    Best Quality Straight Sword?

    Post by Eisen on Tue Jun 18, 2013 1:42 am

    I've been deciding mainly between Barbed Straight because of it's bleed, Broadsword because of simplicity and Silver Knight because of the damage. I know Balder Side is very good as well but I consider it more of a Dex weapon. So, which one would you recommend for quality (Str+Dex) builds?

    Going to have to go with the Longsword.

    It's the bastard child of two great weapons: The Broadsword and the Baller Swag Sword.

    It has the stabbing R2s for one handed, and the slashing R2s for two handed (why I say this over BSS is the fact that the 2h R2 actually takes LESS STAMINA than the 1h R2, even though it does more damage and is harder to dodge).

    Longsword.

    Longsword or Broadsword. 

    I'd suggest longsword myself.

    You can literally compare them with your eyes. It is significantly slower than the Longsword.

    In fact, there are many straight swords that are slower, including the Silver Knight Straight Sword, the Drake Sword, and the Dark Sword.

    Sunlight straight sword - move set similar to claymore when using two hands. Simply awesome weapon

    Broiadsword, find the move set better in pvp.

    *Claymore is similar

    Straight Swords had that moveset long before the Claymore did.

    Since you mention the Barbed Straight Sword, I assume (don't mean to) that you intended this for pvp?

    In regards to pve. The Sunlight Straight Sword and Broadsword would be my picks. I've seen no evidence the it is slower than the Longsword.

    However, I also don't doubt Dibs too often. If it is slower, I wouldn't say its comparing rabbits to turtles.

    If for pvp, then Barbed Straight Sword and Broadsword all the way. BBS for intermediate and Broadsword for advanced.

    Someone like reim or another experienced played will simply roll through the bleed 80-90% of the time I'd imagine.

    Lol @ Animaaal - Mate your reasoning is just The Light Fantastic: brilliant!

    I wouldn't do Dibs the dis-service of doubting him at all, so if he says moveset came before claymores I will bow to his infinite wisdom at this juncture. Prostration All Hails Dibsville! Joy biggrin

    Whichever you think looks the best, they're all pretty much the same.

    Demon's Souls Claymore didn't have the moveset, the Demon's Longsword literally had the current Clay attacks, even the 2h R2 was the spin instead of the run forward.

    Straight Swords had the moveset 2 years before Clay did.
