Fire Ascension in Dark Souls

Fire ascension adds Fire Damage to the weapon. It increases base damage and fire damage that equals to each other per upgrade level and Fire Defense of the shields. However, it removes all stat scaling bonuses. Recommended for low level players with low stat.

Fire Upgrades are a type of Upgrade in Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered. They enable players to "Ascend" weapons and shields in a specific path.


Fire Upgrade path and Requirements:

Fire Upgrades for weapon and shield are performed by Blacksmith Vamos in The Catacombs.

Note that each upgrade level requires a number of soul that varies depending on the weapon.


From 0 to +5

From +5 to +9

      I guess I'm just a newbie or whatever....
      but so many of these weapon upgrades say "good/recommended for low level players with low stats", except you don't get the ember and necessary materials until like halfway through the game.
      Like, who's out there running around with rare embers, chunks and slabs and is still at low levels?

        I don't really understand the logic behind ascension that removes scaling from weapons, at a point in the game at which most people will have high stats for their weapons...
