I know some people do it because they find the crescent one in 4-1* Which is a stupid reason because you could make a better crescent with just a few shards* But most of the people I see don't use a crescent version so why do people use it when the kilij is clearly better?
Cant we all just hit a bong?

some ppl don't like the way the kilij looks. I think most ppl just don't know how easy it is to actually upgrade a kilij to crescent. they just roll with the falchion.

I dont think ive ever seen someone use a falchion who are above level 30. Kilij are pretty rare too. I love the Kilij though, my theif character with a mercury kilij +5 is my favorite character.

i suppose the main reason is because of the 4-1 C falchion.. they get it and use all their darkmoonstones on it. then they find the kilij, check the stats, and they dont look as good as their newly upgraded +4 C falchion, and assume it's not as good.

but i'm betting only inexperienced players make that mistake. people who take the time to study the weapons know to use the kilij.

I still use a Crescent Falchion+5 on my 130 Mage. I've considered upgrading a Kilij but look at the stats. CF=112/119 CK=119/126 both with an A in magic, I'd rather not go through the trouble for 7/7 more damage.

Im still pretty new to this.

But im using like some pickaxe I upgraded a few times.

I know, I know NOOB haha.

So im thinking, maybe i'll try 4-1 for this falchion you guys all speak of tomorrow. Is there a certain way to upgrade it? I didn't even know you could upgrade it in different ways.

I know, I know noob.

Me and my buddy just like running around killing stuff trying to take down bosses for trophies and fun anyway so it's no biggie.

I just want to kill stuff better :P

This is pretty obvious:

A Falchion requires 9 Strength (base royal Strength) while a Kilij requires 14.

However, on my Royal caster, I sunk one point into Strength to 2-hand the mighty +5 Crescent Kilij.
