    Weapon Requirements Question

    Post by Sparda on Sat May 26, 2012 11:16 pm

    More specifically the Greatsword of Artorias. I'm trying to be a "holy" knight since I wear the Paladin Armor...but I'd hate to waste Sif's Soul on it. My question is.... What if I don't meet it's Int requirement? I meet all of them but that. I searched for this info but alas I did not find it.

    Also according to the wiki, using a flamberge gives it bleed. Is that the bleed version OR does it deal divine damage AND bleed...? I am confused. Thanks in advance.

    I checked and saw a footnote saying it didnt as of 5/20/12
    And If you go for the normal, you need the high int since it scales best with Int/Fth, but the cursed version is straight Cs.

    I assume you would just get some (severe) damage penalties. Like wielding any weapon when you don't meet its requirements.

    As for the Flamberge, that's news to me! But, 1. You would be making the Cursed version (don't know if you want the cursed or divine version), and 2. Seems someone edited in a note that it does not, in fact, give the weapon bleed. Maybe it was a pre-patch glitch that's been fixed since.

    Gah, I somehow misread that as Flamberge is the one without Bleed and somehow gives bleed to the GSoA. I'm trying to make a Divine one...mmm I guess it's worth a shot. I'm trying to cap my SL at 120, and pumping it into my Int just for a weapon seems useless since the only magic I use are miracles. I'll just have to see, thanks guys.

    GSoA only shines in higher level pvp, being 120 restricts you between having lower damage for the needed vit or end, or just min/maxing for pure magic with the divine version.

    A flamberge will deal slash damage, and magic damage as divine. It will also build up bleed regardless of upgrade path.

    The GsoA has two things about it.

    Split damage issues, and viability without all of the stats.

    While you won't deal as much damage without say the int, you can still deal 200 damage on a hit, bs with it, and riposte with it. You will however be staggered after every hit since you technically can't use the weapon.

    The cursed version can actually easily out dps the true version even at some higher levels as it deals straight physical damage rather than splitting, so these are a few things you can keep in mind.

    24 strength, 18 dex, 20 int, and 20 faith for the normal one
