I am getting the hang of this game and keep going, but my drake sword isn't cutting it any more, its too weak, and upgrading it is really expensive plus it doesn't get much stronger. i am aiming to be a sorcerer and would like to know a good weapon to get and eventually upgrade to magic and maybe enchant. Also, where do I get the enchanted or magic ember or whatever is needed to make a magic weapon?
Several weapons scale to an A with magic. An Enchanted Great Scythe, enchanted club and great club, enchanted murakumo, and a few others. If you don't want to worry about blacksmithing, the sword you get for cutting Seath's rear tail has a scaling of A as well.
