    Maybe; but it might just make certain things never used. In Dark Souls, there's some weapons that only get used for the laughs; same with shields. They really don't hav ea good place in the game.

    I also wish there was a difficulty setting (allowing you to start on NG+). That way, coop would be more difficult/dangerous.

    I think my suggestion would improve that rather than reinforce it. There's no reason any weapon can't be made useful in some way or another with free upgrade options, especially with a bound spell. Daggers aren't often used in PvP apart from parry spammers and backstab fishers, but what if it had a spell that was unleashed with its heavy attack? So immediately, a dagger is a good way to get a fast casting of a bound spell. And knowing that it won't do much damage, perhaps you upgrade its bleeding effect a few times, plus increase its critical damage.

    So now? What was once a pretty worthless dagger unleashes a spell, causes bleeding easily and enjoys massive criticals, paying for that with unimpressive base damage and basic scaling. It might not be the most efficient choice for dealing raw damage, but it now has multiple applications via the free build system.

    Not that I can't see how it might be abused, mind. It would obviously have to be carefully balanced, but a certain amount of balance would be inherent if existing weapons are the templates.
