    Morningstar!

    Post by berkut on Wed Apr 04, 2012 3:41 pm

    I happen to absolutely love the morningstar, it is my weapon of choice for pve, and I will even try to take a go with it in pvp. I know it is not a very good weapon overall, I even made it a divine +10 morningstar, even though I only have like 30 faith silly.

    I was wondering if anyone else uses this weapon for their toons, I have never seen another player in Dark Souls using it sad

    I rock a +5 Chaos morning star. Its good for breaking through an opponents defence and does about 300 damage per hit, but it's too slow to be appliable for every situation. The bleed effect is negligible since you wont be able to land enough hits in time to trigger it.

    Indeed, one of the good things I find about it is that it is good at staggering opponents for the size of the weapon.

    The bleed is great when fighting enemies like the Anor Londo giants and some bosses (Stray Demon I think?). Definitely has helped me more than once. In regards to damage, I can easily do 300 damage with it per swing, much like Wade can.

    I tried to use it with my faith build initially but its pretty slow and it has terrible reach. I got sick of not connecting with things I was literally right on top of so I swapped it out for the great axe

    im sorry but you must have crappy timing, i know it has poor reach but it's almost three times as fast than the ga when you connect which makes it a beter and stronger weapons since youre hitting at least twice in the same amount of time it takes you to hit something once with the ga but eeveryone has their prefered weapons.

    I've never really liked any of the hammer weapons because of their move sets. I prefer to slash in both directions or stab, I just don't like having it attack from one direction every swing :|

    all weapons get boring eventually, some sooner than later.

    The reason I fell in love with it was because I went down the elevator shaft at the very start of the game at Firelink Shrine. After I picked it up, I thought that it would be interesting to give it a shot. I then dropped down and had to fight skeletons.......Due to its ability to knock them down, I managed to beat 3 of them, doing negligent amounts of damage with each swing. I also noticed that it had a distinct vertical swing. This was great in areas such as the aqueduct between the shrine and the Burg, which I thought was great, since I found the horizontal swings of my broadsword to be limiting in tight environments. After a while it just kind of stuck, and it is easily my favorite weapon now happy

    i use a chaos +5 one with my petrus build. i am able to get by in pvp with it, although another weapon would be nice. I just roll and kick then smash.

    edit: it would be cool if the hammers had a rolling slam attack like the great hammers. maybe a weaker version
