If you use the:

Claymore, Zweihander, Great Sycthe, Balder Side Sword, Fury Sword, Gravelord Sword, Falchion, or any of the Black Knight weapons, Pursuers/Dark Bead you are terrible at Dark Souls.

I meet people using these weapons in PvP constantly, and I always wipe the floor with them.

>if you use any weapon you like, you are shit

Anyway, I just started a run with the Zweihander. I was never much for STR weapons in Dark Souls 1, so going through the game with just the Zweihander and no shield is interesting. Wouldn't call it hard though.
>>
remember how they nerfed the claymore, the only good strength weapon in dark souls, while not nerfing the OP dex weapons?

man the balance team for that game was abysmal
>>
>>324354725

Sums up Dark Souls 2 in a nutshell. Nerf everything but Katanas.
>>
>>324354725
I usually play STR in Souls games. Might go back to DaS1 and try out a dex build. What are the weapons that are OP and most fun to use?
>>
>>324354625
as a girl, apparently. very patrician
>>
>>324354792
Nerf everything and buff katanas*
>>
>>324354792

>Katana's are already strong enough as is
>They get buffed

I don't know what goes through their heads.
>>
>>324354872

In the long run, all that does is make the worst players gravitate towards Katanas. They become so over-exposed, that their movesets become predictable.

>>324354986

The worst thing is that they don't remove the phantom hitboxes
>>
>>324354725
>The only good strength weapon

Someone didn't use the Great Club.
>>
>>324354835

Gold tracer, buffed falchion, chaos blade, rapier and balder side sword are all the classic go to weapons for dex.
>>
>>324355084
I think the rationale behind it was a "fix" for katanas in PvE.
>>
What are the odds of Dark Souls 3 being better than 2?
>>
>>324354835
SLB/DMB Falchion with Estoc backup

Showing up to fight clubs with that setup made all shitters mad as fuck back in the day.

>>324353312
zweihander looks like shit
>>
>>324355084

That ain't the problem with katanas, it might be a problem but that's not what makes katana's retarded bullshit, what makes them bullshit in dark souls 2 is 160 counter, trading with a katana is absolute suicide for no good reason, why the fuck does it have such a high counter?

the reason why most of you faggots probably think 4kings is hard is because you use slow as shit greatswords and other heavy weps

>>324355998
I haven't played since the DLC patch hit, but unless they changed the mechanics of the 2H rolling attack, you won't be able to poise tank through it or even parry it. It was the single most broken attack in the game for PvP dueling.
>>
I used the claymore, untill i got the big sword from that arthritis guy.
>>
>>324355903
>what is rng
Nah, make no mistake, BKH has an excellent move set, but I'd rather build around a weapon I'm guaranteed to get.
Claymore and halberd all day.

This guy shamelessly takes every idea he ever came up with from /v/ and /dsg/.

I remember that time when anons on /dsg/ made shit up about the lore and a week later, Vaati spews the exact same bogus shit posted in the thread.
>>
>>324356592

I got all the Dark Souls lore/commentary I needed from Matthewmatosis

Pretty much everything Vaati has said is speculation, and using other people's ideas. The only two vids that Vaati made that I liked, were the translation video, and the cut content video.
>>
>>324356592
Can you elaborate? I dont go to /dsg/, nor do I watch VaatiVidya, but this sounds fun as shit.
>>
>>324352702

Well the souls community has gone to shit and doesn't want to pick weapons no one else uses.

Explain yourself /v/.
>>
>>324356747

Mathewmatoisis is Vaati 2.0 except he makes it apparent he wants us to like him and thus shills here.
>>
>>324357073

Basically /v/ or /vg/ comes up with a really convincing explination for something in a souls game and then vaati takes it, gets credit for it and sends it out to normies.

Through this he became a shill for namco when DaS II is out and because DaS II lore is incredibly hard to link to DaS nobody gives a shit.

I haven't watched too much vaati but some shit I'm sure he stole that I've seen included an origin story for Pinwheel and the theory that the Dark Sign is a creation of the gods to get humanity to willingly purge their humanity to sustain the first flame.
>>
>tfw greatswords were strong, decently paced weapons in Demon's Souls, with nice movesets.

>they make them a little slower in Dark series, with not as good movesets
>even worse in Dark 2, where tracking is shit

Demon's Souls is the only game in the series where I think I actually enjoyed large swords. They ruined them for me.
>>
>>324358123

str will never be viable in pvp and this is because from sees the faster combat of dex weapons to be more "fair" than what they perceive as one shot weapons in the strength area.

Magic being broken doesn't matter because they don't think in terms of builds and to them there is no reason to not pic up various anti-magic spells.
>>
>>324354009
My nigga. Pic related is the best weapon in game in terms of damage and moveset. Great scythe is a close second.

>>324352702
Are there any good dex weapons you can make with a boss soul? Dragonslayer Spear requires a lot of strength and its damage output isn't all that great, Priscilla's Scythe is fucking garbage and the rest is strictly strength based.

The best dex weapon I knoe of is Great Scythe, but it has a whatever moveset and Silver Knight Spear, though you can't buff that shit and it's kinda whatever during boss fights.

it's been so long since i played Ds1 i'll just post a screenshot of my last char since i don't recall the names of equipment,
i tried to make a Dex based char so i dressed lightly and carried the lightest heavy shield with that katana that remove HP every time you hit.
i don't know why i thought of that but i played this way for the whole game and never got any problem.

I like it heavier.
