      I'm surprised there was so much talk about this weapon not being as good as it was in DS1.

      The claymore hardly got worse. It's still an excellently well rounded weapon with good reach, good scaling, and reasonable stat requirements. About the worst thing I could say about the claymore is that it doesn't outshine its competition as much as it used to, but that's just because there are so many excellent weapons to choose from this time around.

      Straight swords might be outperforming it in PVP, but this is still one of the most reliable, all purpose weapons in the game for PVE.

        If you throw a Blessed gem on this with 60/60/50/50 str/dex/int/fth this a very solid weapon for paladin/regen builds, I pair it with Ethereal Oak shield and a Bountiful Sunlight before bosses (bountiful light when it wares off) I can Easily tank an entire pontiff 4-5 hit combo and drop blast on ng+5 and take only around 100-300 dmg which to my 1800 Hp is nothing. my armor is Cathedral Knight helm Fire-witch chest and gloves with Lorian legs

            Can someone confirm if Quality is really C/C scaling all the way down? I only ask since someone noticed an error with the Str scaling. (See post Anon. 12 Dec 2017)

              This maybe just a game mechanic but i am seeing that this weapon degrades alot more, and i just use the simple RB attacks. Anybody want to fill me in on why that is. (other than that, this is something that will never leave my side)

                Funny how the guard of this weapon impales your shoulder every time you're two-handing it (This goes for almost all the greatswords with a guard).

                  Nostalgia for sure. I'm sure this will get down voted but as a new souls player I felt like I'd never be any good without a fast weapon type. This sword bridged that gap, opened my mind to ugs, ga, gh, and showed me what git gud and wrecking dark swords was really all about. I don't hate SS' or even dark swords, and it's only my opinion but to me it's way more fun.

                      A good weapon with a preferable moveset... A wide a range with pleasing damage... Highly recommended in early stages... Buff with a raw gem to make this lethal

                        Uhhh, Claymore got a buff apparently. Heavy infusion +10 gets A scaling. With 66 str, it has a 2h AR of 554!
