Weapon has some peculiar mechanisms at play, notabley deals strike damage for all if it's moveset except the heavy thrust which deals... thrust damage. This is the least resisted physical damage type in PvE and on most armors equipe-able by players, giving the weapon notabley more consistent damage. 2-handed R1 true combos into an uncharged 2-handed R2. Doesn't really change much about the weapon. Still requires 4 hits for your average 40+ vigor pvp-er with decent armor. Aka, can still be accomplished with 2 R1+R1 combos. However, might change to a 3 hit kill if buffed, low leveled, poor armor, or poor vigor players. R2 benefits from Leo Ring, but not in a R1+R2 combo, as the R-1 gets the counter hit bonus. Other than this peculiarity, it's a pretty average ultra great sword. Great if you can bait players into a trade, but not top tier in 1v1's as any competent player can easily roll your 2 handed moveset and reaction parry your 1 handed moveset.
