Bastard Sword Analysis

Lacks Offensive Power

When compared to other large swords, the Bastard Sword lacks power. Furthermore, the straight sword the Knight class starts with has longer reach compared to the Bastard Sword. One advantage of this weapon is that you can get it very early at the Boletarian Palace.
