    Occult Weapon Scaling

    Post by DFogify on Sun Mar 11, 2012 12:32 am

    Does anyone know if is worth it to have 40 dex and 40 faith for a occult weapons or is it better to split it like 30 dex and 50 faith. FYI I am using a shotel and baldur side sword.

    eh, it doesn't matter. An occult gets better by a good amoutn of faith, and it usually stops growing in terms of damage VIA 50. However, even if the occult weapon has an A scaling compared to an A scaling of a strength only weapon (A Faith on a weapon, A Strength on another), it seems that the Faith increases by a good chunk (3) more than the strength (1, usually) in terms of damage. So putting a good amount of faith in your weapon would do more damage... magic wise.

    And as many enemies are more resistant to magic than others, you should try to make it about 40/40. Higher if you can for both, but the balance helps. As faith only increases the magic proportion, it can be said that you also want the physical at times.

    Also, sorry for the second post, that Occult weapons do bonus damage to certain enemies. Enemies such as the Silver Knights and those who you invade are said to take such bonus damage. Keep that as a reminder that sometimes it is good to have both a divine and occult weapon in case of different circumstances.

    If you have 40 dex, the standard path might do a lot better at high SLs. Going thru 2 types of defense sort of makes elemental paths less useful, apart from lgihting/chaos where no stat scaling matters, alowing you to dump stats on vit.

    Well I guess I am just going to meet minimum requirements for the shotel and washing pole and then pump faith to 50 and the rest goes to vitality and endurance. Should give me 50 vit and 40 end.

    The zweihander will hit close to 480 damage(half of that being magic damage) and scale D in STR, E in DEX, and C in FAITH. While the washing pole hits around 430 but it has a B in FAITH, so the scaling is btter faith wise. However, it is more of a matter of personal preference, some like strength based weapons and others like dexterity. I for one like dex better for its speed.
