    Darksword, I barely see people use it in PVP but it's actually not that bad of a weapon if you know how to use the attacks to your advantage.

    It's awesome if you have a Curved Sword off-hand, it can combo an L1->R2 amazingly quickly for like 500 damage.

    The Shotel has almost the same AR as the Falchion, its lower by a smidge. But it has the special R2s and it's R1s are the same as the Falchion's meaning you get the full effect of your buff dps. Only you can mix up the R1s with R2s to not only circumvent shields, but also throw off parry timing.

    I see people use it specifically when someone is turtling really hard, but I think it's a fine weapon to just use in day to day life. it's a slightly weaker falchion and it's R2s are very useful.

    The kick with Orange Charred Ring. Gets a boost with Power Within. I kill starting players with this.

    But to be serious, I think poison is pretty underrated. Not a weapon, but I like to see it as one. Puts some serious presure on opponents who can't heal (at the moment). They can lose their cool, especially I you sacually keep walking away from them, but won't give them a chance to heal :razz:

    I never see anyone using the original Artorias GS's or Gwyn's great sword, they're my favorite weapons in the game, so good!

    Aside from that being a very logical weapon to use in combat. I say either the broadsword or the halberd. I have no clue why but the horizontal swings mess me up with the broadsword and the halberd has been netting wins from many fights. I would say the balder side sword but I have been facing so many of those recently.

    Enlighten me. Isn't the bandit's knife still better? I mean, a +2 chaos bandit knife can do anything a +2 chaos dagger can but better right?

    I Thought everyone knew about the dagger, about six months ago it was the flavor of the month, everyone made a dagger build. I would have to say its the reg scythe that is most underrated,strongest dex weapon iirc.

    I think the notched whip is one of the most underrated weapons. If you off-hand it and put it with (another underrated weapon) the Barbed Straight Sword, you'll have constant bleed build up. If you put rotten pine resin on the BSS then you got yourself a deadly combination that is very viable and can make less experienced players panic when they see two status bars rising
    Its great (^-^)

    I have 11 dex, and 11 str. There's not a lot of weapons you can use at those stats. I use a lightning longsword, a lightning spear, and a chaos dagger. I know the Leo Ring only increases physical damage, but it still gives a bonus, which can be huge at soul level 11. Its my low level sunbro helper build.

    I thought about going to soul level 12 just to have 12 dex, but it just doesn't seem necessary given my current set up.

    For future reference for the community having the acronym "BSS" probably isn't such a great idea since it could mean Balder Side Sword and Barbed Straight Sword

    You know I think the painting guardian sword has more use than I think it does. The range of it always confuses me when I see it being used. I wonder what is can do in a strong build?

    A former (who will be back for DS2 I hope) named B1A1NE always talked about his PGS and whip set up, always sounded pretty cool.

    Blunt weapons in general.

    Seriously. i have a divine mace on a toon with only 12str and it still DOUBLEs in damage when it's 2 handed, and poise breaks like a *****.

    Have to say though my pvp experience is not large with using blunt weapons
