    Upgrading Weapons

    Post by Marla3282 on Mon Jun 25, 2012 11:43 pm

    I just started playing Dark Souls (on Xbox 360) about a month ago and I am TOTALLY addicted to this game!!!!! I am in my first play-through and just entered New Londo Ruins. I have read through some posts and dome some searches online, but I do not understand how to upgrade my weapons. I can get them to +5 and then they disappear from my available upgrade list, even though I have large titanite. I wanted to make the Kellogg sword and can't. Please help. Thanks!

    Do you havre the large ember? If you do give it to andre then select "modify weapon" off his list. You'll see it and be able to upgrade it. once thats done you can upgrade it normally again.

    Welcome to the forums!

    The Large Ember is in the Depths by the way. Have you explored the Depths already?

    Haha i was in the same boat the first time i played the game.
    But you need the large ember to get the weapons to +6, and the Very large ember to get them to +11.

    As for the boss weapons you need to be able to get to the giant smith in Anor Londo. He is the only one who can forge them.

    Ha, the Kellogg Sword. Oh, I love unusual words, they are always fun to see misspelled (not mocking you).

    I have been to The Depths and I gave the large ember to Andrei. I haven't found the very large ember yet, where is that? I was able to upgrade my Knight Shield to +10 but my other weapons get to +5 and then disappear from the list when I'm in upgrade mode. Do I understand correctly - I need the very large ember to go past +5? Thanks for your help. (am I the only one who plays this game every single day???)

    Are you MODIFYING your weapons instead of upgrading them?

    No, I can't get past +5 when I go to Reinforce Weapon. I know modify means to turn it into a Magic or Divine, etc. weapon.

    Yes, but you need to modify your weapons to +6 anyway.

    Yep. Then once they're +6 you have to go back to reinforce.

    Thank you!!!!!!!!!!

    What are your thoughts on RAW weapons? Because I didn't understand the upgrade system I turned my Halberd to Raw +5. I really like it but I wonder if RAW is a good option.

    Never go raw! Never. Its a trap. Raw is the worst option.

    I noticed that you can't go any further than Raw +5. Okay, thanks!
