    That's exactly the reason why I don't love the DSS bro. I only use it while hunting.

    now you know why i consider it the most OP weapon in the game.
    Being beatable does not change that it's better then a majority of the weapons in every category.
    It's like... 4 star damage, 5 star range, 4 star speed, 3 star poise break, and 3 star chip damage.

    Which makes it overall, the strongest weapon in the game, since you could also turtle with it.

    I consider the SKS to be better at mid to low pvp lvls (below 100) because of its low stat investment compared to the DSS.

    I second goober for low levels, and add that the BKGA is perhaps the most overpowered weapon that doesn't belong to the spear category (Don't forget the MLBH, less damage but 5-star chip).

    And it weighs less.

    My SL 99 SKS build has 56 poise, almost 1800 health, high defenses and poison/bleed resist. And i'm fast rolling.

    Couldnt have all that at the same SL with the DSS cause of the weight



    ANNNND the DSS splits damage.

    Looking at the damage split though, it's physical hits for just a little under the SKS, and you could treat the lightning as a permanent gold pine resin buff. Plus, dem r2s are beastly when you land them.

    DSS - Dragon Slayer Spear

    MLBH - Moonlight Butterfly Horn

    OP - Over Powered

    BKGA - Black Knight Great Axe

    SKS - Sliver Knight Spear

    Don't worry Slake you'll get used to it eventually but I do have to think about some of them too, just look at the context most of the time. Then again less acronyms would be nice. happy

    I just don't use the SKS,DSS, or dragon slayer spear. They really are too powerful, despite not having high AR. The only time i will use them is if my opponent is using one. I prefer the SKS out of all of them, if i was going to pick.

    My favorite OP weapon that i actually do use a lot is the Great Scythe. It is obviously one of the most powerful weapons, and one of the few that can actually go toe to toe with those spears. Still, it is much easier to punish compared to most of the other well known powerful weapons. Other then that i try to handicap myself, even though i'm especially good at pvp it is just more fun for me that way. Although if i come up against a formidable foe, i will often bring out the big guns and go all out.

    I've always liked using spears, mostly because I fell in love with the greeks at a young age.

    In my opinion the Dragon Slayer Spear is the most OP. pretty good damage and a "spell" on top of it. Plus it gets the benefits of being a spear...

    Thank you Silver Knight for taking the trouble to fill in the blanks. A +1 for you. I don't want to sound like an old grouch and most of the time I'm o.k. with acronyms as I have a fair idea of what they stand for. It was the DSS that had me scratching my head. But this thread was an absolute deluge of the darn things.

    re: The Dragon Slayer Spear. It is a good weapon but I found it's condition degrades quickly and it costs more in souls to repair it than more conventional weapons.

    Sorry for going off topic everyone, just consider it a bump to get more people into the topic happy .

    Thanks Slake for the +1 my first rep goes to you if I ever get to 100 posts and my view on the Dragon Slayer Spear is the same as yours really, I like a weapon that I don't have to repair too often especially if I'm in a long duel and using the special of the weapon.

    And a thanks to those of you who stopped using acronyms

    Another plus of the Dragonslayer Spear is that you can surprise your opponents depending on where you are fighting...if you are fighting on watery places like the Darkroot Basin cave behind the hydra, Blighttown Swamp, etc. (and shallow water where you don't need the Rusted Iron Ring works too), you can aim the Dragonslayer Spear one-handed strong attack spell at the ground, if it hits a wet surface it will cause a big area of effect attack that I suspect can't be blocked

    Repairing it doesn't bother me. Just carry repair powder and repair every time you reach a bonfire. Also repair with powder before an invader is fully summoned and you should be fine
