  • Talismans generally scale with Faith, and therefore this can lead to stronger miracles
  • Lack of Faith to wield a weapon or shield (as shown with the red X on the D-pad menu) doesn't make the character have a different animation like Strength does, but the weapon still gets the damage penalty and bouncing attacks
  • Magic Defense can not be properly determined by Faith alone, as it is also affected by the current level of stats + humanity
  • Magic Defense and Fire Defense follow identical equations, but Fire-Def scales with Resistance stat
  • In addition to the equipment listed above, equipment in Divine and Occult upgrade paths also have Faith scaling for Magic damage
