Think I missed something. .. is there a point to boosting this to Enchanted +5? The stats say it gives a S boost to INT, but the sword doesn't use INT, so why bother? *confused*
Enchanted and Magic upgrade paths both give INT scaling for the weapon. This means that as your INT increases the weapon will do more damage. This weapon in particular goes to an S scaling which means a high INT character would get a lot of damage out of it with that upgrade.
The intelligence scaling comes when you ascend on the magic path. The weapon doesn't gain the S scaling for intelligence until it is Enchanted +5, though, so you'll only have A scaling until you max it out with a blue slab
BOI
I see you lack of intelligence to understand the sentence xd
I see you lack of intelligence to understand sentence structure. :p
the bit that mentions this being a weaker falchion is just flat out false. in no scenario does this weapon do less damage than the falchion. on a pure dex build or even quality build this weapon will out damage any other curved sword in the game in terms of non-split AR at 40 dex

It does less damage at a lower level? What an astute observation, slave knight kos.
The weapon is ruined, and I don't know how to fix it
Did you try shutting it down and restarting it? If that doesn't work take it out blow in it a few times. Ancient chinese secret.
If what they said didn't work, try sacrificing Lautrec, works 100% of the time
This, or an Uchigatana?
yes

both, but this first, or this for pve and uchi for pvp
I think this weapon might have the highest DPS in the game.
R2 Spamming DMB with Richard's rapier is better I think.

But the Ricards is far less cosistent, given the stamina consumption

Personally I prefer the falchion for juuust enough phantom range for it to not be a limiter
This thing is great in this gamr... then DS3 came around
FROM took all the good mojo from this sword and gave it to the Estoc in DS3
Then they nerfed the Estoc. Sleight of hand, where did all the mojo go-jojo????
This weapon is almost the perfect dex build weapon. It weighs nothing, hits fast and it deals amazing damages (it's even worse with the Sunlight Blade buff). It has only one weakness : its range.
perfect against four kings, then ?
Yes, perfect against Four Kings... Or should I say Three Kings, because I've never seen a fourth king when using this weapon. Upgraded to +15, have 40+ dex, Sunlight Blade and Power Within = Dead Kings
How long do I have to farm for this to drop?
Probably too late, But it’s a 2% drop chance. You kill about 10 painting guardians every run, And each run takes about 2 minutes. In conclusion, I’d say about 10-20 minutes.
Be sure to wear the Gold Serpent Ring that you can pick up in Sen's Fortress, along with 4 "loose" humanity whenever you are farming anything.
Got it after 2 drops on new run.
