What's the best weapon you've seen thus far? (Streams or from your own game)

TheBrett made his Zweihander look pretty incredible, capable of killing almost any enemy in 1-4 hits. I think he was doing the regular upgrade path, and he had 50+ strength.

Lightning Spears seem very popular for turtles, Ornstien and the Trident especially.

I've also heard that Lucerne (Mirdan Hammer) is pretty overpowered as well, but I haven't seen it in action. :/

It seems like anything +Lightning/Fire upgrades is formidable as well.

Katanas are pretty impressive too, from what I've heard.
I'm a bit disappointed that the coolest weapons require massive stats to wield though.

Eh, it makes sense to me.

I'm going to be a spear user. I'm going to be called Dragoon, even though I have no jump attacks. :[

Pretty much everything lightning and fire is considered good. Unlike in DS, the lightning and fire upgrade paths provide considerably high stats, where intelligence and faith builds will only be able to surpass them in strength when their specialty stat is above 40 points.

Lots of players have not found the true strength of spears yet. Most just use the WB attacks in PvP, but spears now have very good WD attacks as well. Some long spears can perform WD attacks similar to the Red-Eyed Knights of Boletaria.

Quelaag's Magic Sword is considered to be the new BBS, while the Dragon Fang is the new DBS.

There's also a glitch that supposedly makes thunder weapons extremely OP.

Ya , those will be great until you find a weapon that scale great with you re stats .

The last time i saw BRETT play he found a better weapon then his Zweihander , it think it was the Great-sword of the black knight

scale better with str


The drake sword is also a great one ( scale with nothing tho ) . It does 200 base damage - 300 at +5 .

Actually, no. Some players say that a thunder Zweihander is better than the Black Knight Greatsword in terms of damage. Note that the Black Knight Greatsword cannot be enchanted, and lots of enemies are weak to thunder.

At max with 50 STR, the Black Knight Greatsword has about 550 physical AR

At max, the Thunder Zweihander has 357 physical and 364 thunder AR.

The rake swor obtaine by sniping the Dragon's tail in Undead Burg is quite good for a starter weapon IMHO...
