    i've found my new love

    Post by Halicarnassis on Fri Mar 15, 2013 5:03 pm

    I'm an avid claymore user - I truely love the thing! The move set is superb, the weight ideal and the two-handed roll and poke is sublime! I have tried a few builds and even went all out dex; katanas, daggers etc... but its just not me... I like a little bit of weight behind my swing and some variety... But today I got stuck... I wanted to fast roll - only 33 END and that means minimal armour while holding a claymore, talisman, shield and a bow.. or, heaven forbid; Avelin! I guess this came to light after last weekends SL55 tourny where all I could carry was a talisman and the claymore given the armour I wanted to wear. So... this morning I decided to diversify and try and few other weapons; hammers, curved swords, straight swords.. seeing as I was planning on a little SoV invasion I needed to be lighter. After much deliberations I believe I have found the one... Not even Neo could have disagreed... sleek and light, perfectly balanced, a swing to throw your jib off kilter and a handle big enough to wrap two hands around her... Thank you for falling on my blade in Lost Izalith, Solaire; you Beauty!
    I present to you the Sunlight Straight Sword: The exact moveset of the Claymore, yet lighter, balanced to perfection and a swing that belies her stout persona! I do believe my darkened days have finally seen the setting sun... Just keep this to yourselves - dont want every noob and ganker taking advantage of my new toy!

    It is brilliant! I was thinking barbed straight sword for the bleed... but it just doesnt have the thrust attack that I am so fond of!

    i actually like the broad sword the most as far as straight sword move-sets go. if only it had better damage.

    Broadsword is my favorite straight sword as well.

    I'm glad to see there's a rise in straight swords.

    SSS can be buffed. Also, it swings slower than the longsword. Try it.

    Longsword is a good standard weapon granted but i think the SSS feels like it has more reach. Call me crazy!
    Broadsword.. ? meh.

    The SSS does have more reach and damage, but the Longsword swings faster.
