      from my personal experience i would only use raw if u want to have base stats for your weapon, and still want to use a buff SLB DMB or whatever, if u dont want that i would just use lightning or chaos

        A +0 Fire weapon gets more AR than a +5 Raw one. I just doesn't see the point of this. You can get a better infusion even sooner. If you plan on a low level build, pay a visit to Vamos and forget about this...

          It's to get more damage out of a weapon without relying on the stat scaling (strength/dex/faith/intelligence/ etc.)

            The only use I could think of raw is if you want more base dmg before anor londo or at low lvl pvp and even then a 10+ isn’t far behind
