Faith is a Stat in Dark Souls
Faith governs the Miracle Power and also increases the Magic Defense. It also controls the player's attack power for weapons that scale with Faith.
- Miracles require a minimum faith level to cast. (You can acquire without the required stats and even attune the spell, but attempting to cast will leave your character scratching their head, literally.)
- Some weapons (e.g. Astora's Straight Sword) require a minimum faith level to be wielded properly.
- If you do not meet the minimum faith required, you will stagger after every hit on an opponent.
