    The best ultra/great weapons

    Post by User1 on Wed Feb 20, 2013 8:01 am

    Just thought I might as well compile a list of what, in my opinion, are the best ultra/great weapons for PvE and PvP:

    • Demon Great Machete: Damn, this tore the 4 kings apart on NG+.
    • Zweihander: An easy to obtain, pretty powerful weapon, with nearly quality build weapon scaling.
    • Large Club: This thing does phenomenal damage at 50 str, +15, buffed. It poisons too, so it has a good way of dealing with people with shields.
    • Demon Great Axe: This is slightly more powerful than the Large Club, and still, very good in attack speed.
    • Stone Greatsword: Very powerdul, can be buffed, has divine qualities, and has a built in TWoP 2h strong attack.
    • Grant: Real powerful if you go 50/50 on faith and strength. Has a fast WoTG on 2h strong attack, which is more powerful than WoTG too.
    That's all I can think of. Please let me know what you think, and if there are any I missed out, that are your personal favourites.

    Greatsword dangit. Its R2's plus Leo Ring can give incredible damage, possibly one of the highest possibilities for single hit damage.

    Uhhm, the stone greatsword isn't supposed to be buffable. In fact, buffing it creates a game-breaking glitch that makes the TWoP aura do elemental damage D:

    Stones weapons are so weak, the greatsword and greataxe are so damn heavy and so weak its not even funny, the axe at least has the best move set of the axes but the ar really sucks, msgs has more ar which is just dumb. I would pick the reg greataxe over stone axe any day, the move set might not be the best but that thing hits hard. I would pick the msgs over stone gs too.

    BKGA is very easy to parry but deadly. I like it.

    I find the BKGA very underwhelming after the nerf. It only does the same damage as the Halberd now, and the Halberd is a far superior weapon in general. BKGA is good if you want to break a lot of poise with a fast attack.

    Not Easy to parry in the right hands.

    Replace Zweihander with the Greatsword. Pretty much the same thing, but with slightly higher weight and requirements + a much better moveset. The zweihander moveset has been pretty much memorized by the entire community due to it being used by every min/maxing Vit build that can't afford to use anything else :/

    I agree with all the Greatsword posts.I just tried it out for the first time,it is way better than the Zweihander.

    its actually kinda weak after the nerf, it hits for about 300 now which is really weak, DGM is king now.

    Zweihander is probably the best overall Great Weapon. It is the lightest of all Great Weapons. It also has the fastest recovery speed of all Great Weapons. It is also Enchantable. It also has low requirements, making it an option for elemental paths. It also has one of the better movesets, having a vertical swing that moves forward.

    The Greatsword is not really better, the Thrusting attack is slow and the same effect can be replicated with a rolling R1 from any weapon. The Zweihander has much more practical applications in general in terms of PvE and I'm pretty sure no one is going to be reckless with a Greatsword-user.

    Actually, Zwei and Greatsword have the exact same recovery times.

    Greatsword is superior to Zwei, but has a higher skill requirement, both stat-wise and from the user. The greatsword can easily get 1200-1300 point blows with a 27/40 build and a leo ring. It's like... Balder Side Sword V2.

    Yes, greatsword + leo is amazing, particularly if you buff a greatsword +15. You can also exploit the dragon roar to simultaneously give yourself a damage buff, and stagger your opponent for counter damage R2s.

    My preferred club is the great club; large is also dangerous but I love how the great club's two handed R2 clips through almost anything. You can kill people through closed doors, walls, and even diagonally through a 90 degree corner if they are waiting out of sight to ambush you. It's how titanite demons must feel all day long.
