"in terms of damage output per stamina expended, Greatswords are easily the best value weapon category"
*******, Curved Greatswords expend the same amount of stamina per hit, but deal signifcantly more damage. Greatswords swing faster, however.

EXILE BUFFER DETECTED. NO FUN ALLOWED.
The reason for that is because of the damage type that curved greatswords deal. Standard greatswords deal standard damage, and "Physical" Defense/Absorption is typically the highest on majority armor sets, as well as with a good portion of enemies'. On the other hand, Curved GS all deal slash, and "VS slash" Defense/Absorption is typically lower on most armor and will some enemies.
Zweihander is Superior to this whole category
