"Ember required for weapon ascension. The church long hid the forbidden black ember, and no living blacksmith knows of it.
Ascends +5 divine weapon to occult weapon. (occult weapon can be reinforced to +5)
Occult weapons were used to hunt the Gods, and are effective against their followers and kin."



Note about occult
  • It isn't the same thing as divine. Divine excels in fighting undead and things that have no soul anymore, like skeletons and such. Occult is a whole other type of reinforcement, it excels in fighting living things that have souls, like a lot of enemies in the game (especially Black Knights and Silver Knights, which take extra damage).
  • Note that NO extra damage is done by occult to invaders, hosts or phantoms in PvP.
