Havent gotten it yet. Any good upgrade paths for it?

I was really hoping whips would have been cool. The idea had a lot of potential.

The regular whip flat-out sucks.

I heard the notched whip is better.....but, is it even worth it?




Would have been nice if there was an ultimate whip weapon of some kind. Or a way to make one. Just for roleplaying purposes.

You got all those guys spamming the heavy weapons and their precious lightning and fire claymores..............I want to be that weird dude running around whipping people.

It's better, but still a novelty weapon.

The regular whip has more AR maxed out in any upgrade path I think. The Notched Whip has bleeding, so, there's that.

Is it actually better? It has bleed, but the slow attack rate would probably make that difficult to land. Outside of the bleed effect, it's actually weaker than the standard whip.

The whips hide buffs until you use them. Most ppl don't want to rush a lit up weapon...
Scale great with dex (A) and are fun at the very least.

Ha! I knew it lol. I actually thought the same thing when I first saw the notched whip, got excited until i realized it would be useless to my character build with no dex

Speaking of rolling with weapons that are terrible I think I am going to try empty left hand, Cestus right hand. Parry-riposte is pretty BA.
