I have been messing around a bit and wondered what weapon had the highest dexterity scaling on my dexterity /vitality build. If you do know what weapon has the highest scaling, could you please leave where to find it in your answer?
First of all, you need to know that dex scaling is pretty wonky. There's not much benefit between an A and S rank. Keep that in mind.
Also note that poison and bleeding scales with DEX.
The weapons with best DEX scaling ( A/S ) are:
Ricard's Rapier (starts with A scaling, gets S once upgraded to +5) - Huntsman's Copse. Bottom of the pit after first bonfire. Rare drop from Spiders in Brightstone Cove Tseldora.
Curved Dragon Greatsword (S)- Trade Ancient Dragon Soul with Ornifex
Hunter's Blackbow (S) - Found in the chest down a ladder at the second bonfire before the Dual Dragonrider boss at Drangleic Castle.
