    Param Bonuses

    Post by Forty Seven on Sat Feb 25, 2012 9:42 am

    Hello, not sure if this is the place for this so i apologise if it isn't.

    Basically, i'd just like the Param Bonuses clearing up as they are a bit vague about it in all of the guides i'v read.

    Do the Param Bonuses stack? So for example, i'm using Astora's Straight Sword. 80 Physical, 80 Magic. ParamBonus C C - C.
    I have 20 Str, 20 Dex and 20 Faith. Do all of those stats add to the damage of this weapon?
    The only real reason i'm asking is because i was just looking through my other weapons. Gargoyle Tail Axe has Param Bonuses of D C - -, and due to my stats has +38 to physical. However, my Morning Star only has C - - -, yet still has a +38 to it's physical.
    It's got me thinking that maybe it only takes the highest Param, but that wouldn't explain why my sword has a bigger bonus when the highest is still only a C..

    Also, while i have your attention.. The Magic stat on weapons, does that boost your magic abilities, or does it do extra damage as magic damage when you hit with the weapon?

    Thanks in advance! happy

    Stat bonuses add damage rating to your weapons. The better the letter, the more added damage you get, from nothing to E to S. Some weapons have more than one parametre bonus, and some even have 3 or 4. Usually the bonus isn't really that much of a deal unless its a B, A, or S, or 2 Cs or above.

    Str and dex bonus adds to the physical damage, and faith and int to magic. Exceptions of chaos weapons scaling with your humanity, adding to the fire damage. The Dragonslayer Spear scales with str and dex for physical, and faith for lightning damage. One very special weapon, the Chaos Blade, made with Quelaag's soul, scales with dex and humanity, but both add to physical damage. One other rare case is Demon's spear, where it scales only with dex but adds to both physical and lightning damage.

    Note that the same letter (B or C) is just a range, so the C bonus from a straight sword may not be the same C bonus for a claymore. This should explain your gargoyle axe and morning star situation.

    Magic stat on weapons deal magic damage with normal attacks. That can be the r2 for some catalysts.
