I've been looking at the wiki to see which ones are the best, but I don't understand how the spell buffs, and stat scaling interact. My character would probably end up having 50 fth and int.

The best ones for dark magic are obvious, since they have scaling for both. And pyromancy only has one option

How far into the game are you? I usually play magic toons in DS games, but they seem to be s*** tier this go around. Just curious as you are one of the few people who seem to be playing an INT toon. Out of all the 100s of people I have seen on line this week I saw only 1 mage.

I just got out of ilythil jail and reached the capital. I'm a Jajack of all trades mage. I use sorcery, miracles, and pyromancy. I have yet to find any lightning miracles, and the sorceries were best for a while, but then pyromancy suddenly fit a lot more powerful. Pyromancy seems to be the most powerful so far. I can't help but hope that it's partially due to my catalyst though, because soul spear is doing almost 200 less than dark fire orb.

I use a Logan's catalyst with 50 int. It's not called Logan's catalyst in this game but it looks the same and has s scaling. My crystal soul spear does between 750-900 damage depending on distance rings equipped and enemy resistances. I also don't have the best rings yet so I can't wait to see how much it does when I do get them.

Is it actually the best one, or best you've found so far?

If you have 50 Int you should easily be able to acquire the ring you need in Blighttown 2.

The staff I'm seeing that's closest in appearance to Logan's staff is the court sorcerers staff. Is that the one you are referring to?

Is there a staff or charm that casts both spells and miracles?

There's a few weapons that can cast sorceries only, and a talisman which can cast pyro and miracles, but that's it.
