    Best greathammer?

    Post by Wade_Wilson on Mon Feb 13, 2012 5:44 pm

    Whats the best greathammer for a pure strength build? I know there arent even that many greathammers in the game, but which one out of the few is the best?

    Smoughs or Great Demons hammer I think. Smough+5 is 450 base with D scaling and Great Demons +15 is 345 but with B (should it not be A now?) scaling.

    Yeah but smough's hammer needs 58 strength which is a feckin ton, and I dont even know how you get the demon greathammer, I've never got it before on my own.

    Go to Snuggly the Crow and drop a Sack Mask, found on the butchers in the Depths, or kill the Asylum Demon when it spawns rather than running and fighting it later. Choosing Firebombs as your gift at the start can allow you to easily do this, or at NG you can kill it. Those are the ways to get a Demon Hammer.

    Killing the Ayslum Demon the first time you meet it, this can be easily done in NG+, also requires 48 STR. There is the Great Club which at +0 has a little less damage than the Demons hammer plus B scaling, and only needs 28 STR but it doesn't have the +15 stats.

    I haven't tested out the scaling myself, but I know I've been really hurt by that damn explosion ability it has.

    Yes, on my main with STR/DEX/FTH 65 and 40 INT it's beating any weapon I have on scaling including my GS of Artorias, and tends to oneshot most fodder in NG++, in a PvP setting unless the other person isn't flipping around and not very responsive it may work but otherwise have a backup.

    2handed R2 is like WoG but seems a bit stronger, roughly 30% in my experiences.

    The great club has the same AR as the Demon Great Hammer, with the same exact moveset. It's also half the weight, and has half the requirements.

    Having said that though, I personally use the Large club for PVP, as it sacrifices a few points of AR, for a moveset that is infinitely better, and also has poison on it to pressure your opponents. Combine it with Poison Resin, poison knives, or poison arrows on a composite bow, and you'll have them making mistakes in no time.

    You are asking the right man. I use Greathammers, all the time.

    By far, the Demon great Hammer is, by far, the greatest I have ever used. Although I have a grant to rival it, the Demon Great Hammer has a great length, an easy moveset to comprehend and like, and can, honestly, destroy anything when have enough strength and + 15, which I get it to + 15 before even doing Sen's Fortress (it is possible, I have done it 4 times). The Demon Great Hammer is a Great Weapon to love. Trust me on this one, cursing it with an elemental attack would discriminate against it. If you have a faith and strength build, don't give it an elemental build, nor a grant. Even if youare an intelligent and strength build, buffing it with Darkmoon Miracle, Sunlight Blade, or Magic Crystal Weapon, you will be having 'jolly cooperation' with your enemies.

    Smack, Smack, Smack! When you trust them onto the ground with the two-handed R2 attack, in which is almost anyone you face without smough or havel armor, the you can imagine their spin breaking under the mass. The best Great Hammer to emphasize such joy.

    I did. The moveset is just terrible, sadly. Should have went to the Demon Great Hammer.

    in terms of damage the great axe is the best. in terms of damage and move set the great club is way better becasue of the reach it has, i personally like fighting with the demon hammer cause i love it so much, i think it looks so cool and menacing. also try the demon great machete.

    lol i didnt mean to insult you and not really spamming, more like only using the wide arc swing. and like twinkly said, its up to you to use whatever you feel comfortable with, find something you like and if youre good with it a 20 diff in damage wont be much of a differnce. youre supposed to have fun with whatever youre using, i find that the more fun i have with whatever im using the more i tend to win, thats how i feel about my machete.

    Well, that is how I feel about my Demon great Hammer. it feels right, and it is fun... don't know How I can spam R1, that seems like a TERRIBLE idea of all things. To each their own.

    +15 Demon Greathammer it is. However, until I get the requirements for it, I'll use the Great club. Praise the sun!
