      This would be the best straight sword in the game if it had better scaling. Seriously just 30-40ish more ar at 40/40/14 would be enough. It is one of the longest in the class with one of the better movesets. The scaling is a shame considering the boss you get it from is 1) endgame and 2) The boss is namesake of the kingdom the game is based in.

        Pretty low damage compared to other straight swords, but it more than makes up for it with it’s length and WA. Overall, a pretty fun weapon, good for fashion souls too.

          This weapon is pretty much a callback to demonbrandt (a lame ome, tho) with a cool weapon art, but that's it.

            This weapon is straight up bad, I mean you can use it, but why would you

            Its only use is catching people near death, but you could just use throwing knives (or git gud and learn to roll catch)

                WTF.. "Lothric Holy Swprd" => Faith scal E. A random Longsword with infusion is better. I think i got it now, if it's looks good ans is hard to get, it sucks.

                  For my fashion set I just use
                  Wandering Frozen knight
                  Lothrics holy sword
                  Ragged mask
                  Pontiff knight armour
                  Masters gloves
                  Sunless leggings

                  (Be sure to have 30 vigor or higher for some neat dodging or you can use havels ring)

                    This weapon had so much potential, sadly FROM didn't buff it in any way. Only good thing it has is the weapon art for finishing off people running away, but that's if you can get them that low considering how low the AR is.

                      I'm gonna be honest. I do not enjoy fighting against this weapon. That being said, it does look pretty cool. Wouldn't make a build around it though. In any case, I came here to see what damage type the WA was, to know whether to bring GMB or not. Apparently it's just physical so that wouldn't be useful. Now I just need to find a good counter strategy to opponents that constantly back away and I should be good.

                          This sword is for PvP mostly many wpns are better as of PvE such as gotthard twinsword and lothric knight sword. The build that suits this wpn is a dex/att build meaning builds which genuinely take advantage of superior WA. Of you want a quality build go pick up one of the other 2 wpns i mentioned it should perform way better for you.
