      With 60 fth, and minimal stat requirements, a Lightning infused Heide Knight SS with Sunlight Blade buff can get about 1.7-2k riposte damage depending on your ring setup.

        So i can use this on my lightning infused heide spear which has innate lightning and this results in 3 sources of lightning. Innate+infuse+buff. But i can't use it on boss weapons like dragonslayer spear?

          Since it doesn’t scale with anything and adds a set amount of damage, you could use skeptics spice to lower the faith req a lot and not have to invest much into faith

            How much damage does it add when you only have 36 faith and every time you level up how much more damage does it add

                So far the best weapon buff spell in game. Lightning only scales with Faith so no need to invest in INT like Dark Weapon. And there is seldom anyone resists lightning unlike Fire which a lot of enemies resist it. Fire weapon is good, but not so versatile compares to lightning especially when you have to go into NG+ to get the spell. A lightning infused weapon with sunlight blade has more DPS than sacred oath
