Iaido Sword/Chaos Blade (stats)

#1nightshadow275Posted 10/7/2011 3:12:34 AM(edited)
So when I get there I will always use the Iaido Sword/Chaos blade but I have a few questions I need resolved so I can work on my build for it.

1st of all, maybe a stupid question :p. The Chaos blade is sort of an upgrade from the Iaido sword right? the move set/looks will remain the same?

And then my second and last question already xD. What stats should I focus on? To be more precise does the Iaido Sword/Chaos blade scale best with str or dex?

Edit:

One more question I started off with a warrior class, would it be better to be a wandered or a thief class to play with those weapons? I did build mainly dex and endurance so far though on my warrior, so I did build the right way so far I think.

curved blades are boosted most with dex, iaito has a different r2 move other than that their moveset should be the same, as far as upgrade goes, depends on your play style, one could be more powerful than the other

Chaos blade is a blade of its own, thus have its own r2 moves. If you value iaito's unique iai strikes, do not use it to upgrade into chaos blade. Use uchigatana, a bubble katana if you join the forest covenant.

Chaos blade scales if dexterity with a b. It also gets stronger the more humanity you have

should be fine, you prolly would have pumped a few points into str as a wander or hunter anyway

Does it have to be a katana type weapon or could I use another curved weapon like the falchion or scimitar?
