Well i just started a new character, and i want to limit myself to two weapons. i did this with my main character; only using the hammer and LS (specifically for if i need a tail). i didnt do this on purpose, it just kinda ended up that by the time i reached high rank those two classes had the highest upgraded weapons so i just went with it.
the two weapons i want to try to use are the Lance (moderate experience) and the Swax or GS. i havent decided which one yet but i have 0 experience with the swax and only a bit more experience with the GS. so here are my questions.
Lance - is it like the SnS where i need one for each element / status or should i just focus on a couple? are there good LR and HR sets for evade or guard lances or am i just boned till i get to G rank? with my hammer i use HR Barioth armor right now, with the attack/defence and guard boost it seems like it would be a good set if you can slot guard up
swax - same elem / status question. whats the deal with phials?
GS - ok i know if i use the swax i basically have a GS as well but just from messing around ive notticed the GS have huge raw damage similar to the Hammer, but they also tend to have high elem / status numbers. should you make multiple elements for them or just go for best raw / sharpness like with a hammer?
and i guess the final question, for each class what are the weapons i should aim for having (besides dios)
thanks a ton
tl:dr - what are the best Lance, Swax, GS and why? and what path should i take from a fresh character?
