    ENB's best Dex weapon

    Post by Sentiel on Wed Mar 06, 2013 6:09 am


    It's a good video I'll give ENB that, but I have to say that I'm a bit dissapointed that he didn't mention a lot of Dex weapons.
    Scythe, Gargoyle Tail Axe, Flamberge and more just aren't there.
    Flamberge is a VERY good weapon, so I wonder why it got skipped. Same to rapiers, he only mentioned Ricard's. Where's the rest?
    It also seems that the video is purely PvE oriented, because when it comes to PvP a lot of the things change.

    For example, he said that Chaos Blade's extra damage isn't worth the 20 HP damage on hit. That's true for PvE, but in PvP it's exactly that extra damage that makes it good. Not to mention higher Bleed build up, longer range and misleading swing arc, thanks to it being slightly more curved than other katana.


    Well, I do agree that Great Scythe is a good weapon. Range, power, speed, bleed, buffable. It has it all. Although it requires space and eats Stamina like a hungry Adjudicator, it's still awesome. One of the best weapons no doubt.

    Don't think ENB is a fan of the heavy\slower weapons. gargoyles is good but the scaling isn't A on dex like the GS, same with the scythe. He's going mostly on damage output, movesets don't seem to brought into it.

    But all of those weapons do a very decent damage. :|

    He'll probably put those in with a quality build even with the B dex scaling. Looks like he just went with anything with A or better scaling. As for the GS i like it but not a big fan of its basic R1, miss and you're screwed.

    I have a 28/45 quality build and I would like to see a better weapon than a Claymore for it.

    Yeah i love my claymore too tried a strength build after so many dex or int builds in demons and dark but couldn't get used to the sluggishness of the main str weapons and so eventually starting putting my remaining points in dex for the CC scaling of the claymore. Basic halberd with leo is pretty good too in a qual, i know the clay R2 counts as piercing but you pull off the halberds pierce more often.

    Sounds like a job for the Murakumo.

    He was testing with 16 strength. 16 strength only allows you to two hand flamberge which is why he didn't cover it.

    im pretty sure he was taking about pve, i think it is a good weapon but it's very easy to punish and kinda easy to parry if you know how, even those dead angle attemps.

    I admit it, it was made for Murakumo. It just ended up using all sorts of weapons, not only Mura.
    Geez guys.

    Flamberge

    I was looking at this http://darksouls.wikidot.com/flamberge
    it says 'only needs 16 strength when two-handing' which I thought implied you need more than 16 to one-hand
