Balder side sword at 45 dex +15 or +5 chaos?

Picu, you're really misinformed. It's not because of the buffable nature of +15 that makes them superior to Elemental weapons, it's the fact that they don't have split damage. Split damage causes the weapon to go through two defenses when attacking, thus lowering the damage of your weapons. AR is meaningless here.

. If you don't plan to use buff, then leave weapon requirement at base & make those chaos.


Wow, this is probably the worst advice you could give someone. You actulay told someone that if they dont plan on using a weapon buff that a +15 is not worth it and use a damn chaos weapon instead. LOL

That's why I said, if he want to make a chaos +5 leave the requirement at base, so he can use those points in other stats. But if he wanted +15 then go all the way to 45 dex. Why waste point in dex if you want a chaos weapon? I'm not saying what's better than who? For my personal prefference I'd go +15 cause I can buff it & do more dmg than a chaos +5. I tried uchi +15 & chaos +5 uchi against darkwraith & the dmg between both wasn't that great, chaos dealing more dmg. I only remember bs, +15 does 606 at 45 dex & chaos +5 656.

If your dex is already 45, use the +15 and buff it with at least gold pine if not DMB SLB or CMW. If your stats are low, go with chaos.. Its that simple, all these pissy people here are ridiculous.

Gamefaqs: 90% of all arguments stem from simple misrepresentation of facts and misunderstanding.
The other ten is anything else.

Backstabs aren't a good indicator of weapon power, as as they have that little odd LOLWHATDEFENCE modifier.

97 with the chaos.

172 with regular.

If you want video evidence.
