I use LS or GLS first and if the damage is not good swap to Rune Sphere. Between Lightning and hexes one of them usually hits a boss really hard. I'm collecting all the spells but I have not been using pyro or regular magic much tbh. I might in NG+
My character is sort of a swiss army knife. Can shoot bow well (Magic infused Dragonrider bow). Can Lightning. Can Spell. Can wear heavy armor (Well Alva) or robes. Uses a Fire Claymore +10 to melee.
My highest stat is Faith at 42 to GLS. I might spice down some Sunlight Spear at some point need like 2 more medals to get it. But I like having an option for any occasion. I said it before but I think it's pretty cool how unspecialized you can be even in NG and do fine. It used to take NG+ at least in DS1 to start non specializing as it was just so much more effective to use a focused build in DS1.
Here are my stats:
Gonna work on Int to 30 ish
and VGR and End to 20 next
*Forgot to add you don't have to reroll unless you want to. You can respec using a soul vessel and talkign to the old lady at the table in things betwixt. I totally repeced this toon when I realized I liked the lightning/hex power with my sunbroness better than pure spell power. Started this toon as a mage. :) Edited, Jun 11th 2014 12:46pm by Shojindo
