What's Your Favorite KATANA?

Postby MosImba » Fri Apr 11, 2014 6:18 pm

Pretty new here, but I want to have some fun with y'all, so I'll be posting these regularly! I'm eager to know what your favorite weapons are! We lookin' at Katanas! Personally, I love them, even though the durability SUCKS. Here is my favorite Katana that I've used for the last parts of my normal playthrough, and in my NG+(I'm posting about the Stats that MATTER):

Lightning Berserker Blade+5
P.Atk: 168
Lighting Atk: 168
Counter Str: 150
Lightning Bonus: 46.6

Their are other numbers, but I feel these are the only ones that count, really. And this is on top of a DEX at 42 and FTH and 46. I love this thing, I can't deal with Chaos Blade or Darkdrift :)

Well, what do you guys like? Eager to hear it all!

If I had to use katanas, might as well go with dual washing poles :ugeek:

Washing Poles are in a mimicked chest at the Dragon Shrine. I plan to get one, and despite their having only 20 for durability I think it'lll be my favorite. Until then, I have this as my fav;

Dark Darkdrift+10;
Atk: 161 +18
Dark bonus: 161 +51
Para bonuses
Dex: C
Dark: B

Chaos Blade infused dark or fire for its reach, speed and power.

Earlier, Uchigatana +10. Eventually, Blacksteel Katana +10. For pure DEX builds, the BSK's S bonus really trumps everything else in my book. Occasionally I'll use the Washing Pole in bossfights because of its higher damage output, but I don't like it much otherwise for PVE. It's really annoying to use in narrow corridors because of its length. PVP might be a different story, though, I haven't tested it for that enough.

I got to NG++ yesterday, and I have to say the lack of durability is really becoming a problem for me there. Everything takes another one or two extra swipes to kill, and I practically always have to switch weapons by the time I get to a boss.

I got the Washing Pole and made it a Dark +10, but despite the awesome, terror-inspiring power, it's durability is s**t...and with the other katana, that was rarely an issue. But the Washing Pole's 20 means the near-breaking messeage pops up quickly. I'm really missing the good old days when durability never really mattered, now I can only use the Washing Pole casually or in boss fights only, luckily I saved my Dark Berserker Blade +10--now it's my "back-up waepon". Still didn't get the Chaos Blade but I think it'll be my new favorite--least of all for it's massive durability. Still...maybe there's a ring... anyone find a ring to reduce durability reduction rate? Otherwise my beloved Washing Pole is practically unusable (and I made her a +10 too... :( ) I think I mean find solace i the Uchigatana I never used...

Bracing Ring +2 basically doubles all your durability (by cutting your degradation in half). It's considerable for Washing Pole, if you think that combo would serve you better than another katana + a decent ring.

Eh, I'll take my Chaos Blade. Damage increase from other katanas is minimal (on my 40/40 build, anyway, and I don't have a Berserker's to test with), but the added range (that whole half a foot) is actually a large boon for getting people in PvP. And it's moveset is fantastic as well, with the 2H R2's combo doing great damage.

Also, it's so swag.
