    Best Non-Scaling Buffable Weapon?

    Post by Noob-of-Artorias on Sat Apr 20, 2013 3:14 am

    Title says it all, best weapon that doesn't scale, has high damage by default, but is still buffable.

    For me I think it's the Obsidian Greatsword, but maybe I'm not thinking of something.

    I personally love buffing the DKGS, but I know even more people enjoy the DKGA.

    Because of it's low reqs Obsidian is a good choice all around for sl100 and lower build as you can get your buff and the minimums to swing it without lossing out on too much VIT/END

    I can't even think of other buffable non scaling weapons

    It's a shame really, the one weapon that would benefit most from being buffable can't be buffed.

    I think the Drake Sword would actually be a useful tool for higher level PVP if it had the ability to be buffed.

    I agree with Jansports and would say that the OGS is the best choice for a typical build, a very versatile weapon for both PvE and PvP.

    I recently went onto ng+ with one of my characters and the OGS has been my main weapon for this playthrough and it's done me very well. Of course, I will break out a lightning weapon for Seath but otherwise the OGS with charcoal resin for the tougher fights is a great choice!

    Sorry for asking this but I honestly can't figure out what weapon DKGS refers to, which weapon is that? Or is it just a typo?

    DKGA is Dragon King Great Axe

    DKGS I guess is the Dragon Great Sword.

    There exists only 2 weapons that do not scale, but can be buffed: Obisidian Greatsword and Dragon King Greataxe. However, Dragon King Greataxe requires 50 STR to wield and so it can be perceived that its AR is an "imaginary" scaling cap since having less than 50 (Way above scaling returns) renders it useless.

    Obisidian Greatsword wins by default.
