|Upgrade to Normal +5 using nine Titanite Shards at any Blacksmith or with a Weapon Smithbox|
|1. Give the Large Ember to Andre of Astora in order to ascend Normal +5 Weapons to Raw +0
2. Ascend a Normal +5 Weapon to Raw +0 by giving one Large Titanite Shard to Andre of Astora
|Upgrade from Raw +0 to Raw +5 using nine Large Titanite Shards at any Blacksmith or with a Weapon Smithbox|
- The Large Ember is required to ascend Normal weapons above +5
- Most Raw Weapons cost 200 souls per level to upgrade. The cost can vary however between 100 and 800 souls, depending on weapon size.
- A Raw weapon's base attack value becomes higher at the cost of its Strength / Dexterity scaling property becoming lower. As such, Raw weapons are more powerful in the early game or for characters with relatively low Strength / Dexterity stats.
- Raw weapons can be enchanted with Magic Weapon, Great Magic Weapon, Crystal Magic Weapon, Hidden Weapon, Sunlight Blade and Darkmoon Blade.
