Fae, you're freaking me out. It's like you and I are the same person or something. >___>
The only thing to add about the greatsword that Fae didn't mention is that the 4th skill (the phantasm) actually does quite a lot of damage. It's the first thing I pop when I get in range.
Also the sound of the laser drives me off the wall. Seriously, who thought of putting that sound in?
