      Does the power of Gravelord Sword and Greatsword Dance scale off of your rank in the Gravelord Servant Covenant only, or does it also scale off of a talisman's Magic Adjust?

          i wasnt sure if the move scaled with faith of intelligence, ( i read many rumors online that the damage had been changed in a patch at one point) , i still wanted to test and with just about 13-14 dex, i dealt about 274-288 damage( NG+) to a regular hollow in undead burg , with that one extra point in faith i verified multiple time and the damage increased from 293-308 , so i can confirm that both spells( regular and greater sword dance) does scale with faith and not intelligence as some source online claimed.
