Usage[edit | edit source]
Fire Gems can be used to infuse a weapon with an essence of fire, which will cause a weapon to inflict equally-split physical and fire damage.
Many Undead enemies or creatures, such as Peasant Hollows and Starved Hounds, are naturally weak to Fire damage, and thus, a Fire-infused weapon can prove useful. However, one must be cautious, as attacking an enemy with such a weapon now has to take into account two defenses. As such, enemies that possess a resistance to fire will take notably less damage.
Fire infusions also remove all scaling effects present on the weapon after infusion, which means that it is most efficient when using such an infused weapon at its minimum wielding requirements.
