Intelligence is a Stat in Dark Souls
Intelligence governs the Sorcery Power. It also controls the player's attack power for weapons that scale with Intelligence.
- Sorceries require a minimum intelligence 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.)
NOTE: This stat does NOT increase Pyromancy spells, Pyromancy Power only increases with the level of the Pyromancy Flame. Intelligence only increases the fire damage from punch attacks with the pyromancy glove.
- Some weapons (e.g. Velka's Rapier) require a minimum intelligence level to be wielded properly.
- If you do not meet the minimum intelligence required, you will stagger after every hit on an opponent.
