    man serpent greatsword: most people realize it's a good weapon but are blinded by claymores better moveset and/or moonlights pure magical dmg. i think it takes the #1 spot for greatswords: low stat investment for max. scaling, high dmg, awesome moveset. downside is its weight, but as a str build you've already adjusted to that and you'll still fare better than a claymore (quality) build since you have 18-31 more level you don't need to put into your scaling stat. more end to offset the weight difference or more vit for a midroll tank.

    runners up:

    lvl100 abyss sword: put off as a lvl150+ gimmick weapon by most but its reach and dmg @max scaling make using this weapon in a lvl100 duel feel like cheating. 2-3 shotting every opponent...

    jagged ghost blade: a pure str builds offhand curved sword. irrelevant dmg but awesome utility: quick horizontal slash to counter fishermen or combo into after a kick or hit; parry weapons are rare for a str build, this one is the best.

    Most str weapons in general are underrated.  Str weapons 2h get excellent scaled damage with minimal investment, and a lot of them poise break even high poise in 2 hits.  Yes, they carry slightly more parry risk but it's not like you can't kick or pivot bs people trying to parry.

    With minimal investment needed to max scaling, you have the ability to run powerful buffs at much lower than usual SL or gouge vit/equip weight.

    Weapons like reinforced club, mace, pickaxe (leo bonus!), hand axe (if you need more speed) rarely see play but are dangerous weapons and can expose certain builds.

    The claws....ouch ouch! Those things in a good player my god they are powerful. I had a guy do nothing but parry every hit I threw at him. He wasn't parry spamming he waited for me to hit him and he had a lot of kills because he was a gravelord with lots of eyes.

    I think you mean the Jagged Ghost Blade. The normal one is sooooooo bad.

    I love the BSS but I'm not sure if it's used alot. I've never faced any PvPer using it and the only other weapon I see them using that is slightly like the BSS is the EStoc. For some reason more eople like to use the Estoc than BSS.

    BSS is used a lot more than people think. However, it's mostly used on spellsword builds, so it's become rarer since the release of Dark Magic, when people started min/maxing with Enchanted weapons.

    Dragon king great axe.  It's the best weapon for killing anyone with a mid or light shield.  Just corner them and let it rip

    balder side sword? really? back 6-8 months ago everyone I faced had one of these, PS3 version. It was like an infestation, just like the great scythe now

    I love that R2! Too bad its so heavy for low sl builds, otherwise I'd use it more than other ultra great weapons..

    BSS was the most popular weapon I saw just after the DLC hit. The bump in item find made it insanely popular, this lasted up until ENB released a vid that said (in his opinion) the Great Scythe was the best Dex weapon around, then suddenly all the BSS's disappeared and everyone is now using Great Scythes.


    Bl**dy lemmings I tell you.

    He was just talking about PvE, though, wasn't he? He's not much of a PvP'er from what I understand.

    I think he was saying it objectively. Just based off it's stats it was the best weapon for dex builds. If you don't like the moveset (like me) it's going to be a useless weapon to you no matter the stats.

    He just outlined that it's light, has Strength weapon levels of damage, has good range, dead angles damn near on accident, has bleed, is free, has low base stats if you want to make it elemental.

    It's only con was that you stumble if you miss.


    Personally I find it a better weapon for PvP than for PvE as I don't like it's moveset, but there is no denying it's an incredibly powerful tool for wrecking people in PvP.

    I don't use it though, if I'm going to use a weapon with that moveset it will be the Lifehunt Scythe and I'll be RPing a Grim Reaper for sh*ts and giggles.

    IME, the Great Scythe is the best weapon for slab farming. That's the the only thing I use it for.

    On-topic: I don't know which weapon is the most underrated but I'll say one that hasn't been said yet: the Pierce Shield. Technically not even a weapon but still a very underrated piece of equipment.
