I am a Nub and this will prove it. on the weapons page on Wiki I get every thing except what the letters stand for in the Parameter Bonuses section like what does D, E, A, B, and C stand for did a walkthrough with a Sorcerer now I would like to build something with my type of game play but I do not understand what the letters stand for
From worst to best: E, D, C, B, A, S
It just means how well a weapon scales to its corresponding stat.
For example, take a look at the Channeler's Trident it scales E, C, B, -
This means that it scales poorly with Strength, acceptably with Dexterity, above average with Intelligence, and does not get any sort of scaling bonus from Faith.
So, if you had this weapon and you wanted to build up your character to maximize this weapon's potential you would need to level your Intelligence, with some Dexterity sprinkled in.
