    When strenghtening sorcerer, which attributes should i concentrate on?

    The thing is, i have strenghtened his DEX & INT and of course some levels have gone to VIT & END, but primary levels i have spent to DEX & INT. should i put some points to STR, so he would use Iaito or Uchi? I like those weapons. Bleed effect is nice. Would like him to be agile like a thief, and wise like a sorcerer should be.

    Thanks in advance. Respect to all.

    You need high INT and ATT for a sorcerer. Iaito is better because the Damage difference is like 10 but its faster. Make the Katana Enchanted/Magic and another Normal. Str is near useless unless you want some for an elemental weapon. (I stop at 22 for the SK sword.)

    How many slots for ATT? And INT; is 50 enough, or is the White Dragon Breath worth for reaching 50? For my understanding, spells are; generally nothing in PvP, melee weapons are better. Cause that dam lag... But still its fun to try different methods to slay enemies. In PvP, people uses cowardly methods to kill each other. For example, Wrath Of God, or 2 or 3 versus 1. Bunch of cowards... or lagstab. Fair matches are what i appreciate.

    Thanks Yarx.

    You're building your guy right, keep doing what you're doing. As for 50 INT and the White Dragon's Breath sorcery, I'm not a fan. I like the CSS at 44 INT much more. It looks amazingly cool but I just can't get that blasted spell to hit, better players than me do say they've had success with the spell taking lock-on off, however.

    Strength to 16 for MLGS, other than that, use INT all the way. Depending on the level you want your build at, pure damage is usually the best way for a sorcerer to go imo. If you mess up you'll probably die anyway, especially in PvP, so go for raw power. ATT 19 for 5 slots should be fine, I never really needed more than 4 for PvE and Sunbro purposes. You should also be able to use Velka's rapier and MLBH, they are the other two great INT scaling weapons.

    If you don't want to use a scaling weapon, buff a +15 weapon with CMW, you'll probably get more damage that way.

    As for WDB, it's great for PvE because of the charges it has. You can basically fire it all day, and it hits for ~750 damage a shot with INT 50, BDR, and Crown of Dusk.

    Why is wrath of the gods cowardly but White dragon breath is ok ?

    Wrath of the Gods is very fast acting, deals a good amount of damage, and requires absolutely no aiming to use effectively. WDB is slow acting, it does deal good damage but you'll only hit very bad players with it unless you happen to be a pro at anticipating opponent movements.

    White dragon breath: slow casting speed, requires aiming, requires 50 int

    Wrath of the gods: fast casting speed, no aiming needed, requires 28 faith.

    I wouldn't say wotg is cowardly, it's just over used, sometimes unfair, and often boring. But it is punishable when you expect it so i'm fine with people using it.
