    Good weapons for Dual wielding in Left hand?

    Post by Dutchy on Thu Apr 25, 2013 7:01 am

    I've decided on the Black Knight Sword for my RH but I don't know what for me LH. I wanted another straight sword but I also want to parry. The best I decided on was Priscillas dagger. Ideas? P.S. I don't really like Katanas.

    Hmm, dunno.
    If you want parrying, try the Falchion, that can parry.

    Fury sword has a very fast L1, great for catching bs fishers or as a jab. The pary is kinda long and easy to bs punish.

    Claws has a fast pary but low range for its L1 attack. They also get bonus points for the extra mean look.

    Those are my 2 favorite off hand weapons when I want to be able to parry.

    Personally, I like a shotel or falchion in my offhand. I like the curved sword parry.

    Put any weapon you like in the LH and leave its second slot empty, to parry with your bare fist.

    i'd say curved swords, so jagged ghost blade for str and painting guardian sword for dex teakes the spot imo. the L1 is just too good, makes you nigh unbackstabable with certain weapon combinations.

    If you weren't looking to parry, I would recommend Silver Knight Spear or Great Scythe.


    If you're fighting someone who parries a lot, notched whip can be a good choice, especially if your right hand weapon also bleeds.
    Whip lets you parry your opponent and punish your opponent's parries with both stamina drain and bleed. I think whips are the only weapons with the same attack speed in both left and right hands. Usually you can get two light attacks on an opponent that you know is going to parry. Stamina drain and bleed really help to put some pressure on as well but don't ever use the whip for straight up damage. Whips are more of a parry/shield turtle deterrent rather than a weapon of mass destruction silly


    Otherwise, any curved sword for its stylish parry - you gain 5 style points for every successful parry. Like other people mentioned, fast attack but I would recommend Quelaag's Furysword for its range.

    spears have the length going for them.

    whips have the unparriable properties and the ability to parry.

    hand axe has a quick, wide window which makes it good against backstab fishers.

    if you have the weight... a dragon bone fist, in the off hand its one of the fastest weapon in the game and it can parry, it also gives a passive fire defense boost.

    I'd go with a fist weapon.

    Like a Dragon Bone Fist or a Cestus.

    I'm comfortable parrying with that specific animation, I suck at doing it with anything else, even Parry Daggers and Bucklers.

    Id say parry dagger since the animation is very similar to buckler but any curved sword works well.

    Also love your avatar gif noob-art. Mid rolling in real-life does have practical applications lmao

    I faced a guy three times in a row in the township who had a zwei in his left and balder side in his right. All three times he caught me with a LB, RB, RT, RT combo that killed me.
