    I wanted to take advantage of the Stone Greatsword in STR builds so I
    could invest as much power in poise and defense and still be at the
    opponent's level in terms of mobility. With the nerf, it is a spell that
    last only 10 seconds and weakens an already weak weapon on top of the
    18 weight that costs a lot of mobility. Yet, with all these drawbacks,
    people I've met still seem to heavily frown upon using the special
    despite I find it is fairly balanced due to the costs to use it. Then
    again, they also like to frown upon miracle healing, which I find
    totally okay. Once again, the honor perspective is discussed.

    What do you think about the Stone Greatsword?

    if you are using the magic effect and then BS fishing thats kind of dirty, but the way you worded it it sounds like you possibly fat roll because you stack heavy heavy armor. and if that is the case i see zero problem with it.

    i always felt that is how TWOP should have been slows your enemy to the same movement you are. if you medium roll it slows you to medium roll, if you fat roll, it slows them to fat roll. TWOP and stone sword is a great equalizer for tanks who can not fast flip or even medium roll, and when used that way i see it as 100% fair

    To me the SG always seemed to only serve 2 purposes:

    1) Make Tanks capable of chasing down people.
    2) Allow safer casting because TWoP is good for keeping people away.

    I feel like you're playing a tank wrong if you think you need to chase people down. Be patient and wait for them to come to you, even the flippiest dex player ever has to come and attack you sometime, trade hits and crush them.

    I love SGS on str builds. the split damage kind of sucks but i like its 13 second twop effect for keeping 2 sun bros off me while I 2 hand some work on the host and or parry them.

    For a mid roll/fat roll i think it would be good to pop off if you notice them bs fishing you. Go ahead and BS them if thats all they wanna do.

    I had a troll invader build a few months back that had about 20 SGS and I would just continuously twop them as they tried to bs fish and quickswitch once the previous SGS broke lmao!

    If you have 40 str why not use it. I use it with 27 sometimes and it still stuns well despite being slow.

    TWoP is broken as it is. I don't know why from had this stupid idea. Still the sword and the miracle are in the game, so it's perfectly legit and there are ways to counter it. But since the majority of the PvP community is mostly mucho skillz but little intelligence they don't know how to counter it efficiently and that's why it's so frown upon. And using it just to go for backstab it's super cheap in my opinion. But it's from's fault anyway.
