what's your /vrpg/ swordfu? for me it's chillrend
>>
>>2597984
Barely counts as /wrpg/, but you can't really argue with Frostmourne.

Actually, practically all good REAL rpgs have dogshit swords. I guess there is a sort of nice one-hand sword artifact in Tyranny, and it also does a sick AoE burst. If we count Fromsoft games as RPGs, then we get some more options, and I personally would say the good ol' classic Claymore as shown in Elden Ring takes the cake, with the Cavalry Sabre looking sword from DS3 DLC taking second place of the series.

The only weapon I have any sort of attachment to is the Scraping Spear. Very cool weapon that takes advantage of the games systems like weapon durability and item burden and makes DeS' notoriously turtley PVP fun since you will 100% win the long game if they decide to run away and eat grass.

I'm sorry anon, but in games where you can reliably take 10+ hits without even slowing down that extra reach just isn't worth much.

I wonder if there's any wrpg that does spears well. Morrowind has them but they're only particularly useful over other weapons if you're constantly jumping back away from your enemy. I'd rather some heavy infantry play. Otherwise it's just Dark Souls.

I like this part of a world that's old and filled with magic, that over time people can and will make sort of stupid magic items. Wizards as old people with no sense of what they're doing, just making shit is a great thing.

I've had a lifelong love of fiery swords, but special mention has to go to the Sommerswerd, from Joe Dever's Lone Wolf book series, and more recent video game.

Godly artifact of holy sunfire? Yes please! Also didn't mind the stylistic change in the video game--instead of a broad-bladed single hand sword Lone Wolf uses as a primary weapon, it's reimagined as a claymore-size blade he pulls out for 'artillery' strikes.

DS's zwei has to be the single most satisfying weapon in all of gaming to me.
DS1 had the best moveset, but every game has some lovely moves:
>1's forward momentum overhead chops
>2's retarded quick half slash r2
>3's shieldwrecking charged r2
>ER's running sweep
Who cares if other weapons do more damage?
Who cares about muh striking supremacy or muh blood?
I want more zwei action.
