    Butcher Knife?

    Post by Langoulk on Thu Mar 22, 2012 2:47 pm

    So, I love the Butcher Knife, it does decent damage, decent locking, and it looks so hot.

    But my question is...was it a waste of titanite to upgrade it to +10? Should I be using something else for my str build? What are some nice str scaling weapons that have decent speed to them? I use the BKGS when I get bored and just want to mess around, but in times where I am actually focused I like to use something with speed.

    Any input would be great, thanks!

    Nothing wrong with the butches knife at all.

    Good scaling and it can be buffed. If your good at using it, there's 0 reason to change.

    Thanks, I was hoping to hear that happy. I love it so much!

    I am really just a weapon ****, I love using all different kinds of weapons and being familiar with all. I'm currently farming for a man-serpent greatsword.

    I like weapons like serpent GS and Butcher knife, because it gives STR builds a slightly faster alternatives to the huge Clubs axes and swords they are usually associated with.

    Personally though, I think Serpent GS is my favourite, though it's pretty short for a greatsword i must say.

    My input... you have an awesome avatar!

    I'm not sure about the Butcher Knife though. I'm kinda in the same boat, I like it, and it seems like a good endgame weapon, but expert opinions would be nice. It does have A scaling at +14.

    For PvP I would imagine the R2 would be useless, but it can be handy in PvE, plus it looks cool big grin

    I would say, that if you are using/making a strength build then get a bunch of the strength weapons you like to +14 and test them out until you come up with a favorite.

    I like your idea Chumgeyser, I might as well do my own research for my personal preference and I'll get a few different weapons to +14 or such.

    try a pick axe if you find yourself liking the mace, same scaling but different damage type! also for axe weapons i've actually dual wielded buthcer knives and the stunlocking was beutiful, but guarding didn't work that well... if your interest ed or have a faith build also try out the crescenty axe, has good range and b faith scaling. also the golem axe made from the iron golem core is actually a regular axe not a great axe and is pretty fun to use (heavy as heck though.)

    The Golem Axe doesn't have that decent of scaling does it not? Is the AOE attack worth the lack of scaling in your opinion?

    not really, its ridiculously fun to hit people with but you can probably do more with your butcher knife, on one heavy build i used the gol axe as a back up mid range weapon to my chaos great axe.

    My experiences with the butcher knife, at 50 str it does 100 damage less than a man-serpeant GS, both +14, but is faster.

    Thanks mate!

    Yeah, I definitely prefer the man-serpent at this point.

    Thanks for all the input guys, I appreciate it!
