    We certanly don't need that :| . The last thing I want to see would be this:

    total deaths: 560

    Bed of Chaos: 40%

    Ceaseless discharge: 50%

    Parish dragon: 9%

    Other: 1%

    Just LOL at this lol. Oh Bed of Chaos , I can not truely describe the hate I have for you. I have 3 characters that may never make it to NG+ because I am avoiding Bed. Also side note I am a huge GSoA fan. It is just unfortunate that it doesnt pass up GLGS in damage until you get really close to a 40/40 build. Which generally means I am using GLGS for atleast 80-90 lvls.

    Also I apologize again for all those weapons I could not mention specifically.

    I love the Grant, DSS, MLGS, Ricard's Rapier, Server, anything that looks classy. Also love the Great Scythe's moveset, and weapons that look dark or cursed, like the Demon's Greataxe and the Lifehunt Scythe. The weapon I hate the most? The BSS. OP and overused.

    my all time favorite weapon is the re-inforced club.
    This weapon beat the game for me on my first ever char. Nuff said.

    I mostly do low Vit/End builds so I gotta go with the Balder Side Sword as my vote. For fun & style I like using different weapon types, notably Lifehunt Scythe and Velka 's Rapier, but Balder is the most reliable for my builds...

    The GSoA, BSS and lifehunt scythe are my favorites but when the DLC come out I can almost certainly say that Goughs greatbow and the abyss greatsword will rate just as high

    Using Gargoyle's Halberd at the moment, LOVING it!! Love the reach and the two handed strong attack! But really have to plan attacks well when usign the Halberd.

    Using it in conjuction with Longsword, my next favourite weapon.

    Loved the Drake Sword, until I learned about scaling!! Still, nothing can beat Drake sword in first few hours of the game, and whats nice you can get it early on in the game.

    Have messed around with the Claymore,which is not bad either.

    Any suggestions re a good curved sword to use? And a Kitana-type weapon?

    Black knight sword FTW! Loved it since it dropped off the parish knight on my first play through, totally built my character around it and I'm using it on my current build too. Putting people on their arses with the 2h R2 is epic lolz

    I used the claymore as a substitute for it on one toon and thought that was a pretty awesome weapon too, especially with DMB.

    PS let me buff BK weps FROM!! XD

    Yes, Velka's Rapier forever! I've been using this on Darks Souls first Relase. I traveled through the burg to the depths and to the asylum again then back to blighttown and to Sens and this Anor Londo where I met my Soul Mate. Velka's Rapier such beautiful craftsmanship Its hiilt so unique and its Blade design so pure. I grabbed in the Painted World of Ariamis and never looked back.

    Velka's Rapier Forever!

    The BK Halberd is my all-time favorite, it's so elegant.

    Though since my first character ended up being a Str/Faith hybrid, I recently discovered the joys of the Demon Greataxe, its scaling is just massive.

    Velka's Rapier is probably my favourite weapon overall. Allowed me to rush through and murder every one of the NPCs past the sealed gate in Darkroot Gardens in less than a minute. (Not sure if that's an accomplishment, but it felt pretty good to be able to farm them efficiently after having trouble dealing with them in the past)

    More recently I have also grown fond of the Notched Whip, and to a lesser extent; the Jagged Ghost Blade. I tried dual-wielding them with Notched Whip in my off-hand, and it actually worked pretty well in NG+ PVE once I got the hang of it.

    No surprise here for me that the majority vote goes to this class.....

    Thrusting Sword type weapon (Estoc)....+15 base Estoc or Rapier in the right hands is a beast in my opinion.

    Well it looks like I am not the only huge GS fan. So far and this isnt even with all the Greatswords listed on the poll , still 28% chose a Greatsword. I should have put Demon Great Machete instead of Bastard sword. I thought I was the only fan on the DGM. Hard to not feel like a Badas$ holding that thing.

    I play DkS for some casual PVP, mostly. So I can't really imagine my fights without an old good Shotel happy And I do love everything that makes fellas bleed. Yep, bloodthirsty I am!

    I got the jagged ghost blade from the ghosts (duh!!) and when I tried it, was not bad, though did do a bit of upgrades on it.

    Nice and fast, but as with any very slow weapon, really have to time your attacks well and keep an eye on your enemy. But at least you dont have to stress about not having any transient curses if you have the blade.

    I voted Zwei because it was my original weapon and I do still love it. But I use everything except for the thrusting swords.
