|Holy Water Sprinkler|
"The Holy Water Sprinkler is a short club with spikes sticking out of it, the Holy Water Sprinkler is a modified mace weapon that strikes extremely quickly."
The Holy Water Sprinkler's damage is 50% blunt and 50% piercing, making it an ideal weapon for dealing with the popular Vanguards and Knight classes. The Holy Water Sprinkler is the fastest attacking primary weapon in the entire game (beaten only by the secondaries). As such, the combo swing should be your primary means of attack in 1v1 combat, and overhead swing can be used to catch enemies off guard.
This weapon is less effective on Archers as a result of its damage typing, so be a bit careful when fighting them. If the HWS is being used with a MAA, any swing-damage weapon would make for a good secondary.
As with all weapons, Overhead swings with this weapon have the longest windup and deal the most damage while stabs have the least windup and deal the least damage.  However, the stab is considerably weaker than the swings due to the nature of the weapon, so keep this in mind during combat.
