      Really good secondary weapon for pure strength builds. Heavy infused at 56 strength and it's hitting 380AR, which is perfect. A heavy Broad Sword hits harder at 408AR, but the reach and moveset of the Long Sword is a better trade off imo. I love using this with the Fume Ultra Greatsword.

        The reason not many people are whining about the Longsword is because there is not very much to whine about. Since this weapon is severely underrated and noobs haven't found out about this yet then there is really no need to whine or complain about something that the player has not yet encountered. The reason behind all the salt from the Dark Sword is not only from the fact that its damage was reasonably high but also because of the way noobs used the weapon. They just spam R1 and after the fight act like they are untouchable legends.

        • So...26 Aug 2016 22:09  

          I just noticed something I'd like to share with everyone due to all the whining about the dark sword; this weapon, when at +10 and refined, has EXACTLY the same damage and scaling as the dark sword, and a much more usable 1h strong attack imo, and when element infused it actually deals out more damage. And all the while it requires 6 less strength and 5 less dex to wield, and weighs 1.5 units less, and has all the same moveset and stamina consumption. I guess before it got slightly nerfed the dark sword would've dealt out 5% more damage, which considering all the above it should've, but no, noobs wanted something to blame so they could pretend they weren't terrible and now the awesome looking dark sword is pretty much useless compared to the freaking long sword you can start the game with, yet I don't hear anyone crying "NERF THE LONGSWORD!"

          • Best weapon in the game!10 Jun 2016 22:28  

            Just use this and a Greatshield with (Greater) Magic Shield, timing your blocks and swings accordingly and you can defeat anything and anyone. Usable for any build. Any Infusion. The description doesn't joke.

            • Heavy or refine with strenght build?17 Apr 2016 15:27  

              I started off with a knight and im going for a strenght build. Is it better to go the heavy or the refine path with the longsword?

              • Outscaled useless sword.14 Apr 2016 07:03  

                Dunno why they put 2 swords doing same thing(same moves) but one is stronger then the other. Longsword is my favourite in DS2, its one of the only swords that doesn't look like fantasy sword. Sadly in DK3 it suits only as starting sword and has no place later on.

                • Filling tables12 Apr 2016 13:07  

                  PLEASE do not add your scaling to the tables, add only the base damage. When the game shows something like xxx + xxx in the equip menu, only the first numbers are the base damage, the second set of numbers (after the +) are the bonus scaling your character gets from his stats.
