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. 


Lightning Upgrade path and Requirements:

Lightning Upgrades for weapons and shields are performed by the Giant Blacksmith at Anor Londo

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

      Lightning infused weapons NOT scaling with faith is the most idiotic thing ever. Wtf was Miyazaki thinking? Oh that's right, he wasn't. What a load of sh*t. Why would weapons that have innate lightning damage scale with faith (like Ornstein's spear and the Giant's Halberd) but not weapons that are infused with lightning? That's really cheap and ruins roleplaying as a faith build. Not everyone wants to go down the divine path for their faith build but they DO want an infusion.
