      So how's this sound for a maximum-magic-destruction setup?
      1. Wear Crown of Dusk (+10% magic dmg)
      2. Equip young dragon, bellowing dragoncrest, and magic clutch ring (a whopping 47% magic dmg boost for all 3!!) In the 4th slot i would probably equip ROSP, lloyd's sword ring, or chloranthy.
      3. Hold Scholar's candlestick in your offhand for another 12.5% magic dmg if you are casting sorceries like CSS, but if you are gong for melee like me, just buff your weapon of choice with darkmoon blade (scholar's candlestick only affects your currently equipped catalyst's spellbuff, so you can't cast a buff like DMB and then switch to the candlestick for the damage boost).
      4. Watch your enemies' life bars melt away as you obliterate them a total magic dmg boost of 57%, or 69.5% (!!!) if you use the candlestick.

      I'll be trying this setup on my current character as soon as I have all the items (still need to farm concords for DMB). There aren't many enemies in this game that are weak to magic (I don't believe there is even a single boss who is weak to magic unfortunately), but i'm betting that the potential 70% boost will make magic more effective even against bosses like the dancer and abyss watchers, who are extremely weak to fire and lightning, respectively. To anyone who's already tried setups like this, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

        Edgy, dark and climate veils, hoods, crowns, diadems or great mage hats. Yet, you still have to wear this crap cause you cant live without maxed dmg... especially while in DkS3 magic is so underpowered.
        BTW it used to give a whole 25% bonus in DkS1, even while magic was good on its own.

            A true Dark Souls classic, this utter piece of crap makes you look like some hideous clown sulking in deepest corners of hell, yet you will wear it because it buffs your casting skill up to heavens. A moment of silence for Dark Souls2 pyromancer handcuffs.

                if you are like me you're probably here trying to figure out what items will help you be a boss sorcerer. well i'm going to save you the trouble. there are only two items that boost your damage (besides rings) 1 being the crown of dusk and the other being the scholars candlestick, dropped by the wax covered scholars in the grand items. it raises your damage by about 25%.

                    I will try to see if it affects DMB or not, if it does, this could make my build alot better.

                        It looks halfway decent if...04 May 2016 10:39  

               have some reflective armor on. I am currently wearing it with Fire Witch's Armor, Fire Witch's Gauntlets and Archdeacon Skirt. Makes you look like a sort of Sorcerer Prince. This way it doesn't make me wanna rip out my eyes every time I see it. It's still ugly, but it suits the rest of the armor.

                            The Crown of Dusk doesn't boost sorceries, but rather it boosts magic damage like the Magic Clutch Ring.

                              Doesn't work with Dark Magic? Tried testing it with Great Deep Soul and Deep Soul, with and without my dragon ring(s), with and without my Scholar's Candlestick offhanded, and never got the buff?
