Best one handed sword (for fighter or assassin)

#1GoutengPosted 7/13/2012 6:31:48 AM
Apart from Dragon's Dogma, what do you think is the best sword? Is the Bastard Sword any good?

Bastard sword is, honestly, crap.

Pure Physical: Carnation
Attack/Magic (Stronger overall usually) Ascalon

Even compared to these, the Dragon's Dogma is just okay.

Carnation is the best assuming that you use a pawn with affinities/enchantments.

I think DD is like 522 basic while Carnation is like 600+.

Some items upgrade better than others, for sure, but I can safely say Carnation, on even footing in upgrades, does win.

If you gave Caxton the gold idol, the Almace. It's only 190 strength, but like 250 magic (Overall Stronger than the Batard Sword's 244) with a permanent Ice Enchant, which is good against Big Red.

If you're lucky, you might get this in a chest on the way to the dragon.

That's because it's Dragonforged, and the Carnation was level 3.

Dragon's Dogma and Carnation at the same forge level have only like a five Strength difference, it's the same as all weapons when it's Everfall vs. Grigori.

Everfall weapons have superior Strength
Ur-Dragon weapons have superior combined attack power due to very good Strength / Magick stats.
Grigori weapons have anywhere from 5-10 less attack power than Everfall weapons, are heavier, and usually have lower knockback / stagger / stability (for shields).

You can get the Crossed Cinqueda pre-post game with the gold idol. I'm pretty sure that's the best one available.

In Gran Soren, yes.

But... how can I word this?

It looks... too... brutish? Like, it'd be a perfect hand-and-a-half sword, but for a one-hander, it's just too... know what I mean?

I don't actively dislike it. It looks cool on Duke Edmun, for example. But not on my personal arisen or pawn. You need a very specific look to pull that one off well.
