I know that in Dark Souls 2, you can infuse weapons to make them do elemental damage, but what does Raw do? Does it just increase damage? If not, what else does it do? Also, would it be worth it to Raw a Great Club, or is there a better option?
Raw weapons greatly increase the base damage of the weapon and removes any scaling it had.
The point of this infusion is to improve the damage of weapons withouth scaling for builds that have the minimun stat to use the weapon and focuses on other stats that tend not to scale like health and resistance.
The same is applied for Dark Souls (1).
If you aren't pumping your strength it could be a good infusion you would lose that B scaling but wouldn't be a great inconvenience.
