Am the only one who thinks the halberd should have scaled with both strength and finesse, I mean it has the req for both and it would make a quality build actually worth it.

Hello, I took the time to take a comprehensive comparisson on the weapons provided. Most important: if you did tests yourself then please prove me wrong. Every test was done with same stats across, aswell as same upgrade level. Speeds were stopped manually with a stopwatch: 10 times per weapon, per combo. Forward momentum was not taken into account for the range tests, as that would give out false conclusions (forward momentum =/= range). Movesets and coverage were based on a generall usefullness, single enemy aswell as multiple enemies. Please enjoy. If you have questions, just ask.

First DPS-wise (DamagePerSecond) that's in a "perfect schenario" where every hit counts. Best to worst: 1-Vados Axe, 2-Thief Blades, 3-Aldwynn Halberd, 4-Spell Blade, 5-Aldwynn Greatsword, 6-Vados Spear/Longsword, 7-Steel/Crystal Greathammer, 8-Acolyte Scythe, 9-Scythe of Reaping. The tome has a bit of a special place: it's eiter at a rating of 0.5 if every projectile hits or at 6.5 if only one projectile hits.

You're forgetting one thing about the axe when it comes to damage output, its amazing at dealing damage, but it doesn't deal the damage itself, its finisher move is literally its second attack and is very quick to pull off, you can very quickly and easily combo into the air attack combo for a 4x +25% damage air attack with another weapon, my preferred is the Halberd because of its reach and speed though I think a Hammer or any of the other high single hit damage weapons would probably do well in this slot too if range/speed is not an issue and you just want big damage

There is a bug that when you keep shooting arrows while you have Soul Arrows and Multi-shot active near 0 soul energy, your rate of fire increases by an enormous amount. Doing incredible dps.

But there are many greatswords, and longswords. You should ask why didnt the HAMMERS get any new weapons. Just to let you know i dont use hammers, nor any of the swords. I use scyth
