This weapon sounds really cool and I'm a fan of rapier type weapons but I've read it's a rare drop from the Balder undead knights. How much humanity do you guys think is good for farming the undead parish knights. Actually how much humanity is good for farming in general?
Also, I know humanity doesn't increase rare item drop rate but drop rate in general but I don't think it can hurt to have some.
just keep killing the elite guards around the undead church. You'll eventually get it. The weapon is so good early on. It has the swing speed of a long sword with about double the reach. And the thrust attack with R2 has mad reach, and is easy for counter attacks. I make Baider Side Sword Divine, its beast
Having 0 Humanity and the Covetous Ring equipped gives you 300 Item Discovery. Having 1 Humanity will raise that to 320. After that, the benefits of Humanity will slowly drop, with the max being 30 Humanity giving a total of 410 Item Discovery.
If you're worried about losing Humanity, you can just pop 1 with the Ring for more cost-effective use.
I got one quite early on farming souls around Undead Parish - I've never used it as the stats make it look identical to the long sword apart from a much lower durability and I was using my Drake at the time.
From what I'm reading here I take it that it would be a superior choice over the long sword if I decide to upgrade one of them?

What is the state scaling at if you make it divine?
3DS FC: 1848-1772-7953 There is a 9/10 chance that this post speaks truth.
Stat Scaling is C for Divine, B for Occult. I haven't gotten the Occult Ember yet, so I'm just using as Divine +5 right now. Its swing radius caught me totally off guard when I first started using it, I thought it was a rapier by the way it looks, but its a mix between a rapier and long sword.
