Best dex-scaling PVE weapon for bosses?

As far as current availability, iaito seems my best bet. Scythe looks slow, slow's no good for me.

My X-box One will be like God, in that it doesn't exist and I'll feel sorry for people who have one.

If the Balder Side Sword is not buffed,even at +14 , its bloody useless.

I prefer different weapons depending on which area I'm in and which boss I'm fighting.

Great Scythe
Royal Forest
Sanctuary Guardian
Kalameet

Iaito/Uchigatana
All areas except for Anor Londo and Duke's Archives
Artorias
Seath (running R1 against his tail)

Silver Knight Spear
Royal Forest
Chasm of the Abyss

Balder Side Sword
Manus

Murakumo
All areas
Four Kings (it's good against all bosses really)

Quelaag's Furysword
O&S
Seath
Nito

Rapier/Estoc/Dark Silver Tracer
Against Silver Knights and Black Knights

Falchion if it doesn't bleed, PGS or a katana if it bleeds.

Great Scythe + sunlight blade = GG PVE

Video games always break the fourth wall, theyre like 'Snake, push the SELECT button!' and Snakes probably like 'What the f***!?'

If I think about "best," "PVE," and "boss" altogether. . .

My mind honestly goes to Ricard's.

It's the only place where it really has a chance to shine.

But then, that only really becomes relevant after about NG+5 or so when the health bars start getting husky.

Even despite the fact that a bleed weapon would do all the same work and then some by that point, it's really hard to match the potential burst DPS this weapon holds as long as everything works out right.

Honestly, I just really like building it up whenever I get the chance. Doesn't have much of a niche outside of being sexy as hell.

I some times use it, it's got decent riposte and very fast combos, but 2 handed balder side sword buffed just rips through everything without the weird moves set of pgs.
