Trying to cut Seath's tail, and my +15 Ricard's Rapier isn't quite doing the trick. I'm a int/dex build. Flamberge seems to have the best dex scaling of greatswords, but otherwise dunno. Any suggestions?

I was going to try a +15 Great Scythe. Seath's tail is actually the last weapon I need to get 100% achievements. All other bosses I've been able to get tails pretty easily (Gargoyle's on one hit on NG+3). If you try it let me know how it goes...

Alrighty. It's hard not finding options that I don't need Shiva for. I don't wanna have to grind out 15 humanity again to rejoin the Chaosbros. >.>;

Perhaps the regular Scythe from Sen's? It's not bad. Works like a halberd, so it has a wonderful running attack.

Perhaps. Gonna boot up DkS and see what I have to work with here.

Edit: Totally forgot my Balder Side Sword. +15'd it and we'll see if this works. :3

I think the great scythe will do the job. Pretty sure I've done it with the uchi as well

The washing pole is quality weapon.

You could try the uchi/iaito or the falchion, you're going to want to strike as many times as you can within a very short amount of time and those weapons have decent speed. The katana's would be nice for their vertical strike, giving you a better chance of hitting his tail, however I believe the falchion is faster. You could also try the Chaos Blade for a bit more damage.
