Dunno what the figure is now, but it used to get 1,200 damage R2 pokes on the counter in PVP with support rings. 5 Hollowslayer Greatsword The Hollowslayer Greatsword is a fantastic weapon throughout the entire game due to it having a 20% damage bonus against any hollow enemy which includes a number of bosses. there are other dex spear option though. User Info: DuneMan. My 208 AR +1 Hollowslayer Greatsword is doing massive damage to many hollows/humanoids. The downside is not every mob are hollow. the spear has poison, shield pierce L2 and heals you on kill, so it's more interesting at least. An honorable mention would be Hollowslayer Greatsword as it deals with 20% bonus damage against Hollow. It lets you build dex and still get a good greatsword-type moveset with good scaling really early in the game. Thats not really good GS,Try Hollowslayer greatsword,that thing is my favorite and there are basically no downsides,exelent move set,exelent weapon arts,good poke,very good damage (40/40),and VERY light allowing you to wear whatever you like. if you run a dex only build then it's your best available greatsword unless sharp infusion brings another one on top. DuneMan 4 years ago #8. Personally, coming from Dark Souls 2 it was one of my favorite weapons until it was outscaled by another dex-based greatsword. Formerly known as Kensage101. The downside is not every mob are hollow. The Black Knight Sword is another good sword to have at mid-level as it is good for stun-locking weak armored and low poise enemies. the greatsword is not that special afaik.
