Going to fight Manus, which weapon should I bring?

I'm just coming back to the game, haven't played it in a year, so I've forgotten a lot of stuff. Just got the DLC too, and going through that for the first time.

I'm on NG++ with a Faith build. Vitality and Faith at 55. Endurance at 41. Strength, Dexterity 16. So which weapon would be best to bring? Here's what I have available:

Occult Scythe +5
Divine Lucerne +10
Great Scythe +15 (with SB and DMB)
Fire Uchigatana +10
Lightning Uchigatana +10

Also, I'm currently using DWGR and Havel's Ring. Considering swapping out DWGR for the Cloranthy Ring. Or is there a better ring to take with me?

Elemental weapons don't seem to work too well against him namely magic weapons.

I have it, for just in case, but I don't really use it. I mainly use the Occult Scythe and an Occult Longbow.

Edit - Oh, I see. Lightning only goes to +5. Well, I did say that I forgot some things. :)

I beat him with a Raw +5 Scythe. Keep rolling keep moving. Good luck getting a summon. I couldn't find anyone near the firelink nor at the boss gate.

poot 1 nanny GT. I will be on shortly level 94

Thanks for the offer, but I'm not going to be on for a few more hours. And I'm at level 138, so that's probably out of range anyway.

Whatever does the highest physical damage. Use the GS +15 with power within (if you have it).

I do have it. But I only have a base Pyro Glove, does that matter?

Power Within used to be best with an unupgraded flame. Now it was fixed so that leveling up the flame doesn't eat more HP, so the refine rate doesn't matter.
