      Before anyone asks, R1 to weapon art isn't a true combo. The only thing I would have wanted from this weapon...

      • Anonymous

        i have a 40dex/45luck build and just realized that it keeps an A scaling in dex even if infused with hollow, it seems to fit my build perfectly

        • Anonymous

          Wow, remember when this weapon was super cool in DS1 due to high DPS and the super useful bleed aux? Wow, remember when this weapon was super cool in DS2 due to the busted instant parry in off-hand? WOW, ISN´T IT AMAZING HOW BAD THIS WEAPON SUCKS NOW?

          • Anonymous

            I wish this weapon was as good as it was in DS1, it's still a decent weapon but I feel like it was super good in DS1

            • Anonymous

              1.5 weight.. Infuse sharp and 2-hand it with OWCS, Pontiff's Right Eye and cast Carthus Beacon or Power Within.

                I finished DS1 "cosplaying" as Painting Guardian - used their armor set, used 2 of their swords, target shield and throwing knives. And just want to be sure - to get second PGCS I must start NG+?

                  This is the sword you would assume most fools would use. But then you realize those fools that use it actually know how to use it. And you should fear those fools more than any other fool.

                    I have tested it on a magic build. The cons are the very short range of the weapon with only the speed of a curved sword, and the small damage despite a TON of stats involved (cause to the "too good" scaling). So that's difficult on meta level.

                    • Anonymous

                      I just infused a painting guardian sword with dark and the scaling goes E/B/A/A , not E/B/B/B. This thing is crazy good if you mix both int and faith with dex.

                      • Anonymous

                        Fellas, it's an infusable flip-curved sword (the fastest R1s in the game when 2H) that averages ~400 AR WITHOUT buffs. I use this as my offhand on my Dex/Luck build, main-handing Frayed Blade, as its a parry tool, I can infuse it hollow for the +5 luck (my build has 35 luck + 5 luck from offhand for Frayed Blade bleed-outs), helps against weapon classes that katanas struggle with (greatswords in particular since the R1 speeds are very similar but katanas don't have HA; GS's like to get right in my face and hope I trade, but PGCS is so fast 2H'd that they have to back off), it's one of the very few weapons I can trigger bleed consistently with thanks to the R1+WA (not a true combo, I don't think but I land it reasonably often), and all for 1.5 UNITS. SERIOUSLY?? I promise, get your spacing down and this thing is an under-appreciated GEM.

                        • Scales beautifully with or without infusion I would like to try using in a dex build maybe. It would seem to go well with Dex and Int and crystal.

                            Yea wow such fun need 3 WA to make the BLEED PROC with a BLEED INFUSION, while with any other weapon you can do the same damage with one R1, kk.

                            • Anonymous

                              If you have a regular painting guardian curved sword and you use Carthrus Rogue on it with 40 levels in stamina you can hit another player/enemy 10 times causing a bleed build up of 550.

                                So I found this sword has a decent combo, not too broken considering that it's a bit hard to land but, if you land the weapon art you can combo into both R1s and maybe a third/cartwheel slash if your opponent has a brainfart like the few I just fought did.
                                With almost 500 AR (Plus 9 with sharp infusion at 40 dex 18 strength and Lightning Resin) I do an upwards of 900 dmg with just that combo (without the third R1/Cartwheel)
                                I find it's very fun and challenging to use, teaches you REAL spacing and proper SKILLZ (Not really)
                                Decent so far, but I wonder if it could oneshot with the pontiff eye ring and OWCS and a spell buff with decent scaling for maximum dmg.
                                Feel free to tell me the results anyone had if they tried it!

                                  Has S scaling in Dex when +7 and sharp infused, no idea if you get the S scaling earlier than that. Needs more testing.

                                    So, according to the 'Parry' page, this weapon has the "highest parry frame window". Anybody got numbers on this?

                                      Weapon isn't very good, however, its a very fun weapon to play with. I run a dex/luck bleed build and throwing hollow on this thing is a pure joy. Excellent dex scailing with the extra hollow scailing (adding my stat bonus' ar equals about 337). I usually mix up when I want excess bleed damage or raw damage numbers by keeping carthus rouge and carthus flame arc on me. With thr rouge i usually bleed targets in one loop of the weapon art but due to the lack of range I switch to arc to raise my raw numbers. I stack this with Carthus beacon, old wolf sword and pontiff's right eye. My dps is phenomenal and in pve I destory most bosses in a stamina bar. I offhand the corvian knife for better range abd nobody really expects it.

                                            then give it the same weapon art as the 1h r2 attack combo from the first game?

                                              I think this weapon is a spatula! You can paint very fast whole landscapes with it. (#Bob Ross!). If you think this further their "special fighting style" is just how they used this tool to paint. Ninja style!

                                                does it replace the kick with a backflip when in the offhand? also, does it need to be active to do so, or can you two hand another weapon and still get the backflip?

                                                  With the crap range, best ways to play are hit and run or full on aggression. Slap on a right eye for more damage on combos and roll catches or even left eye. Flynn's ring for some extra damage. Might as well use red tearstone and morrion blade since you gotta make every hit count and lead into long combos. WA can roll catch. WA can't be angled too far left or right (can't even go a full 180). R1 into WA doesn't work; they can roll away before WA finishes. I got an AR of 404 with 20/60 str/dex with 30% equip load and flynn's ring. Overall, 5/10 meh weapon

                                                    People were asking you to buff this sword. It was pretty bad, and not many people used it.

                                                    An infinite, guardanteed stunlock combo isn't what they had in mind.

                                                    Fix this s***.

                                                      I see you've got no stats for the poison infusion. I just hit mine with a poison gem at level 6. Here's the stats:

                                                      Physical: 113
                                                      Critical: 100
                                                      Bleed: 31
                                                      Poison: 49

                                                      Everything else is the same as a normal level 6.

                                                      I love this thing now, by the way. Four quick hits to a silver knight, then run away... two minutes later they're dead.

                                                        Collected the "blue version" in the new DLC but I cannot find it in my inventory and short after I got the message that told me I "miss the licence for this dlc" (paid for my Season Pass...) and returned to title. I reloaded and I could play further but the blue PG curved sword is still gone. Even thought I imagined things but later I found enemies using this weapon. So....where is it?

                                                          **Warning**
                                                          If you see anyone using this sword keep your distance. After patch 1.11 the weapon art recieved a bug. You cannot escape NO MATTER WHAT! Use 2h greatsword, magic, miracles, pyro, just don't let them get near you. If they do you are dead. Poise buffs also work well. If you can't be staggered they can't win. If you get staggered you will die.

                                                            I carry this around infused with Chaos as a secondary weapon in areas with enemies weak vs. fire. Nice damage, and the stun caused by lighting enemies on fire usually gives enough time to finish them off. Best thing is it only weighs 1.5, so you won't have to put on lighter armor just so you can carry around another weapon.

                                                              This curved sword is not good...its terrible. It has the same range as a dagger and the damage is just awfull, I put 60 on dex and the Ar was still lower then 450. It desperatly needs a buff. FromSoft plz...I wanna do painting guardian cosplays without going through hell.

                                                                This sword has a move that replaces the kick. When tapping forward and atk you do a quick slash then a backflip to create distance.

(just do +6 and give it a test run)

                                                                  • Buckler: 8 frame parry, 31 frame recovery, more parry rangeSword: 8 frame parry, 27 frame recovery, less parry rangeNot going to bother figuring out how much parry range is gained or lost, only that with the sword they better be right on top of you.

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous

It feels lower than the previous iterations, even. The bleed is nice. Very good weapon to use for weapon enchants due to the speed and stamina use if you are okay with being right next to the enemy.

                                                                              • 1. Travel to the Anor Londo bonfire.2. Turn around and make sure the lift is up. If it's not, bring it up. If it is, go to step 3.3. Walk down to the bottom of the stairs on the lift.4. As soon as you hit the bottom you will see a bridge (part of the platform) leading to the right.5. Walk out onto it.6. Walk further off it.7. Trust me. Use a prism stone if you don't.8. Walk.9. You will see a tower and bonfire off in the near distance.10. Walk out until you're next to the bonfire and roll / jump down to it.11. Walk inside the tower and look down.12. Make your way down the tower. There are 2 corpses with loot on it. One has the armor and one has the sword.
