Weapon Upgrades

weapon upgradesHow do weapon upgrades work in Elden Ring?

In Elden ring there are two way to upgrade your weapon, the first is by using Smithing Stone Shards at the Smithing Table, this type of upgrade changes the Numerical Value of the Weapon (+1,+2,+3 etc.).

The second type of upgrade is through Ashes of War, these upgrades change the Affinity of your weapon which dictates which Stats it scales with, to do this upgrade you apply an Ash of War to your weapon which will then ask you if you wish to change the Affinity of your weapon.
