Most of these staves have a "+15" next to their stat pictures, but they can't be upgraded, why?
The person who made it was talking out of their ***.
demon catalyst should allow me to use sorceries and pyromancies.
Maybe it would have if they had time to finish lost Izalith, heck maybe we’d even have some overlapping stuff like fire based spells and cool stuff like that
There should be something that casts everything
true
haha. why not also make it a best melee weapon too
That would be an interesting balance weapon with a unique style to. It could cast weaker variants of all spells as an alt or strong attack and the regular attack is a unique staff move set or bladed staff set. They could balance that. Not the best in either category but versatile enough to be worth investment.
The Izalith Catalyst should cast both Sorceries and Pyromancies, as it originates from a place renowned for Pyromancies, and is a tool used for casting Sorceries. And Sorceries and Pyromancies were not always 2 different schools of magic.
It doesn’t cast pyromancer because flame magic is sorcery that evolved into pyromacy losing th whole stick thing check out v a a t is video about izalith translation
Can anyone please tell me which is the best catalyst ?

it depends on your faith. some are better at low faith, some better at high. Have a look under "Magic Adjustment" (very last line on this wiki page)

*int not faith ... mb
The Oolacile Ivory Catalyst is the best until 27 intelligence, then it's the Sorcerer's Catalyst until 41 intelligence, after which point Logan's Catalyst is the best. Manus's Catalyst and the Tin Crystallization Catalyst are better than all of these at 23+ and 54+ intelligence respectively, but they halve the amount of times you can use a spell.
The Oolacile for low int Logan's best normal catalyst manus for dark magic (halves casts tho) Tin Crystallization for stardard magic (halves casts tho)
which catalysts can double as melee weapons?
none will do it effectively. there is a reason a second weapon slot exists
Manus cata, as a small great hammer/axe

Demons cata, a phy and fire damage short range poke

Tin cata, I believe it’s a long range poke but fairly low damage
manus catalyst go bonk
There's a quite a few of them that can be used as a weapon, but can't be used effectly.
Manus Catalyst is good as Greathammer with high Stager and Poise break rate. Tin Banishment Catalyst is good for a stager moment in low poise enemies, not realy good against Bosses tho. Tin Crystallization Catalyst is realy good for killing small and/or weak enemies, with very high damage output.
Demon's Catalyst is very good for killing, this one is capable of becoming a solo weapon choise, but not realy good as a catalyst, don't have a high Magic Ajustment, even with 99 Int it will have only 200 MagAdjust and the other more common Catalyst have 230+ MagAdjust.

Any recommended catalyst for an INT build? Currently using the Izalith one.
I'm here to help, good catalyst is very hard to obtain but here:
The Izalith one is good but not the best choise, if your build has around 40-50 intelligence, maybe you should use the Logan's Catalyst or the Tin Crystallization Catalyst.
But if your build is more a Dark Based Mage, maybe you should use a catalyst with a high Physical damage, like the Manus Catalyst or Tin Banishment Catalyst.
logan catalyst is a good one irongolem
It's very helpful indeed. Another one you can use as well: Tin Crystal. Catalyst with Crown of Dusk, Bellowing Dragoncrest ring, and Dusk Crown ring.
