    I personally dont like the great club, but the large club is really powerful also. The rolling r1s for both of them have somewhat of an aoe and are easy to get massive dead angle dmg. The great clubs 1hand rolling r1 has INSANE range, it kinda pisses me off sometimes. Also the large club 1hand r2 is pretty boss. They are good weapons...

    the reason people dont like suing them is because they have a very steep learning curve and are easy to parry, most people are just lazy and go with whatever is easier. if you know how to use them you can two or three shot most people with them with no need of a buff. i use the DGM and greataxe which are hard to use specially in the burg since every time you attack poeple do nothing but try to roll bs you but if i get one riposte most people usually die from it.

    People usually use big weapons like that to try and stun lock people. The weapons, however, are very slow to attack therefor very predictable and it is easy to dodge them or parry if your good at that. I tried using big weapons for a while when i started pvp, but they did not get me very far.

    GCs can be really powerful. Especially if you play unlocked. The main move that is used is the 2H roll R1, which is not parryable and can be angled during the attack toward your strafing opponent (need to unlock). In the right hands, it is deadly.

    In the wrong hands, however, it is easy to parry and to BS.

    Or spam the ground pound. You're lucky it can't be parried, buttholes.

    Lol why do people parry "big" weapons? I parry the small ones i never parry the huge ones. I can but there is no need to and if i do i feel like I'm cheating. I just let them attack, watch it miss, then smack them a few times. Honestly i find parrying very boring. I learned how to do it now but I find it to strong against big weapons which makes the game extremely dull for me when fighting big weapons.

    ^^ This pretty sums up what I was going to say...I often grab the large club tho cuz of the better moveset with the 1H R2...and the AR isn't that much lower!

    However if I am going against 3 good forest gankers I won't shy away from buffing a GC and tossing on the hornets silly
