    Woops, misread the title. Agree with Pendant, the zwei is overrated. I, on a personal level agree with the BSS but I know people who use it well so i cant agree that its overated.

    BSS is amazing I use it Its cool for moveset and speed not Damage.

    I'd say BKGA or Greatsword of Artorias are most overrated.

    That's due to a lack of understanding of the weapon. The BSS is incredible, the best straight sword by a large margin and a contender for best Dex weapon.

    Most overrated is the Zwei I believe.

    I've used it and I wasn't bad with it but I here every one talk it up and for me it just seemed to slow for its dmg especially compared to an iaito and there aren't really any perks that go with it like bleed... thats all opinion though I guess.

    Maybe I should clarify when I say overrated I mean something that gets tons of hype and then I try it for a while and think "meh I've seen better."

    The perk is its ability to nail fools with an R2 combo for counter damage while they struggle to get one swing with their Zwei

    The Washing Pole. And while i love it I see it used too much by some players who just go for the BS.

    Now why do you need that range when thats all you'll do. Other than that its good like most katana IMO but only marginally.

    ^ Not like the BSS can...it has almost as much reach as two handed DSS also every other straight sword has either one poke followed by slash or just slash(which means you dont have much reach) The BSS follows with another quicker poke. Its great for punishing a missed attack. Also if you throw on a leo you will hit for 500-600+ damage. All straight swords are really under rated...The BSS is the most popular sure but only among the unpopular(and under rated) straight swords.

    I use it on two builds(my main ones) one can buff with DMB..which destroys and the other is a 40/40 with leo...which destroys. Not so much in FC cause they all know my moves but random vaders and gankers...i win most of the time.

    But hey! Despite my two paragraphs about how i think youre wrong to each their own. big grin

    Besides the obvious BKGA i would have to go with PGS...people say how great it is all the time...i dont care how fast it is. The reach is crap and i just dont like the way it looks.

    you could say leo ring is like buffing and i think bss is way better with leo ring, that strong attack does rediculous damage.
