    Scimitar or Falchion? Painting Guardian Sword or Gold Tracer?

    Post by Automancer on Mon Dec 03, 2012 7:03 am

    To all you curved sword users, which would you use? I've been playing with my Enchanted Falchion and it's been kicking ***. But i was wondering why there aren't many people suggesting the Scimitar over the Falchion? Is it because it can't stunlock as easily as the Falchion or is it because of the difference in AR cimparing the Scimitar to the Falchion?

    Also, comparing the PGS and the Gold Tracer, would the PGS be a viable switch for the GOld Tracer? For one, i love the moveset of the PGS but its range is really pathetic. (no offence) GOld Tracer is great too but it can't be buffed which is a real bummer. IS the bleed builup the same between these two weapons? I've already upgrade a PGS to +15 and i'm thinking whether i should upgrade my second PGS to Enchanted.

    Thoughts, anyone?

    EDIT: Should i use anyone of these as an offhand weapon or simply for parrying purposes? Since i heard the window for partial parries are bigger with curved swords.

    Shotel.
    Do not forget it. It's worth the mild loss of damage honestly.

    I never asked for the Shotel because i know how great it is. It's the others that i'm unsure about.

    This largely depends on your stats and enchanting capabilities. If you're using CMW, DMB, or SLB then go Falchion +15 for max damage and good moveset. We all know how it's R1 spam can be deadly.

    If you don't use Int/Faith buffs go Gold Tracer. It may be weaker than Falchion (I'm not sure atm), but it does bleed and fast.

    I haven't mentioned Painting Guardian Sword at all, because while it has great damage and bleed, it's range is so short that most players simply won't let you get close to use it. However, it's a great off hand weapon for parrying.

    That's my opinion as a curved sword user.

    For damage: PGS>Falchion>Gold Tracer/Scimitar(It depends on if you get the bleed from the Tracer or not)

    For weight: PGS/Scimitar>Gold Tracer>Falchion

    For range: Falchion>Scimitar/Gold Tracer(Tracer might be a bit longer)>PGS

    For bleed: Gold Tracer>PGS; N/A for others

    It really depends on what you want. If you want the highest possible damage output then go PGS with some type of buff. If the range sets you off, go with the Falchion instead. If just want the bleed with decent damage, go with the Tracer. If you only have enough room for less than 2 units of weight in your build, then go with the Scimitar if you don't like the range of the PGS.
