Scrap Demonslayer. Either go with the Radiant Soulblade (or something like that) or a stick.

Gah!
You should get the Jade Halberd, one of the most powerfull weapons in the game (also one of the best)
You get it for killing the captin of a Darkside fort that is near an Avernum fort (that is south of Spire fortress). You access it through the cells.

Edit -capitalize all I's when they are like this: I, I'm, etc.

Demonslayer isn't the best sword in the game. It's really only sub-par, even when used against demons.

And type with some semblance of literacy.

A stick just has the highest damage multiplier, so eventually it becomes the best weapon. You just need a really powerful fighter.

The Radiant Soulblade, if I recall correctly, is obtained by beating up on Dorikas.

I actually found the Radiant Soulblade to be pretty overrated too. It's not a broadsword, so its damage output sucks. I stuck with the Oozing Blade instead.

From what I remember of my game, I stayed with the Oozing Blade all through the game after I got it. (Acid Damage FTW)

Come to think of my G4 game, I kept the equivalent acid blade as well.

I did use the Spear of the Fen for my pole fighter alot too.

Demonslayer is only good for its defensive abilities. You are better off with other weapons for attacking or the Cyros spear for its extra AP.

With 0 added combat multipliers (melee, strength, blademaster, items that add +to levels of damage in combat):
Demonslayer deals 12-36.
A stick deals 1-4.
Demonslayer clearly wins.

With 43 added combat multipliers:
Demonslayer deals 55-165.
A stick deals 44-176.
Same average.

With 60 added combat multipliers:
Demonslayer deals 72-216.
A stick deals 61-244.
Stick FTW.

Note that with a dedicated fighter with some decent items can get to 60 damage levels without too much of a problem. Sure, in the beginning of the game you might not want anything to do with sticks, but by the endgame a fighter with a stick is a force to be reckoned with.

Also, blessing. Blessing adds a good-sized chunk of combat bonus.

oozing, i don't need another person with some poison/acid, my archer AND pole slith do acid/poison {hard to tell} why do i need more, besides, in my opinion defence and good att is better than acid and SUCKY stats, my mage has lvl 3 acid spell {rarely uses though see reason why on part with no need for more acid}, and so uses radiant shortblade.

Is the strength affected by mage+magery+spellcraft or just the duration? Either way, do you remember the effects of it in detail, because now I'm curious.

The strength might be affected by spellcasting power at very low levels of blessing -- I haven't tested that, and that's the way it always was in Exile. Regardless, there is definitely an easily achievable limit beyond which spellcasting power only adds to blessing duration.

...Come to think of it, I'm not 100% sure this is how blessing affects damage. I think it is, but I haven't tested and I know others (Randomizer?) have suggested it just adds a percentage factor to damage, the converse of shielding. I find this pretty unlikely, but it's possible.

Blessing does, however, affect to-hit chance just like extra levels of attack strength do.
