I just started using it as a non elemental. Weapon for faith cause its a one hand that scales s in strength its a good choice for a secondary weapon. If you looking for a lightning weapon then go defenders greatsword you get it from the throne defender. Until then use heides spear

this definitely needs a Counter Damage buff.
since is basically an Axe moveset it should have the 120 standar of Axes, or atleast 110.

In case if it wasn't clear, the reason why you'd take Red Rust Sword over Axes is because of its Power Stance options. Wielding it with Straight Swords / Curved Swords will grant you their power stance movesets, which are infinitely better than the Axe's one.
Also, the first 1-Handed R1 attack has noticeably less ending lag when compared to Axes, giving it a faster swing rate and/or extra combo potential.
The lack of Counter Damage is a bit unfortunate, but the extra reach & speed when dual wielding with the swords make this an excellent poise-breaking candidate.

The lack of Counter Damage is also a bit disappointing, but the extra range & speed while dual wielding with the swords does make it a poise-breaking monster.

But how many str dex does it takes for power stance with red rust scmitar?
By Anonymous
#16393705
Power stance is 150% rounded up of the req Str and dex for each weapon, if you open up a calculator (or google) and put in 1.5*(stat requirement)
Doing that we get:
35 Strength (1.5*23=34.5 round up=35)
20 Dex (1.5*13=19.5 round up =20)
