  • Chaos weapons inflict fire damage, and scale with Intelligence and Faith.

 

 

Chaos Gem Locations

  • On a corpse at the far end of the Smouldering Lake, near the left group of big crabs.
  • Crystal lizard at the start of Demon Ruins, down the hole in Smouldering Lake.  Drop down and go left around a corner. (Video)
  • Randomly drops from a Smoldering Ghru (Video)
  • Crystal lizard in the Grand Archives. From the bonfire follow the path forward until a dark room with 2 lizards that run up the movable stairs. It is the closest lizard to you, on the left.

  • Requires the Giant's Coal in order to start infusing weapons.
  • Weapon is no longer able to be buffed with resin or spells after infusion. (However, weapon can still be buffed with Warcry Skill.)
  • The scaling on weapons differs depending on the weapon infused. (A corvian greatknife gets E scaling at +0 for both, while a Notched whip gets D scaling)

      For a Pyromancer, Chaos and Dark infusions are very handy, and best, obviously if you just buff your weapon with Carthus Flame you will deal more damage, but using Chaos or Dark infusions come very handy, you don't need to use a slot for Carthus Flame Arc, you don't have to rebuff your weapon everytime, you don't spend time buffing your weapon(and specially in PvP and boss fights you may not have time to do buff), you don't need FP to buff your weapon.

      Also many weapons have really good scaling with Chaos or Dark infusions(both infusions always have same scaling):
      A/A scaling for Carthus Curved Greatsword, Astora Greatsword, Murakumo, Great Corvian Scythe, etc.
      B/B scaling for Carthus Curved Sword, Zweihander, Dark Sword, Claymore, Gotthard Twinswords, Greatsword, Cathedral Knight Greatsword, Lothric Knight Greatsword, Exile Greatsword, Onikiri and Ubadachi, etc.

      These are just some examples there is a lot more good weapon with A/A or B/B scaling, and a few "meta" weapons with C/C scaling. As a note, if you know any weapon that scales S with Lightning or Crystal, this means it will have A/A for Chaos or Dark, if it has A instead of S then it will be B/B, and etc.

        this infusion is only good for build who both have hight int/faith but all those builds are crapp,having like only 60 faith and buffing your weapon is miles better

        • Is it worth it?30 Jul 2016 08:55  

          For a pyromancer build, is it better than the carthus flame weapon? Because of the scaling loss in str/dex maybe the spell is more usefull

            Tested on Smouldering Ghru just outside Old King Antechamer. Wearing Symbol of Avarice, +1 Gold Serpent Ring and Crystal Rapier with both Rusted coins used. <br/><br/>Got 2 out a total of 53 attempts.

              if this is one of the better infusions. Like Dark it fits a magic/melee character, since it scales with all stats. Not being able to infuse your weapon is a bummer, but the damage seems to be pretty good.<br/><br/>40/40 Int/Fth seems like a good idea, a long with balanced Str/Dex (depending on the weapon).

                would anyone say that this gem is the new mundane infusion?<br/><br/>mundane was the best scaling infusion me thinks because it had the best scaling for your lowest attribute.<br/><br/>so if you were a deprived class that just takes everything statwise it was ideal<br/><br/>this makes it so you can have a str/dex weapon scale with int/faith, yes?<br/><br/>dark gem also does same thing... every other infuse either adds 1 more attribute for scale + something like FP or HP recovery, or just makes one or two attributes scale better... (if you are more specialized)
