    480 AR for 20str and 16 dex? I know what my next low level build is going to use.

    Pretty badass weapon. not sue why they nerfed clay and then put that in but oh well silly
    sucks it has the new slow swing speed though.

    On paper, its completely OP, but I can't wait to see how it preforms. I mean its moveset is fine (the R2 is nutter butter), the power is great, but since it doesn't scale, I think a 40/40 could be worth it with the increasing returns on AR. Still the extra vit you could get from 20/16...

    Its extremely interesting it weighs that much, I was looking for a weapon that weighed that, but there is only one (one of the crossbows), quite interesting indeed. I feel the weight will be a perfect way to balance it, at 8, it's fine enough in the hands of the 'good' builds, but without DWGR, you're looking at light light armor, or none, maybe no shields or other weapons. I can't wait to see that ring (the half HP one? Any details on that?)

    It's gonna be the new vit build weapon on like someone else mentioned and I have no idea why the gs got nerfed with the speed, in no way were they op if a weapon deserved to get slower or a stagger for a miss is the damn spears. Of course other weapons might be better with a 40/40 build but more poise and vit is gonna be a *****, maybe. we have to wait and see though. 8 weight is nothing for what it is and the stat requirements imo, this is coming from someone that uses weapons that weight 24.

    Mm. Dragon Weapons don't ignore armor, do they? If they don't, it won't do that much damage on Havels or Giants.

    Yeah... greatswords seem to have a slower attack speed. Also I think elemental weapons were nerfed. Don't quote me on it but it seems like a good chunk of their damage was taken off from both the physical and elemental sides.

    Considering a curved sword swung slower than some great swords, yeah, that nerf was really necessary for balance.

    at 20 dex 40 str the GLGS still out damages it slightly... how ever with the new DWGR nerf i need to choose 2 of the 3 between the GLGS, 40 poise, and RTSR and i pick 40 poise and RTSR.

    @ice interesting, might have to make a build around that, why 48 str?!!! Damn, I will probe Lhasa end up making brand new build for the new weapons. Thanks. I'm guessing it's gonna be the strongest weapon in the game in terms of ar.

    190 AR? and likely an A scaling at +15 well damn. I may be speaking too soon but I think it tops out Demons. since scaling is as a ratio of its original damage and all.

    Why does everyone ignore the flamberge? It's an amazing weapon for dex builds.
