    Would a....

    Post by Sparda on Sat Jun 09, 2012 12:56 am

    Claymore be a viable option for someone with a build like mine? 40 End, 50 strength and a Faith near the upper 30's. I used to use a Grant since it fit so perfectly but lately I've been wanting a new weapon. Is a Claymore a good option, and if so m, which upgrade path? I know I ask your guys' opinion alot so I'd like to apologize.

    I'd say go for a man serpent greatsword. Same class as claymore but will give more power due to it's A scaling with strength. Buff it with DMB/SLB and you've got one hell of an option next to the grant.

    With that much STR, try out the Demon weapons. I've heard good things about the Machete, Hammer, and Axe, but I personally can't use them.

    DGM or MSGS. Unless you have 40 dex also MSGS and DGM will out damage a claymore.

    Demon Great Axe and Black Knight Sword are both very good.
    I love the Grant too. But honestly, just try some weapons. You will always be better with a moveset you enjoy. Don;t worry so much about being completely efficient.

    Bastard sword gives 538, plus you get style points, Claymore is standard.

    False. Moveset, range, and looks are better on the claymore, though the BS looks pretty cool too...

    Bastard Sword has class and better looks.
    In this game for me its Looks/style > performance
