I'm a pretty standard thief, my only attack stat is dex and I normally use a rapier. But for bosses and other beasts I can't counterhit or backstab, what should I use?

And I just realized the topic title is somewhat redundant. Sorry!
My X-box One will be like God, in that it doesn't exist and I'll feel sorry for people who have one.

Great Scythe overall. Might want some fast bleed weapon for demons. Falchion/Quelaags for 4 Kings.

If this is for PvE, ditch the rapier. You don't need that backstab bonus for PvE, since any backstab wrecks the enemies that are able to be BS'ed.

Great Scythe - Long Range, Best Damage, slower than the others
Iaito - Balanced. Less generic than the Uchigatana, but still abit boring. If you can handle Hp loss, then the chaos blade is amazing too.
Gold Tracer - Fast, amazing bleeding. Looks awesome. Shorter range.

Great scythe.


If you can buff, Great Scythe, if you can't, Lifehunt.
This is a rock and roll takeover, living each day one night at a time.
