Best weapon in the game 10/10 You just have to equip some heavy armor and you can out-poise even greathammers with this thing. Low weight, very good dmg and low stamina cost + Perfect 1H moveset makes this the best quality weapon I can think off...
Best Non-elemental GS in the first game. It's still the best non-elemental GS in this game. 10/10

Is there a better great sword of any sort? I haven't found it...
I think Wolf's Knight Greatsword is better. OP Weapon Art, a bit higher attack speed and works against Gael and Midir.
I remember spammers back then and the dank sword using perseverance is there nightmare

Very quickly climbing the ranks as of late, if only because it cuts through the current heavy armor heavy weapon trade-fest bollocks of a meta the games' currently settled into like a hot knife through butter. Perseverance is just the best WA in the game overall imo, but here it comes with an incredibly solid moveset and great damage, and at least the black knight weapons have always looked badass too.

Unfortunately, I can already see the oversaturation of it beginning, but still a great sword and so satisfying to just literally cut through all this heavy armored trade orientated nonsense that's so prevalent now.
It can't be helped. Poise has been fixed since DS1. And while that's good, it's pretty much too fair in a strict and boring sense, since the meta's settled into a heavy weapon trade fest. People don't use dedicated spell builds anymore because those builds are glass cannons, spells miss most of the time and usage is extremely limited compared to how they were in Dark Souls. So most people keep an INT/FTH weapon handy like the MLG or Elfriede's GS. So the game's meta lacks overall variety in contrast to the possible build you can make, and while its still fun, PVP is basically a medieval melee weapon fight club. Good thing Fromsoft gave sorcerers the Flash Sword spell and Unfaltering Prayer to Miracles. Still goes to show that while the story is pretty much come to full circle, the gameplay mechanics are still incomplete/flawed.
I'm only getting 491ar with a 40/40 build? How are people getting 542 or 560?
2 hand it.
I am. 2 handed I'm getting 491. One handed 476.
Then yours must not be +5. Or it isn't a 40 STR and 40 DEX build.
Cause that's all that can be the issue.
It was +4. I feel dumb.
probably they are two handing it on a 66/40 build
How much more poise does it reduce exactly? Would it be useful to use this instead of some other greatsword against a Havel-set for example?
The backstep + R1, the running R1, and the rolling R2 are the three most beautiful attacks in the game.
to think this weapon have higher base damage than fugs. poor guy.
this piece right here is no joke, son... it'll turn you to spaghetti real quick... hit you with that perseverance then rrrrrrra

Fun thing to do: When killing folks in Ringed City, wear not much like the magician's clothes and Leonhard's mask, then run up on a pack of folks with rosaria's ring on the steps of hell and when they are fighting those harald knights, get close, pop iron flesh and walk right into them with that and perseverance and kill everyone very quickly. It's how I finished my Rosaria and my Moundmaker quests...

With good players, this generally only catches them once, if at all, but its still fun and my favorite method of murdering packs. It can also work pretty well with heavier armor in the Spears of the Church fight. Kills the host in two or three shots and you might win, but you only get one shot at that before he and his dogs rip you apart.

But very satisfying when it works.
