Clearly the superior choice in any situation... It's my firm opinion that the straight sword class in general is OP, the dark sword being on it's own tier of *******. Maybe that sounds whiny or salty, but i don't honestly have issues with people using straight swords so much as i have issues with being 4 hit killed by a dark infused straight sword. Fighting with straight swords really is as simple as just managing your spacing and punishing, i'll say that straight swords are easy mode and don't really take skill to use, that isn't to say that you CAN'T fight using a straight sword with skill. I've been on both sides of the argument and know what its like both fighting and using straight swords, there are people who actually fight with skill, it's just "skill" involving straight swords really just seems to be being really aggressive and roll catching at every possible opportunity, it can feel really cheap. You know what i'm talking about, those skilled straight sword users that basically dominate the fight and usually have you dead in around 30 seconds the first time you fight them, then you git gud the next time you fight them and eventually their "skill" (aggressive playstyle) gets easier to handle as you fight them more. That or you have those guys that will just walk away from you untargeted and R1 back at you when you go to follow them and just repeat this. I can say from experience that the default straight sword class WAs can be SO good if you know how to use them... It can feel unfair how good they can be... shields basically become useless and that WA R2 is just AMAZING if used right. The WA R1 comes out quicker than most regular r1s on almost every weapon type and chains into the WA R2 really well too, its not a true combo but will land often if the opponent doesn't time their roll well. There really are just so many reasons straight swords are just too good, are there counter measures? Of course. There're counter measure to everything, but anyone with skill knows how to handle said counter measures for their weapon.
