      Has the page been locked? I wanted to put an update in about a unique R2 attack the SoW has that is not listed. At +5, on my all-20's character (20 str/dex/int/faith), this attack can do roughly 500+ damage and as far as I know, has a unique animation among Reaper weapons where the player takes a step back in place while twirling it similar to a twinblade R2 I believe? Hits I believe 3 times for a large amount of stamina, and seems to have good stagger potential in both PvP and PvE, and even hits enemies on your right side/close to your right backside oddly enough. Maybe that was lag from online play however, but it was a good deterrent against a backstab.
