Was it rebuffed with a good parry animation? Because it seems to be able to parry very quickly again, not immediate anymore but close to it. If anyone can get some tests on this it would be much appreciated.

The special attack does more damage when the weapon is powerstanced than when it's not it seems.

This weapon is trash, you are better off using red iron twinblade, greatsword, giant warrior club, bastard sword, blackdragonsword or warped sword, staff of wisdom, dragon chime with Soul geyser crystal soul spear or sunlight spear with blinding bolt, these are what max levelers use, why this weapon? painting guardian sword you want this sword? play ds1, its OP there

This doesn't seem to parry on the first frame like it used to, however it's still a very strong choice for cheesing parries in pvp and pve due to the high active parry frames. I'd recommend this weapon or the Llewellyn Shield if you plan on doing a lot of parrying.

It's the closest you can get to an easy reaction parry, since you don't need to see the attack coming to have enough time to set up the parry frames. It's fairly good for PvE in that sense, since many enemies have really erratic attack patterns

Due to the high recovery frames and the no longer incredible parry frames, this is most useful in pve/npc invaders where latency isn't an issue and you can take full advantage of the fastest startup parry frames in the game. For pvp I would stick to rapiers and shields

The parry frames are exactly the same as any other curved sword now.

Actually, it's way better than other curved swords because the curved sword parry is terrible now.

does the parry frame start instantly even without having the required attributes to wield it?
