  1. Of the two, raw is better. Crystal sucks, you can't repair it but in my opinion an elemental weapon is better, either fire or lightning. The strength you have should be used to find a weapon that you feel comfortable with.

  1. The Raw upgrade path gives the weapon a higher base damage but a lower scaling value, this basically means that a high strength will have a minimal impact on the weapon damage.

    The Crystal path is a very damaging path with the major flaw the the items can not be repaired. For this reason alone, I wouldn't suggest it.

    The path I would suggest if you're running a high Str or Dex build would be the Normal path, which retains it's scaling values while getting a stronger base damage value as well.

  2. My personal favorite weapons are chaos they don't have a bonus based on skill but rather on the amount of humanities you carry. I have a claymore with a base damage of 465 but goes as high as 575 with 15 humanities also a zwienhandler with a base of 610 and as high as 745 with 15 humanities both are chaos +5

  3. Also if you come across a black knight sword I recommend saving your twinkling titanite to upgrade it if you are a str build. It gives a very high base damage but also carries a B bonous for strength

  4. That depends on your build for a long time Lightning and Fire Weapons are the way to go. Eventually Divine and Magic Weapons outclass them as you gain faith and intelligence closer to 50. At 40 Faith my Divine Bastard Sword+10 did more Damage than my Lightning Claymore+5. But early on in the game pretty much through the first play through, Lightning and Fire are the way to go.
