          It actually has slightly better damage as STR regardless of what the scaling says and it's more efficient to be STR too.

          The big dex scaling is there to make it viable in dex/quality (lol quality) builds. It's ultimately still better as a str weapon.

                The vast majority of weapons in ER scale better with either solely STR or DEX than they do with both.
                The whole point of quality builds in the past was having the most options, which is the opposite in ER.
                There are still a few truly quality weapons, like the Bloodhound's Fang, but not many.

                it has C/B scaling, classic quality statliine
                Yeah the dex scaling is higher but strength gets the 2h bonus. 40/40 is better than 20/60 for the same level investment and it gets great returns on both stats until stupid high levels like 50/80.

          Saw Cleaver is pretty good for r1 spam against a single enemy (high damage and decent speed) but there are definitely weapons that perform better in different situations. Like the Axe with its ridicualous L2 and charged attacks, or the Chikage's edgy period blood mode, or LHB for its ability to stagger + its general utility.
          Like, Saw Cleaver is an amazing weapon in its own right, but I wouldn't say it's the best bar none

        Im not a serious dualgay or anything but I found it works great in pvp. The little flair before the actual wind up and swing is also an attack and if it connects the immediate enemy reaction is often to roll which leaves just enough time for you to do the main attack just as they are ending their roll.

        It helps bind other swords/spears. What that means is when an opposing sword blade or spear haft slides along the blade, it catches onto this 'blade crossguard' and this gives you more control and leverage over the opposing blade/spear so you can direct it around better. Especially the case for spears (which greatswords were designed for fighting against) as spears have more of their weight at the tip, which makes it much harder to control that tip than what the man with the greatsword can do with the weight balance shifted more towards his hands.

                Its power is oversold. I mean, yeah it's really good, but there are a lot of better weapons in this game. I don't even think it cracks the top 30, it's not even the best katana.

      Frick, that thing was so much fun.

      I'd kill for more weapons that have unique attacks that give real mobility options. Practically the only on-demand one we have is the Bloody Helice with Dynast's Finesse, and it's cool as hell but still on a heavy thrusting sword which feels kinda shitty.

      I want a spear or halberd that lets you do some kind of polevault kick or something like that.

      The upgrade distribution in Elden Ring is so fricking bad, I don't know what they were thinking. If you were to go through like the entirety of Ranni's questline underground areas you will end up with more somber smithing stone 7's than you will smithing stone 7's, so you could upgrade 10 unique weapons past that upgrade material and not even one non-unique one fully.

      • 2 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        I think that's because you can customize a normal weapon's ash of war and affinities so it's worth more than a unique one. Even then it's still too much. They should have had the upgrades cost 1>2>3 instead of 2>4>6.

        • 2 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          The worst part is that it discouraged changing up your build/play style. Until late game, you really only get enough stones to continuously upgrade a single non-somber weapon. Trying to upgrade multiple will gimp you since you could've reached a higher weapon level.

            You can generally "main" a weapon and have enough leftover stones to upgrade a 2nd weapon up to the previous tier, and any amount of other weapons up to your current bellbearing tier. If you bother to care about resistances, a +12 mace can end up better than your +18 rapier.

      still has a nice aesthetic for paladin type, still does holy damage, and you get to keep square off, the best AoW in the game.

      Sacred Blade is one of the best ashes in the game, and the flat Holy AR buff it gives makes the bad scaling less relevant.

      It's not like most of the bosses past the first 3rd of the game have melee range longer than the longest spear the player can use. You've got outliers like Malenia, but anything monstrous and most things non-monstrous only care if you're ranged or melee.

  65. 2 weeks ago
    Anonymous

    My top 3 are:
    >Treespear
    You can get it early and with a pure faith build you can constantly switch between buffs. Holy for undead, Lightning for Knights/anything with metal, Black Flame for everything else. Since it has inherent scaling with faith already, slapping on a incantation weapon buff basically gives it S+ faith scaling for the duration. It has some of the highest base damage in the game too. Absolutely moronic Charge R2's, which constantly suprises even PvP metagays.
    >Wing of Astel
    Completely disgusting with light roll and enough endurance, you can infinitely kite people around with just the beams, then drop a charged on the when they get too aggressive. Almost zero Strenght scaling so no point in two handing, aka you can constantly have a small/medium shield out with Carian Retaliation.
    >Zamor Curved Sword
    Sexiest unique moveset in the game, fun L2, just drops too late.

    Most ER weapons are kinda lackluster but those are the most fun imo.

          I don't think they got buffed, people just overlooked them because there are so many other, less common enemies to complain about, like Revenants. Also, the guardians share a couple of moves with asylum demons, so people seemed to just dismiss them as "they're literally the asylum demon lol, so boring," while ignoring the new moves they'd been given, like the shitty rot spray or the deceptively fast stomp.

      Personally I hate the putrid corpse zombies that just poise through your attack and bite you, or just rise up out of nowhere and bite you while you're fighting other enemies. Their grab does way too much damage and they always manage to catch me off guard.

        Honestly caelid birds are easy if you don't try to run away. They'll just do simple beak swipes that leaves them open to headshot and bellyflop charges that you can simply walk away from.

          Yeah, I noticed that too now that I'm replaying it, but my first playthrough was as a sorcerer and they really sucked to fight against.
          In general, it feels like they specifically designed some bosses and enemies for ranged and melee combat. It's nice, since changing playstyle forces you to switch strategy and some fights that are easy with one style are more difficult with others and vice versa.

      I hate Royal Revenants more. Not a single enemy fits more as definition of modern From design as them. Yeah, you can stun them with healing magic but I never discovered this gimmick on my first playthrough because I'm not a homosexual.

      Sister Friede build:
      Two Grave Scythes, one uninfused with Chilling Mist. Use L2, buff with Black Flame, instantly proc frost and reset it in one or two swings.

      Other scythe Flame Art with Black Flame Tornado. An offhand dagger with Hoarfrost Stomp. Get 60 faith, Black flame and healing incants only.

      Not as dumb as bleed builds but very viable. % based damage from Black Flame stuff only gets better in the lategame and with this you have both frost and fire ranged options without costing too much FP. Scythes are a blast too.

              Good, it's a dex/arc weapon with a larger arc scaling than the executioner. The skill isn't as strong because of how the damage scaling works with it, but it's a good side arm with builds that aren't using the executioner sword.

              Low range and low AR but the drill can do a shitload of damage if you spec fully into multhihit buffs. Not nearly as much as the greatsword but still respectable damage output for a straightsword skill.

              Both have a good starting sword for beating the sentinel. Confessor actually starts with faith, but has 1 point less dex, endurance, and 5 less vigor. You start with a cooler shield and some incants too but the incants it has kinda suck and you can get the heal early on anyway so it's not a big deal.

        this guy's mods are really cool, but just trivialize the game so much

        Holy shit I just watched all of those and I'm super impressed. Some of it is obviously broken as hell but you could structure runs or mod overhauls around this kind of gameplay. How is this even possible? We never saw anything like this with the souls games on this level but all of a sudden elden ring mods have skyrim level capabilities?

          a lot of it is taking movesets from other games, like the frenzy scythe is from gherman, the fire katana is from isshin, etc.
          But lots of the other stuff is just crazy and I have no idea where it comes from

            How is that possible without recreating those animations from scratch? Idk how fromsoft mods work. It's wild that ppl can just take pieces of movesets from all enemies and weapons that have ever existed throughout a decade old IP and make something almost brand new with it

              because ultimately the games all run on more or less the same basic code, so it's not particularly difficult to import animations from one game to another

                That's pretty cool. I always thought dark souls should have been more like gmod or skyrim with their extensive mod support. I wish dragon's dogma was like that

                yeah I don't know much about souls modding so there's not much I can say
                but its always been nearly impossible to do things like create new terrain, while changing movesets isn't too hard

          also this one is very impressive

          a lot of it is from other weapons, but he's definitely animating some of it himself

    Gonna do a FTH run for the DLC.
    Kinda wanna do a basic b***h paladin with a one-handed weapon and shield.
    Should I run pure FTH or mix with STR/DEX?

        I'd go with STR+FTH.
        You get to use STR somber hammers like the one that stretches and also the Marika Hammer from the final boss.

        Cool, I'll go STR/FTH then.

    2 years later, after doing my best in mastering bosses, I'm convinced that the Valiant Gargoyles are the biggest pieces of shit in the game if you face them at an appropriate level/Weapon level.

      They’re fine with a strike weapon. Also, besides this duo, I’ve noticed you don’t fight a single gargoyle in a normal arena in this game. It’s always on stairs or some cramped area where they’re at a high risk of acting up. I hate when enemies do that animation cancel caused by falling, even when it doesn’t do much other than look off, and it happens all the time with gargoyles. In fact, I think the most normal area you can fight them in overall is in ashen leyndell near the roundtable.

    Most of the colossal swords are cool but I also hope there are more zwei sized swords, like the DS1 greatsword or the DS3 astora greatsword
