    Effective weapons, that really shouldn't be.

    What do you think are the weapons, that despite bad damage, scaling or movesets still kick butt?

    For me, my +5 drake sword is a mystery. It really shouldnt be this good this far in (blightown), but I've yet to lose to a boss using it.

    I think it's more of a mystery that you've got a +5 drake sword when you're only in blight town....

    1 Dragon scale from the darkroot hydra, one from the undead dragon and a further two from the drakes (not farming), two in lower blightown and 5 in ash lake.

    In PvP: spears and piercing swords.

    Both are very precise weapons that deal small damage; they should be easy for an opponent to side-step, and when they hit they shouldn't even be worth the effort of using...

    Only in reality, because of lag, their range, and strike speed, these weapons are practically impossible to dodge. So they still deal little damage, but you can safely whittle down your opponent's health while they can't hit you. And with a buffing spell, DMB, SLB, CMW, they become strong and impossible to dodge...

    Shouldn't be effective, but they definitely are.

    In real life: Any weapon that is really big.
    For example Zweihanders. Perhaps they would be more effective if we had DWGR.

    this. it's the reason everyone has a spear in their off hand and a rapier on the other.

    One handing Smough's hammer is just silly, but I have had pretty decent 'luck' using it.

    Meh, people don't stand a chance against mine. Estoc +15 +SLB, takes about a quarter of their health per hit, and they can't dodge it. Also, the thing with piercing swords, is that they have almost no cooldown after attack, so you can roll away instantly. So they not only hit quickly, but they allow you to get away quickly too. I just roll-attack-roll; I can't be dodged and can't be hit.

    I find it pretty boring, though. It gets really repetitive, and I start to feel silly after a while, rolling around so much!

    Also, I have a Chaos Ricard's +4 in my offhand, to parry, and a Chaos Ricard's +5 in my back-up right hand slot! So when my buff wears off, I'm wielding dual Chaos Ricards.

    ^ They are no longer Ricard's Rapiers, they are Blaine's Rapiers!

    Masks. I'm sure a stupid piece of metal strapped to your face shouldn't give you more energy, life or strength.

    Not a weapon though.

    How about swinging a 14 foot long dual-bladed axe?
