    Obsidian greatsword vs gravelord sword

    Post by EarthScraper on Mon Mar 11, 2013 6:32 pm

    im not sure what to keep, both are +5 btw. The obsidian sword is cool looking, has great damage, and a really powerful RT (R2) move, but the gravelord sword has toxic(or poison, forgot) axillary, a huge stab attack, and the curved sword move set is awesome, and i have been using it since day 1. somebody help me decide!

    Buff endurance, use both! Put Obsidian in the left hand for the RT Move! (Unless it's two-handed, in which case you do kinda miss out...)

    Could also have it so you can swap between them to catch people off guard.

    If you have a buff, use it on the OGS then swap to the GLGS when it wears off. Use the GLGS at all times if you don't have a buff.

    That's for practicality, just try them both out for a while and pick the one you prefer. If you really can't decide keep them both and just pull out the one you feel like using at the time.

    My opinion? Use neither of them. Your stats are so high, you should be using something like a DGM +15, not something that dosen't scale, and can only be upgraded 5 times. Similar to the GLGS, that has bad scaling too. Unless you have to use one or the other (I recommend the GLGS, since you can't buff) I'd say none of them.

    If you want to stay in the Greatsword class, use the Manserpent Greatsword. It has the best damage potential of the greatswords with your stats. That is if you wouldn't mind using it of course. I'd understand if you want to stick with your 2 original choices.

    But... isn't it the whole point of finding your weapon you love and stick with it? From wanted you to make a 'bond' with your weapon. I think i'll use GLGS for most things, then OGS for bosses.

    Well, good point. I'll be honest. I still like the GLGS.

    Grave Lord Great Sword no question about it. Your stats don't meet the requirements of buffs, so that argument is out of the window.

    Since GLGS has E scaling, you wasted a ton of points in strength in my opinion. Although, based off your endurance you're probably using big shields and various strength weapons which makes sense.

    Obsidian is cool and has a nice pure physical special move, but it doesn't have the 2 handed stunlock that glgs does nor the TOXIC effect. Simply put, based off of your build it is an inferior choice to the Gravelord.
