Ludwig's Holy Blade from Best Bloodborne Weapons
A trick weapon typically used by Healing Church hunters. It is said that the silver sword was employed by Ludwig, the first hunter of the church. When transformed, it combines with its sheath to form a greatsword. It exhibits several departures from the workshop's design, suggesting that the Church anticipated much larger inhuman beasts.
Does the Arcane scaling effect paper or shell buffing? It's the highest scaling but does nothing for the weapon in it's natural state.
Does the Lore hint at Ludwig the Accursed?
Not really. It's not difficult to dodge in its transformed mode and also easy to parry while its normal mode is just simple sword slashes. The only thing I think is over powered is bone marrow ash on the Evelyn with 50 bloodtinge. Take out 80% of someone's health for one bullet.
What gems can boost the AR?
Any gems that increase physical ATK, but you can find gems that increase thrust attack specifically and make a few of it's attacks (charged transformed attack for example) deal incredible amounts of damage.
This shit is so powerful with the right gems, I managed to get mine to have an AR over 600
I was on the Alpha, the weapons were the saw cleaver, the mercy blade and the kirkhammer, not the holy blade.
