Friede's Great Scythe is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3. (Ashes of Ariandel DLC)
A great scythe wielded by Sister Elfriede, with a curved blade thinly coated by Painted World frost that easily breaks the guard of shields.
In the painting, the scythe is a symbol of a long-lost home, possibly explaining Elfriede's preference for it.
Skill: Elfriede's Stance
Conjure a magic bladed support scythe into the left hand while the great scythe remains in the right, a stance derived from Elfriede's former swordmanship. Use normal attack to leap forward and swing twice, or strong attack to coat the earth with running frost.
Notes and Tips:
- Cannot be Infused or Buffed.
- Upgrades with Titanite Scales.
- Has 643 split AR at 40/40 DEX/INT (real AR is much lower due to the split damage). The main scythe the player uses only deals physical damage. The magic damage only comes from the Weapon Art's light attack.
- The other scythe is put on the back of character when the skill isn't used.
- On stairs in close quarters, the scythe swings low and sometimes misses the enemy.
- This is currently the only Scythe that has the Frostbite effect permanently.
- Upon activating (and holding down) the ability, the player pull's the second scythe out and generates the blade made out of magic. This stance seems to have a very feminine form, most noticeable when standing still. This is possibly due to the weapon's previous owner.
