45 Int is only worth it if using Logan's Catalyst. TCC's mag adj scaling is low compared to Logan's.

Yeah, this is a general guide for people to understand the basics. Once you understand the basic principles of how the stats work and how to maximize your damage, then you can make better "non-cookie cutter" builds.

As for the Int stat, that is going to be heavily based on your Catalyst. 44 is a cutoff simply because of the Crystal Soul Spear.

And, damn about the attunement. I'll go fix that.

That's actually exactly what I meant, players should aim for 45 int and use Logan's cat.

I just noticed, http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/ now has an armor selector tab as well. Not as good as the other Armor Selector I linked, but still nice to have in the same place.

If one needs a guide to making builds, one probably shouldn't be making a glass cannon. Just saying.

Just to affirm your efforts reim, this is almost exactly how I build. (sometimes in a slightly different order though)

for strength you could say 14-16 for dex builds too.
