The Damage stat dictates how much damage the weapon does. The Damage stats for a weapon are A / B / C / D / E:

Each weapon has one or more Physical damage types:

  • Standard
  • Strike
  • Slash
  • Thrust

Certain enemies are weak or strong against different damage types.
See the damage formula for further details.

Aux Effect:

The Aux Effect stat dictates how effective the weapon will be at causing the effect. The Aux Effect stats for a weapon are A / B / C:


Damage multiplier when performing a backstab or riposte. Value of 100 means no extra damage.

Spell Buff:

Damage multiplier applied to the base value of a Spell. This value scales depending on the primary stat of the Catalyst, i.e. a Catalyst with Intelligence scaling will have its Spell Buff rise as the player's Intelligence rises.

By default the value reflected in the infobox and the upgrades uses 60 Intelligence and/or Faith.

Stats Needed:

The Stats Needed determines how high various Stats must be in order to wield the weapon effectively. The stats required for a weapon are A / B / C / D:

Wielding a weapon without the required Strength and/or Dexterity will incur a penalty to the Physical damage of the weapon, while lower-than-required Intelligence and/or Faith will reduce the Magic/Fire/Lightning/Dark damage and Spell Buff.

The Damage Reduction % of the weapon. It dictates how much damage the weapon mitigates while blocking. The Damage Reduction % stats for weapons are A / B / C / D / E :

attacks without breaking guard and reduces the amount of stamina depleted from blocking attacks.

over 100% will reduce your regular speed to walking and attempts to roll or backstep will leave you momentarily stunned.
