Yes, demon great machete kicks major ass right now, hitting with 612 attack rating with 40 STR now that it has A rank scaling.

It can be enchanted and have charcoal rubbed onto it.

Zweihander can be tossed into the garbage can right about now for any true STR builds.

The drakes at the valley of the drakes seem to have a lot less health thankfully, cuts down on the time it takes to widdle them down, and they drop dragon scales, don't know if they did or not before.

I'm still amazed everytime I read just how much they changed with this patch. I'm so damn excited to try it all out, but I have to wonder how they released the game with this many changes needed for a patch.
