After completing the game with a greatsword, I tried to play using this katana and found out that the game became much more challenging. Colossal weapons like the greatsword deal high damage, break enemy defenses with ease (I even killed Malenia on my second attempt with a greatsword and the mimic), and are able to block a significant amount of incoming damage. I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if katanas are simply more difficult to use.

katanas rely more on being opportunist and dodging everything till a slight break between attacks at which points they can shred absurdly fast or you can learn to play around the bleed for even smaller breaks between attacks to proc things to death but overall it's just the swap of weapons as you learned to use a big weapon first our brains function similar to learning languages and being "fluent" with katanas henceforth becomes harder and as such people who started out with katanas will find bigger weapons harder to use because once you get the muscle memory for one playstyle down it's hard to change to another.

to add on to my previous analogy the hand of malenia you can get from malenias remembrance functions nearly identical to this but has much higher base damage stats as well as guard stats.

So, katanas you do hit and run types for a lot of them. You cannot punish that hard since stagger points are minimal for them. It is true they do less dmg but weigh a lot less, allowing you to use other stuff as well. If you go arc build use reduvia along side this one. Or for magic build, use one of the glintstone daggers with moonveil. Daggers will compensate for katana speed and maybe try dual wielding katanas. They have a really fast L1 moveset. If you want stagger try Dragonscale blade’s ability. Its bomb.

Still pretty widely used, just goes to show how people will just use whatever reddit or gaming articles tells them to use.

I’m glad of the nerfs tbh
It weeded out the people who only used it because it’s meta and left only the collection of Based Jetstream Samuel Cosplayers to revel in the newfound purity of the ROB fanbase

Fun fact: The reason why I'm cosplaying Jetstream Sam is because all I had to do was literally just add a scar to the deffault samurai character

At least it got buffed again, which makes it a little more viable than it was post nerf in PVE

started a new playthrough, and i came back to my boy RoB. the weapon art is just too good to deny in pve. and the comedy of seeing boss heath bars explode when i pull in a +10 mimic is the cherry on the top.

I never used this weapon for the hate it earned in the community, but seen it hundreds of times when invading, and I gotta say, if you didn't learn to counter it at this point, the problem lies in you. Yes, there are situations where rivers spam is just unavoidable death, but hyperarmor, parry, poise and many other methods exist that are super effective against these. I kind of feel like most tryhards just use this weapon's existance as a cheap excuse to justify using equally broken (if not more broken) stuff like dual bleed lances with bloodhound step and sleep (which is a carried by the phantom hit glitch and hopefully will get fixed btw).
