Miracles are a school of magic that deal lightning elemental damage through its offensive spells. Most miracle spells are self-buffs which augments the user's effectiveness in battle. The catalysts for casting miracles are called chimes. Lightning damage increases with the Faith stat. The soft cap for lightning damage is 40 Faith.

      Fucc FROM! Why would they reduce the number of uses at all? It already had less casts than sorcery and sorcery does too high damage in comparison. Light ing spear is weaker than great heavy soul arrow, they have similar cast time, but here’s the kicker, you get more than triple the casts for great heavy soul arrow which again does more damage. More enemies are weak or neutral to magic because most enemies where light or heavy armour often lacking in magic defense. Did I mention sorcery has lower requirements and often has faster cast times and in some cases 10 times the number of casts? It’s ridiculous. Let’s say great soul arrow does half the damage as lightning spear and lightning spear does 200 damage. That means great soul arrow does 100 damage. Even though it does half the damage it has 5x the casts so lightning spear only adds up to 600 damage while great soul arrow does 1500 damage assuming every hit lands. What’s more ridiculous is that I rounded lightning spear’s damage up while rounding great soul arrows damage down. Against a heide knight who was weaker to lightning than magic lightning spear only did 198 damage while just an ordinary soul arrow did 120 something damage. Even more ridiculous is the fact that I had double my faith than intelligence(22 fth 10-11 intelligence at the time). Another thing, soul arrow has the same range as lightning spear in my experience but soul arrow has mild damage reduction when shooting from afar while lightning soear loses more than 50% of damage from the same range. It’s beyond ridiculous and they decided to nerf miracles?! If they should nerf anything it’s sorceries. Sorry about the rant but my favorite part any ds game is magic, espescially miracles but it’s been so unbalanced simce day one. They fixed the cast problem in ds3 but sorcery is still superior in damage and cost but it’s less effective against enemies than lightning now and they have more equal requirements making it a lot better than it used to be.

        So I'm kind of confused about Resplendent Life and Bountiful sunlight. Is Resplendent Life supposed to heal at a faster rate but with the disadvantage of it being that it's only a SELF buff?

            to the anonymous that thinks faith builds are trash .Maybe in PvP think faith is still very much viable especially in Pve . Just needs some different abilities . heavenly thunder is still a great aoe . as is soul appease. . and dont forget that healing spells imo . are better healing than estus , and for pvp you can use fast weapons and buff it good :D
