    What would be the best Greatsword for a 30/40 build?

    That is my build, Dragonslayer Spear will be my main weapon and I wanted to back it up with a Greatsword. For now I have the Greatlord GS there, but I was wondering if there was any other that would be more effective.

    EDIT: Yes this will probably be my last build thread for awhile, I finished ME3 so this is my main project now.

    Why only 16 fth? Why not 24?
    I believe the GLGS is the best choice for a 30/40.

    Perhaps a flamburg for the low weight? since it'll be your backup.

    Why not just go with the straight up Greatsword? That thrust attack can really put the hurt on dudes.

    i would go with either the msgs if youre gonna buff and the clay if not. the the clay has better ar and a better move set than the msgs, i personally prefer the msgs.

    Is 22 Lightning Damage really going to make that much of a difference?

    I was thinking, since I have 40 Dex, what if I used the Murakumo?

    Wont you bounce off enemies though without meeting the fth req? And if you can dead angle with it go the mura. And its still a pretty good sword besides that. It does give you 36 more AR.

    The Dragonslayer Spear doesn't have a faith requirement.

    Noooo don't spend any points in Faith!!! After 20 Faith, DSS gets an horrible 2 AR per point scaling. Lower it to 9 and lower your Str to 24 or 27. Or 28 for a Murakumo.

    Murakumo is also a pretty beast sword with 30/40 although its a curved greatsword.
    I got a 24/40 build and it does like 560AR big grin

    Murakumo/flamberge. flamberge has bleed and weight. over the GLGS hits just as fast and only marginally less damage if normal upgrade path.
