Notes

  • Dark Damage seems to be effective against "ancient" foes like Black Knight and enemies, that were deformed without an influence of the Abyss.
  • Dark Damage seems to be ineffective against enemies corrupted by Abyss, giants, undead and most enemies using dark magic.
  • The only dark damage weapon available before Vordt of the Boreal Valley boss fight is the Deep Battle Axe
  • Top 3 armor sets for Dark resistance are Havel's set (30.7), Karla's set (30.2), and Winged Knight set (33.7).

      Based on what is cannon in the series and how the nature of the Dark Soul and so the branding on humans, I wonder if hollowing has any effect on Dark Damage output vs. Not being hollowed. Can anyone confirm, or disprove this? Would be cool to see it do more damage.

        Does all dark damage scale with Intelligence/Faith ? or does it depend on wether it's a miracle, sorcery or pyromancy ? am i just stupid for asking this ?

          So Dark damage is basically the old "Occult" damage from Dark Souls 1 with the exception of demons being weak to it, am I right?
