This game as a whole is for plebs... you're only kidding yourself... They might as well name the next game: Dark Souls IV: Black Ops: 2017.

"This game as a whole is for plebs" If that's true every game is for plebs.

PLEASE do not add your scaling to the tables, add only the base damage. When the game shows something like xxx + xxx in the equip menu, only the first numbers are the base damage, the second set of numbers (after the +) are the bonus scaling your character gets from his stats.

Dunno why they put 2 swords doing same thing(same moves) but one is stronger then the other. Longsword is my favourite in DS2, its one of the only swords that doesn't look like fantasy sword. Sadly in DK3 it suits only as starting sword and has no place later on.

Get a grip, dude...Longsword is a *****ing top tier weaponIt doesn't have the highest damage, I give you that, but it's fast, with a decent AR, with low stamina drain per hit, a good reach, a versatile moveset....I'm finishing my second playthrough with a heavy tank character and I can tell you this: faster weapon as this one are the best for this game, more than they were on previous ones ;)

Wrong. It is easily the most balanced weapon in the game, and has ridiculous damage if you upgrade it right.

Lol man, you must be joking.Lightest of straight swords and literaly takes no stamina to hit (can hit 9-10 times in a row with high END)Infuse it with fire (you can get fire gem on start) and go stunlock anyone to death. No need to raise DEX or STR, just git as much stamina and health as you can. Works for both PvE and PvP

this ends up being the strongest sword in the game. you're clueless.

what game are your playing? its weight allows it to knock of 7 swipes at 28 endurance meaning you will be spitting out consistent damage in pvp

What do you mean by "no place later on." Its one of the best straight swords for quality builds if not the best.

Cannot tell if trolling or joking tbh Longsword with 40 Dex/Str build>>>> Low stamina usage, decent AR and range and fast. It's one of the most versatile weapon in the game even late game.

Actually it is viable later on, i have it at +10 refined and i could still contest the nameless king on ng+2 with it

Either one is fine. Civilised is for the Brits and civilized for the Mericans.

I started off with a knight and im going for a strenght build. Is it better to go the heavy or the refine path with the longsword?
By Anonymous
#15761564
refine path40 Str, 40 Dex -> gg
By Anonymous
#15761565
Go for the heavy path. It will scale better with your strength although you will lose out on the damage of the refined path. However it won't matter because as a strength build your dexterity would not be high enough to take advantage of the refined gem anyways.
By Anonymous
#15761566
Honestly if you're going strength I would switch to a better strength scaling weapon, like the Butchers Knife (Axe) or I found the warpick enjoyable. If you're looking for something earlier in the game grab the claymore on the high wall of lothric.

So let me get this straight....you are using a LIGHTNING weapon to fight a boss which uses LIGHTNING and are CLEARLY resistant as ***** against it and you're surprised about you getting stuck to it? Wow....just.....wow..... XD
By Anonymous
#15786325
That boss sucks, resistant to lightning and dark as well as being immune to bleed. Doesn't leave faith builds with many options to fight it.

I have no idea why everyone thinks that boss is so hard. I died once because I was being stupid and kept hitting the legs of that dragon thing, but the second time I beat the dragon and the actual boss on the first encounter.
