Well, I tried and had a hard time. It seems that starting with a class that gives you a spell (Pyromancer) makes your life easier (I wasn't being able to pass through the very first part of the game, yeah, I suck that much).
The thing is: I don't know what scales with what, but I know that I want to start with the pyromancer class. I also wanted to walk around with a kick *** Uchigatana (I love the thrust move that sword gives). But I have some questions.
First of all, I need mobility, being able to roll at will and be agile, so I guess that a heavy armor is out of question. Second, I wanted the most powerful pyromancer spells, I mean, to do the most damage possible with pyro spells. Third, to be able to use a good sword like an Uchigatana or Queelag sword with high damage for bleeding effect.
How do those weapons scale? Also, can I build a dex/faith build and still have powerful pyro spells, since their damage output isn't directly correlated to INT?
And damn, this game is hard.
Thanks in advance guys.
