  3. Pure Dex: Weapons better at +15 or elemental?
3 years ago#1
I want to make a new dex character, and I'm just curious what gets more damage output with a dexterity of 45 for the better katanas and scythes and whatnot.

Does going +15 get better damage?
Or is elemental still more powerful?

I've heard elemental damage got nerfed a tad and want to confirm what's better before I set off and make a new character.

I think Lightning gets a slightly higher AR, but the split damage makes it worse.

+15 absolutely.

Elemental is only for when you don't invest much in offensive stats.

My advice to you. dont put a f***ing single point in dexterity more than you have to if you want to go elemental XD, that being said if you are set on 45 dex. then in no way would you ever go elemental it got nerfed greatly, but even prepatch, if you're going a dex build, you get an item that scales with dex. 'nuff said.

The only reason people use elemental weapons is because they are stupidly strong, and you dont need any stats for scaling.

Thanks, just wanted to confirm, haven't played the game for quite some time.

I forgot to mention I won't be using any buffing sorcery or miracles on my weapons, but that seems irrelevant since with A scaling +15 weapons will do more damage than elemental ones.

Alright, now to calibrate a few more stats and start my new character!

It only got nerfed like 10%. At 45 Dex a +15 weapon is always better.

Also I guess it's not "pure" dex as I want to throw fire around, and the 45 DEX mark is for the fastest fire tossing speed.

DMB or SLB could help.

I said I'm not buffing.
Can't afford it as I want to cap at LVL125, and also I already have a faith character for enchanting stuff.
