  3. Best dex-scaling PVE weapon for bosses?
2 years ago#1
I'm a pretty standard thief, my only attack stat is dex and I normally use a rapier. But for bosses and other beasts I can't counterhit or backstab, what should I use?

And I just realized the topic title is somewhat redundant. Sorry!

Balder side sword or Gold tracer.
Tracer might be slightly better for dat bleed.

Great Scythe overall. Might want some fast bleed weapon for demons. Falchion/Quelaags for 4 Kings.

If this is for PvE, ditch the rapier. You don't need that backstab bonus for PvE, since any backstab wrecks the enemies that are able to be BS'ed.

Great Scythe - Long Range, Best Damage, slower than the others
Iaito - Balanced. Less generic than the Uchigatana, but still abit boring. If you can handle Hp loss, then the chaos blade is amazing too.
Gold Tracer - Fast, amazing bleeding. Looks awesome. Shorter range.

Great scythe.


If you can buff, Great Scythe, if you can't, Lifehunt.

Although it's technically not a DEX weapon since it requires high STR, the Murakumo is an absolute beast in PvE. It hits that sweetspot of being able to deal a lot of damage without being too slow.

Great Scythe, any Katana or Silver Knight Spear.
