Pursuer's greatsword, is it worth it

#1Phantom0708Posted 3/13/2014 9:00:07 AM
I traded for this weapon with straid, and it doesn't seem to be worth it.

It's cool, I like it, I like the moveset. But the standard "greatsword" does more damage. The pursuer's greatsword upgrades with petrified dragon bones, of which I've only found one so far.

Does it get better when fully upgraded?

Boss Souls seem to give crazy boosts on level up, but I find the Pursuer's greatswords moveset is just way too slow.

You can give the bird silky stones for the bones

Greatsword and Zweihander have a MUCH better moveset, Purser leaves you way too open to be viable in PVP.

That's not what I asked


I love the moveset and the sword, I'm asking if the damage gets higher


So it does boost higher? Any reference on how much when fully upgraded?

My +5 Greatsword far outdamages my +1 Pursuers.

Once again I asked when FULLY upgraded, what the damage is

My Pursuer is +2 right now. It does 256 damage with A/C scaling. That gives it +129 bonus damage.

Each upgrade gives it ~50 damage and improves scaling. My +2 Drangleic Sword does 229 damage with C/B scaling for comparison.

So far, the horizontal sweep has been all I need for PvP.

Personally, no. Though I just don't like the moveset. I prefer my Black Knight Ultra Greatsword, dat fire damage.
