Most of my finishers come from the Varangian Sword or Great Resonant Soul. It's too much fun to sprint into someone until they panic roll then finish them off with a quick WD straight sword attack. That, or GRS during item animations.
I'm interested to hear how most other people use their finishers.
With my new dex guy, i've been dual wielding a falchion and rapier (not in power stance) and bellbroing for chunks, im fairly early only level 60 or so.
The shieldless nature of this style makes people overconfident, the heavy smacks from my falchion and quick punishes with the rapier is a great combo. Most of my kill shots is with a dash or rolling rapier poke.
It's fun and while im not doing amazing, it's forcing me to get better at rolling and avoiding attacks.
I've seen quite a few bring up the Varangian sword, but what's so great about it?
Extremely low requirements with one of the best damage for a straight sword. All of its attacks are horizontal(ish) slashes, so it's incredible for catching people out of any rolls. That, and it has a scary punishing 1H WD attack that most straight swords have.
