    Claymore and Bastard Sword

    Post by Pesth on Tue Jul 10, 2012 2:07 pm

    I'm doing a SL5 run and my main weapon will be a +5 Longsword, but for some bosses and areas i'm going for a 2h greatsword, so the main thing i wish to know is, wich one is more effective for fast kills (not regarding the moveset), or simply: wich R1 swings faster? big grin

    I believe they both swing at the same speed. The difference between them (excluding movesets) is that the Bastard Sword does a little bit more damage and has a little bit less range than the Claymore. If it's just for PvE and killing bosses, I'd say go with the Bastard Sword for that little bit of extra damage and since most bosses you aren't trying to poke with melee attacks.

    To my knowledge, swing speed is the same. Still prefer the Clay.

    In PvE, it's all about looking awesome. In PvP, it's all about looking awesome with 53 poise.

    GAH! My G.Halberd build is under construction. And I've taken a break from playing her since I already played the HECK out of her trying to get to the top rank in the Followers, which I am now. sad
