Using the Magic Warrior Build

Buff and incorporate magic attacks

The Magic Warrior will make use of buffs to add magic damage to their regular attacks. First buff weapons with the Enchant Weapon spell. After defeating the Penetrator, take its Demon Soul to Sage Freke to acquire Light Weapon. This will allow you to buff your weapons with even stronger magic.

You can also use longe-range magic depending on your stats

The Magic Warrior typically uses buffs, but the option to use long-range magic is also convenient. The Magic Warrior should have no problem with its base stat alignment, but it could be difficult if running a Faith Swordsman build.

Recommended Weapons for the Magic Warrior Build

Ordinary Weapons

We recommend ordinary weapons for the Magic Warrior build. Depending on some situations, Crushing weapons or Sharp weapons may also be used, but since there is no stat specialty for those categories, ordinary weapons are not a problem.

Do not use Crescent weapons

Crescent weapons cannot be buffed with Light Weapon. Therefore, you cannot achieve the main purpose of this build, which is to add magic damage by using buffs.

Blessed weapons

If running a Faith Swordsman build, Blessed weapons are going to be the most suitable. Buffs like Light Weapon will not be as strong as the Magic Warrior, but you can specialize in using Second Chance. Also, your group will be mostly the same as the Muscle-head.

Blessed Weapons List

Mild Hammer Iron Knuckles Halberd
Mace Great Axe Crescent Axe
Guillotine Axe Battle Axe Great Sword
Claymore Bastard Sword Northern Regalia
Long Sword Short Sword Morning Star

Large Sword of Moonlight

If running the Faith Swordsmen build, you can also carry the Large Sword of Moonlight. It has an excellent scaling in Faith and the only stat requirement is Faith. Also, it cannot be blocked by shields, making it a good weapon to carry as insurance.
