    Longsword or Broadsword

    Post by Noob-of-Artorias on Sat Mar 02, 2013 4:32 am

    Soooo...I'm looking to use one of these weapons for my future Magic Miner build (Lightning +5)

    Is there any difference between the two other than the broadswords slightly higher damage?

    I kinda like the look of the Broadsword a bit better (and since the build uses Knight Armor it would fit thematically as well)

    Broadsword has the terrible moveset of some of the straight swords (no pokes, like the Barbed Sword). Meanwhile the Longsword is like the BSS except the second R2 is a upward slash instead of poke. But yeah R2 thrust, 2H roll R1 thrust.

    The broad sword is shorter and I'm pretty sure the r2s are different.

    You could just use the balder side sword.

    I didn't realize the Broadsword didn't have pokes.

    Longsword it is

    I would use BSS, except I don't have the Dex to wield it, the build has only 10 Dex....just enough to weild the MLGS as my main weapon.

    Wait till Billy hears of this. big grin

    I agree with Longsword though, it's much more practical.

    Yeah, Longsword all the way in my opinion. It is an all around good sword similar to the Balder Side Sword. I think it is great that people are considering the broadsword as a weapon now.

    The reason Billy did so well at the FC event was not because of the broadsword. He is just really good. lol. :pharis:

    Also, your avatar cracks me up every time I see it noob. The flips are hilarious.

    You can dead angle with the broadsword and the barbed sword.

    You can dead angle like crazy with the longsword's two handed R2.

    I use the longsword myself and let me tell you it's great for PVP. It's kind of hard when it comes to dealing with spear users but everyone else you've got a good chance of killing.

    Go for the longsword. Is better than the BSS IN EVERY WAY!

    I prefer the Broadsword but agree that the Longsword has a better moveset.

    Longsword over BSS any day. BSS's pokes are good but moveset is not as diverse as the Longsword. Besides, C/C is always better than a B.
