Katana.  Broad Sword just felt like a slow version of Katana/Ninja Blade that did not do enough damage to makeup for the longer cast times.

This one's not a real contest. They are the same powerset, but one does less damage...

Broadsword for me  :D Who doesn't want a big bad @ss sword when slaughtering mobs?

Which is which again? i remember bs having better damage attacks but katana having better dps. but in the absence of rikti pylons and people who actually go test such things i don't trust my memory.

katana had high accuracy and dps, broadsword had accuracy debuffs and knockback if I am not terribly mistaken. most people tended to take katana for the DPS

They both had defense debuffs. Katana had better dps, broadsword better "burst".

Katana all the way on this one.

I think you can make a case for BS over katana for PvP, though someone with more PvP experience could speak to it better than I can.

I'll take it a different direction from most people:

I liked broadsword's customization options much better.

I think katana was better over all, but I liked the hard hitting, crunchy feel of broadsword.

Broadsword for me. DPS might not be as good but prefer the big thunk vs the slicey sound effects.

Broadsword wins!
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?
