    I prefer the flameberge to a claymore. I've tried it out but they have the same moveset, the same stagger and the same stunlock. BUT flamburge bleeds you.



    Edit: Although I don't know about the damage difference.

    I'm high enough to the point where I want a fast swinging weapon. I'm usually PvPing in Giants so I have to eye my stamina, the longsword has good balanced stats and has always worked well for me. Plus I'm a knight person, sword/shield is just how I roll~

    I love to 2h with a weapon that can stagger easy/stunlock. Thats why I like my flamberge.

    Flamberge doesn't have the same one handed heavy attack and the claymore has more reach. It also wants 4 more dex points and honestly, I wouldn't use those dex points for anything else on my str build. :/

    Acually had that used against me yesterday in Demon Ruins. Poor guy kept hurling pyromancy until he ran out and then ran up to me, which was a stupid move since soon as he didn't bow and I noticed no weapon I decided to buff with SLB, while twohanding a Flamberge. I just swung a few timed and dropped him like a fly sad

    I use it on my dex built with Lifehunt 1h r1 you get so much reach, but on my str build I use greataxe, sometime duel weild ^^ Claymore is a good weapon for it, but I just can't use it for it's overuse >.< And eh, few points difference won't change to much.

    I need to make a build to try out the flamberge, it seems like a fun weapon.

    Current build is faith/str for the darkmoon blade buff, so few spare points, T_T

    Hmm I'm going to try this out after Seath, but I don't think it will replace my claymore or Artorias.

    You saw nothing!... Serious that was funny xD

    It looks like the GS of Artorias but has S scaling across the board including all stats, all base damage is at 999 and has 1 durability. You get this Ultra Mega GreatSword by making your starting gift the pendent, killing all bosses 10 times solo, not using any boss souls or embers, having obtained rank 3 in all convents at least once, and not dying once between your enitre playthrough. Upon doing all that and having Sunbro rank 3 you can turn in everything at the statue for this ultimate weapon.

    Ugh, I'm at a point where I'm typing fast and not thinking much on what I do. S scaling curse you. Besides even at A you'd be 1shotting everything...

    @shadowsoldiers

    it has reasonable stat reqs., good reach and imop, a great r2 attack. and i think it does a great job clearing out mobs in pve. probably wouldn't use much in pvp however as it can leave you open (especailly if you are 1- handing). i tend to go for dex/fth or dex/int builds, but would probably feel differently if i was building a tank.

    Great Demon hammer + 15. I sometimes have a second GDH + 10 fire for my left hand, so I have two hammers to swing at once. It is fun as hell.

    Right now on my dex and dex/faith builds I love the iaito, great scythe, ricard's rapier, and painting guardian sword. SLB + Painting Guardian Sword or Ricard's Rapier is deadly.

    If you ask me what weapon I enjoy fighting with the most and which i find the most satisfying: just a simple longsword +15.

    But weapons i fight the most with currently are spears. Being able to poke from behind your shield is a big advantage especially if you fight a group of enemies of course.

    Currently the Demon Spear, because it looks awesome, it is the longest weapon i have, it has an awesome very long range and strong R2 attack, and the main reason: It has C-scaling in dex and str. And I focus more on leveling up str...
