        Best melee weapon in Game?
        Your own body as soon as you get the " Ring of the Unclean ".
        " Unarmed Melee attacks deal 2x damage. Heavy Flops deal 2.5x damage. "
        You actually can unequip you weapons and just fist your way to victory (btw also best stagger in game). Go Lethos Armor! <- for the Flops wich are Rolls btw.
        Dont belive me ? trust your own eyes :

          I saw someone who had a 1 handed hammer that looked like the helmet from 'The Unclean One'. Came here trying to find out what it was. Tried breaking off the head part of unclean one to no avail.
