    i mean i can understand the speed nerf on the MGS and on MSS,since they where broken as hell

    but what about the other G.swords?,before starting PTD i rolled out some build with the AGS and the GGS,and now they lost the only thing that made them someway useful,the ability to stunlock.While the MGS still has the R2 attack, full magic damage AR and the MSS stil does a crapload of damage

    now i see virtually no reason to use them

    this is very sad to me since i love doing cosplay pvp builds and i just cant make a viable artorias build,(and trust me even a gough build is even more viable for pvp)

    I think theyre still usable. It'd be an issue if they did piss poor damage, but they don't. And the poise break will still interrupt their attacks, which can keep you from taking hits. If stunlock is your game, use an UGS. If that's not your style, then frankly, find a new style. The game's changing.

    I'll still use the Clay, even without stunlock it's a useful weapon, especially since people will have generally less poise after the patch. I've seen the nerfed speed and it's only a few frames slower, probably not enough time to roll out of 100% of the time without toggle escape which not everyone knows how to do. So I think they'll still be able to stunlock.
