Would upgrading a parrying dagger affect the strength of my ripostes?

  1. I just started my 3rd playthrough on a dual-wielding character. Of course, I know all too well this is gonna be hard, so I grabbed the parrying dagger in new londo as soon as i could so I'll at least be able to parry attacks.

    However, I was wondering if upgrading it towards any path would affect the damage I do when I parry with it and riposte with my right-handed weapon.

    Another semi-related question was if there would be a particular visual effect when parrying with it if I was to upgrade it on the fire/chaos/lightning path. For instance, would a flame appear when a hit connects successfully on my parry?

  1. The answer for both questions would be no. Upgrading only affects damage output, it doesnt influence parry or blocking. And likewise, there arent special effects for parry, only for succesful hits
