Claymore is generally a little more superior, longer range, more useful move set, the twohanded r2 is a poke which can do colossal damage on Leo ring counters, which Bastard can't. I don't recall the Lothric Knights … Both suck. Which one is better, and why? Disastersaurus 7 years ago #1. All rights reserved. Claymore, was my pal since Demon Souls.
