View Full Version : Fast Soma weapon that is NOT the Valmanway

Okay, so now my boyfriend is searching for a weapon that is fast for him that is not the Valmanway (until he can get one). Anyone know one that could work?

Yasutsuna might work for Soma.

he can equip Yatsu, but it has a pause between slashes.

Clearly you didn't read.

He has a Yasutsuna, but unlike Alucard, Soma pauses each time. Not exactly our idea of fast.

Soma can also use the Muramasa, but it's got about the same delay as a Yasutsuna but a little more powerful.

There's nothing nearly as fast as the Valmanway for Soma, I'm afraid.

Kaiser Knuckles or Whip Knuckle work well for Soma if you want a fast weapon, especially good if you don't have valmansway but do have yatsutsuna or muramasa. Use it as a secondary with succubus to quickheal.

Another option could be the Gungner from Brauner on hard. Not especially fast but it hits 3 times per attack.

Hope that helps some.

Definitely Kaiser Fists (as said above). I was able to defeat a tonne of bosses with it. And don't be fooled by the otherwise slow animation - I think it punches a lot faster when u actually make contact with an enemy.

Just be sure to equip a Yasutsuna as a secondary weapon or something. It can act as a makeshift shield given its range (especially against bosses like death in order to deal with those pesky sickle projectiles).

Muramasa is definitely the weapon to use before the Valmanway. It's got a big hit radius and its special is great if you have a lot of MP.

Theres a weapon thats like the Valmanway in stats and damage and fast , but its not as fast Called Vorpal Blade but its onlly for Alucard.

so ... the Valmanway is like a 3 burst weapon but the Vorpal Blade only attacks once per press on the button.

He'll stick to using the Yasutsuna with Alucard for now until he can get a Valmanway. Thanks for the replies.

Fist of Tulkas, drops off of dracula and shoots out a fireball with a hadouken motion. :D

Tulkas is Alucard only. I've been using Whip knuckle. Also the best shield IMO is persephone. At level 9 you get a maid to walk out in front of you and take all the hits. As long as you dont need medusa heads i suggest it.
