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 previously 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.
  • With a Sharp infusion at +10, the Astora Greatsword's scaling is so great that after hitting the Dexterity softcap of 40, each additional dex level adds around two AR to the weapon.

      The WA can be used for chasing opponents (pretty obvious and is even stated), but if you free-aim, it can be used to hit those pesky people that just run around you.

      People assume that their opponent uses lock (reasonable assumption), especially for WAs. The tracking on this WA isn't the greatest, and will "lag" behind the person if they're circle-sprinting. When it misses due to bad tracking, they will then attack.

      To bypass this, you can unlock and try to predict where they'll run and use the WA in that direction.

      You shouldn't be too worried about them randomly switching directions because unless they're blocking or two-handing a UGS, turning at such a sharp angle will cause a pivot. Plus switching directions like that doesn't really give them an advantage.

        I run a quality pyromancer, and this weapon chaos infused works amazing with my 40/40 faith and int. Plus decent scaling with a 30/30 str and dex.

          the strong attack of this weapon has incredible range and the following attack is quit fast (which can also be charge). So far in game I found this very useful . With the weapon art this is the favorite PVP weapon

            I've found a fun way to use this weapon, and other weapons that have a thrusting roll attack. Instead of dashing, jumping, and rolling, take your left thumb off L3 when you jump and you'll land square on your feet, yet pressing R1 still produces a high-speed roll attack. This frequently catches people off guard, and can immediately be followed by two more hitlocking R1's, easily carving out over half the opponent's HP.

              Really wish it had a more controlled and unique moveset but I'm really not complaining this weapon is beautiful efficient viable for almost any build and powerful no complaints from me

                I dont care what anybody says, hollow infusion is far inferior to having a poison and a blood infused one of these babies on you. almost guarenteed to poison in 2 hits, and to bleed in 2-4 hits, which far exceeds its hollowed damage and makes people panic, thus making them a bad player instantaneously.

                  What would be better for a (40/60) Dex/(40/60) Faith build? Sharp and buff with lightning blade, or straight lightning infusion?

                    Does this still have S dex scaling in Sharp? I'm playing the game now and was about to use a slab to take it to level 10, however it says it will remain at A scaling.

                      Although this weapon might scale really well when chaos infused, asking a pyromancer to invest 9 levels into dex is like asking Trump to invest into public healthcare for Mexican immigrants. Especially since almost all pyro weapons scale well with strength.

                        Great example of how every weapon should be balanced.

                        At Max level it's best hollow, has great scaling for Lightning, Crystal, Dark, Chaos.
                        Is best Sharp but can also be used heavy, raw or refined.
                        Isn't terrible on a Blessed or Simple build.

                        Can bleed/Poison in 2-3 swings when infused in either with 50 luck.

                        The only thing that'd really be bad about it is that it can't really make much use of Blessed or Simple infusions. Although not terrible it's mostly due to how they are balanced.

                        If Simple/Blessed added Lightning/Magic while adding Faith/Int scaling that both scaled the damage of elemental and physical it'd be perfect and make up for the loss of overall damage in comparison to Crystal or Lightning by having their FP/HP regen, passive stats and ability to give you a reason to not only level up one stat.

                        Having Int scale physical and magic damage means if you have 20 points left over, you'd have a reason to spend them on the already increased physical scaling once you reach the int softcap.

                          To all those sorcerers out there who want an ultra greatsword. Use this with a crystal infusion. The damage is great, especially for the weight.
