Best weapon after Drake Sword?

  1. Hi I'm a lvl 25 Pyro and since I had to restart the game I got the drake sword basically right off the bat. Haven't even looked into/upgaded anything since. I've beaten The areas with the taurus demon, the gargoyles, and the capra demon. I went into the depths and got cursed so now I'm back at the church in parish to buy purging stones. Here are my stats

    Vitality 17
    Attunement 12
    Endurance 16
    Strength 17
    Dexterity 16
    Resistance 12
    Intelligence 10
    Faith 8

    What do you recommend I do from here in terms of weapons?

  1. Personally, i think that the best weapons in the game are these(by the way everyone has their own opinion on items, and im not telling you all the good items in the slightest):

    For a lighter, faster weapon: balder side sword or uchigatana

    For a heavier, but not extremely heavy weapon: Man serpent greatsword, or claymore

    For an even heavier weapon: zweihander or great clubs

    (i personally dont like anything heavier than man serpent greatsword but yeah)

    There is also the heaviest and most strength intensive items: Any dragon items basically.

    And finally, these range from low-mid twenties all the way to mid 30's in strength requirements, but are simply astounding weapons: ANY AND ALL BLACK KNIGHT EQUIPMENT(:

    Hope this helped. but seriously, if theres a weapon you like just use it.

  1. You're pretty much a blank canvas since you don't have too much of any given offensive stat. If I were you I'd probably focus on Dex as 45 dex will give you the fastest pyro cast, then get a weapon like the Balder Side Sword and take it to +15 (when you can) as it scales well with dex.

    Since your str is also quite up there at this level, you could look into different types of Greatswords, or Clubs seem to be gaining popularity.

  2. I would focus on strength and endurance as you need 24 strength to wield the second best sword on the game the zwiehander. For the best sword on the game (great sword of artorias, ascended broken straight sword/ straight sword hilt with soul of sif) your stats need to be 24 strength, 18 dexterity, and 20 faith and intelligence.
