Lightning Ascension in Dark Souls
|Lightning Ascension adds lightning damage that equals to the base damage. Each upgrade level will increase lightning damage and base damage (lightning defense for shields) and removes all scaling. This is popular in low-level PvP because most armor and shields have low lightning defense, and it has no stat scaling.|
Lightning Upgrades are a type of Upgrade in Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered. They add Lightning Damage or Lightning Defense to Weapons and Shields respectively. The Lightning Damage done by Ascended Lightning Weapons equals the base damage, but the damage does not scale with any stats.
