    You know, I've been using it since I got it yesterday morning, and the damage is a little underwhelming compared to the attack power. On paper, it looks like it would out damage my Gargoyle's Halberd by a ton, but it really doesn't do anywhere close to the same damage. I'm stumped.

    have you got it to +5 yet? have you added a buff yet? halberds are supposed to do more damage than greatswords if you look at the original weapons although I am very glad if it actually doesnt...

    I'm only at plus 4 so far, and as for buffs, I can buff my halberd too so that's inconsequential.

    How upgraded is your halberd?? Your stats???

    What is the AR for both weapons??

    Also I assume you are testing both weapons 1 handed R1???

    I'll give you conclusive data once I've farmed up the last couple of scales. Give me a couple hours.

    OK cool, I'm sure you know but make sure you don't count attacks during a time it would be considered a counter attack as they get a boost to damage.

    I have been dueling in the arena the past couple of hours, and the most effective tweak to my original suggested build I have seen (several times!) is to cut out GMW and just use resin for lightning damage.

    I made that exact build (from first post) on PS3, and I really, really like the GMW claymore with Chaos as a swappable backup, and feel the OGS is just going to be overkill come October 26th.

    I dont have a greatsword toon on PC, but have not noticed a reduced stunlock @ 56 poise on PC, however greatswords are much slower on the second swing, and easy to punish with a BSS R2.

    Stunlock is not gone, its just no longer infinite/instant game over spamming like on the console
