    I've heard that a lot of other players really like the GS - I have a +15 GS but have not had a chance to practice with it that much. For some reason the attack movements simply have not grown on me. It seems GSs dead-angle attacks are just that - deadly. Exactly which type (R1, R2, running R1, etc) of attacks do you use most ofter with this weapon? What has been your success rate on delivering the kill blow during PvP using dead-angle attacks (or getting any succesfule dead angles hits)?

    Any information you can provide would be helpful. After I fully master the movesets of the Murakumo I plan on using the GS alot during PVP.

    The highlight of the weapon is the R2 sweep. One hand and two hand techniques have pretty much the same moveset. As far as any angles go you will cause hits at any point of the arc which is considerable. One of the things I haven't seen anyone comment on too is your ability to change attack elevations. If you have the camera looking down it will scrape the floor and up will go higher. In other words, you can have the entire arc in a lethal zone. One of the benefits is with rollers as the animation covers a lot of area and I often hit people as they come out of a roll. Sometimes as they are nearly behind me for a backstab. I hear a lot of bad press on the R1 attack but I find it works better than most weapons when you have an opportunity to be aggressive. If you land a successful hit it recoils quickly back into position so you can keep hacking at people. I invaded in the forest once and met a dragon and a havel with mask of father/lightning zwei. The dragon guy had to flush me out as I just circled a tree with the havel. The zwei bounced off the trunk while my scythe hit him around it. It also has one of the best running attacks in the game (2H R1 attack). The attack is super fast and continues moving forward as it strikes (jumping attack). I have finished some runners off nicely with this. I have also used it to charge people looking to evaluate my technique.

    i hear a lot of good things about the GS and it’s dead angels so i decided to try it out. but for me it just doesn’t click. its R1 attack is easy to dodge, just walk to the side. it’s jumping attack and R2 attacks leave me open. but maybe it’s just me other people seem to kick *ss with it.

    The time-lag between me pressing r1 and the attack carrying out is too much for me. If I'm too close it usually ends up in a BS. The fire power and sweeps is really good, which is amazing, but the speed is more than enough to put me off.

    I've just tried to use mixups of jumping attack and sweep.

    Timing is crucial to making r1 work.

    It's very to easy to dodge, and if you dodge at the same time the last hit that fill up your bar hits you, the bleed bar resets and you get no damage.

    I've seen some R2 spamming but only come across a few scythe users. I am quasi turtle with some mobility. I try to evaluate my opponent and sneak attacks in. When I spam it's R1 because the stamina use is WAY less, the attacks are faster and bleed builds per hit. Disclaimer, I have rarely gotten bleed build up enough to trigger in PvP but I have caused a lot of opponents to panic and change their fighting style. My favorite are the ones who try to run away.......Mwah ha ha haaaaa!!!

    Brilliant dead angle attacks make this a great weapon though spamming R2 makes you susceptible to parries. Oh and with buffs this becomes amazing.

    Very good scaling + Dragon roar + red tearstone + sunlight blade = insane damage

    Used it and the Lifehunt in PvP for a little while. Thought it was okay, but it's not really my thing.

    Never used it, but the first time I fought against it, I got beaten to a pulp.

    In my opinion the most effective attack is the running 2H R1.

    The blighttown arena is probably not the best location for this weapon. The arena is quite small. The GS shines in open spaces.
