    Ice, Wind, & Fire Mage Build - (Darks Souls 3).jpg

    Build Overview

    While this build has a lot going on and appears more like a crazy Dexterity character, the prime goal of this one is to use the Snap Freeze spell in conjunction with Friede's Great Scythe for frost build-up and the fire attacks of the Immolation Tinder (as well as using it as a sorcery catalyst) to remove the targets temporary resistance boost to this status ailment gained after being frostbitten. The Storm Curved Greatsword is merely there to apply pressure and possibly execute a quick, unexpected hit on fleeing foes.


    PVP Tips

    The greatest challenge when using this build is knowing when to use which weapon and how, as all three listed for this elemental DS3 mage build have unique and versatile movesets. The best thing to do is gauge what the opponent is up to before committing to any attack. For beefier warrior foes, stick to primarily applying frost, though, enemies that favor casting will need to be hunted down with the Storm Curved Greatsword if they insist on constantly fleeing.


    PVE Tips

    Resetting a target's frost resistance with fire damage is way more effective in PvE than it is in PvP against enemies that aren't resistant or immune to frost damage. This is due to the AI simply not knowing how to counter such a strategy besides its usual dodge or block methods. As such, this tactic can be used to cripple and hurt plenty of foes and bosses in the main game.
