Boltstone

boltstone.png

An altered state of titanite. Use to imbue weapons with lightning, or to provide lightning reduction to shields.
Sorcerers at the Melfian Magic Academy once attempted to imbue titanite with various elements, but are said to have failed. Someone must have succeeded though; what else would explain this stone?

BoltStone is a type of upgrade material in Dark Souls 2.

 

 

Usage

  • Can only be used at Blacksmith Steady Hand McDuff
  • Used to imbue equipment with lightning. This reduces the Strength and Dexterity scaling, but adds a Faith scaling. (Different weapons add different tiers of scaling).

      Got 2 Boltstones from the Basilisks in Things Betwixt (the ones you get to after getting rid of stone statue) in less than 5 minutes. Used Traveling Merchant Hat, Watchdragon Parma and Rusted Coin for more item find. All of these can be acquired really early. Maybe I got super lucky, but they definitely drop there. I was wondering because this page does not advice to farm the Boltstone in Betwixt.
