      The light attack varient in my experience is good for group kills tough you have to be surprisingly close to hit given the forward step animation and if the target is low hanging Close to the ground, it can still miss. The heavy attack varient is a single target high damage blow that can one shot most mobs and stagger elite and boss mobs in 2 to 3 uses. Over all it is super satisfying to use and has decent versatility, but requires situational awareness and recognition.

        As someone who has never used this and only his fought it, I don't really mind it because it's pretty fair to doge but what the **** is that damage like damn it's more than a colossal

        • Can i still parry with this? It was a nice thing to learn because it has a smaller window than a shield and it really felt like i mastered the blade like a Samurai or something. Tried it but i couldnt get it to work. Is it possible?

            So if this only works on katanas and all the non-somber ones have it as default, what's the point of it being an ash you can collect? Unless wakizashi has quickstep but I've yet to find it.

              Anyone getting a unsheathe bug? After second phase cut scene the player starts phase 2 in unsheathe stance if the skill is used as last strike of 1st phase. Wasnt pressing L2, happened on Malenia and Godfrey.

                Why does this AoW hit like a charged R2 colossal sword when it's lightning speed. Fromsoft: "OH hey let's give one of the fastest attacks in the game a 4x damage multiplier, sounds right to me!" My God, pull the katanas out of your asses and balance the game already!

                  are there really no variations on this in the whole game? I really miss the flurry and shockwave options you got with the Frayed Blade from the DS3 DLC.

                    You might be temped to use this with nagakiba but try it with uchigata. Uchi is way faster and near insteant.

                      Dont know if its a bug, but this does way more dmg with lightning infusion. Ashes appear to scale with their core attributes regardless of infusion, and scale better with the right infusion. On my quality build keen and quality unsheathe have comparable AR, but lightning infusion does 30-40% more damage against the knight outside of prayer room. Regular lightning r1s do maybe 10% more dmg because of their low resistance, but 30-40% is something else

                        The r2 with a nagakiba is stronger than a giant greatsword. I think the somber katanas may have been a distraction

                          The heavy attack comes out really quickly in its own right, so what's the advantage of the light one? Is it just there to be even faster?

                          • This is most likely the strongest Ash of war in the game if you build for it right. In pvp it easily one shots most people. Moonveil is nothing compared to a regular Uchigata with this.

                                This is one of the most reliable AoW in the game. I started with the Samurai class, and I basically finished 90% of the game using this AoW. It comes out quickly, has good range, deals a lot of damage to both health and poise, and it looks rad as hell. Put this on the already long Nagakiba and you now have even more range! With this setup, I managed to beat Malenia on my own without summons. It's a very satisfying AoW to use!

                                    In the Blazing Bushido Build u say that unsheathe would change the Variation of a Katana to "Quality". I tried this and it actually doesn't apply "Quality" but "Keen" instead. Is there a different Form of unsheathe or are u able to change the Ash of War in any way?

                                      Is it worth it to put this skill on an Uchigatana for the added Dex attribute scaling? (D->B)
                                      *assumption: Going for Dex build.

                                        isnt LT+RT literally always better than LT+RB? Same range, same speed, same recovery time... It just takes up more FP. Right? Or am i missing something?
