    Top 10 Under-appreciated Weapons

    Post by IV_Mark_VI on Fri Sep 14, 2012 6:29 pm

    Hey Guys, stole this from Fruit Punch.

    Curious as to what weapons you guys think aren't top tier, but are close and just don't get enough play.

    Bastard sword would be here for me, but it's limited range can be hampering. I'd also put Greatsword on here; I rarely see it used, but I was very effective when I had it on my Iron Tarkus build.

    Here's my list:
    Bastardsword
    Greatsword
    Server
    Battleaxe
    Crescent Axe
    Pickaxe
    Heavy Crossbow
    Gargoyle Tail Axe: D/B scaling with a 232 base plus resistances.
    Ricards Rapier; just has style.
    Gravelord Sword

    Here's FruitPunchNinjas (FruitPunch: I'll delete this if you want to put it up yourself!) Everything below this is his:



    My favorite underused weapons are:

    -Winged Spear
    -Broadsword
    -Darksword
    -Flamberge
    -Butcher Knife
    -Claws
    -Dragon Bone Fist
    -Blacksmith Giants Hammer
    -Gravelord Greatsword
    -Silver Knight Straightsword

    I think the top ones mentioned are pretty much what can be considered the "best", i honestly don't dislike any weapon. I like to use them all, which is why i have a lot of different builds and switch my set ups around a lot.

    I haven't seen anyone using the painting guardian sword. Even though it has low range, it has extremely high scaling and an awesome moveset

    The most under-rated/under-appreciated weapon is the Black Knight Greatsword.

    1. Cestus
    2. A.S.S < astoire sword
    3. Bastard sword
    4. Short sword
    5. Broad sword
    6. Dagger
    7. Whip
    8. crescent axe
    9. Grant
    10. mace

    The top 2 are underated for a reason. They suck hardcore and are only good for really early game or for a challenge. It would be nice if they brought back dual wielding movesets but for small weapons like daggers and claws etc.

    The Dark Sword

    It does weigh 3 more lbs. than the Balder Side Sword, but I find its ability to chain its light attacks with its stylish heavy attacks too good to pass up. I also find it easy to troll parry spammers with said chaining of heavy attacks. For some reason it seems like people have a difficult time to parry it.

    ^ I find the Dark Sword is a bit too heavy, If I want a straight sword that weighs the same as the clay I'll go with the SK Sword, which has beastly range.

    I'd sacrifice range any day if I can get in someone's face and pull off a combo with the Dark Sword. I find the weapon to have deceptive range, anyway. The Silver Knight Sword is second on my list of under-appreciated weapons, though. big grin

    The Sunlight Straight Sword is a wonderful fantastic quality C/C weapon that's got a good moveset and is light compared to other quality weapons.

    I only recently started using it but I've not seen many large clubs and I find it's moveset very rewarding.

    I agree on PGS it's a beast when it does it's thing, even if it is a bit one dimensional.

    I just got destroyed this afternoon by a fantastic SSS user in the burg, that guy was unbelievable. I'm glad I have a +15 version of it, I really want to learn the ins and outs of it now.

    PGS is, for me, far and away the most underrated weapon in the game. I've only seen it used by people doing cosplays. It puts out tons of damage, it bleeds, it stunlocks, has a weird *ss moveset, and will tear someone down at full hp in about four seconds. God help you if it's crystal. It's only drawback is reach, but against the plethora of GS players out there it's irrelevent. In a stunlock contest, the vast majority of the time they WILL break first. And then it's over.
