I don't know if it's just me, but whoever I invade/invades me do not know how to counter this weapon. My 40STR/25DEX build, with +5 BKG, does monstrous damage, and with people not knowing its moveset at all, it just puts them down in two or three hits, easy. It's almost like dex-spam R1R1R1R1R1R1 weapons have climbed so high in the meta that they forgot greatswords existed. I haven't lost a single duel in this character's NG+ so far, and it's even stood up to two spam-heavy, Carthus Rogue-katana users.
finally I can tell other players to git gud
