- Nightmare Church, go down the stairs inside the church, proceed down the rafters and walk to the left. At the end is the corpse holding the Whirligig Saw.
The Whirligig Saw is a curious weapon, its one handed mode has almost exactly the same attack pattern as the Kirkhammer and Ludwig's Holy Blade, albeit that its speed is slower yet has more range. It lacks both these weapons ability of dealing "righteous damage" to the residents of Cainhurst or the Pthumerians.
The transformed mode of this weapon turns it into an extended buzzsaw, complete with a lot of range, damage, and stagger potential. Additionally it has very fluid and natural attacks, and a special attack that is triggered by holding the L2 button, this will leave players holding the saw as it cuts downs opponents with very fast and consecutive damage.
It also has a terrific Arcane scaling, which is great for players focused on elemental builds. Giving it fire damage will turn this weapon an invaluable boon against almost all beasts within the game, provided that players have the necessary stats to do so. Additionally, the weapon has an above average rallying potential.
- Whirligig Saw's charge time is about the same as Stake Driver's but deals a lot less damage yet consumes less stamina.
- It has the best value of Rally in the game when transformed.
- This is Valtr's weapon of choice.
- The Whirligig Saw has plenty of components made of a greenish metal, it is possible that metal is brass seeing as it is the same color as the Old Hunter Gloves, and that in the early days of the retaliation against the beasts, brass was believed to ward the blood of beasts.
