  3. So, does EVERYONE use katanas?

Seems like everyone I invade is using a damn weeablade. It's almost as popular or equal in popularity to pre-nerf Claymore.

People like Dex builds.

Personally, I don't see the cosmetic appeal. Katanas are, and have always been, an ugly sight to me. I see no craftsman beauty in them. Straight swords look so much cooler graphically.

I understand DEX builds are popular, not everyone has the testosterone levels needed to use heavier weapons. I was more dumbfounded by the sheer number of katana users. It's just such a generic weapon.

Well, people like the washing pole for its range, and the Iaito for its slightly more versatile moveset, but other than that, I don't see the appeal. None of them look good cosmetically.

I've never liked katanas. To me, a TRUE sword HAS to have a double-edged blade.

Edit: Forgot that the bleed factor is a good tool for inducing panic (and chipping turtles).

I get the longspear, but why the claymore? Or do you roll quality?

The Claymore has a versatile moveset and nice range, with a 1h R1 stab that is great for baiting.

Just curious, why must a "true" sword have a double edge?

Great for getting rollbsd rather lol :D

I use it because it has a nice rolling stab, a nice running attack which combos into the r1 while 2h, and also a somewhat nice r2 while 2h.
