      I can't stand dealing with these weapons in pvp. They have straight sword levels of phantom range on their 3rd R1 but with the power of an ultra weapon. Would not miss them at all if they didn't come back in Elden Ring.

        I swear just about every person who uses these weapons just spam running attacks like there's no tomorrow. It's gotten to a point where I had to equip a parry shield. I never parry since I don't know how to, but they don't know that, so they act more cautious lol.

          Only 5 in total, 60% have the same weapon art, one is locked behind covenant grind and for the last one needs a dlc.. Not a single boss soul weapon either. It's a damn shame this weapon type was so neglected.

            2h fully charged r2 truecombos into 2h jumping r2. Tons of damage, acts quickly and still leaves you with enough stamina for 2 more r1

              If you're having difficulty landing a running attack and infusing Sharp/Heavy/Hollow etc, you can charge at them, use a Pine Bundle (applying while running looks like you're swinging), have them roll in response, and follow up with running R1.

                  Contrary to the description here, no curved greatsword displays innate poison. Only carthus curved greatsword has innate bleeding.

                      Which cured GS has the most range? Have been using Exile lately, and it just doesn't seem to hit anyone unless up in their face.

                        Pros: High damage, some of the highest hyper armors of all weapons, have weird parry times, hyper armor applies to running attacks, seem to benefit very highly from counter attacks.
                        Cons: Takes some high stamina, and have a longer duration for people to counter-hit you in
                        Summary: These have almost no counters, just go ham! Wooo
