    I don't think anything's wrong with the Claymore, except that it's overused, and actually I don't even know that I'd say it is anymore. It's relatively fast, doesn't weigh a ton, doesn't have much of a stat requirement, hits hard for it's weight and stat requirement, is easy to get, has an extremely functional moveset for several situations, outside of being parried, and looks cool. What's not to like outside the fact that everyone says they don't like it because so many people use it? Before the nerf it was fast too. The Great Swords also stunlock fairly well.

    Actually I think the Zweihander is my final answer. It's the only one of the three I chose that's good for both gang bangs and 1v1's, where the other two, especially R'sR, are more situational.
    The nerf was a big benefit to my Claymore use, it made me mix it up and use every bit of its moveset to the fullest. I'm better with it now than before the nerf, and I'm glad it and other greatswords have fallen out of favor as dueling weapons, because now fewer people know how to deal with it.

    Never a bad thing. I think the only GS I've regularly used since the nerf is the Arty Sword, and I honestly can't tell the difference. It'd been awhile before that though. The last one I'd used was the Claymore on my first run.

    Only fourth? big grin

    Still way behind the backstabs threads. Let's pick it up people!

    Spoiler:
    Yeah, this is a repeating topic along with backstabs, ganking, a few rings, how many souls have you lost, favorite character, etc. On the plus side they always get a new group to jump into discussion as they're pretty safe topics (weapons ones, not backstab, ganking or ring topics)

    Too many favorites to choose from. A list of candidates:
    Black Bow of Pharis
    Quelaag's Furysword
    Washing Pole (especially Enchanted upgrade path)
    Dark Silver Tracer
    Tin Crystallization Catalyst
    ...
    ...
    ...
    Drake Sword. There, I said it.

    Black Bow + Feather Arrows + Hawk Ring = extreame sniping. :arrow:

    Quelaage's Furysword is probably on everyones list. It looks awsome and owns NG.

    No way, I think it's ugly. silly

    I can understand why so many people like it, though.

    Zwehi +15 for Tanking Builds.

    I am liking Iatio/Ugi for a dual wield katana build. I somewhat like the Washing Pole but I personally do not like the size of the katana. Personal preference.

    Fog ring isn't nessisary. You can snipe them outside of their agro range without it.

    It does make a difference in a few places, I think. I also used it to run through areas without fighting. Basically, the game kicked my butt too much early on so I learned to be super-cautious/defensive/cowardly. It wasn't until later playthroughs that I finally figured out how to FIGHT through a lot of the sections I skipped. big grin

    I Just play in PVE cuz i have no connections to my console, so i dont worry too much about usefully in pvp or no, and just keep follow what i use to say (thats cool)...so i like to walk around smashing and crushing around the world with Greatsword of Artorias, sometimes Uchigatana, like the way it move, and Black Knight Greataxe.
