Good infusion for a dedicated miracle caster who needs a weapon ready to go at a moments notice, but not excellent. Except on a few weapons, Dark/Chaos or dedicated physical infusions generally perform better.
There is one in the Ringed City catacombs located in one of the side rooms. It is protected by two skeletons.
There's one right at the beggining of archdragon peak. Near the first snake enemy you encounter.
These are supposedly "Found in the aftermath of dragon hunts" which means you use the dragons to destroy the dragons. Interesting
might be wrong but i think theres actually one in archdragon peak? near the elevator shortcut
are you able to infuse claws with it?
i cant edit it but the blue lothric knight lightning gem drop only from the lothric bridge ones
I got one from a lothric knight, so i guess theres also a small chance of that happening
Dose faith scaling affect just lightning damage or both lightning and physical?
Truly, this is the only infusion for true Chad's
I’m doing a sl50 pure faith build (ChaseTheBro’s top 3 invasion builds). I have the exact same stats as him yet his stats says he has 15 more faith (I have 25 he has 40). Is there any explanation for this? He also doesn’t have the faith ring
Easy way to farm it is from the lothric knight in front of the sun altar .
Theres also some locations that arent added
i have so many lightning gems from waiting around the Ringed Inner Wall Bonfire for the spears of church summon. just killing the lightning thief dudes all the way to the ringed city knight and repeating.
I surprisingly found one in ringed city dlc. When you go down in the Tower from the Shared Grave Bonfire and you break through the Floor it's is right in the next room on a corpse. At least in NG+. Never saw this before.
it drops from lothric knights as well.
Your missing a location at archdragon peak. It's on like a rock cliff at the very beginning
How in the ***** do i fuse to katana, i have the *****ing gem and the giants coal, what stat needs to be at what number -_- ***** ass game
hate to be "that guy", but in this context it's "Lothric Thieves", not "Thief's".
Can I infuse a Claymore with a Lightning Gem?
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.
yay just perfect to fight the Abyss Watchers.
actually can anybody infuse a weapon for me ? trading doesnt work.
does anybody have 1 or 2 that he is not using ? i can trade other stuff, don't even know if they are tradeable .
You can get these from the weak mobs around the ringed inner wall bonfire. Dunno the chance, prob rare, just got one. (DLC)
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.
These are all the weapons that scale S in Faith when +10 and lightning infused. There are 10 total. Most of them are Dex focused.(I used this wiki, so it may be incomplete as some weapons did not have all the stats.)Strength Focused:Dark Sword - C in StrengthLothric Knight Sword - D in StrengthAstora Greatsword - D in StrengthDex Focused:Painting Guardian Sword - B in DexShort Sword - C in DexMurakumo - C in DexCarthus Curved Greatsword - C in DexOnikiri and Unadachi - C in DexWinged Spear - C in DexGreat Corvian Scythe - C in Dex
Larg guy with the axe or the larg guy who summons phantoms?
what is the scaling rate anyway it best jsut to lighting infuse instead of buff with lighting sword?
Has anyone ever got one from a blue lothric knight?Just wanted to know before I go and batter them all to get a stone.
is there any a/s scaling?
theres one in boreal valley in the area below the ponteus boss fight
Yay for lightning that scales!
