    Highest Damaging unbuffed Weapon for Criticals

    Post by IV_Mark_VI on Wed Aug 08, 2012 2:00 pm

    Title says it all.

    What's the highest damaging weapon when doing a Critical (backstab/riposte)? Bandit's Knife?

    Its the Demon Great Ax right everyone? I don't usually use it (well never on another player, or backstabs often), but that is what I've heard to be true. Its damage is too high for the Bandit's Dagger to keep up with, even with extra critical damage.

    Ok, so in the same ballpark, we have what?

    Bandit Knife, Rapier, Demon Great Axe?

    I should have qualified my question. I'm looking to do a cosplay on that ninja, and hidden body/fog ring/hush/Slumbering Ring + backstabs/ripostes will be the name of the game.

    So I'm thinking Bandit's Knife would do the most damage and would be most suitable. Thoughts? Is there another weapon that does more Critical damage that would be suitable?

    Well, Shiva does sell the Demon's Greataxe in his shop, so that may suggest... 8)

    Then I would suggest the Rapier for its low weight, good power, extra critical damage, and ability to hit behind a shield for extra survivability.

    Rapiers aren't really ninja weapons, though.

    They are weapons of a decidedly Western European back-round.

    The Rapier is probably the 'best' choice, but if you want ninja, the Katana's are great, the Bandit's Dagger is fair, but the Mail Breaker, while not a great weapon, is like a Sais, you can duel wield them (for low benefit) and they do extra critical damage too.

    Parrying dagger looks like a sai as well if I remember correctly.

    Good suggestion! Parrying Dagger and Mail Breaker, good idea!

    This isn't a build to be a BS fisher; it's an outright sneak up and stab them in the back hopefully.

    It's a cosplay, and ninja's don't bow and fight fair. That being said, I will only use ninja appropriate stats, gear and spells.

    Fog Ring + DWGR. Should give me a big disadvantage, even if I BS them.
