Best strength weapon in the game by far. 1. U can get it very early 2. Needs only 18 or 19 strength to wield it 2h. 3. No other stats than strength required. 4. Very good damage output. Heavy +10 with 60 str has almost 600 ar or 40 str 2 handed before any buffes. 5. Can be buffed and infused. 6. Insane strong r2-r1 combo. 7. Cannot be parried 2h mode. 8. Weights only *****ing 12 units. 9. Has strike damage useful for a lot of bosses. 10. Has hyper armor. 11. Very nice sweeping moveset. Even the weapon art is usefull in pve in certain situations. Surely there are weapons with higher damage out there but the difference is very low. Ledo great hammer with 60 str has 623 ar, and for like 30 ar difference u have way worse moveset, (except the wa), Ledo is almost 3 times more heavy and u get it late game. Not to mention Ledo can't be buffed.
