      These Reapers seems odd, maybe not well thought out? I'm not seeing a reason to upgrade from a Haymaker to a War Scythe or Red Eclipse. In both cases damage is almost the same (until you get a lot of Dex and Str, and even then it's a 3% difference), and the Red Eclipse weighs twice as much for HP Leech. You can make a case for upgrading to any other Reaper.
      Purifier effective for Wis builds
      Rusted Greatladle for about 10% more damage and strike damage for enemies that need it.
      Gravedigger if you use a lot of magic.
      Saltreaver has Poise damage and looks good on a strength heavy build.

      Then there are the last two.
      Red Eclipse or War Scythe if you want to waste an early Amber Idol and a bunch of salt to lose damage.

      Is there some advantage I'm not seeing? Longer range? Maybe War Scythe is for Heavy Armor builds to save a couple pounds? Is it only for fashion?

        I totaly don't like this weapons moveset. it'S to slow to my mind (up to now just 2handed wield) but the dmg.. it's not the worst.

          When parrying, you can't properly counterattack, it seems. And the aerial combo doesn't lock the ennemy in air, like with the sword. The saltreaver also doesn't scale on dex, which is kinda strange (since you can stunlock some bosses with it, i guess it's not that much of a loss, but still).<br/>For those who doesn't know, the basic combo is : Attack, up + attack (spin attack), down + attack (then aerial)

            Spin Attack?23 Mar 2016 22:05  

            I was battling some enemies once with the red eclipse and suddenly I did a spin attack. I was surprised because I had never done this before. I heard that you can perform it by pressing 'square' 'square' 'triangle' but that just does an attack similar to the first 'square'. Does anyone know how do it?

              non-lethal?21 Mar 2016 02:19  

              I've noticed that when i parry a blow with the haymaker (or maybe reapers in general) that no matter what it doesn't kill, so is this a bug?
