>not using a claymore
What's wrong with you?
wot r u casul?
worse than katanafags
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.
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.
The worst thing is that they don't remove the phantom hitboxes
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?
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.
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.
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.
>not using Katana's non-retarded European counterpart that is made by patrician-tier weaponsmiths
Explain yourself /v/.
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.
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.
My nigga. Pic related is the best weapon in game in terms of damage and moveset. Great scythe is a close second.
What's your favorite then you giant faglord?
Hell yea motherfuckers
>Balder Swag Sword
>Crystal Magic Weapon
>everyone dead in 2 hits
>Pursuers just for fun
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.
>oh no, somebody stole my fanfic idea
Man, it's too bad that these Souls games are really fun despite numerous flaws, but the fanbase is just so shitty. Just accept that those games have barely any plot to support them.
>not using the most broken weapon in the game
>Chaos Shotel +5
>Invading people in the undead parish
>I'm level 10
>using weapons other than darksteel katana
its almost like you guys dont like winning and having fun
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.
