      The best weapon in the whole damn game. There's no 'hard' boss it can't cheese, or at least make MUCH easier. Champion Gundyr? Cheesed. Nameless King? CHEESED. He spends the whole fight slow-walking at you. Friede? Well, not cheesed, but made much safer during the first and third phase, and she's filled with bolts to ruin her invisibility for good measure. Even at NG+7, this thing is indispensable. Long live the arbalest. Composite bow, go home.

        The stagger on this looked to almost break my character's back when they were hit. With the new poise rules, if you don't have a lot of poise it WILL stagger you.

          most gamebreaking weapon in pvp with exploding bolts free aimed at the ground dealing always 200-350 damage interrupting each *****in time nearly every move, it's so op, love to troll with it lol

          • Scaling?30 Apr 2016 01:37

            So, compared to the light crossbow for example, which only has the base damage, why does the arbalest have (base) + (scaling) for damage? The screen says it has no scaling.

              I think it's a great alternative to the avelyn. I don't know why but I just feel like its more accurate, maybe its because that one shot makes me try to time its shots better I don't know. lol<br/><br/>Once loaded, it shoots very fast one handed so it makes for a surprisingly strong ranged surprise when switched to. Plus it looks badass.
