    How is the Dark Sword's reach?

    Post by Dubscythe on Mon Jun 11, 2012 6:26 pm

    I really liked the Sunlight Straight Sword but I felt that it was too short of a weapon and I didn't like getting as close as I had to with all these BKGA users running around.

    I'll probably be using a wide array of weapons, and since the Darksword's stats are identical to the SSS, I was considering using it.

    It's not any better, the only thing that's better with it is the R2 attack.

    Doesn't have a longer reach? It looks like a bigger sword.

    I think it has longer reach. I tried to use it for PvP but I just can hit anyone with it. Straight Swords are too slow and small. That's why the BSS is so popular, because at least it has good range.

    The Sunlight sword has a way better R2 attack, also according to wiki.

    I used them both and I can destroy people with in PvP. But everyone has different tastes for weapons for sure. Some think when they see you with it; "Is that going to hurt me?" And after they are done laughing I kill them lol. Surprising weapons.

    Compared to the SSS I don't believe there is much difference, if any, in reach between either sword. The Darksword does have a very unique, and arguably awkward moveset at its disposal though, it might be able to catch someone who can't quite judge the timing on that thing just right off-guard.

    Lag may work in your benefit as it pertains to this sword.

    Dont let people put you off straight swords. I may only have tried the silver knight one buffed with SLB but it works pretty nice. chucks out damage faster than my flamberge in exchange for some range and stunlock capacity.

    About the Dark Sword;

    *This weapon is a good versatile weapon, but the sunlight straight sword is better, as it is faster and has a better R2.
    *All the same if you upgraded you SLSS into an
    occult/fire/lightning/enchanted path this weapon is good to have in
    another of those paths to offer different types of damage.

    its actually pretty good. i use an occult one with my paladin build, the reach is so bad though, priscilla's dagger is just as big.

    I tried the Darksword in some PvE earlier, I quite like the R2 attack, I think I might use the blade some when I complete my build.

    http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=2995838114198803 This is the build I use with the dark sword I use mine alot and it is better used when 1 v 1 someone. using this blade requires similar tactics as those guys that get in withing the enimes range and dodge out before they can strike. It is a very useful when two handing as with 2 hits you can stager people with 56 poise for enough time for one more hit then you have to dodge out cause their is not enough time to complete a fourth hit.

    I wasn't gonna center a build around it or anything, I have so many build ideas that I just decided to make a 40/40 "jack-of-most-trades" character. So I'm going to be switching around weapons often.
