Scaling is an increase in damage output from a Weapon or casting tool. A weapons effectiveness gives an added damage bonus either in Strength, Dexterity, Faith, Intelligence, and Luck.

A letter denoting a weapons specific scaling properties is listed beneath the weapon's required stats. The letters range in order of effectiveness from E, D, C, B, A, and S.

Weapons with an E rating for scaling will receive a poorest benefit while weapons with an S rating receive the greatest.


  • Scaling's soft cap (meaning investment up to this number has the greatest effectiveness) is at 25.
  • Scaling's hard cap (Meaning Investment after this point will diminish in effectiveness) is at 40.
