    The weapon with the best moveset in the game

    Post by User1 on Wed Feb 27, 2013 5:21 pm

    This is a preemptive answer to any questions which ask, 'what weapon has the best moveset?' Well, there is an answer incoming. And this weapon can be pretty damn powerful too.

    The Longsword. That's right, the starting weapon for Warrior. This weapon is extremely powerful at +15, at 40/40, and, this is the good part. The moveset covers all areas and requirements.

    It has, for 1h, a generic swinging attack, but a strong attack is a long thrusting attack, which works at countering, and in tight spaces. For 2h, there is a downward swing, also works in narrow places. The 2h strong attack is a sweeping one, going from the right to left, and this can hit at least 3 enemies, if used right.

    It can also be buffed. Most of what I have just said is common knowledge, but I am just saying that this is my, mostly biased :o answer. Regardless, I'm sure some may agree.

    I have to disagree here, the BSS rules the straight sword weapon class. No need for 40/40 for max AR, it's longer and it pokes 1H AND 2H. It also DOUBLE pokes. Considering that pokes are the best moveset for PvP due to lag and phantom range, BSS wins.

    The weapon with the best moveset however is the Great Scythe and Murakumo, the 1HR2 combo is beautiful.

    Yeah, but topic ain't about the sweetest move in the game.

    I would like to say that I'm very fond of Priscilla's Dagger's moveset. All r2's and follow ups looks stunning

    edit: and suddenly it struck me that it wasn't about beauty

    While awesome, it has nothing on this weapon. It can't even BEGIN to think about competing against this weapon, and you probably want to know what it is don't you? Well it is........

    I actually prefer the Longsword/SLSS moveset to the BSS. You don't need two pokes, and the 2H attack is great for mixup. I think the Claymore has the best moveset in game personally, seeing as it dead angles, has pokes, has power, has a great dash attack, etc.

    I love invading the Burg at SL5 and beating new players to death with a +0 Whip. I'll let them go through all their flasks and still kill them in the end, like slow and sadistic torture.

    That's a tough one, I would say the greatsword has the best moveset.

    The Claymore has a good attack in every department. It has my vote.

    For the amount of katanas I run into I was a bit surprised by the answers.I used a Black Knight sword religiously for a while but found myself depending to much on the drop first thing in the game. My current darling is the curved sword family.

    The GSOA.



    Seriously, everything about "best weapon" is the GSOA.


    But really, its the GSOA.

    Claymore probably has the highest amount of useful attacks. Or at least is tied for it. 1H R1 is okay, stunlocks. R2 is really nice. Rolling attack isn't bad. Running attack is excellent. 2H R1 is great, used to be greater. R2 is great. Rolling attack is great. Running attack is still excellent.

    Estoc is another contender for, "every attack it has is good or great."

    Spears probably have the best R1 when you take the reach into account. Katanas have probably the best R1-for-the-AR. UGS have the best movesets of all ultra weapons, but that's not saying much.

    Well What is it
    I was referring to Jester saying he loves the whip, it's fairly common not to quote the other guy on these forums if your post is right below his.

    On topic, the best moveset in the game for me has always been the moonlight greatsword. See my thread for awesome reasons why it is awesome.

    I have to agree with the Great Scythe guys here as well. I have the hardest time against great scythes over any other wep in the game.

    Although claymore and its mini version the long sword have excellent movesets, they are all too predictable when I face them. The dead angle range of the great scythe combined with its bleed and higher dmg per hit than the longsword/claymore make it a better choice for users to get proficient at using.
