      If anyone is doing a caster build and having trouble deciding between +5ing the Phosphorescent Pole or the Kris Blade on their first run, like I was, I reccommend upgrading the pole. The spell damage difference between Kris and Kris+5 isn't all that major, however the regen for the pole changes pretty dramatically. The pole also functions better as a melee weapon than the Kris Blade, but honestly they both are best as offhand. For your main weapon, get a Crescent Kilij. I run Pole + Kris in offhand, Crescent Kilij + Talisman of Beasts in main hand.

      The difference between which you upgrade is relatively minor, but I promise you that you'll feel more of the pole's upgrade passive than kris'. While it's true that MP regen items are cheap and plentiful, it's a bit of a hassle to constantly use them, and also takes valuable time mid-combat. The pole helps reduce this, and at/near max upgrade for Pole + Crescent Kilij, you'll recover the MP spent on Warding before it expires, making your melee capabilities not nearly as subject to attrition, and your build better in PvP as a result (which is where mages typically suffer most anyways).

        I don't think this stacks with other items.
        I was using the Monk's Head Wrappings and Ring of Magical Sharpness which both raise Magic damage.

        When holding the weapon in either hand I was doing the same Magic damage as I was without having it equipped.

        I can see damage difference when unequipping the wrappings or ring though.

          There’s a hidden mechanic with this I’ve found. It doesn’t work on every enemy, but when farming souls in Monolith Forest if you have kris blade equipped you get another bonus 20% souls if your spell one shots the Mantas. I haven’t been able to find any other enemies this works on yet so far, but if you want to farm souls even faster, use kris blade and use a spell strong enough one shot the manta and you’ll get even more souls per kill.

            I'm not completely sure but I believe this and other magic amplifying items increases the damage of the magic orbs that are automatically casted during an Old Monk invasion.
