I picked up the Drake Sword near the start of the game. It's been great up until now, made the game nowhere near as hard as it would have been without it, it does like 200 damage and it doesn't weigh much.
I'm now in the depths, I've upgraded the sword to +1, but I realised that leveling up my strength isn't increasing my attack power.
Is this because the Drake Sword doesn't scale with stats?
If so, then should I be thinking about leveling up a normal weapon to +5 that scales with stats and using that instead?
