    A +15 is pretty beastly, just sayin', but lightning is quite nice also.

    +15 Shotel only works if you have good stats that scale with it AND if you buff it. Otherwise lighting.

    I ran into a guy with a (I'm assuming) +15 shotel and buffed it with Sunlight Blade. Destroyed me every time.

    Yeah, the Shotel is beastly. Especially during lagspikes, you dodge, he hits you from 5 miles away and there you go, nearly half your health is gone.

    I thought the point of this weapon was fighting turtles

    It is, or at least it should be.

    Don't like the shotel, it feels like it should be a tanks weapon as the idea is to attack head on as the need to sneak round isn't there, but its not big or power full enough to fit.

    I have mine as +5 at min and when I go in as my shadow warrior I use the curse blade in right hand for the work but shotel in left to just batter the opponent whilst waiting for the opening for the curse blade to drop...

    Does the shotel reach further than it is rendered or something? Was being hit by it even when it did not reached my shield at all.

    That's probably lag. The shotel has the reach it shows. Also please don't bump old threads, they just occupy unnecessary space in the top of the forums, I like the fact that you used the search function (unless you went through 1000 pages looking for what you wanted?), but the point of it's that you search answers to your questions in old threads, if you don't find it, create a new one.

    It's okay to bump 2 or 3 weeks old threads, but this thread is from 1 of February.

    I used it on my Lautrec build. Wasn't too happy about it. A bit weak.

    Who is going around down rep'ing people?! Not even declaring their dislike for the post...

    I haven't come up against 1 shotel. Idk how well it'd work against turtlers since it has a pretty short range, and turtlers usually have the estoc or a spear. But I'm guessing you could work around that. I think it should be a lightning and a back-up weapon. Use a long range like the Scythe as your main. Or switch back and forth 50-50. Just keep'em on their toes.

    The reason it would make a decent anti turtle weapon would be because of how the R2 attack ignores shields, thus rendering turtling to be rather useless. I definitely see what you're saying though, it would be pretty hard to get close enough with such a small weapon...

    I would recommend going the +15 route and then using the resin/buff of your choice since that way you can keep scaling.
