Question from Fullthrtl86

Asked: 3 years ago

How do you turn a normal weapon into a elemental weapon?

is it only a certain blacksmith that can do this or do I need to find a certain ember? and what level does the weapon have to be to roll over to elemental. I heard the zweihander sword with lightning is pretty good.

Normally you would need to upgrade a weapon to +5 and modify it to elemental weapon. But u need to give them embers(which u will find later). There are 4 blacksmiths with their own unique skills.

Elemental weapon (lightning) is made from a +10 weapon by the blacksmith in Anor Londo no ember required

Elemental weapon (fire) is made by the blacksmith in tomb of the giants, I don't have more specifics on those.

All blacksmiths can do this. If you find an ember and give them to their respective blacksmiths, you will get more elemental options to choose from.

Blacksmith Andrei upgrades +5 weapons into Divine weapons if you find the Divine ember, and then upgrades your Divine weapons to +10 if you find the Large Divine ember. If you find the Dark ember from the Painted World of Ariamis, he can ugrade +5 divine weapons into Occult weapons. He can also upgrade normal weapons to +10 if you find the Large ember in the depths, and then he can upgrade them into +15 if you find the Very Large Ember in New Londo Ruins. He is found below a staircase of a bonfire that leads to Sen's Fortress. You can tell if it's him if you hear a loud clinking sound.

The Giant Blacksmith upgrades 10+ weapons into Lightning weapons. If you get the crystal ember from Duke's Archives, he can upgrade normal weapons into crystal weapons. I highly recommend you don't choose that upgrade path though, because it lowers your weapon's durability to a very low amount and can't be repaired.

Blacksmith Vamos upgrades +5 weapons into Fire weapons which can be upgraded to +10 if you get the Large Flame Ember from Demon's Ruins. He can be found in the bottom of the catacombs, if you go down a staircase until you reach a broken dead end. You can then jump to a ledge, and then the other, and then reach the bottom. He will be at the end of the corridor.

Blacksmith Rickerts upgrades +5 (or +10? Don't remember, as I never actually used this blacksmith) weapons in to magic weapons, and then can upgrade weapons in to enchanted weapons if you get the Enchanted ember from Darkroot Garden. (Found in a chest guarded by two giant mushrooms) You can find him at the bottom of a staircase when you enter New Londo ruins via Firelink shrine elevator. He's in a cage.
