    Big weapons and stagger...

    Post by Yesuurd on Mon Feb 06, 2012 6:36 pm

    At the forest today and I noticed something which to all of you should be obvious really if you play alot like me, but I always use either katanas or my bandit knife.Today I went in full black iron gear, grass crest, wood grain, cloranthy and greatsword of artorias.As you know we see more BKGA etc....either in gangs or whatever,
    I fight these guys daily with faster less staggering weapons, anyways I went in with that setup today and
    I didn't loose one fight, to me it looked as if they need not much skill and I didn't either just relying on the stagger and huge damage from my weapon, also every fight was boring for my personal taste.

    Anyways that's my view, how many of you share it and how many fight using these weapons, just curious...

    Thanks.

    I use on my Strenght build and I like it, but definitaly NOT with Dark wood grain ring. This ruins the meaning of "tank, str" builds. Plus, the GS of artorias is not a big weapon and is fast as a claymore. I'm talking about demon's machette, axe, ultra greatswords and great hammers.

    I use big weapons (Zwei and BKGA). If I get the chance, I stunlock. But, I don't spam R1 hoping to get a lock. The biggest problem with big weapons is recovery - you can be easily backstabbed. And, the BKGA is more easily parried than other weapons.

    I use a Demon great Hammer with my mains and characters that can wield it well. Not because it is a big weapon, but because it works so well for me.

    I prefer smaller weapons, little hit here, two there, always dodging out and around, i feel too exposed using large weapons and a lot of those i fight in PvP who arent skilled usually are big weapon users who i just dodge and attack and dont take damage..

    There's no option for me! I use both. I'd say I prefer Dex weapons because I find them more interesting, a lot of Str Weapons tend to have only a couple good moves... But I can't limit my characters to only one style of melee! C'mon!

    No - I prefer to move fast and be slashy.

    You don't even need to go for stun lock with some big weapons. Great club backhand mega-swing after roll catches loads of people.

    No point in discussing skill really, different people have different views on what is considered "skill". Some think that BS chaining is a skill, some think spamming nova is skill, some think poise tanking is skill etc etc

    It all comes down to prefered game play for the individual player, then one can always argue that the community thinks this and that and try to enforce some kind of defacto rules but who am I to tell you whats "skill" or not.

    The only rule IMO when it comes to builds is that there has to be a decent counter to it. This is why TWoP is not so much about skill imo, similarly to how the Fog ring worked before etc.

    It depends on my toon that I'm currently on. Usually I do PvP with my Dex character, so I focus on a buckler with Ricard's Rapier for some Ripostes. However if I do find myself on my Heavy Armor Character, I do use large weapons. I prefer to jab and hit from time to time and eat away an opponent's health rather than get a stagger lock kill, which means I'm practically screwed if fighting more than one person.

    Are you serious? Those are the worst combinations I can imagine. Like a theif with a great hammer or zweihander.

    I like dex weapons. Variety, flexibility, speed. If you want the heavy-hitting staggering weapons there's the great-curved-swords, while you can also use the rapiers and katanas.
