DRK Weapons

Post by Profgoten » Wed Feb 13, 2019 1:22 pm

I'm going to unlock DRK when I log on tonight and I was wondering which is the better choice for a weapon a Great Sword or Scythe?

I have been using a Scythe on my WAR (capped to my current level I think) But I think I remember hearing someone preferred GS.

So I'm just wondering other players opinions on this.

I think most people use Great Axe until Guillotine since Sturmwind is a much better weapon skill than anything Scythe gets until Guillo.

I used Sword and /NIN on retail when I leveled DRK, I had sword merits and Fast Blade is hard to beat early in the game, it's very strong. I was only going to 37 though, I eventually went to 70 (for Maat's Cap fight) but it was mostly in Besieged so I didn't really bother switching to a different weapon later, I just used a Great Axe since I had that leveled already from Warrior and the fight was sort of a pushover.

Huh, I've never used a Great Axe in game before, I always used Sword/shield or scythe.

I think I may take a look at using a GA in the early stages.

Thanks for the input! :D

It was usually Great Sword until you got Guillotine, and then Scythe.

Great Axe is great in lower levels. Once you get Soul Eater, you can easily hit 300+ with Sturmwind.
