      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.

          These are supposedly "Found in the aftermath of dragon hunts" which means you use the dragons to destroy the dragons. Interesting

            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

                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'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.

                      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
