A question about weapon scaling...

#1NightmareGammaPosted 8/25/2013 2:47:21 PM
Someone told me that a weapon only scale with a stat until the stat reaches 40.

Is that true? I can't find a definite answer just now... I'M doing a dex build, and put nearly all points just in Dex, Endurance and Vitality.

Is putting more than 40 into a stat waste of Level up points?

40 is the limit for normal upgrades.
Magic scaling paths top off at 50.

P.s.
I meant only normal weapons that are upgraded using a magic upgrade path.
A weapon like Velkas rapier which naturally scales of Int stops at 40 also.

a thank you =)

That means weapons like a Katana that or Queelags Fury sword, that scale with dex, will cap at 40?

Then I wasted some points actually...

thanks for answering =)

no, damage increases to 99 only past 40 the returns will start decreasing per stat increase

40 is good stop point, 50 is still good. thou it will be wasted to some extent.
(like enemies will still take 3 hits, at 40 or 50 in stat with same weapon.)

You can go to 99, but anything past 50 is very minor.
And like above, you'll still need same amount of hit to kill something, despite doing more damage.
(most of the time same hits)

thanks to both of you =) I Like that dark souls let you explore anything all by yourself, but they at least could explain the scaling a bit better, how much the strenght increases etc.

Again, thank you =)
