This is my favorite weapon in the entire game. My first character was a quality build with 30 str/dex and I got my hands on this and I fell in love. It has beautiful combos and you can be very effective 2 handing or 1 handing it. Just a good weapon for any situation.

Great combo: 2H R1, R1, and then R2; most opponents reactively roll all vertically, so this is like to clip them, it worked twice on a chugger, killing him the second time.

While the claymore is tied with the bastard sword as being the most visibly bland greatsword in the game the moveset, range, and output are fantastic I also love the sweeping R1s in the two handed moveset. I am genuinely disappointed that dark souls 3 doesn't have a two handed sweeping R1 on any of the greatswords just the same copy pasted smash, lift, smash, lift, smash, lift, etc. feels like B team had way more imagination for diverse weapon movesets (and hybrid movesets) than A team.

...Or a full suite of sweeping and thrusting attacks would have destroyed spacing in a game that heavily favors spacing? Have you considered how every Ds title is very mechanically different

Astora greatsword in DS3 has a great moveset, exactly as described, and is one of the best weapons for pvp, and is also good for pve, but can be weak in certain fights.
