      for plebs who don't realise this (and the wiki) this buff will also buff your weapon's phys AR as my Lost Sinners Sword (0 sin, uninfused) does around 700 damage with 50/50 str dex and when reso buff, suddenly hits for 900+ damage, ez buff ez win.

          Can be used to buff some weapons that can't be buffed naturally. Sotfs, I dark infused the Smelter Hammer, could not buff with dark weapon, but resonant weapon worked. Probably needs more testing, I'm sure this wasn't just a one off.
