So I want to make a divine weapon but not sure which one I should devote to, I like both movesets, but which one would be a better choice? Would one weapon last longer than the other in terms of effectiveness? Don't have a lot of green titanite at the moment and can't farm yet at Blighttown so am stuck with one choice for now.

Flip a coin between Claymore and BSS, both are good in their own ways, you'll be happy either way.

The Balder Side Sword's Faith scaling is noticeably worse that that of C/C weapons, so I'd go with one of the greatswords.

Just make the BSS +15 and buff it.

It's faith scaling is garbage compared to the greatswords.

And I noticed I could also upgrade armor to divine, what does that do?

The Bastard Sword will do more damage then the Claymore fyi, however the move set is a little different, lacks thrust I believe.
