I **** hate this broken piece of ****. It's a halberd with great club poise, a broken weapon art (that can potentially give you more poise!), ridiculous damage and a great club r2. What the **** where from soft thinking when they made this?! Screw you if you use this, seriously. It's even more broke than the splitleaf.
Lol git gud scrub
Ur just salty cuz I probably killed you with it
splitleaf is literally just a black knight glaive mixed with the wolf knight greatsword that can be buffed but does less damage

mad cuz bad
People still think the Splitleaf is broken? People still get caught by that?
This weapon like the splitleaf are predictable easily parried. Also its attacks can easily be punished these are ways I have beaten players who use this weapon. - Punish them with a long reaching weapon right as they finish their weapon art. - Fake them out and use the back step thrust attack with rapiers or katana/spear charge attacks. - Spells work too if you can space yourself and time it right. (not hard considering how slow it is)
You don't even understand why this thing is so broken, and you're *****ing about it being broken? That's cute. Didja know that you don't even have to finish the weapon art; you can just spam L2? Didja know that L2 has UGS level poise? Didja know that L2 can't be parried? Didja know that L2 deals Greathammer poise damage? Didja know that L2 not only costs less stamina than R1; it also packs higher attack speed and deals max damage on hit? Didja know that everyone telling you to chill out and modify your strategy are assuming that everyone who uses the Crucifix are scrubs who only spam R1? Didja know that most people who use the Crucifix are above casul? Didja know that you needed to git gud? Well now you know; AND KNOWING IS HALF THE BATTLE!
"Casters need options to blahblashblah". THEY HAVE **** OPTIONS! You want a ss? grab a longsword, make it crystal/dark/lightning. You want a gs? Moonlight gs. You want an ultra greatsword? Astora greatsword, make it crystal/dark/lightning. You want a great hammer? Great wooden hammer, crystal/dark/lightning. Do i need to continue? Even if casters didn't have options, they would need GOOD options, not broken ones. On my sl90 int build i have one of each type of weapon infused crystal and they all perform fantastically. And most of these people who rush to defend this thing every time someone calls it what it is (broken), are people who play at sl120. I don't even need to mention that this has the halberd speed with great hammer poise, we all know how stupid that is.
What the hell is the point of being a caster if you're just going to use regular weapons anyways? Your comment is spectacularly stupid

you must be a casual if you cant beat any weapon with your build at SL120, otherwise your build sucks or you do.
Don't understand at all the people that are so overwhelmingly upset about this weapon. It's a halberd, it's slow and can be parried, it has a predictable moveset, spamming the WA exposes people to backstabs for a solid 3 seconds each. Everyone always getting so **** angry about this game.
You're right Anon, don't worry about the replies, there'll always be scrubs who want to convince themselves that they're actually good at PvP when in actuality it's just that their weapon is broken. This is Santier's spear all over again, you can call them on it all you want, but you'll just get the basic-bitch "git gud" replies or "nuh-uh! It has this weakness!" even though that's besides the point since having a weakness doesn't change whether or not something is broken... People just can't accept reality.
git gud
Complaining about other people complaining. Typical plebian dummy
Do you mean to say that you're not skilled enough to beat a noob equipped with a basic-*****-stick? Git gud, scrub.
What level should be the upgrade for the weapon? +x?
Huh? It maxes out at +5.
I mean, I guess the guy was lagging since DS3 often has extreme cases of phantom range if your opponent is lagging, but I entered the swamp at SL25 and a guy with full hazel armor and this invaded me and killed me.
It was kinda annoying since for some reason my sunbro couldn't attack him/damage him and he seemed to have way higher stats as he took hardly no damage from my attacks compared to him nearly instantly killing me.
This has nothing to do with this weapon other than that he used it.
Any weapon has phantom range when the guy's lagging and it's stupid to see him swinging him over there and get hit while standing meters away.
But welp. Also I just hate people who don't upgrade to invade low level players. Come on.
Someone got twinked. Yeah, Armor doesn't make taht big of difference lategame, but early on against +3 weapon DPS...? 35% Damage Reduction shows. Twinks suck, but they're generally designed for gank-spanking. DS's PvP community is pretty*****ty group. On one side, you've got the twinkers *****ing about getting ganked, on the otherside, you've gankers *****ing about getting twinked. Can't we all just lay off the Estus and display a chivalrous bow, before we murder each other in one on one combat? Worst Twinks are the SL 20s that have max estus; my gawd, the chugging...
Why didnt she use this weapon when i summoned her for midir. Shira wrecked me in ng+2 to the point where she always almost 1 shot me with the weapon art
She does; but Crucifix deals split Dark/Physical damage, both of which Midir resists. Because it's split damage, Midir's dual resists practically ruins the Crucifix's AR. Quit *****ing about Shira not using a bad weapon choice against Midir, and be grateful that she aims for the face with Lightning Arrow (Midir's one and only weakness).

It's a shame this weapon is found in the ass-end of Nowhere after killing the last dlc boss of The Ringed City. I'm not going to want to bother using it if I've literally beaten the entire game. Also Gael is a bull*****boss that I don't want to suffer through. Hopefully when I finally play Dark Souls 3 and do a Corrupted Paladin build someone will trade me this weapon at a low level or I'll just hack it in if I have to.
You don't need to kill Gael to get it though.
Great weapon, totally one worth building around. Just curious as to who has been editing the page. Since when has Dark Blade improved R1 Spam? Dark Blade just increases AR; it doersn't effect your stamina costs or swing speed. As for the noob who mentioned that spiel about "strength scaling is better than faith scaling," you really need to do some math on that. Strength increases physical scaling only; Faith increases physical AND dark scaling simultaneously. 2 * D > 1 * C. But dat two-handing DPS doe! Shawdup. Faith also increases the spellbuff of your Talismans/Chimes, which increases the damage added by Dark Blade. A solid Faith investment grants significantly higher AR than a strength investment, even when two-handing. Weapon is a bit wonky when it comes to scaling. Intelligence softcaps at 10; Strength softcaps at 40 (27 if two-handing); and faith softcaps/hardcaps (thanks to the dual scaling, it literally peaks at) 50. Run Yorshka's Chime and Dark Blade with 40/10/50, and you'll be hitting over 800 AR, WITHOUT Clutch/Blindfold. On a weapon with spear-like range, greatsword speed and hyper armor, and a short range quick attack that can't be parried, deals Great hammer-esque poise damage, and packs UGS hyper armor. Yeah, the Crucifix is bull*****on so many levels, it's no wonder why so many hate it.
