Reinforced Club is a Weapon in Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered.
A club with leather nailed to the pommel. The burg Undead merchant proudly peddles this club, but its reinforcement is shoddy. Indeed, its attack is stronger, but the club is no longer dependably sturdy."
How to Get / Where to Find the Reinforced Club
- Sold by the Undead merchant (male).
- Give to Frampt to receive 50 souls.
- One of the hardest hitting very low requirement weapons there is, but it's annoyingly slow to recover from a miss. Very good at crushing shield wielders and it's R2 attack is a leaping smash which is good for closing distances, but do not use when standing close to a non-giant enemy as you will most likely jump past them.
- One of the best early weapons because of its small requirements and strong attacks. Bleeding is very useful too, so you can easily beat stronger enemies.
- Bleed build up is 30 per strike, and once inflicted will tear 30% of the opponents HP.

BEST SL1 WEAPONS:
Lightning Reinforced Club+5
This is the weapon I used to defeat Kalameet, including the tail cut, at SL8. I will admit that the moveset is not the best, and the range is pretty small, but the damage is insane; especially while buffed.
The prick stick
Which one is better?
Regular club or this one?
Finished the game (all bosses + DLC) only using this beauty. No armor, rings and shields - just this wonderful piece of wooden bonk.
Hmmm Crystal +4 = 252, +5 = 161... Something tells me that something went wrong here.
Ah yes, the Stray Demon repellant stick.
Is it good for a cleric? My next build will be cleric, I wonder if it's a good choice.
say goodbye to your kneecaps, chucklehead
Don't underestimate this little prickly bonk. A reliable very effective weapon for strength-oriented builds and can be obtained right at the start of the game. This weapon has served me well, especially against armored opponents. I prefer the normal path as an upgrade so I can buff it with fire / lightning / magic / poison. By the way, in my experience, the 2H R2 jump attack can hardly be parried by any opponent. Praise the Bonk!
i just finish ds & ds3 with this weapon. In ds 1, it's slower than in ds3 but still great for strength build. This is really great weap, simple and ez to get, but need to care about range
The best weapon is a club you can buy in the first area. What a great video game
Removes the tedium from fighting the Stray Demon early on with that bleed bonus. Not nearly as efficient as the bandit knife for this purpose but a serviceable backup if you don’t have 12 dex. Also any class can use it two handed.
If intelligence and dexterity are not your thing, the club still remains as the ultimate killer argument.
Easily my favorite early weapon, and my usual go-to for Divine reinforcement because it breaks those skeletons so hard (a 2-handed R2 will break down even a giant one and give you ample time for a follow-up). I don't recommend it for more dedicated Strength builds, but it can easily carry your butt through most of the early game.
Best Weapon For SL1 Run!!!
I love this thing. Guaranteed jump attacks, bleed, infusable, breaks shields, great damage to weight ratio, and not too slow granted you don't miss. If you know what you're doing this thing is the ol' reliable for those either low strength or middling on most stats.
Good for killing Havel and Taurus Demon, but nothing else.
Moveset is pretty boring and not very versatile, but good damage, low reqs, and bleed make it a must-have for SL1 runs. Also just generally a powerful weapon to start off with for strength builds.
how the hell is this better than the morning star its barbed wire on a stick
One of the best weapon if you want to do a low SL run : bleeding bild up, high damage when infused, blunt damage.
Nah, don’t like it, half the time i feel like my hits aren’t connecting when they should b in pvp, its as if range is almost non existent with this weapon bit of a shame tbh! :/
Way better than that sh*tty piece of metal attached 2 a pole called the mace, imo!
best weapon soul level 1
