    Yeah I've never got a good handle on the Gravelord sword, the startup on the R1 is just too long for me to deal with. I must be doing something wrong.

    On topic, good story glad to hear you had some success!

    yea the swing does take a bit but swing 2-3 times with it and if they have low poison resist youll cause them to go toxic even if they block oh and viral wen r u gonna update the members post?

    You can ''zone'' pretty effectively with the GLS too,

    The duel-handed R2 from The GraveLord Sword breaks 76 poise if I remember correctly , makes up for the slow startup a lot, plus causes stun/knockback on block.

    The running R1 & backstep R1 combo is awesome (single handed has wide swing, duel is overhead)

    throw in some duel handed R1's from a distance , or if they circle you .

    (I don't mean combo/spam R1 but single presses with a pause to ''zone'' & keep em at bay )

    For landing regular R1's on opponent's it works great to anticipate when they are trying to come close.

    If you want to fight offensively with it , it really is best to duel-hand it.

    Thanks for the advice, I'll practice more with the sword.

    Now what armor is most befitting a Gravelord?

    Gold hemmed looks pretty dark and evil... or at least the hood! (I love the way it looks on the savegame screen!)

    I've been using the Havel Set, sometimes with just a thief hood instead of the helm, but I like the way it looks.

    I regards to the GLS topic. The way I use it is I 2H it and use the heavy attack (A thrust) until I know I've made contact twice. 2 Hits with a 2H heavy will cause toxic. Then I switch over to one hand with a shield of choice (Usually Grass Crest) and dance around, throwing in a jab from the GLS or other weapon as the opportunity arises.

    I agree that the R1 start up on the GLS is slow, but, my character is slow, and has tons of poise. If I ever get backed into a corner, I have iron flesh in my back pocket too. Sure I'll be slow, but if I can get an attack on you, you're doomed.

    Where I'm at in the game, Havel's set is the best I have. I've yet to complete Sen's Fort and haven't actually put any time into Depths to find anything down there.

    Once I get further, I'll probably trade up Havel's set for either Orinstein's or Smough's but IDK which one. However; I never intend on using Giant's Armor, as I hate Stamina impeding.

    Black iron is also one of the coolest armors in the game just saying. Also Tarkus uses it so that makes it even cooler.

    Because I am a knight of Havel in the Noble Knights. I also requested a new one if you check the thread for sigs because I need to better represent the cov I colead. Also for all his awesomeness Tarkus just doesn't suit me and I'm sure somebody else could make better use of him in a sig. I know you were just kidding but I felt like answering.

    Tarkus's set is the best heavy armour. 79 poise, great defence and lowest weight.
    I'll be sad to see you sig go Sun.
