Good luck beating the game at SL1; If you can do that, then you deserve to have the weapon. Of course, if you're that good, then you'd probably have better gear/equipment/strategies for dealing with enemies at that point anyway.

Yeah!! Knight ring +5 STR, so u will have 15 STR, and you can use it.. I think that is pretty ok because Deprived CAN link the fire. However, you won't get the FTH damage Bonus .. also this looks closer to Storm Ruler from Demon's Souls than the actual Storm Ruler in DS3 haha!

Needs some help here. Trying to make build using this weapon and pyro. Question is, does it scale better when putting points into faith and int or with strength and dex?

With 20/20 Str and Dex and 30/30 Faith and Int, AND Fire Clutch Ring, it has an AR at around 440 Damage, and when buffed it is +500 AR. I had to sacrifice Vig/End/Vit to attain, and I'm at level 120. I decided to use the Ring of Favor over the Prisoners Ring to makeup for this, since Prisoners Ring I was taking way too much extra damage IMO.It's a pve friendly build, I use a couple of Pyromancy's along with the sword. The main feature being that it's Weapon Skill can knock down enemies pretty hard. As for pvp...I've killed people, but that's mostly due to the amount of damage my Pyro does with Swamp/Witch ring equipped. Whatever you do don't use the weapon art unless they are coming at you down a hallway. It leaves you wide open for counter attack as the animation is slow.Like Swordspear, it would be really good if the buff lasted more than a few seconds.

Neither the base fire damage, the weapon art damage, nor the buff damage scale with Faith and Int. I tested this myself. However, I did not test it with the Fire Clutch Ring.

It should actually be a jack of all trades specialty. It is supposed to be a weapon that reflects all the skills of previous Lords of Cinder. It would have been interesting if they made it scale of your lowest stat, with massive tradeoffs being the whole point of the weapons.

Anyone else confused and slightly annoyed that this sword happens to be a greatsword even throuh the bonfire swords look closer to straight swords? I get that the coiled sword was a greatsword sized blade and all, but it would've made more sense to make it a straight sword. Beck maybe even add a choice to make a straight sword or a greatsword. I'm just peeved that like almost every boss weapon, it's a greatsword/great weapon and thus pointless for my builds :/ and again, the sword looks like a one hander in the fires :/

yea not a fan of how almost every boss souls weapon is a GS, guess it more proof that your character is a hobbit, your always shorter than every NPC in the game XD
