        At the early part of new game plus I gave ed .y flamelurker soul so that i could make northern regalia, which I immediately did. Now in early 4th quarter of game i have the hard demon soul and went to upgrade my plus 10 large compound bow to lava and it doesn't take. Do i need another flamelurker soul or do i just need to get another large compound bow too plus 7? Thanks in advance.

          I justt turned my +7 short compound bow into the Lava Bow and imediately after that another short compoud bow showed up on the upgrade screen and I thought i needed to press it. And imidiately my Lava Bow disapeared and came back as an +1 short compound bow.
          I lost the lava bow? I even whent back to check if it went to storage and no Bow . I went back to Ed and talkedto him and nothing. I Have Lost It!!!??

            For all Demon's Souls players... This is the best Bow in the game ( For Magic Builds aswell as Faith Miracle builds ). You see , this is the only Bow that technically Scales with Magic Stat in terms of that Fire Bonus Damage that this unique Bow has ( I'm in NG+2 , and this is the most Viable Bow to use against even Tough Enemies no matter what kinda Arrows you use either ). Lava Bow also doesn't have any upgrades , but as of before i used to go with Compound Long Bow +10... The only difference between the 2 Bows is that the Long Bow only has a better damage in terms of Raw damage using different Arrows... But if you have like +40 Magic Stat into your Character , the Lava Bow deals a very good damage actually rather than the Long Bow +10 ( Lava Bow with Heavy Arrows or White Arrows is your best Bet going up against Tough Enemies... or even the 2 Dragons in Boletaria ). Lava Bow is also viable for a Mage Magic build aswell. As the Lava Bow takes the Role of Flame Toss instead of equipping it that means you are saving up 1 Magic Spell Slot for something else helpful ( Like Poison Cloud or even Soul Arrow ). So never underestimate the Lava Bow , it's fairly exactly like Blueblood Sword but the Ranged Weapon version of that sick weapon... Also the Lava Bow works really well for High Dex/STR quality builds too dont forget that.

              editors of this page, could you please set the fire damage on this thing to 100, like how it actually is. If a newbie looked at this and saw it did 55 physical damage on its own then they would think its kind of bad and not use this weapon, even though they may very well like it. Thanks.
