      who tf thought it was a good idea to make so you can only use the Lightning Spear as a faith build until the end of the game ( or waste hours of your day farming sunlight medals)?

        emit force is kind of a fire miracle, it seems to guard-break shielding enemies no matter what, no matter the size. ive been able to guard break gargoyles holding their wings up with a single emit force. thanks onion man

          Hey idk if this is a common issue but I got all the miracles, I tripled checked and everything, but I never got the trophy. Anyone know what I can do to fix this?

          • Anonymous

            miracles arent actually that bad, the issue is that the only offensive miracles worth using are sunlight spear and lightning storm, which means you basically have to beat the entire game first before you get these. plus you need to get to anor londo to get yorshkas chime. but once you do and once you have beaten friede to get ariandels rose, then miracles become the best spell type for the entire ringed city dlc, everything is weak to lightning there, especially midir. also they remain the best for all the ng+ cycles one might do.

              What if you wanted to make a pure Faith build, but FROMSOFTWARE said "This tale describes the lost practices of ancient dragonslayers, who found that in order to pierce dragonscale, lightning should not be hurled as a bolt, but rather be thrust as a stake directly into the dragon's hide, to be truly effective.", and "Lightning Arrow is after fighting the dragon after the Shared Grave bonfire"

                locking spells behind so much multiplayer interaction in a game that is eventually going to die (as it did) and now you cant get any multiplayer games as a blue so getting darkmoon blade is basically impossible. incredible decisions, miyazaki. shouldve just gone back and put the spell in a chest now that nobody plays this anymore and the only ones who still do are old veterans skilled enough to not need a blue summon.

                • Its a shame that blessed Weapon is so late in the game. And that there is no cheap offensive miracle to use against Low level enemies.

                  Wouldve been cool to have some more simple spells like "High defense and poise" or "High defense and healing over time". My Paladin Build wouldve liked that.

                    i wore mornes ring for the entire first half of my miracle run before I realized it only increased damage. I didnt have damage spells. this game is fcking great to me

                      There's a total of 38 Miracles. 23 support miracles,15 offensive miracles. Miracles are still centered around support, but there's a bigger amount of offensive miracles, which is welcome. I like how there's a bigger variety of miracles in this game, dark miralces are pretty good!

                        Damn it sure takes a decent amount of time to get decent offensive miracles. I am using pyromancies in the mean time to tide me over.

                            Yes but have you tried buffing with sacred oath, deep protection, power within, and crystal sword on a lothric greatsword? *laughs in 1100 damage* Trifecta mages are where its at in this game.

                                use lightning arrow with a good poise catalyst
                                then you wait for PVPer to get close and shoot
                                and then spam r1

                                  A shame there's no ring that increases the amount healed by miracles, only rings that increase lightning, blessed, & dark damage, and a ring that sort of works, but not at higher levels (priestess ring)

                                    The crown of dusk is mentioned here but It does not boost miracle damage, I tested it and it only boosts magic damage on offensive spells

                                      Crap if you intend to use casting as your primary form of damage, and healing is mostly crap outside of co-op, but having a melee buff of every element is nothing to sneeze at.

                                        Miracle heals are legit in pvp because they’re part of the build and can be punished severely. Players who get salty about it making it out to be on par with estus healing make me want to die irl.

                                          Do i need to have all miracles on one character or is it enough to have all of them across different characters?

                                            Are you kidding me? The Lloyd's sword ring boosts attack when hp is full, why the **** does it says it boosts miracle damage?

                                              The achievement to get all the miracles is the biggest pain in the ass compared to pyromancy and sorcery. 10 Dregs isn't too bad and going mad spirit can be kinda fun (even if 30 bone shackles can make me wanna become a bone pile) but **** me, I have to beat 2 the hardest bosses of the base game *and* do 2 covenants to max rank? The things I do for a virtual badge...

                                                  Miracles are the magic of an attritionist. If you can master tanking and trading with your opponent, you will dominate the field. Or you could just learn how to roll catch with lightning arrow.

                                                    There is a divine tome missing here. It's called "divine tome of lordran" and tells you how much better miracles were in ds1.

                                                      Honestly I think Miracles in this game are pretty great. From a support perspective at least, I made a holy priest to support my boyfriend through his first ever playthrough of all three games and Dark Souls 3 was one of the smoothest. I think the only downfall of Miracles in DS3 is that you don't really get any good ones until the Catacombs of Carthus, and you ride on Lightning Stake & Great Heal for some time. Though once you get both of the sunlight spells, and stuff like caressing tears & lightning storm, it's fantastic for zoning enemies and keeping any summons you have in the fight.

                                                      It's definitely not as high damage as Sorcery, or as staggering as Pyromancies, but considering the poise bonus you get when using Talismans it really can pack a punch and provide some unavoidable damage to people who get too aggressive in fights.

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.

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.

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.

If anyone is willing to trade some id be very thankfull. Although im in NG+++ and i dont know if that'll effect it in any way. But if you are willing to give some spare ones, my steam name is Doctor MB

                                                                                    • Miracles are good in PVP, you just have to know how to use them. Use Unfaltering Prayer with the Canvas Talisman to poise cast. Lightning Arrow can be held indefinitely and if you're good, you can roll catch people with it. Lighting Storm has a wide AOE and can deal 500+ damage with momentary stuns. Lighting Stake is spammable and can hit for 700+ damage apiece, and can pop Tears of Denial. I two shot UGS users and R1 spammers that try to out trade me. Finally, Lightning Spear at point blank can deal 900+ to players, and at least 500+ when thrown at a range. Those are only the offensive Miracles, Miracles are known mostly for their utility. You have Tears of Denial which can save you from being parry spammed to death or from a mistake on your end, and you have access to a variety of healing spells that can be extremely useful in invasions. Down on health? Runaway and pop a Great Heal to fully restore your health and conserve your Estus in the process. Also, healing Miracles can be used in the Arena against passive opponents and Arena runners. Sure, it lacks the raw power of Sorceries and Pyromancies, but it has utility. If you think Miracles suck, you're doing it wrong.

                                                                                              It seems to me dark miracles are kind of funky. Come to think of it, dark sorceries are a bit funky too. The devs probably should've just grouped them together into a hex class of some sort with its own type of catalyst. I understand that dark, by its very nature is not intended to work efficiently, but stacking faith only for Dark Blade and having to stack intellect as well for dark infused weapons and other spells feels like a waste of stat investments. As much as DS2 kinda bugged me, they got hexes pretty much right on the money.

                                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                                  Example: Does a chime with 106 spell buff gives more hp restore than a chime with 100?

                                                                                                  • People love to hammer on Miracles but the potential is so high. Sunlight Spear can 1HKO players often, then there's Force which when combined with Unfaltering Prayer can throw players/enemies off cliffs resulting in easy wins. Vow of Silence has high utility, and the heals are awesome when co-oping. Lightning Arrow is a very good spell as well.

                                                                                                    • Hi guys... I want to earn trophy for miracles but i dont have all because i screw up with some npc.. Can i get the rest in ng+ and then to earn the trophy?

                                                                                                          After fighting Yhorm with all damage boosting items (although, not with optimal stats), I rate miracles 11000/10, would Sunlight Spear again.

                                                                                                          But Way of White Corona with the same setup hitting regular enemies (specifically, the ones outside of the Cleansing Chapel) for 263 is ridiculously stupid.
