    Demon Great Hammer build?

    Thinking about making a DGH build. You don't really see too many of those around. I'm guessing because of how slow it is. Anybody ever make a viable DGH build? Or is it just one of those weapons not worth the trouble.

    I have made two so far.
    A faith, tank build, with an occult theme that I nick-named "God-killer" http://mmdks.com/2owt
    And a low leveled version that has wrecked some peoples day, not faith though. http://mmdks.com/2qgn

    Not really much to this one, diminishing returns after 46 STR, which is what you will want since the 1hr2's are pretty much awesomesauce. Boom.

    It looks awesome and deals a lot of damage. But it's extremely heavy and has high requirements. I would recommend using great club instead unless you really want to use dgh.

    you don't see many DGH builds because the Great club does more damage and weighs half what the DGH does.

    FORM really did a poor job balancing some weapons.

    imo Poise break should be directly related to weapon weight, not weapon class.  say Weight x 3 =  poise break per hit

    Would make Smough's hammer actually have a purpose.

    best looking weapon in the game imo but its ridiculous how it gets outclasses by the rest of the hammer, maybe something like this? http://mmdks.com/2qhb

    Not worth the trouble. Look at RANTs build, and compare it to this http://mmdks.com/2qhi and you'll see why nobody bothers with the dgh.

    thing is I think it actually has the fastest moving r2 on any G hammer (besides the dragon tooth which has the same move), all the other g hammers r2's have a longer wind up. but no one seems to use str weapon r2s except str guru's (like rant) or people who experiment to much (me), mostly people spam the rolling attacks or bs fish...

    And then look what you can do stepping to the large club from the great club http://mmdks.com/2qja

    I actually like the Large Clubs R2s more than the other great hammers.

    It's perfectly workable to make a build for the Demon great Hammer, it's just got very very close parallels in the large/great clubs which are noticeably nicer on the build side of things due to their lower weight and the fact you don't have to go past the stat scaling soft cap just to swing em 1h.

    Hmm looks do able, but maybe not worth it. I'll give the large club a shot. I love the R2's with the large club. Never have tried the great club.
