Fist weapons are terrible in general. Usable for PvE if you know what you are doing, useable in PvP only if the opponent is a complete noob.

DGM hits like a truck, but it cannot stunlock like the zweihander can since its swings more slowly. The best STR weapons imo are the great club, large club, and the man serpent greatsword.

Thank you shadow, i didn't think the DGM hit fast enough to stun lock, so i was wondering why ppl glorify it. And that sucks about fist weapons since thats the only weapon with an S in STR

I don't think anyone glorifies it. They just suggest it for strength builds because it has good scaling.

The demon greataxe also has an S for STR scaling, but it isn't that much stronger than the DGM or great club and has a much worse moveset.

I would second the MSGS for a strength build. Just based on movesets, I've never been that big of the clubs for some reason. The big ones I like more than the small ones since... I suppose if you are going to have a slow weapon, might as well have a slow weapon with tons of damage. I would say that's why people like the Zweihander so much... not only does it have a lot of power, but it stuns like a mofo. But I've just never been fond of those clubs' movesets.

This is why I said you should just build them. It all depends on how you play. If I were doing a strength build, I'd probably go MSGS. I'm not sure how you play, so you should build each and experiment.

MSGS is basically a slightly shorter, single stat scaling claymore.

DGM is a slower zweihander with much more useless R2s and again single stat scaling.

The clubs/DGHammer are great because of their 2 handed rolling attack.
