    Whips and over used and under used weapons

    Post by BARZOHD- on Tue Jan 24, 2012 4:25 pm

    Soooo i was just thinking about the most over used weapon and the least used weapon and the least used iv seen is the whips. I just started using them and they are pretty nice actually. Oooooo and the claws too. I started using those on my dex build and they work pretty good. B modifiers and bleed damage adds up. The most over used weapon? I would have to go with quelaag's sword. About 80 percent of the time im invaded or co op, people carry that sword around. Opinions anybody?

    Definitely BKGA handsdown. I mean seriously. Next would be Moonlight GS / Moonlight butterfly horn combo, followed by zweihander and claymore.

    Underused? Scythes would be a prcatical one thats less common. Whips and claws aren't really that effective.

    I see way too many of those popular weapons flying around. you know them. the guys running round with katanas and claymores two handed or with some king of Silver/black knight shield or eagle shield.

    Katana has gotta be most over used. Every single dex sorta build i meet in PvP carries one of those things around.

    Underused I've got to say is hand axes. i've seen whips, I've seen fist weapons. But hand axes are never anywhere to be seen.

    honourable mention for underused go to the regular hammer weapons like maces, warpicks and clubs.

    man serpent gsword is deff underused, its awesome for pve and pvp too, i think ive only seen it twice on pvp, the demon great machete is my fave and underused too, everyone keeps talking how good they are but i never see anyone using them. velka's rapier kicks ass on my int build and ive never seen anyone use it. jy4 pretty much listed all the overused ones except the katanas, everyone has either the uchi or laito.

    Thats a good point. I never see hand axes, maces, or hammers. I dont favor those so i wont be using them. The BKGA i see maybe once or twice a week, and its usually naked people that use it, no joke

    Demon machete is a bit underused because of BKGA wich i on the top 3 most used weapons on pvp

    also some overused weapons are katanas

    and a few underused are straight sword

    Seriously? Man serpent sword underused? I can tell a toon is a str build right away since it either uses a BKGA or that.

    Oh, most common equipment ever should go to grass crest sheild. Not a weapon though.

    All I see are katanas, greataxes, and greatswords. It's nice when I get to fight a mage just to take out some of the redundancy.

    If rapiers did more damage i would use them. Or maybe im missing out on the best rapiers?

    Battle axes are underused, as is the reinforced club, the large club, and the great club. Don't laugh, each of these weapons mangle poise and shield guard. I once repeatedly got my ass kicked by some dude with a battle axe. He dodged, dodged, dodged, and then suddenly he drew me into an endless stunlock (I had over 60 poise).

    Edit: Kats and BKGA are overused. I'm not sure why you haven't run into kats. Literally 50% of my pvp is against kats.

    Most overused, quick hitting weapons like a katana or spear. Most underused, Longswords.

    If people would stop limiting themselves I hope to see this becoming more used, I actually think I got a guy to pick one up for a change after beating him in a few duals. I think it is by far one of the best all around single handed weapons.

    I never see any Mace wielders outside of Petrus builds.

    I also encountered a man trying to punch me with his Pyromancy Glove. When it hit, it actually hurt rather badly. I'd love to see more of that. It was a sight to see.

    if you make that pyromancy glove to a plus 5 ascended, it can hurt pretty good if they punch you

    to bad the masamune didnt make its appearance in this game. washing pole is close but anyone who has seen ff advent children, the masamune was much longer and sexier

    well richard's rappier does 1000 damage when fully maxed out on its R2 combo if you hit the guy with it
    easily parriable and blockable though

    all i see are katanas,daggers and BKGA

    Katanas mostly buffed with either sunlight blade or darkmoon blade or crystal magic weapon

    dagger most lagstabers do because they have higher critical damage

    Bkga do i even have to say anything?

    I had no clue about ricard's rapier. I picked it up and was like yeahhhhhh this looks like junk. But i'll definitely have to check that out for my dex build. And about the BKGA, no words are needed.
