As a disclaimer: I consider the Deacons of the Deep to be the easiest fight in Dark Souls III, and in contention for easiest fight in the whole Soulsborne series. I do not think it requires any specific weapon.

That said, for my next playthough, I'm wondering what crowd-control weapon will be the most entertaining.

Two early candidates: Vordt's Great Hammer and the Quakestone Hammer.

I imagine that spamming the WA on a Heavy Cathedral Knight Greatsword would also be hilarious.

What do you guys think? Any suggestions?

Ringed Knight Paired Greatsword L1 combo spam.
Millwood Greatbow exploding arrow weapon art (i did this on a high FP character, so plenty of blue to spend)
Dragonslayer Greataxe WA (demon greataxe would probably be about the same)
Ringed Knight Straight Sword WA

Splitleaf and hold down L2. Pretty sure that has poise on it too but don’t quote me on that. I don’t use the splitleaf. You could also use the Dancer swords wa or the spin to win with the winged knight halberd

Another vote for Earth Seeker.

Lightly tap the ground to send them all into orbit with your L2.

Did a playthrough and did that, can confirm that it was hilarious.

Hahahahahahaha!!!!!!

Wow, that was the most wild thing I've seen in Dark Souls 3. I came into the fight with the Earth Seeker and Storyteller's Staff, as well as the Shield of Want for easy access to weapon arts.

But here's the thing. I had forgotten that so many of your NPC allies are also in pursuit of Aldrich. I saw the summon signs for Anri, Horace, and Sirrus, and though... you know, this is generally the easiest fight in the game, let's spice it up!

So on NG+ I went in with a full complement of phantoms, massively boosting the Deacons' HP pool. I was still doing tons of damage with the Earth Seeker WA, and when phase 2 arrived and the four fatties spawned in, I hit them with the Storyteller Staff's special poison cloud. All four purple guys as well as the actual Deacon were immediately poisoned. Then went back to earthquake mayhem.

All of my allies easily survived. Man, that was absurd.

I had a similar experience with my archer using the Millwood Greatbow while co-opping with a couple of friends.

I kept essentially dropping bombs into the middle of groups of them and laughed gleefully as they scattered to the four winds from the explosions. At one point, we ended up having to wait for like 10-15 seconds for more deacons to respawn so that the red...soul...or whatever had something to transfer into to continue the fight. We honestly thought we broke the game at first.
