    I think i am in love....

    Post by User on Sun Jan 22, 2012 6:05 am

    I am very picky when it comes to weapons, and favorites are minimum to me. The only favorites i have is the Gravelord Sword and the Demon Great Hammer. Other swords, spears, and what not are not very interesting to me. Even the Katanas, whips, pole weapons, crossbows.... many are distasteful to me, a few are ok, but I had only 2 favorite weapons... but then I was grieved.

    While gravelording, a Darkwraith invaded my world. He backstabbed me with lag and killed me with a lightning weapon to my low level Gravelord in the... area i was in. Well, I then met him once again as a white phantom, as I needed Humanity, and an easy way is to help others with their thing. Well after that, I met him again, except he was a Spirit of vengeance (which means I infected him. He made the comment after the second time he killed me that we shouldn't run into each other like this. Well, I made a deal that we go 2 vs 2 against the Spirits of Vengeance, if he invades my world as a red phantom. 5 minutes later, he invades as such. So we wait, and this time I have someone to hang out with while waiting (an hour max with him). We killed one spirit of Vengeance, while the other warped out before combat (he didn't like the idea). Well, he told me that since we couldn't kill anything as a Gravelord, why not just finish the map. I said sure. He had to kill me for a quick draw, so he did (I allowed him that time). Well, when I summoned him as a White Phantom, he dropped some items as a tribute for his... inconvinence and such. He gave me a lot of spare weapons... and one of them I did not know was something I would fall in love with.

    He gave me the Man-Serpent Sword. And Man... I thought it would be like that shitty Demon machete. I was wrong. Not only was it strong, but it was fast. Real Fast. Since the strength requirements for it were the same as the Gravelord sword, it was easy to use bot 1H and 2h. However, I started to never use a shield in many circumstances, because that sword doesn't need one. It's fat, it has a good stability and physical reduction, its move-sets are awesome, it is just so... beautiful. it's like a Demon Great Machete had screwed with a Katana. It was fantastic. It probably will be now my No.1 Weapon with my DGH when it comes to combat. I'll just use the Gravelord Sword if neither can be in play (which is highly unlikely. Bye sword).

    That is cool to hear. I personally have to have the claymore on every one of my characters, I love that sword.

    Unless I'm a mage I gravitate towards any clubs or great hammers ^-^

    I like the MSGS as well. When I need speed more than range I switch to it from my zwei, & it really is a lot of fun to catch someone/something with that 2-handed R2!

    Lol and when I read this title I thought you were going to be talking about Quelaag!!

    The man serpent sword is great! Love the zwei but it's a bit slow and love the claymore, the move set is very versatile! For me im torn between the gravelord sword and the others

    Like the MSGS but currently I actually have a crush on the Moonlight greatsword. Like the moveset and the magic projectile thingy, although I wish it wasnt on both RT/RB.

    I just made my first STR build and the Man-Serpent GS has also won my heart!

    I was planning on getting my STR up there so I could wield the Demons Greataxe, which I still want to do...but it's a relief to know that, if it doesn't work out, my MSGS will still effectively scale with my STR!

    Yes, It has won my heart. My advice? Try out both the Demon great Axe and the Hammer. Try the two for comparison. You might be suprised the difference of quality between the two.

    i love the sword also, mainly because its buffable, i only use fire/lightning resin though.

    the R2 attacks on the man serpent great sword are also good, and have good stun as well.

    Hmmm I might need to actually try this. I've been looking for another weapon I like and it's never happened. I only EVER use a murakumo...

    I'm surprised nobodies brought up the flamberge, or the basterd sword!!!
    I've had very good luck with both.

    I use CMW with a +15 Washing Pole. Its 17 dmg less than a 15+ Uchi with much more reach.

    Give it a shot. When it came to heavy weapons, Murakumo was the only one I'd ever use before the MSGS. It's honestly really nice getting my STR up to 24, and having that actually benefit my weapon!

    I absolutely will. I've tried out the DGA with my SL711 Character and am somewhat disappointed with it (I was inspired to do a Greataxe build after returning to my Greataxe character in Demon's Souls for a few days, but I'm disappointed with pretty much every axe's moveset in Dark Souls).

    Yes, the Axe I find is too slow, the Movesets are not well, and its AOE is seemingly lowers for a swing R1 attack (Which I can do with a sprint attack anyways with a farther reach).

    I took your advise and used a red slab on it considering you're a former murakumo user. It seems a bit faster actually. My str is stuck at 24 (for the murakumo) so I'm limited in what I can try. How is it for stun locking, both for single and double handing? I usually only one-hand weapons and switch between Eagle Shield and a Parrying Dagger. Thanks to you and the OP for the advice.
