      for pvp this fits the same play style as with crypt blacksword, it is amazing for baiting. the second r1 attack (1h&2h) is alot faster than most people think. this weapon also has high damage, reach and consumes less stamina than the other ugs's. also aiming attacks is great if you get used to it. 10/10, this might even be my favourite weapon in the whole series

        I would recommend not locking onto your targets with this sword, locking on and swinging with this is atrocious. There's probably better swords (that are also easier to upgrade), but this one is cool nonetheless.
