    are you sure it swings slower? the r1 feels about the same speed and i think the r2 is a hair faster.

    and yes, the only reason to use it is for the swag factor.

    why oh why did FROM have to screw up its specs so badly.

    Sexiness alone is reason enough to use the dark sword. The R2s are also pretty good guard breakers at minimal stamina cost. The swing speed of the R2s are also very fast, but with a pretty long recovery. It's also damn sexy, lol. It's my goto straight sword, but then again, I'm 90% fashion souls.

    I would rather run the longsword with a quality build. I tend to reserve dex weapons for buff builds, and strength weapons for magic/faith builds.

    You will notice the speed doing after roll or after kick attacks, it is slower.

    Balder Side Sword swings faster, I've demonstrated this on my stream before.
