Diminishing Returns

Diminishing Returns is a common concept in RPGs, meaning that for a given investment, i.e. one point in a stat, you receive a smaller benefit, e.g. fewer hit points per point in the HP stat. Most stats provide a constant benefit until they've reached 30-40 points; See the table above for details on each stat.

Note: Enemies do not scale based on your Soul Level. Leveling up will not make enemies harder, only completing the game and entering successive levels of NG+ will make the enemies harder. By the same token, your character will never grow weaker with additional investment in a stat, it will simply gain a smaller benefit, in both stats and weapons due to the fact you need some requirements to wield a certain weapon.
