And just a question for understanding matters since I wouldn't consider myself a Vet even though I played everything but demon souls. What do you mean by lightning initial damage? And, isn't 30 faith a bit low since the buff scales with ur faith lvl doesn't it?
Don't blame me for dumb questions - I just don't know it better :D
It's more you get some good miracles at 30 faith. If you don't want to go all the way up to 30, you can go up to 15 for Blessed Weapon, Tears of Denial, Caressing Tears (Situational status heal, but it's nice to have), Magic Barrier and Med Heal. However going up to 30 faith gets you Sacred Oath, Dark Blade, Lightning Blade, Darkmoon Blade, Great Magic Barrier, Dorthy's Gnawing, and Great Heal. While more Faith will boost your buffs more, just having the bare minimums will do far more than just Resins.

You know a good point to farm it?
If Greirat survives pillaging Irithyll, you can buy them off him. If not, I like to farm the Lothric Knights guarding Oceiros (usually after killing the boss and using the bonfire the boss spawns).

Ehh.... With the Lothric Knight Greatsword in particular, you want lightning damage specifically, due to its natural lightning damage. You can if you want to buff things other than the LKG, but do realize that Darkmoon Blade is probably the most annoying thing to farm for in the entire game IMO. I've heard horror stories of people spending 8+ hours farming to get the Proofs of Concords

Sure? Depends on the situation and how much you want to rely on the buff. In higher NG+ cycles you can get improved versions of the ring. Personally I use it on some of my buff builds during longer boss fights.

Sellswords are faster and have a more fluid moveset. In a buff build, the higher number of attacks per second will lead to far more overall damage. Gotthard has more reach tho. In PvP I'd say Gotthard's reach is better in formal duels, but the Sellswords with a strong buff have a crazy combo that is almost guarenteed to insta-kill a phantom. In PvE, Sellswords are just faster at killing things, so they get my vote.
