Astora Greatsword is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



This greatsword, bestowed only upon elite knights, is a relic of the ruined land of Astora.

Designed for a focus on thrust attacks, this sword is hard and sharp, but not unusually heavy.

Skill: Charge
Hold sword at waist and charge at foe. Use strong attack while charging to extend the length of the charge.



Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • The lightest Ultra-Greatsword;  at 8.0 its weight is comparable to standard greatswords.
  • One of the best weapons to Infuse because of the A and S scaling it recieves when upgraded. Pyromancers should make this into a Chaos weapon, while Clerics and Heralds would go for Lightning to scale with Faith, etc. Overall high versitality with infusion and can deal quite a bit of damage.
  • The rolling attack previosuly had a few serious problems at launch. There perviously existed a bug where the 2h rolling attack could not be parried and did Thrust damage, and since the rolling attack already deals considerably more damage than other UGSs normally do, it could be buffed with the Leo Ring. All of these made the weapon very dangerous and some might've even called it OP.
  • At very high stats (60+ in STR/DEX/LCK) this weapons performs best with a Hollow infusion.

      Running pyro build, Im at 26/21/38/40 str/dex/int/faith, with normal pyro rings, ring of favor, and havel's for fashion soulsing and dark infusion I'm getting 629 1h AR, but it does split the damage between phys and dark

      • 20 Dec 2016 02:32  

        I’m in love with this weapon, it is amazing at gank invasions.
        Unparryable roll attack, roll punish weapon art to chase the panickers who need to estus (also good for getting away from people behind you), does thrust damage which with leo ring and good poise is a monster with the R2 or weapon art. lastly, it could be infused and buffed, if you go hollow, bleeding + weapon art does surprisingly well, but running a strength class, i suggest fire reason for breaking poise.

        • 12 Nov 2016 12:43  

          "At very high stats (60+ in STR/DEX/LCK) this weapons performs best with a Hollow infusion."

          Doesn't almost any weapon in the game perform best with a hollow build and these stats?!

          • are they sisters?07 Oct 2016 01:24  

            <br/>astora gr8 & astora str8. cuz i wanna ***** em both at once . *****ing the useless ***** outta big lil sisters. <br/><br/>- pro playa

            • pure greatness19 Sep 2016 18:20  

              add a dark infusion and this bastard will at least 3 hit any player (2 pokes 1 swing) its highly effective against nearly everything in the game

              • Favorite UGS16 Sep 2016 10:00  

                Love this thing. Damage is average, but it's the lightest UGS. I can carry the Astora UGS, black knight glaive and sunlight straight sword with just 15 vit. The rolling R1/RT is just amazing. I personally prefer the charge WA to stomp. Yes, it's easy to parry, but it's amazing for chasing down estus chuggers.

                • No Swagger11 Sep 2016 15:38  

                  This is one of the best Weapons in the game with a unique and cool Weapon art. No Doubt.<br/><br/>But The Weapon has No Swagger. It Looks lame as **** as a UGS. And Since I'm all about the swag...I wouldn't be seen dead using this.

                  • build14 Aug 2016 07:22  

                    it is best to use the refined infusion even if you are something like 50/18 str/dex. You gonna get 497ar with refined and 480 with heavy infusion (while also 2handing it)<br/>40/40 is the best choice as it gives you 579AR when 2handing

                    • Simple solution regarding the Charge WA and its vulnerability to parries29 Jul 2016 21:55  

                      I've seen a lot of people slag this weapon because Charge is parryable, but it shouldn't be your main attack in PvP. I'll admit it's not that much use in duels, but in invasions and when you're being invaded, this thing is godlike for catching chuggers.

                      • Raw + buff or magic-type infusion?26 Jul 2016 09:33  

                        I haven't gotten around to testing this myself yet, but any ideas on which would be better in terms of straight-up damage output: Raw Infusion + a magic buff (e.g. Carthus Flame Arc), or Chaos/Lightning/etc. Infusion?<br/>One thing that caught my eye is that with Raw Infusion, the AGS' per-hit damage is barely more than the Astora Straight Sword's, which obviously has a much greater damage output due to its faster moveset. This tempts me into saying that a Chaos Infusion (for example) is the better way to go because you get that wonderful C/C/A/A scaling, but then I consider you have to work with split damage and you lose the ability to buff the weapon, plus the C/A scalings are presumably on the lower ends of the spectrum (magic-type scales tend to be a bit deceiving). This leaves me conflicted...

                        • Why can't I infuse my sword08 Jul 2016 12:32  

                          im trying to infuse my Astora great sword with a chaos Gem but the game wont let me. I have two chaos gems. Right now its at a +6, have I upgraded too much?

                          • Heavy gem22 Jun 2016 14:43  

                            Is there any point putting a heavy gem on the Astora Greatsword because mine is at a +7 and putting a heavy gem on it seems to make it weaker.
