      I've been rocking a light roll build with bloodhounds fang and it's been fine. I've been running through stuff with almost no issue. BHF is mad heavy though, 2.5 lbs heavier than this. And I can actually wear clothes with this so the drip unreal. For real tho, I haven't done a tone with it yet but it's basically impossible to get really any poise period on aight roll build without throwing an insane amount into stamina, but that AoW gives you insane hyperarmor. I've been whacked by one of the mounted spear knights in leyndell at the beginning of the move and didn't get knocked out of the animation, so this becomes veeeery handy for me, a tarnished with all the structural integrity of a wet napkin. It feels so much faster and smoother, not nearly as clunky. And no INT scaling for frost! I was so happy about that. I could keep my pure melee dex build and not mess with my Stat spread. Obviously the AR is lower, and I haven't done much testing against bosses, but so far this feels really good.

      • This would be a 10/10 weapon if you became a helicopter when powerstancing. Still, nothing short of an amazing weapon. A cool alternative to frost builds without stinky blue. Has a learning curve but effective once you get used to the moveset. Frostbite buildup on the AoW that sends chills down your spine. Makes your head spin with how amazing it is. I might be straight but I would become curved if this weapon was anthropomorphic or something idk.

          In my opinion, this is one of the most unique weapons in the game, given its design, moveset, frost buildup, and weapon art. I feel like I mostly hear people complain about the weapon, primarily its range and swing speed. Its damage is also a little low but the frost buildup could make up for that. The weapon art seems really good and frost buildup is always a nice benefit. So overall, is this really a lackluster weapon (mainly in PVE) or is it just that it's overshadowed by things like the bloodhound's fang and could afford to be improved with some slightly tweaking, but is still a fine endgame choice?

            At the very least either the attack speed should be buffed so that it's faster than other curved swords, or the size of the weapon needs to be bigger

            At least you can do a little spin. It's also got frost bite, which is pretty neat

              The first dragon in Farum Azula was kicking my butt a bit. Had trouble using bolt of granseax, had trouble with icerind hatched, pulled out this bad boy and the weapon art annihilated the dragon, and the fight was a cake walk. Say what you want, but this sword has its uses.

                How none of you have even thought to mention this is just baffling to me..

                Fire's Deadly Sin resets Frostbite upon proc'ing, no weapon or other fire spell needed to swap to, and the ash of war Zamor Ice Storm procs Frosbite stupid fast. It also breaks stances easily with just a couple R2s. Did I mention you get Hyper Armor during this?

                Yeah this thing kicks ***. Use it.

                  Important:

                  Ive found that it breaks poise faster than other curved greatswords. It also seems to have higher hyperarmor.

                    Potentially good weapon if it weren't for the bad range and that it's (probably) slower than the other curved greatswords.

                    • Anonymous

                      I was playing around with some weapons earlier and it feels like the R1 chain is the same speed as regular CGS's R1 chain.

                      The main difference between them is range (Because Zamor Curved Sword is much shorter than other CGS's) and the area of the attacks (ZCS's attacks all go from your front to your right side, while regular CGS's slash to both sides)

                      Outside of that, the Frost build up on this weapon is kind of tragic compared to a Frost infused CGS (Which will reach 127 build up at +25). However it's WA is pretty nice, does good damage and frost build up as well as having a nice area.

                      However, it's R1's look really cool (If a little silly for fans of weapon based martial arts) and what's life without a little Elden Drip?. Sadly, powerstancing makes you lose the twirls and get generic CGS powerstance moveset, even if you use 2x Zamor blades...

                        I maxed this out and was loving it paired with a Monk's Flameblade for the fire-and-ice of it all, but having to 2H the flameblade to use Flame of the Redmanes for frost resets was a bit tedious, so I tried investing in Bloodhound's Fang for the first time after several hundred hours. At +9 it does more damage than my maxed Zamor. More reach, can buff it, still has a passive status buildup, faster R1s. Oof. So there are only two reasons to use Zamor: 1) poise casting Zamor Ice Storm and 2) twirling like a beautiful dancer, but with a bigger iron than Flowing Curved Sword.

                          Is this weapon better than Bloodhound's Fang in general use? I mean, it hits not as hard as Bloodhound, but its frostbite can lower enemies' defense, and its skill is quite more useful, so any opinion?

                              a lot of people are talking about the damage scaling and comparing it to other curved greatswords and whatever but what most of you are missing is that when you swing the sword you do a little twirl. you do a fancy little spin and you twirl around and it's very funny. so please make sure to keep this in mind. thank you.

                                I'm honestly not sure for what build this weapon is made for, cause if your going for frost intelegence build pretty much most big cold infused weapons will deal almost the same amount of damage or even higher then this thing even while dealing split damage and taking into account enemy defense...
                                If for dexterity or (if your insane) for quality the Bloodhound fang exists which has bleed and deals 100 if not more damage then this, while all other curved greatsword will deal more damage on physical infusions, sure one might say its for cold without need to invest in int, but freezing pots are better for these and small enemies would likely die before frost even procs, which only lefts out it's weapon skill Aoe...
                                Overall cool looking weapon with interesting weapon skill, that get overshadowed by pretty much all other curved greatswords....

                                  Might just be me, but it feels like this sword has a unique boost to its stamina consumption, as in - it consumes a lot essential stamina then the other swords. But like it said someone needs to test that it could just be a feeling because of the unique flowing style.

                                    The fact that u can make it enchant probably makes it one of the strongest frost weapons and most versatile one at the same time

                                      fun thing i learned while fighting battle mages in the area in haligtree before loretta.... the ice storm pushes magic spells away....

                                      • I imagine that we have to wait for DLCs for any good Frostbite content? I mean, I am doing an ice queen cosplay and I have no idea what to do with it. Just use Icerind Hatchet until late game?

                                          i was excited to be able to use this weapon until i equipped it god did it shrink. It looks so pathetic. Idk who in FromSoft was like " ye that size is about right" for a >curved greatsword< It looks more like the size of a cleaver than anything else.

                                            Seems to swing a hair faster two-handed versus one-handed. Not enough to compensate for its short reach and just a pinch too slow speed, however. Not a weapon that 'feels' comfortable.

                                              I power stance this with quality monks flameblade. Zamor ice storm + flame of the redmanes is a boss melting combo

                                                Very unique weapon. Unique moveset, ice build up with no damage and a unique weapon art.

                                                Some things to note
                                                1)first swing with the weapon while standing still is kinda slow.
                                                2) it's pretty short for a curved greatsword
                                                3) the weapon gives you a decent amount of poise allowing to tank a hit from a shortsword or something.

                                                  Such an elegant weapon, fell in love with it as soon as I swung it the first time.
                                                  One of the best designed weapons in terms of flavor imo, not just something you just swing like a brute like with every other CGS, its like a dance this time.

                                                  Sadly, the low range and slow LAs limit this greatly.

                                                      Ah man I tried to love it, I want to love it, but the first light comes out a bit too slow. Faster enemies can constantly stagger you out of it if you don't have any poise, I'd give it a buff just for the first light attack, really tricky to use with it's low range. Otherwise one of the most (if not the most) unique weapons in the game.

                                                        The 4th attack in the light attack chain (last attack) seems to do about 20% more dmg than the previous one, i'm on first NG have this at +10 in Raya Lucaria, hitting those zombie weak mobs for 850 on the third attack, and then got 1100 on the 4th attack.

                                                        Also the first attack in the heavy chain seems to be quicker than the first attack in the light chain :P
