      Lightning stake, lightning arrow and lightning storm are the offensive lightning miracles that are worth your time. Dont bother with lightning spears, they try to get 2 jobs done at once (ranged and melee) and they suck at both.

        sorry for the silly question but im going for the achievement to collect all miracles. i accidently used aldrich's boss soul for the darkmoon longbow and not the lifehunt scythe miracle. do you need to own all the miracles on ONE playthrough or can it be across multiple game saves? do i need to wait untill another newgame + to try for the achievement again? thanks in advance

              I wish miracles cost less FP for their effect/damage. They are good, but FP efficiency is the name of the game for PvE when FP recovery is limited to Ashen Estus. Hidden Blessings are limited and Simple infusion takes forever. Stamina costs severely limit spam already, so why not?

                You have to beat the game to get decent faith projectiles. Sunlight spear required you kill the final boss, and lightning arrow requires the ringed city. ***** you, Miyazaki

                  Some of you clerics just love to *chime* in with your spells... Tho, guess what? Some of us are *unfaltering* as we use our talismans, and shall not staggered by mere words! .... I've no regrets from making this comment.

                    Done some field testing on the little poison spewing mobs in Earthen Peak to get total % increase from buffs. Test with 60 faith, starter talisman +8, lightning arrow. Left number is total damage done, right number is % increase compared to 0 rings and 0 buffs: No rings, no buffs: 261 First Born ring: 325 (19.7%) First Born + Morne: 376 (30.6%) 2 rings + Rose WA: 474 (45%) 2 rings + SSS WA: 419 (37.7%) First Born + Rose and SSS WA: 457 (43%) 2 rings + Rose and SSS WA: 528 (50.6%) Done the same test with Melee range Sunlight spear and the % ratios were the same within 0.9% margin of error (0 buffs and 0 rings: 478; 2 rings and 2 buffs: 962, a 50.3% increase) I didn't test banner, since it needs to be held for its buff to work and I'm not using it as my primary weapon.

                      Why is crown of dusk on the list of buffing items? I tested it with wowc and lightning spear and it didn't increase the damage. So unless I'm an idiot don't use it i gues.

                        Contrary to popular belief I think miracle builds are way better at PVP than any other school of magic. Because of one property they have which is poisecasting. Sure you can just spam pers to use CBV/ CSS but that makes me vomit.

                          Lothric Warbanner should be added to the list of miracle boosting items. The 15% damage buff applies to spells.

                              60-70 fth depending on your build, 30-40 atn depending on your build, always 40 vgr, 45 dex if your build allows, Yorshka's chime for ranged casts and weapon buffing with elemental spells, The regular Talisman for poise casting (so you dont get interrupted during a cast, best for close combat offence spells and healing as heals take time and stamina and close combat gets you interrupted) during ordinary pvp, Canvas Talisman or Sunlight Talisman (Sunlight as a last resort as the damage suffers) against ganks of 3 or more people. The best spells you'll want are Lightning Storm as your aoe, Bountiful Light for self regen, Projected Heal for Healing, Lightning Arrow for ranged cast, Lightning Stake for close combat and Sunlight Spear as an additional close combat option, but don't sacrifice Lightning Stake for it as Lightning Stake is easier to land. Any weapon will work Lightning infused at 60+ fth, blessed infusion is viable at 60+ fth too and comes with hp regen based on your weapon upgrade level. Rings are dependant on your build, common ones on faith builds are Morne's Ring, Ring of the Sun's Firstborn, Sage ring, Lightning Clutch Ring (very situational as it lowers absorption for very minimal damage increase in pvp, in pve you get the full effect so it works wonders while still taking your defence down a lot) and the Prisoner's Chain/Ring of Favor are a staple for all builds.
