    Chaos Blade advantages?

    Post by Dutchy on Sat Apr 27, 2013 12:49 pm

    I have never used this, but it sounds a bit silly. I mean giving up 20 health just to hit their shield. Is it a pretty strong Katana or something? Also, what good would come of Dual wielding the server and chaos blade?

    Very strong base damage, with 40 dex on a build with no buffs, this is the way to go.

    Most builds that take advantage of this weapon have too much vitality for 20hp a hit to even be bothering much, and kills can happen so fast, it can have sometimes no effect.

    I've never found much advantage to using the server with Chaos Blade. I have used replenish with good results. Yes, the CB kicks! I have used it for a while now and the blade has not really let me down. Sanctus is another option if your trying to off set the vit loss. Now days I just keep track of when I need to heal and fly with out a compensator. So Server not so much as Sanctus or replenish.

    The chaos blade is just longer with slightly higer damage. If you want a useful right trigger or r2 use one of the others. I use the chaos blade just because i prefer the slightly longer reach though its not necassary.

    In most cases my chaos blade only did about 30 more damage than the uchigatana. So considering the fact that you take 20dmg youre only coming out 10dmg on top compared to the uchigatana. Though like most people said the 20dmg thing isnt a huge deal

    I've never really used Chaos Blade, I always prefer Iaito for the better moveset and it can be buffed. Plus it weighs less. I've only seen 2 people ever who actually got killed by their own Chaos Blade.

    I've never used it, but am aware of its potential.

    -Excellent reach.

    -Low vit builds can use the Red Tearstone ring pretty well with it.

    Its considered one of the best, if not the best, weapons in the game from what I hear.

    Some guy's old setup used Chaos Blade because he could exploit it into getting him into RTS mode, then use the Greatlord Greatsword for massive pure physical damage. Quite an amazing setup he had.

    The blade is very powerful against certain builds. I faced some who try to have the 20 hp drain kill me only to have it backfire by the bleed. The blade with the right stats hits very hard and even lethal for parries.

    Honestly, it hits much harder than it seems like it would. Don't think about the AR when you're using it. It's MUCH stronger than it seems.

    I only use the Chaos Blade on the offhand when I'm deadnaling the Dragon Roar. Thing hurts.
    Many people say "Chaos Blade awesome!", but I rarely see it like that. The 20HP drain is large enough to be noticeable by plain sight and it still drains if your opponent phantom dodges. Consider that 5 hits drains 100 HP.

    Bleed isn't all too helpful considering most people dodge it. The one thing it has going for it is the AR, but I would prefer the Uchigatana for having a kick combo in the main hand.

    Advantages:

    1. Highest damaging katana.
    2. Longer range than uchi and iaito.
    3. Has high riposte damage.
    4. 20 hp loss can aid in RTSR activation
    5. Highest bleed build-up of the katanas.

    Disadvantages:

    1. Limited moveset. (R2's are pretty much useless)
    2. 20 hp loss per strike.

    Conclusion:

    Chaos blade is best blade. twisted

    The r2 if timed right I find good to break the poise of bs fishers with light gear.

    It's funny to get the occasional 2h-r2 also.

    Katana SMASH! silly

    I have people charge me right when it hits. I get hit but they smash into the floor taking more damage.

    That is a disadvantage of the Blade. The fact it smashes them to the floor means it is clearly so blunt it can't cut through a skull. Chaos Blade UP needs buff.

    Yeah I'd probably use that move more if it sliced my opponent in half...
