Magic and Faith Build and Best Weapons | Demon's Souls PS5

This is the guide to the Magic and Faith build for Demon's Souls for the PS5. Check here to find out what kind out of build Magic and Faith is, the stat alignment for the build, and our recommended weapons!

What is the Magic and Faith Build

A Magic and Faith specialist build

The Magic and Faith, as you could likely guess, is a build that specializes in both Magic and Faith stats. The strong point of this build is its ability to incorporate both spells and miracles into its attacks. Also, depending on how many points are put into Strength, some melee combat may also be possible.

★Invest into Magic and Faith

The Magic and Faith build stat aligntment will be a good balance of both Faith and Maigc. Depending on your Magic stat, this build may not be as destructive as the Pure Magic build with the Insanity Catalyst, but you have access to the various long-range spells but also the very convenient Second Chance miracle.

Using the Magic and Faith Build

Attack from a distance

While it is called the Magic and Faith build, most of your damage will be done with spells, so you will be attacking from a distance. Therefore, using the Magic and Faith build is not too different from the Pure Magic build.

Carry a sub-weapon

At the expense of some Magic points, you can invest in some points to carry around a weapon if melee becomes unavoidable.

Recommended Weapons for the Magic Faith Build

Make preparations to raise Magic power

As a Magic-based build, you will of course want to use weapons that scale with Magic. Kris Blade is an excellent weapon to pair with this build, but it can be truly complete with the addition of the rings and eqiupment below.

Large Sword of Moonlight

From Software's signature moonlight sword only scales with Faith. Its requirements are also only Faith. You can use this weapon without having to adjust any stats. Having this weapon as a backup will be a good idea.
