I'm deciding between turning my Zweihander into a Lightning +5 or Chaos +5.

The DarkSoulStats calculator still lists the following:

Chaos Zweihander +5 w/ 10 Humanity does 736 damage (341 Phys + 395 Fire)

Lightning Zweihander +5 does 721 damage (357 Phys + 364 Lightning)

I was reading on the steam forums that the Special Edition reduced the Lightning damage of the Zweihander at +5 to 650 and was wondering if this was a change implemented in the last update/patch for consoles as well.

The only mention in the patch notes is extremely vague as it gives no numerical values but simply states: "Elemental weapons have lower AR".

Does this mean only Lightning or does the change also include Fire/Chaos weapons as well? I really don't want to burn my last slabs on a +5 and be crestfallen when I find out the damage is less than I could have achieved via other means (e.g. buffs and stat scaling).

Any input (or links to topics I missed in search) is appreciated!

Choose lightning. Seriously, there are so many more defenses against fire in this game than there are for lightning.

Does anyone have any solid data on the new numbers, or a link to an updated page?
