The safest way will always be to go through Drupal and use the node  
save functions (through a custom script, feedapi, etc.) because any  
related data will also be updated.  Otherwise, modules will miss the  
opportunity to hook in.

However, your integer field is probably safe to change directly in the  
database if you don't want to spend a lot of time on it.
