What's up with raw weapons?

What makes them different from the base upgrade path?

They do more damage when your character is at lower levels.

Decreased scaling but higher gains in AR per upgrade. It doesn't go to +10 though so it only makes sense to use at lower levels before you have access to elemental weapons.

I'm doing a faith build and I want a blade to buff, my DEX and STR are both at 16, so is Raw +5 or Regular +10 better for my case?

Normal +15 will beat Raw +5. You'll need a calculator to figure out if Raw +5 is better than Normal +10

Okay thanks. I'll go with the regular route.

If you're at the beginning of the game, it might be better to go raw than normal. You can always roll it back to standard +5 when you reach the other blacksmiths or get the Very Large Ember.
