Old Mundane Stones are upgrade materials in Dark Souls II

In-Game Description

An altered state of titanite.
Use to imbue weapons with the power of the mundane. Cannot be used on shields.
People do not look favorably on the banal, but sometimes even the most mundane of objects can cast things in a most pleasant light.


Dropped by Gyrm Warriors, Undead Steelworkers and Crystal Lizards.

After the Undead Crypt has been cleared, Stone Trader Chloanne will sell 3 of these stones for 10,000 souls each.

If given a Small Smooth & Silky Stone or Smooth & Silky Stone, Dyna & Tillo have a chance to give you a stone in return.

General information[]

Used at Steady Hand McDuff. Reduces current damage stats of weapons to half and adds high scaling based on lowest player stat. It will add +6 points per stat level until 20. It then improves by three until the lowest stat is at 30, where it will then increase by ~1 point per level.

Mundane scaling.png

If two or more stats are tied for lowest stat, only one of those stats will contribute to the scaling.

In short, if a player has very good and balanced levels across all skills, then it is preferable to use this infusion over Raw, as Raw simply increases the base stat by a small amount, while Mundane may increase the values of a weapon exponentially. Still, if a player is yet to have extremely good and balanced stats, then Raw is better.


  • Mundane works best on weapons that have little to no scaling, such as Santier's Spear. If Mundane is applied to a weapon with B, A or S scaling, the damage will drop drastically.
  • While Mundane-infused weapons have their base damages reduced by 50%, the Blue Dagger and the Retainer's Short Sword have theirs reduced to around 1/7 of their originals. The reason is currently unknown.
