    Why did they make crystal weapons?

    Weapons that can't be repaired? Seriously? I can understand their low durability but taking away the ability to repair it is just ridiculous.

    To give you options.

    Its very simple, if you dont like them, dont use them.

    I on the other hand will keep using them when in the mood.

    They're wonderful for critical hit weapons. Buff+hornet ring=OHKO. Critical hits don't do much to durability so they last.

    Crystal +4 is on par with normal +15 weapons. This means you can make those powerful weapons without depending on slabs.

    For shields it's usually higher stability, I think a few medium shields may get close to 80 as crystal. Won't know until I get there :p

    I agree... I never used a crystal weapon

    They could have created a NPC who would be the only way to repair it, tha would be fair

    I don't like the idea of crystal weapons especially when the weapons you use are those you get once per playthrough or have horrendous drop rates, I just don't think it's worth it in those situations.

    but if you have lots of the weapon, having a +15 for general use and some crystal +4 wouldn't be a bad idea

    titanite chunks are really easy to come by, so it's not that hard to pump out crystal +4 weapons. As ublug said, they're as good as +15 weapons. This means you basically have access to +15 of every weapon (although you should only use this path for weapons you can buy).
