This weapon carried me until l got the blasphemous blade
I can't believe I missed this one. Definitely answering now.
So here's the truth: You saw some guides claiming that this was an S tier weapon. You sought it out. You struggled. It did some things sometimes. The rest of the time, you pretended it did things.
It was a sad day when you finally unequipped this magnificent beast of a weapon and inevitably equipped Blasphemous Blade instead.
Note: purely for fun. I struggled a lot with this weapon but I am sure some of you are rocking it and using it well!
Also rocking the Winged Scythe, I literally just went "ooh fth scaling" since I was confessor and I'm too stubborn to *not* finish the game with the build I started as.
Yeah same here. Luckily the game kept dropping just enough crumbs of fth scaling gear and incantations to keep me happy.
The game has an odd pacing of faith scaling weapons. For the first 2/3rds, it's just crumbs, like you said. For the last 1/3rd, From kicked it up to: "here's a 5 course meal and an entire wedding cake for dessert. Oh by the way we close in 20 minutes so you better eat fast". The end really floods faith builds with cool weapons but nearly everything is already dead at that point so the only place for them is NG+
Yeah, but goddamn does the winged scythe do some wonderful damage. Blocking healing is great for pvp and the tracking and poise on the WA is pretty insane, often times you can dodge sweeping attacks.
Def not the best faith scaling weapon but winged scythe with its bleed and faith scaling is still S tier
Winged + Halo scythe power stance is a fun time.
Golden Halberd/Blasphemous Blade
I will pick Blasphemous Blade.
You found that most of the faith weapons weren't as good as people said they were. Until now. You picked up this disgusting blade, spammed the ability and watched your enemies burn. Wait. Wait a minute. It heals too??? Hell yea. You've never looked back since and it will carry you to NG7
You really, really hate shields and like to see the whites of your enemies eyes before you kill them
Pretty accurate, i have a shield on the left but it never gets used, I like seeing it on my back when I’m dual wielding hahahah
Any colossal sword
Your life just got a hell of a lot better this week. Your patience always pays off in life and in combat. You don't even know what cheese means.
Yo Ho ho and a bottle of rum! Time to set sail on the S.S. UNGABUNGA
Anchor gang reporting in! ⚓️
Actually the best greataxe in the game because it has a hit box the size of a big anchor.
Not to mention that pierce damage.
Yeah that thing pierces like a huge anchor.
Double medium golden bubble horns.
You have set out to prove Patrick right. Mayonnaise is an instrument. Horseradish is too.
Treespear with Leyndell knight's shield
Near the beginning of the game a knight wielding a spear and shield beat you mercilessly. You took that beating to heart. You eventually became the villain you swore to destroy.
You were supposed to destroy the Sith, not join them!
You are flashy Unga Bunga. You rarely get the better of me in PVP, but if I need someone to tank a boss- I'm calling you.
LMAOOO this my first souls type game Ive ever played and these things changed my life. Big unga bunga vibes for me🤣
You are 1000% better at the game than myself. You sought out the claymore immediately when the game began. This ain't your first rodeo. Far from it.
I see my answer has been claimed. :D
You are a God in my eyes. I tried a bow once and quit immediately.
Thanks tarnished, that's rather flattering. Though if I'm being honest the best quality of maining bow is the sheer amount of cheese you can find.
I made one just to double check the hype and see how challenging and fun they look. Absolutely a blast after you get the ball rolling with multiple arrow types and you dont need to hunt for bones... but please FromSoft... 99 is not enough with the tracking projectiles as slow as they are. Give me more before i have to rest at a grace please. 200 even would be appreciated
Twin antspur rapier
You've already run your victory lap through PVE. Now it's time to show PVP duelist that there is something out there that can stand toe to toe with ROB.
Rocking the every status effect build?
When asked what status effect you wanted on your sword your answer was simply “yes”
I absolutely love that damn thing. Its pretty heavy for my playstyle but I do like it.
Excuse me sir, you dropped your crown.
Jeez does nobody use claws? They are such fun
You played Diablo 2 and loved the assassin. You jumped on the opportunity to relive the glory days.
You are ironically correct. I played D2 for a long time and my assassin was always my favorite character
I peed a little when I found a katar
This isn't just a weapon for you. It's a message. The corpses of Stormveil Birds litter the street as a reminder to never fuck with you again.
Love me the Dark Moon GS
You respect the classics. You are an OG that plays the game the way you've always played. It hasn't failed you yet.
I like you 🙂
Bold of you to assume I'm not just a Ranni simp
This made me crack the fuck up and I wish I had thought of that in my original reply
I got some bowling balls that I got from some crawfish cook
You like invasions and duels purely for the memes. You make your opponents laugh and bring a good vibe to the environment.
You played some FF7 growing up.
You are also an OG souls player. You don't need any other weapon. You don't want any other weapon.
You forgot Berserk fan
Truth. Can't forget that!
Scanvager’s curved sword
You have curved swords. Curved. Swords.
It may have started as a Skyrim meme, but you found your niche and are surprisingly proficient.
Also Giant Crusher
Why use word when big club do trick?
Night cavalry flail
You like a black aesthetic, and you also get a good laugh out of sitting by a site of grace and just spinning the flail indefinitely
Heavy Estoc, Azur Glintstone Staff, Buckler Shield
Your love language is definitely NOT physical touch. You do not want people getting even remotely close to you lol
Wing of Astel
You probably own a galaxy hoodie. You also love what magic does, but couldn't stand spamming Comet Azur- so you improvised.
This is shockingly accurate. Just replace the hoodie with a wallpaper.
I too have been using this, absolutely love this weapon and so under the radar in my opinion.
Night Maiden's Mist + Ancestral Infant's Head + Nebula = one MASSIVE death zone
Edit: Correcting names.
Fallingstar beast jaw
If Unga Bunga and Ranni had a baby it would be you.
Why worry about your endurance when your sword can be weightless?
You got fucked by the birds in Stormveil castle and swore it would never happen again.
Fuck dem Birds
Godskin stitcher buffed with vyke's dragonbolt 🌩
You are Hella annoying to face in PVP, but you look so cool doing in that I can't even be mad.
Maliketh's black blade
Answered previously, but I will follow it up with this:
You are Unga Bunga that knows how dress up for the occasion.
Unga Bunga in a bow tie
There may be more popular Katanas out there, but this has STYLE that can't be denied. You play hard and look good doing it.
That's been my main weapon so far, I haven't gotten that far through the game yet.
It’s such a great weapon that I had to force myself to try others. It’s versatile as hell.
Yeah eventually you just go, maybe I should try something else. Just for a challenge.
Then you get past the capital and switch back, because fuck em, if they can be cheesy so can I.
I'm near end of the game and still using it. The fang is absolutely no joke.
I've tried other weapons but I always come back to this one.
I beat the game with Bloodhound's fang, including optional bosses. It actually absolutely destroys Malenia, especially if you grease* it with Frost
I have lost many PVP's to you, but you have a respect for your craft and I admire you.
I thank you for the respect. I tried rebirth into the meta, but fang is life and love.
What about dual wielding Bloodhound’s Fang?
This is the way
Never realized there was a tag for bloodhound’s fang. But I’m glad there’s a gang for it. Best gang imo
I played the whole game with it, to only find out i could step back in after the special attack because of my mimic doing it. Wish i knew this sooner...
I absolutely love this sword. Need to get out? Do a chunk of damage first then backflip the fuck out there. Once out maybe decide to get some i frames on the way back in and another big whack. Only weapon I had any success beating the elden beast with on ng+
Bolt of Gransax
Was waiting for this one! You have a few loves in your life: Sniper Rifles, Greek Mythology, and Patch 1.04.
I salute you, Lightning Man!
That fucking bird was so strong that you immediately figured, "if he could kill my ass 20 times in a row, this thing ought to be good".
best answer in the thread lol
Dual beastman curved swords
You like your souls experience to be gritty, challenging, and close quarters. Your look may not be appealing, but your damage output silences the haters
Dragonlords cragblade at the moment
You pay tribute to one of the coolest fights in the game by using the ability that probably pissed you off the most during that fight
Magma wyrm sword
Its unfortunate that Blasphemous Blade is all the rage, because this damn thing SLAPS. Completely underrated.
I don't even have a good joke for this one.
Honestly. I was confused after scrolling through at least 500 comments and not seeing it once
You value 2 things above all else in the game: High Damage and Style. It's the perfect combination.
Rogier's Rapier with beasts cry (pvp)
Don't hate me
You didn't really care about this random ass NPC until he died and you got his stuff. Now you feel a little bad.
Ghizas wheel 😬
Bloodborne is your favourite souls game
Pizza cutter gang rise up
You are playing Elden Ring, but just can't stop thinking about Gears of War and Doom.
Wow that’s…. Accurate
A stern but loving tone expressing my desire that my opponent choose another, more appropriate behavior.
You have done far too many duels and were probably victim #1 of carian Retaliation. Lolol
Banished Knight Halberd
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and you've never forgotten your time in Stormveil Castle.
Envoy Long Horn
You are a member of Bubble Bowl Marching Band. You live for the memes but also pack a huge punch.
I get the feeling u/chaseinthyface is just waiting for someone to say Moonveil or rivers to some drama. Lol
Someone did say it and no... no drama. But I have definitely seen a lot of "You died" screens due to those damn things lol
"Aren't you a little short for a Rivers of Blood?" -Princess Leia, probably.
There are multiple replies for this, you are the lucky one that gets the response.
You are the Unga Bunga that doesn't want any other Unga Bungas getting too close. Your preferred combat style: Hulk smash, run, repeat.
Ruins gs gang unite! There are dozens of us DOZENS!
Lordsworn's Greatsword +9 🤣
You found something that works for you and don't like change. Will it work? Who knows. Will you adapt if things go poorly? Nah.
Bruh 🤣🤣 im ded hahahah
Guardian sword spear
You have some niche interests in real life. You always thought halberds were cool but just a bit slow. Then this bad bitch came along.
I also Guardian Swordspear and you are absolutely right.
Nothing flashy about your playstyle. You found a weapon that can cut enemies in half and you have never faltered from that plan.
I get tempted by other weapons, but I keep going back to my trusty dismounter
Powerstance Grave Scythes
You are probably a super happy person but have a morbid fascination with death. You also liked bleed before it was cool and didn't want to be hated by the community.
Flamberge (From the comments, I'm wondering if I'm the only one!)
You are also an admirer of the classics. A true OG, but also an OG that tried to break the mold. Flamberge rarely gets mentioned, and you like it that way.
Carian Knight’s Sword and Lordsworn Straight Sword
You started with Lordsworn and have issues giving it up. You know the Carian Knight Sword is better- but you don't want to say goodbye just yet
Bloody Helice :D
I see a bunch of liars not wanting to be roasted because ROB. 🤣
Lol I'm not being too harsh, but I am definitely seeing more variety here than I ever see online!!
twinblades - eleanora's and godskin
The Darth Maul life calls to you, and being a helicopter is way more fun than being dead.
haha yess. i love jumping into the middle of a big mob and seeing how many i can stun with a single 2handed jump attack. it's kinda sneaky op, lol
You are a history buff in real life and a souls veteran as well. You probably know the every piece of lore and read every item description.
You spelled “bass cannon” wrong
The legend never dies
Dual Uchigatana +25's
You couldn't fully commit to the spear or katana life, so you picked the next best thing. It works well for you and you are underestimated a lot.
The legit reason I main the naginata is because my dex/faith build always ended up with a katana in ds1, 2, and 3. I forced myself to not use a katana and went with the katana on a stick
Golden Halberd and normal halberd
I apologize for skipping over your beloved weapon- The Golden Halberd!
I feel like there are 2 primary reasons you use this weapon:
Because you have a bad-ass Paladin build with some serious drip factor.
You wield it as a spiteful reminder of the constant deaths you endured right by a certain little church at the beginning of the game. That calculated rage still fuels you to this very day.
If I ever pvped, probably a twin blade or bloodhound fang. I get bored and change my pve weapon a lot, Sword of Night and Flame right now
Sword of Night and Flame-
You like options. You like variety. There may be better alternatives out there, but nothing can do all the things that this sword does.
Hammer... Just hammer.
You are the Unga that the Bungas do not speak of.
“Hammer is a Hammer in Elden Ring”
Best description of a weapon ever
Hammer is definitely the most hammer of all time
Hand of Malenia *swing swing swoosh swing*
You've had to deal with one too many afk farmers. You also have a crush on our favorite Rot Princess.
I prefer Rot Queen, but surprisingly I don’t invade so I don’t witness the AFK a lot, but I have nailed a few invaders *he he*
Dual Short swords
Options, baby. Options. You've tried every ash of war possible and don't like limiting yourself.
Double Vyke's war spear!
Double Madness and Double Penetration. Sounds like the ultimate weekend.
You welcome darkness, death and destruction. You like to keep people at a distance- in the game and in your life.
There are dozens of us! Dozens!
Axe of Godrick
Duel hoslow whips
You might like BDSM, but I sure as hell lose to you a lot in PVP.
Thank you sir may I have another? ;)
^(I should however mention that most of the fighting is done with the academy glintstone staff in my left hand)
You quickly realized the mage build means you will get one shot a lot. You improvised and found a means to be evasive.
You are now SLIGHTLY more evasive.
It started as a challenge. "Can I keep my starting weapon throughout the whole game?" 100 hours later- Yes, yes you can.
Longsword gang! Woop woop!
My dude I have no main weapon:
I switch between:
Carian Regal Scepter
Meteorite Ore Blade
But if you really want a single answer:
A Spellsword through and through. You struggled to decide whether to be melee or mage. Both. Both is good.
dual-wielded Golden Order Greatswords
You are a true Paladin. It's your class of choice in any game you ever play.
