    Smough's Hammer 1H moveset?

    Post by Thundergrip on Fri Dec 28, 2012 8:03 pm

    I'm finishing off my Smough cosplay build, and I noticed that his Hammer is definitely not "meant" to be one-handed. It's str requirement is 58, meaning that you can just barely two-hand it at 40 str. My str is at 40, but I'm willing to shell out the remaining 18 points to one-hand it, if it's worth it! (or even if it would just be fun).

    The build is for PVP and Co-op mostly.

    Does anyone know what the 1H moveset is like, and if there's any point in dishing out those other points? I know it wouldn't make much of a difference damagewise because of diminishing returns.

    The 2H moveset consists of a short-ranged swing, and a leap forwards with a downward smash.

    Oh and by the way, I highly recommend a tank-y Smough build for you bored DkS players out there. His hammer is an absolute riot to use.

    Its really nothing special one-handed.

    The 1h r2 is a 180 sweep that can catch people by surprise occasionally but I would just rock it 2 handed personally.

    Its a great weapon in my opinion, so damn heavy though :x

    the r2 sends people flying backwards, not sure what the poise break is though, still though its handy to be able to access your shield at all times...

    Basically this. Imagine it's 1-handed R2 to be like the Large Club's 1-handed R2. Only without moving you forward and with slower start-up and recovery. And obviously the R1 is no different than any other Great Hammers' R1.
