Notes

  • Weapon cannot be enchanted/buffed
  • Chaos weapons scale with Humanity stat, up to 10 Humanity
  • At 5 Humanity, a Chaos +5 weapon starts to overtake its Fire +10 counterpart (Chaos has higher Fire damage while Fire has higher physical damage)

    At 10 Humanity, a Chaos +5 weapon effectively has the same physical damage and about 16% more Fire damage than its Fire +10 counterpart
