      Really should affect Artorias I believe. I mean he is one of the Godkin right? And I don’t think occult as an abyssal force was a concept in this game

        Probably worth mentioning Occult weapons decrease Faith scaling while raising Strength and Dexterity scaling. They also cannot be buffed.

          Now I am starting the Kiln of the First Flame - The first Black Knight I attack with the Occult Gargoyle Halberd +5 using 2H RB and I get 324 points per hit. I warp back and tried again with a regular Gargoyle Halberd +15 and get 406 per hit using the same 2H RB attack. Not only is there no extra using Occult, there is around 25% less. My stats are a bit higher than I thought - 50/40 with 32 faith. Curious if I am doing something wrong or this is just bad info on the BK and maybe enemies?

            Trying to verify extra damage on Black Knights. I fought the one in Undead Burg with Occult Gargoyle Halberd +5 - damage per hit was around 350. Fought the one in Undead Parish with Gargoyle Halberd +15 and damage was a little over 500. I am NG++++ and I think the health on both knights is close to the same. My stats are 40/40 and I do have 32 faith which helps Occult but I don't think it helps that much. Assuming I get past the 4 Kings again I will test against the BKs before the final boss and see how that works out.

              I love how the earliest moment you can make an occult weapon is after beating Anor Londo, the only place it will do bonus damage... Thanks From Software

                  Can Occult weapons be upgraded or have they reached maximum level? Does that mean picking up the Occult Club in Anor Londo gives you a +15 weapon?

                    Okay it says deal extra damage to enemies end bosses but only specifies which enemies, does that mean all the bosses are submissive to this effect ?
