      28 STR FOR A D E X WEAPON!?!,
      JESUS, the weapon is absolutly awesome, do not misunderstand me but that is quite a crushing str requirement for a weapon that gains a large majority of its damage from dexterity

        Honestly, very fun weapon. Good damage, balanced moveset, great WA, and stylish as hell. Shame that From patched out the combo but still highly recommended.

          I've just started using this weapon today and I've already fallen in love with it, it has everything you'd want. Good damage, great moveset, good range, hyperarmour in some of its attacks, a powerful sword art and amazing tracking. The bonus damage against demons is nice throw in as well. Downside it can't be buffed or infused but that's not really a problem since it already has good scaling and damage. This thing is amazing on my quality build and I high recommend you use it as well if you have a quality build.

            So the the R1 into fully weapon art combo was considered too overpowered yet From had no problems with the Splitleaf's true combo. God there are some PHENOMENAL thought processes that go on with Japanese game devs when it comes to balancing things.

              it did slash damage in DS1/R, so why naut here? look at how slim it is, it's not broad enough to be standard

                In DS1 this baby was secretly compatible with the Leo ring. While that isn’t the case in DS3, I’m pretty certain that it does have a hidden counter damage bonus. Also, R1 L2 R1 can continue with R2 L2 R1 if your opponent doesn’t double roll away after the first combo.

                  I thought it was too good to be true, this does not have an r2 r1 l2 r1 combo, if it did it would out damage the splitleaf even with buffs.

                    This beauty helped me end the dreadful Demon Prince after countless tries. I guess the added damage against demons helped, but probably so did the practice I had after so many failures.

                      You know, this was the first weapon I died to in my first ever duel? He had killed me in one combo, which made me curious about how each weapon functioned and that was the start of my journey in becoming a decent PvP'er.

                        Majestic two handed R2 and it’s overshadowed by the SLGS so I get to feel slightly less like a meta head, one of my faves

                          If you’re good enough to get it, this thing wrecks at level 25. Used it to farm my swordgrasses in about 2 hours

                            Old habits die hard... also the sweet spot gives me flashbacks to how OP halberd really were in ds2 if you spent an unhealthy amount of time learning spacing
