        It's not half bad. When you have low strength and dexterity but 60 faith this infusion is better than buffing weapons with Lightning Blade in few cases like Lothric Knight's Sword for example. I get around 270 pure lightning damage accompanied with around 180 physical damage which is more lightning damage and higher AR than what the spell buff coupled with a regular LKS gives.

            Split Damage24 Jun 2016 11:17  

            Does the split damage when you infuse affect the overall damage much? I'm considering infusing my Dark Sword with lightning on my Str/Faith but don't want to be weakened due to split damage.
