    Weapon scaling and Stamina regen

    Post by drdrack on Sat Jul 13, 2013 8:25 am

    Two question

    Frist, when we all look at weapon scaling, it is usally given a grade letter. However, i don't know exactly how much scaling that weapon is given. While i can use mugen for comparison, is there certain weapon in the same rank that scales better? (or is this a at the end of the day, all shall be equal thing)

    Secondly, which has better stamina regen, MotM, clover ring, or Grass shield?

    Mask of the Child gives +10
    Grass Crest Shield gives +10
    Cloranthy Gives +20
    Green Blossom Gives +35

    Scaling has very high, high, very low, low, and normal value per letter. Most C/C scaling items have Low C strength, Medium C dexterity. You can not see which of these more accurate values it has.

    I have to admit the vague measurements around scaling is very annoying, this is something I hope they sort out in DkS2.

    The difference between scaling amounts of the same letters and same weapon types are pretty insignificant.  I believe that the difference in the over all attack power in that situation is due to base AR

    scaling depends on the base dmg a weapon does: a weapon with 300base and D scaling will outperform a weapon with 70base and S scaling, that's just how their math works. also the concept is reversed, the weapons are all balaced with their max. possible scaling as 1st priority, so the scaling letters don't amount to anything in the end. compare balder and silverknight sword for further enlightenment.

    Ditto above. Equip a weapon and check the damage output. Compare to another weapon with the same scaling letter and see what the damage output changes to. Also compare the color of the text. Blue is better, red is worse.

    When you get into the elemental weapons it may depend on the resistance of the foes to determine which weapon would be better to use. Hard to compare lightning weapon to fire or poison buffed weapons.
