    Good CMW dex weapons?

    Post by midgeamoo on Sat Sep 08, 2012 7:12 pm

    Hey, in NG+ with my PvE character at the moment using a CMW/Dex build. I've decided that my Painting Guardian's Sword just isn't the weapon to me (the short range can be VERY frustrating in some situations) and am currently trying Riccard's Rapier which I quite like, although it's also sometimes a bit frustrating in certain situations as it never moves vertically, it only thrusts horizontally.

    What dex weapons do you guys normally go for with buff based builds? Just to clarify it's heavily based around CMW/Power within/Lingering dragoncrest ring.

    Edit: I only have 16 STR and don't really want to go higher, just to add.

    My favorite weapon overall to buff is probably the Falchion, but it isn't as versatile as some of the others, like the Balder Side sword or Longsword, etc....

    Falchion, that thing destroys with a buff or no buff.

    Night gathers, and now my watch begins.
    I am the sword in the darkness, I am the watcher on the walls, I am the fire that burns against the cold, the light that brings the dawn, the horn that wakes the sleepers, the shield that guards the realm of men.
    I pledge my life and honor to the knight's watch for this night and all the nights to come.

    Ricards Buffed with CMW is absolutely deadly in both PVP and PVE

    Another weapon I really like buffed is Iato.

    Falchion is probably the best choice though, buff it, lock on, and let an opponent get close, if you two hand it and keep swinging away you'll never get backstabbed, and you'll destroy your opponent.

    I second the Falchion, it is one of the best weapons in the game buff or no buff. You can win fights literally just by spamming r1. It breaks 76 poise in what seems like 3-4 hits.
