    GMW is a decent buff. It barely requires any stats. Just 15 Int and use an Oolacile Catalyst.

    ^Yeah, but at SL120, 198 damage will be reduced to practically nothing by almost any armor. Look at your spreadsheet; the lowest AR you had was 275 and, depending on the armor, 200 of it was blocked, give or take. For 198 you're looking at less blocked, but I'd say it'd give about 30 bonus in real damage.

    So yes, it doesn't take many stat points, but it doesn't do much either. winking

    For lower levels, though, it can come in handy. I have an SL80 that uses GMW.

    I adore buffs. I most certainly use them in duels, because while they are fairly OP, they last 1 MINUTE. A good opponent can dodge, get hits in, and then what? You've got a weaker weapon than they do until you can rest at a bonfire, and buffing them in the middle of a fight... it doesn't ever happen.

    FruitPunchNinja wrote:i personally dont like buffs i think they add a ton of dmg to an already powerful weapon. that being said im really only talking about people who use them to their full advantage. most of the time this means a 40 dex build with either dmb or cmw. 40dex/40faith darkmoon tali and then a +3dmb buff with a katana is just insane and op imo.

    if say the person doesnt really have their stats well rounded and say has a +14 claymore with 16str and 14dex and has 30-40 faith and dmb or slb it still does decent dmg but really isnt nearly as big of a threat. but still if thats decent obviously someone who makes a build based around the buff is going to just destroy **** dmg wise.

    Agreed.

    I always buff, and expect my opposition to do the same, should they not, their disadvantage is their fualt.
