 40 Str). You'd be a buff build--the 30 Int is for Crystal Magic Weapon--with access to a great variety of utility spells. Your offensive magic, aside from weapon buffs, will be lovely, though.
  • Get 60 Int, just enough Dex/Str to wield whatever weapon you want to infuse. You'll be able to do solid damage with Crystal (magic, scales with Int) and Chaos (fire, scales B/B with Int/Faith) weapons and have enough Int to throw 1000+ damage Crystal Soul Spears if you want to.

How early in the game do you get the white soapstone/ability to co-op? Vague answer preferred.

Yea I'm waiting to see how this goes. I'm really reigning in my gaming spending (will be living on one income in the near future). DS3 is the only game i'm interested in this year so if the 660 works I'll hold out for new cards and see what the market looks like later.

Can someone help me parse this.

Is this where you can match with people +/- 10 soul levels, and weapon enhancement effectively adds to your soul level (bumping you up a bracket)
or
Is this where you can match with people +/- 10 soul levels, and are further filtered to only match with people who are +/- 2 levels on their weapon?
