    A list is given here:

    http://darksoulswiki.wikispaces.com/Boss+Soul+Weapons

    from personally i find that many are not as viable as the upgrade paths of regular weapons and can be fairly underwhelming, though some do stand out from the rest.

    Theyre good at lower levels, but kinda useless later. Some of them can be fun but I would not recomend at pvp. Anyway, you will be learning the more you play. good luck

    I use the Chaos blade, it's really fun (yes even against bosses with loads of health and mobs), im not gonna makes you feel awesome killing things with a weapon that saps at your life big grin

    I heard Greatswrod of Artorias was good at high levels since it has alot of scaling.
    Didn't think any others looked worth it. My experiences with the Fury Sword have been good for me, bad for them, the Black knight shield blocks all damage. happy

    restating my initial post what do you think would have been a good boss weapon? ( or could be with some tweaking via a patch or something...) and thank you all for you're responses (first time actually a part of a forum, first post to...)

    You would need really high stats for the greatsword of Artorias to be any good, and even then, by the time you have those stats other weapons would be better.

    I've heard good things about the lifehunt scythe, but mainly for PvP

    Greatsword of Artorias and Dragonslayer spear can be good but both need you to devote your build to them.

    though like i said, usually a +15/elemental weapon will outperform boss weapons if you stick to the 120SL cap.

    Imho, test them all out and see which you like, as long as your good at them they could only have decent damage and you'll be fine. Also have fun with the setup you pick.

    Priscilla Dagger is good times. Very fast attack and you can pepper your enemies with quick hits. Just when you think it's not gonna pay off the 50% bleed hits and kills just about anything. Upgrades with dragon scales to do some decent base damage (for a dagger) at +5.

    I tried getting the dagger last night, but boy she's a push over. I killed her before I realized it.

    Agreed. I got her tail w/ a sliver of health left on her. Took two tries. Seath took an hour.

    Qualeegs Fury sword is pretty decent for pvp. Just have 25+ endurance and have it fully upgraded with 10 humanities and it still will do pretty good damage cuz it swings fast.

    To be honest, I need one. But not because I'll use it. I need it for the achievement. I'm lvl 73 on the Xbox.
