does any1 have a valorheart to spare that you don't really use? I will trade for 2 souls of a champion. My PSN is BeastHunter20915 if you are willing to do so.
Dude its not that hard to get. Go into NG+, Cathedral of the Deep, move to Ariandel, destroy the bridge, fight Gravetender, Win. This is a process on about 2-3 hours, nothing more. Also 100.000 Souls for a Boss Weapon that you can only get 1x per playthrough is a pretty***** trade.
I'm on ng+7 on a SL 139 Character. This fight is literal hell for me
Not a***** trade if "its not that hard to get."
I can. Add me on PSN: tvojamama1

And write under who you are alright
This weapon seems (I have never used it for PVP) like a weapon with nigh unlimited potential. You can win slugfests, you can answer parry spammers with those ungodly jumps, you beat out turtlers with the guardbreak art and you have a lot of variation in what you can throw at your opponent. Could someone who has used it tell me the most evident drawback or at least a build that f*cks it?
Need to time your attacks well. You r1 into a great weapon that is also r1'ing it'll hit your shield and guard break you instantly. Need to play very smart with this weapon
Not only that, but the only thing that really makes up for it's short range is with either it's weapon art or jumping r2.
most ultra class weps will guardbreak you in a slugfest, especially if they have high poise or fling a stompR2/RT
many dual weapons can simply combo you out of a combo by guardbreak...

this is a very VERY tactical weapon...
I just found out that you can guardbreak this weapon by rolling into the shield bash weapon art. The guy was spamming attacks so he was low on stamina, but when it hit me mid roll, it bounced off.
People using this weapon make me giggle... Sofar i have not lost to it and it seems like this weapon does not hit very hard. Does it rely on criticals to be effective?
No, it really relies on its blocking-while-attacking gimmick to trade and win.

So for example, while you wouldn't be able to tank, say, a greatsword with a straight sword, if you attack at the same time as the other player, the chances are you'll block his attack WHILE you're attacking, allowing you to trade and hit TWO R1's.

That's kinda the whole point.
Yeah it's basically a weaker more risky less reliable version of Hyperarmor. You can get guardbroken, and you can get hit before the block of your R1 starts and get interrupted. It'd be nice if it were to have some more stability, or at least 100% P.dmg absorption.

It also works well against katana R1 runners, the blocking-while-attacking gimmick can always no-sell katana running R1 as if Valorheart is specifically tailored to do so.
Don't underestimate the thrust range on this weapon. It's reach and phantom range is far greater than the actual weapon model suggests.
I know. Been stabbed by this thing on the other end of the map from where my opponent was standing. Never underestimated it since.

This weapon is nothing more than a jumping attack and R1 spam weapon. Used it for a couple of fights, used nothing else than R1 and jumping attacks, won easily. No skill weapon. GG.

More like you just got killed by someone using it and your elitist-subreddit-sheep-meta bs build didn't work and you're salty as f?

There's this amazing technique known as skill, have you heard of it? Didn't think so...
I like the gun that uses garbage for ammo.
Not entirely sure, but I think this is the only weapon(s) in the game that can deal three types of physical damage. Kind of an interesting niche, even if it isn't that applicable considering the moveset.
this weapon is really *****ing swell
