My DRK is currently 92, stopped levelling it to skill up Scythe/Greatsword to an appropriate level (357 lol). Question is, which is a better weapon type? I see a lot of DRKs with Scythes, but then i hear that Resolution is a lot better, but then i never see any GS users, why?

Depends on what you're doing, but level both.

Greatsword for max damage.
Scythe for adaptability? Entropy gives you infinite mp and you can't ignore the HP drain and haste of Catastrophe.

Unless you absolutely need the extra damage (not usually) or you have a special weapon (such as an Apocalypse), it doesn't matter which you use, but it's important to have them both available.

Figure out what you get and then use that one.

Unless you have an APOC, Resolution and/or Senbaak Nagan are making the GS the TRUE A+ weapon of DRKS. I think it's funny that GS for DRK is like A- or B+ and it's A+ for RUN, but due to a DRK's shear power, it does more damage than a RUN could ever hope to...even when the RUN subs DRK.

Compared my Senbaak to my Lacryma Scythe and it appears that the Senbaak does more damage even though my Scythe skill is 414 and my GS skill is 376. Maybe it's because the Senbaak has STR modifiers to merit and the Scythe has INT modifiers to merit. Maybe my gear sucks. I dunno. I did get scolded for my choice in gear recently, as I do not have a great deal of Haste+ and Store TP gear. Working on it.
