Magic Weapon is a Sorcery in Dark Souls. To cast a sorcery, you must use a Catalyst or Special Weapons that can cast Sorceries


Sorcery for casters who wield swords. Magic augmentation: right weapon.
The power of the magic swordsmen of Vinheim is predicated upon this and Magic Shield. Many warriors learn sorcery just for this.

      So recently trying to do a ceastus only run and I’ve witnessed something interesting. I got a +5 fire ceastus to fight O&S because Ornstein is weak to fire, but I did some testing and found out I deal more damage with a +10 standard ceastus and magic weapon, I don’t even have that many levels invested in any of the scaling stats and I’m using ollacile ivory catalyst, I’m intrigued as to how the damage is calculated between ascension and buffs cause by all right the fire ceastus should deal similar damage to the buffed standard ceastus

        At 10 INT with a Sorcerers Catalyst you apply 87 damage to your main hand weapon, surpassing Charcoal Pine Resin.

        Similar for players who used to grab Carthus Rogue on Dark Souls III who want that extra buff with minimal stat investment.
