      Just tested today (bit late, but oh well).

      The Weapon Art R2 is PURE PHYSICAL DAMAGE. A Black Knight Shield and Knight Shield both completely blocked all the damage.

      It seems that the Weapon Art R2 also does about 1.5x more damage than a standard R1.

        The guard, handle, and pommel of the sword somewhat resembles the wings of the angels in the DLC. There is little reason for the sword to look so organic, so what would be the lore implications of the angel that visited Gertrude being killed to make Lothric's sword?

          My theory is that the twin princess greatsword is the real sword of the prince. And the other 2, holy and Lorians, are just illusions like the two princes themself. They are meant to represent they owners two sides, outer and inner, and thats all. One strong but deformed, the other one beautifull but weak. "Lorian of Lothric" only had one sword in the end. the one we get from fusing the 2 illusions.

            "Holy" doesn't automaticaly mean "faith" in Lothric. From what I saw the royal sorcerers tried to fuse miracles with intelligence and created this "holyness" whatever that is. And the prince is using holy sorcery(!) for example. Not holy miracles. Only normal ones like Wrath of God. Means just because it is holy doesn't mean it has to scale with faith. In my DS3 version the sword doesn't even has "Holy" in its name. Here it's just called the "Platinsword".

              This and the blessed gem are perfect examples of From shafting faith builds. Why even have faith in the game if everything that uses it besides lightning damage is just plain bad in every way?

                God damnit Fromsoft, it would have been so easy to give this te Sunlight Straight Sword treatment and make this viable for miracle builds! Instead we are left with this crap...

                  i think this should absolutely be balanced according to the sunlight straight sword, if the S3 is a support faith straight sword, then this should be a solo/invader faith straight sword
                  current stats for me with 30/35/30/40 at +5:
                  S3: 196+207(403) with S3 buff: 449
                  LHS: 196+159(355) with S3 buff: 396

                  so one might say "well just make the scaling the same and give a pontiff-like buff to the lhs right?" NO, see, that's not enough because while it might seem that the oath of sunlight is just a buff for the S3 and as a support for your friends AND your other weapons(which i guess could be balanced saying that the LHS W-art is just sas strong if given a pontiff buff extra skill) it also adds on top of it the fact that the S3 can be buffed both by magic and items, while the LHS can't in ay way other with body boffs like oath of sunlight and sacred oath.
                  given that from will never make the LHS buffable, i'd say give it the same str/dex scaling as the S3 but with even better faith scaling aswell as the pontiff like buff.

                  consider that the S3 along with a crystal chime+5 lightning blade and the oath of sunlight with those stats(which should be less or more the ideal for these straight swords, at least by intuition without considerin int) gets to an absurd 617AR, a non-buffed dark lothric sword is 548(c-c-a-a), while a lightning one is 498(d-c-s)
                  in my opinion, it should have enouh faith scaling that with those stats it should reach by base stats the AR of the S3 with S3 buff and with the pontifflike buff it should reach about less or more the strenght of the lightning lohric sword with these stats(which should be stronger with say, 30-40-35 than the buffed lhs with 30-35-40)

                  so in short:
                  give the same physical scaling as S3
                  give it abundantly higher faith scaling than S3
                  give it a pontifflike W-art buff

                  and also change a bit the scaling of the lightning lothric sword to match a slightly more physical damage focused build than the self-buffed LHS, so that it wouldn't be too weak in comparison.

                    If its blessed then it should count for a blessed weapons regeneration Hp and dealing extra dmg to reanimated. Give a D Str ,C Dex ,C Faith would make it viable for Faith Builds. Also wouldnt it be cool to have the Faith version of Crystal soul spear like Lotric uses?

                      They should've given this weapon the Sunlight Straight Sword treatment. Or at least something remotely close.

                        This weapon need some serius faith scaling buff. i feel like Str: E Dex: C Faith: C at +5 it would be a good choice for miracle casters.

                          I like how it didn't start off with faith scaling so From tried to rectify that with an E at +5. Thank you so much. So helpful.

                              No matter how much I wish, the weapon art on this is just never going to be worth minus 120+ AR versus your average straight sword in addition to being unable to be buffed. FROM needs to heavily buff the faith scaling or just buff the base damage significantly if this is ever going to be worth using. :(
