      For anyone who wants to use scythes in pvp these weapons R1's and R2's are kinda slow but it doesn't care about poise unless they are past 125 poise which is rather rare. First these weapons are better two handed their power stance moveset isn't great for being aggressive and often you get hit out of power stance attacks since they don't hit at the same time, the jump attack is one of the best in the game however so if you want to build around that it's not a horrible idea.
      So when two handed or one handed your crouch/roll lights are your best friend they hit fast, very fast so while fighting spam that crouch attack you can even roll catch with them like with colossal swords but you have to take a step forward immediately after you land the 1st hit a lot of the time.
      Their Jump heavies have good range around you so jumping to the left or right of people when using them can catch them while staying relatively out of their weapons range. As for the running attacks they go far and are probably going to be the 2nd most used attack since again their neutral R1's and R2's are just really slow. However their R2's are decent at catching players that roll into you since they are slow so use those defensively.

        Anyone know why they shadow nerfed reapers? They didn't even stand out. Had super slow L1s, and now R1s. Can't find an answer

        • Anonymous

          For all the super rare weapon drops in this game, why can't the avian marionettes drop their scythes? It's not like reapers couldn't benefit from a little more variety.

          • Anonymous

            For a mostly defensive weapon in pvp these sure don't have the speed to pull it off. Range is ok and the recent poise damage at 125 for even lights are great but they don't have the speed they should have to be viable, you just get outspaced with harder hitting builds who hit slightly faster or have a little more range with attacks and a lot of times it's both.

            • Anonymous

              One thing I haven't liked about Reapers is that their charge R2 are too slow in comparison with weapons like Greatswords and Curvedgreatswords, specially the Scythe R2 that is. I hope From Software can improve it later on.

              • Anonymous

                I expext something like the Salt Reaver from salt and sancuary. I don't ask for something similar or too over-the-top, but just 4 scythe avaible it's a bit underwhelming. I hope they add some other scythe with the dlc.

                • Anonymous

                  This is probably the one weapon class that only one weapon ISN'T viable, but then again there is literally only 4 Scythes so...

                    I like what they did with these but I miss neck swipe and corvian r2's. The crit animations however, are sick.

                      4 scythes, 2 of them got high fth scaling, one has to be farmed... damn, feels like dex got shafted in the scythe category :/

                        Insultingly enough, vulgar militia shotel halberd (one of the shortest) has better range than scythe... Almost all reapers moveset cons would have been mitigated by just having better range (to at least similar degree like ds3 scythe), yes even the strong attack, but we are stuck with weapons that are almost twice the character lenght being outranged by everything but fist and claw weapons and hammers, sure you can put sword dance on (2) of them to have longer reach, but this is just sad.....

                          Theres a scythe in concept art among the legit weapons in the game that isnt in the game itself... I wonder if itll be dlc? It feels like something akin to a dream/st trina character.

                          • Anonymous

                            Maybe y favourite moveset out of all weapon classes. Every attack from crouching to jumping R2 is pretty good. Scythes from last two Dark Souls games have ben meh except for Friede's, I'm glad they stand out and feel unique in this game. Kinda miss the standand weapon art from DS3 and I really was hoping for some int scythes, but it is what it is

                                Interesting thing I noticed about reapers is how you can get a sneaky power attack from horseback. I was kind of pissed that reapers didn't have a hitbox while charging power attacks but because it doesn't it doesn't alert the enemies by hitting the ground and so you can actually get the bonus damage from unaware enemies with a fully charged heavy attack! It's kind of cool and while niche fits the theme of "reaper".

                                  I miss Friede's scythe. Not even the weapon skill, but the appearance and standard moveset. It just felt so simple and elegant.

                                    scythes in this game just kinda make me sad. They're cool and the job they do, they do it well, but man, i wish there were more than 4. Their main appeal is that they laugh at shields but that niche can be fulfilled by a couple other weapons, namely that one curved halberd and/or the ice spear Ash of War. So why pick a scythe over another weapon that can outperform it? Because scythes are badass and stylish as all hell.

                                    • Anonymous

                                      Why are the R1s just 3 repeating diagonal attacks and a 4th slower diagonal attack? Shouldnt have to powerstance to get some horizontal moves. They need to revise the single scythe set for a little variation

                                      • Anonymous

                                        I was dumped when figured out that powerstanced moveset is the same as katana’s. But slower. And Nagakiba is longer…

                                        But backstab unique animation is cool tho

                                            If I have to make a wish list for a weapon in the (possible) DLC, I'd take a Scythe with a Destined Death ability, like Maliketh's Black Blade, if possible.

                                                The people calling scythe in this game good or strong have never used scythe from DS3. If they have they would never call this weapon good in a faster paced game such as elden ring.

                                                                - you don't need to constantly two-hand, one-hand, or dual wield, all stances can hold up to each other in some fashion

                                                                  Scythes are fun weapons but sadly, they seem to be a bit lackluster compared to some other weapon classes.

                                                                  It feels like there is missing something when playing one of them. The damage is average, the swing speed rather slow and the Poise damage is also mediocre. The moveset is not to bad with some good range but it's definitely not as good as DS3 Friede scythe f.e.

                                                                  BUT From finally added a unique critical strike animation which is great btw!
                                                                  After seeing it tho, I kinda wish scythes had some special kind of innate crit multiplier with that decap animation. That would be cool!

                                                                  Anyways, conclusion is, compared to Twinblades, Katanas and some of the heavy hitting weapons they seem to be a little weak but overall it's still a fun weapon class which can work good on status or faith builds + these beauty's got some sex!
                                                                  So if you enjoy them or think they look cool, play them. Everything can work in Pve!

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Disappointing The gravity stone miner's weapon and the small flying marionette soldier's weapon aren't obtainable when the reapers class is lacking so much.

The poise damage is nice though.

You can imbue them with frost if youre running a Str/Int build for a frost+bleed proc'er for some great bursts of damage. You can also run a faith build with flame imbued and have Flame Grant me strength spell for some bonkers boosted damage. Theres more you can do to make the builds even stronger. For context, the Ogres in the underground Lyndell city can be dropped in a full L1 combo, no buffs. And because they are heavy and proc frost and bleed, they interrupt them alot.

I've been rocking a STR/FTH build with powerstance Grave Scythes and i shred through bosses and players alike, especially when i imbue the weapon with Bloodflame, i get Bleed procs in 2 L1's.

                                                                                                  Yeah they swing slow and you need to get your spacing down, but when you learn the pacing and speed of them, you're unstoppable. The running L1 is also a great roll catch that does 2 massive horizontal swings that come out SUPER fast. Using the Sword Dance Ash Of War is also insanely beefy and chunks health bars, a well placed L2 with Sword Dance can one shot a player.

                                                                                                  Easily my favorite weapon type at the moment, had to step away from my usual Straightsword playstyle once i tried these out.

                                                                                                  • Hot Take, but am I the only one kind of disappointed with the Reapers selection in this game? I mean you get 2 reapers that look basic, 1 that has a different moveset from the rest outside the AoW, and 2 cool looking ones that are both faith based. Not to mention the complete lack of blood and occult ashes of war for the weapon class.

                                                                                                    I get that the Halo and Winged Scythe's are good, but I just wish From Soft had added more Scythes into the game. For the Erdtree's sake, every other weapon class from dark souls 1 has a billion weapon options and scythes only get 4? c'mon man......
