Ng+3 Blue Knight before Tower Knight Boss
30 strength, 26 dexterity, 25 magic, Penetrator sword +5, magic power 2,400 and beast talisman
one handed R1 = 43 (slash)
one handed R2 = 185 (pierce)
one handed R1 = 114 (slash)
one handed R2 = 256 (pierce)
pretty hefty buff considering my stats are all over the place. if the enemy is weak to magic this will certainly put in some work
So I tested this with a +10 Falchion vs my +5 Crescent Falchion. My mage has 55 MAG, 10 STR, 12 DEX and the +10 Falchion with Light Weapon casted from a Beast Talisman gave me 411 total attack power: 170+34 physical, and 207 magic. The +5 Crescent Falchion gives me 361 total attack power: 112+0 physical and 119+131 magic. Yielding both 2h and attacking the Fat Official in the Tunnel City (no NG) I did 301 dmg with the +10 Falchion/Light Weapon vs 286 dmg with the +5 Crescent Falchion.
Using a higher damage physical weapon and/or having a higher magic rating would only further boost those numbers. If you're trying to maximize single swing damage, dump some points into STR/DEX to use a higher damaging weapon and buff it with light weapon.
As a bonus, this spell gives off a decent glow effect lighting up the environment better than the Moonlight Sword.
I tested against fatty located before endboss and It seems it is MagAdjust * 1.18 or 1.24 depending of movest.
I found later that wikidot mentioned MagAdjust * 1.3 so this is more or less what you can expect.
At 30 Magic, I have 153 MagAdjust with wooden catalyst and deal ~182/190 bonus damage.
Quite good as my weapon damage is 118/185
is there any way to increase the duration of the spell?
What would be the ideal amount of mag for this spell for a dex build/ when it would be better to put points into other stats?
"Greatly strengthens right-hand weapon. (Used with catalyst equipped in left hand.). A catalyst should be equipped to cast this spell." At all times? Or, just for casting, and then you can take the shield?
Will this spell work if I will two-hand the weapon after casting the spell?
Why does the dark souls wiki have the math on the buff spells but not here??
Will this spell work if I will upgrade my weapon to Crescent? "only works on enchantable weapons" - what exactly "enchantable" means in this context, enchantable as "non-boss-soul" weapon, or, not at all upgraded, or, enchantable by default and does not matter in it is upgraded?
Is the bonus flat or scaling?
