Well I kinda like the scimitar better than the falchion - I think it swings just a bit faster than the falchion does. Plus with the infinite supply of scimitars the crystal +4/+5 version is basically all I use so the damage output is adequate.
A lot of players ask me about the magic +5 grass shield (roughly 51 stability / 50% magic defense) - it works out pretty well since I also don't use it to block unless it's my only option. It can repel light attacks from Ricards, Velka's, rapier without much stamina drain and if you just use the grass shield for additional stamina regen and ripostes then it works out pretty well. I keep a normal +15 just in case though . When I want serious magic protection I switch over to the magic version of the warriors round shield and use the cloranthy for stamina regen.
