    You need 32 INT to be able to use that catalyst.

    Oolacile catalyst's high magic adjust will help you out a lot. Your INT is a little low to benefit off any scaling.

    I just wanted enough for CMW I don't really know how to play an INT character. All of my others are either pyro or melee.

    How bout http://tinyurl.com/88xkhcd
    Much more survivability. And gives you CMW.
    I removed most the strength. I dont see why you need it if you are doing a rapier build.

    Question. why int rather than faith.
    if you want an Int build here is what I would recommend. (I have no idea why the strength was so high...)
    cast speed between 40 and 45 should be irrelevant just for a buff and I'm not sure it even applies for buffs.
    as for the endurance switch it from vit to taste.
    1st draft. http://tinyurl.com/7867jt2
    4th (the other two were unnecessary) http://tinyurl.com/83dbged
    5th (this is the not very classy but powerful one basically gets you free stamina) http://tinyurl.com/7nvfp9x

    Consider switching out the hornet for favour and protection unless you are very good at parrying. backstabs wont be easy to come by.
    Edit:
    I see I was ninja'ed in terms of the strength issues. silly

    Demento, watch as you add the points to the dex stat what it is actually giving you, past 45 cast speed does not increase, past 40 your weapon is getting negligibly stronger.

    I like the first one. I'll probally use that but instead of the armor us Elite Knight armor..Or just stick with it. Just depends on looks.

    Ahh. I have no sense of style which can be a problem silly
    also what is the poise on your elite knight set. it makes quite a siginificant difference. (that calculator has the lower values in it)

    Substitute it with the Bellowing Dragoncrest Ring or Lingering. Bellowing for added damage, Lingering for a longer lasting buff. Also, you might want to consider the Crown of Dusk to make your buff extra powerful.

    Okay you have the better of the elite knight sets, this means the calc will be off partially. and I would recommend favour and protection yes. if we are still going with int how about this.
    http://tinyurl.com/79vsr44 (actually 76 poise)

    also https://soulswiki.forumotion.com/t9-crystal-magic-weapon-ver20-ayntk-all-you-need-to-know-from-old-forum the bellowing dragoncrest ring and dusk crown will not help.

    lingering however will, up to you.
