    My favorite is the broadsword. I fell in love with it when I did my starting level run and never looked back. I'm thinking of making a dedicated pvp build around the broadsword. big grin

    I'll be the first to admit that it's not conducive to pvp, but I tend to pull away from the norm. silly

    Also, isn't the broadsword the type of sword used by Maximus in Gladiator? If so then I like it even more now! big grin

    Yeah, broadswords were the most popular sword used in the roman empire, both by soldiers and gladiators.

    awww man...that is also a really awsome sword! I cant believe i left it out....Well for future replies and yours i'll keep and eye on it and tally it up later. I cant edit the poll. But in the mean time cast a vote anyway. The rare Balder Swag Sword is used by everyone with a high Dex build, So which underused straight sword would you pick?

    My vote goes to the Sunlight Straight Sword. All the versatility of the Longsword on top of the most damage out of any of the straight swords happy

    Dark Sword ftw.

    Also, Astora's Straight Sword is a great weapon for early game str/faith builds.

    I like the Dark Sword for coolness. I think it might have better reach too but I'm not sure of that.

    yeah it is pretty sweet. I especailly like the 1H R2 in a two hit combo it has a BadA** animation. It really shows the swag of the weapon while at the same time it opens you up for a punish if not careful. weapon is all about timing and placement since the range is short.

    its exactly what it says. The long sword scales a "C" in both strength and dexterity. On a 40/40 build you get great scaling. the 1H R2 is a thrust so using the leo ring boosts the counter damage when the thrust connects. Every pvper should have atleast one or two 40/40 builds.

    I'm doing a 40/40 build now, but have never had one. Looking forward to it, and was looking at weapons. I've done Bastardsword/Claymore/Greatsword, so was looking at things like the Longsword. Unsure about the Leo Ring, but I'll try it out. Long sword is a pretty quick weapon if I remember correctly.

    Use the character planner to map out your stats and play around with it. If i might add a suggestion though. id go 40 on each end/str/dex and max out vit until SL120 just for a test run use std upgrade weapons and you see oppoenants react to your att power.

    Also I believe the Leo ring works with the Claymore.

    The slowest, longest and most beautiful Silver Knight sword.

    Normally I put my ATT to 10 or 12 to get some helpful pyromancy spells in (power within is really helpful pve anyways, same with Flash Sweat against Queelag).

    I think I can spare a few pts for ATT. Thanks!

    Think I'm going to restart my STR/DEX build. I haven't made any mistakes, but I've just been playing with a Black Knight sword then switched to a Greatsword. Has been quite easy. Want to see what it's like splitting STR/DEX and using a longsword the entire time.
