    Elemental Weapons in NG+ (or higher)?

    Post by Chumgeyser on Sat Mar 10, 2012 2:33 pm

    Is anyone using elemental weapons in NG+ and liking it? I've read nothing but contempt for elemental weapons in NG+ (or higher) and was hoping/wondering if anyone was having any success with them.

    I was thinking that you might get by using them effectively if you had a variety, like one of each fire/lighting/crystal, and you figured out the elemental weaknesses of the various enemies and bosses. Eh?

    Not that it really matters but crystal increases physical damage.

    So it's basically just Fire or lightning right? Chaos counts as fire correct?

    So does Crystal just scale normally but add damage? Where's the downside of Crystal then?

    Crystal weapons are fragile and break easily. They also add damage and scale normally. Not sure if you can buff them, though.

    You can. The most damaging critical hit vs. Gwyn I've found is a fully-upgraded crystal Rapier buffed with Sunlight Blade. I only use it vs. Gwyn, though, since Crystal weapons can't be repaired.

    It was just an experiment, I share most people's opinions regarding crystal weapons: They pretty much suck.
