Great Corvian Scythe is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Great scythe of the forlorn souls guided by heretical storytellers. The Mistress of the Painted World is said to wield a great scythe herself. Great scythes inflict profuse bleeding, such that the blood splatters on the wielder.

Skill: Neck Swipe
This attack aims for the scruff of a foe's neck, and when successful, functions as a head shot, inflicting heavy damage.

 

Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • While difficult, you can kill yourself by bleeding out when hitting enemies if you are low on health.
  • When swung, only hitting with the blade part of the weapon will deal full damage. Hitting an enemy close range with the handle will result in a damage penalty of 20%. Damage calculations when hitting with the blade part of Reapers appear to vary based on different enemies and when attacks are used. 
  • Hitting with the "sweetspot" will cause reduced damage through shields even with 100% block, and is an effective counter for defensive opponents.
  • As noted above, it is important to know that the scythe will also steadily apply a bleed to yourself with each strike on an enemy. Though it does not appear to do much damage, it will also stack with enemy bleeds which can be very dangerous as the damage from enemy bleeds will of course still do a large amount of damage. Due to this, it would appear that the Great Corvian Scythe is a higher overall damage version of the Great Scythe though with the added danger of the bleed effect it causes upon the player making it more of a niche tool for certain enemy types.

      This weapon with maxed out stamina + ring of favor gets 2 more swings then most straight swords.
      This is one sexy weapon, although heavy is an awful choice for it
      (I mained str builds) as even refined outclasses heavy in terms of damage. Im not sure but i believe the patch gave the weapon art hyperarmor (although it might just be my poise stat making that happen) and the weaponart swings faster than an uncharged r2. This weapon imo is one of the most fun and versatile as i believe it has both blunt and slice damage types to counter many monsters. One more thing. Is it just me or does this do bonus poise damage? I was able to stagger winged knights with this and i generally cant with a weapon.

        At 40 dex Sharp infused it outdamages the pontiff scythe and the regular great scythe by a good margin. It may also outdamage the physical damage friede' s does, But don't quote me on that.

          At release of Dark Souls 3, scythes where the WEAKEST weaponclass in terms of damage & proper weaponart (compared to DS1/2)...
          After Fromsoft patched scythes, theyre actually pretty useful!
          Why?
          >>>You can use your normal moveset to stagger almost every Hyperarmor as long as you hit with the blade (Sweetspot)
          >>>Neckswipe (Weaponart) causes enemy (PvP+PvE) to stagger like they were shot in the head with an arrow wich is an unique feature for melee xD
          >>>Great for bleedbuilds and for counterplaying every weapon with a lower (or equal) range!

          ...and with Ashes of Ariandel (DLC) they added Friede's Great Scythe, wich is THE trickster-weapon for magebuilds, tho it lacks of the neckswipe (but has a at least equally good weaponart, just check it out) and i dunno if the sweetspot mechanic (Hyperarmor-breaker) still kicks in...

          In the end (Vanilla) scythes are tools of precision!!!

            This thing is a Knight Slayer. Brought a Hollow infused +10 Corvian Scythe to Lothric Castle/Grand Archives and slaughtered EVERY KNIGHT BETWEEN BOTH JOINTS BY SIMPLY MASHING R1. Got a shield and a straight sword? You're stagger bait. Got a tower shield and a spear? Let me build up that bleed while you fail to block me. Got a Blessed Weapon buffed great sword? While you're applying that buff, I'll be etching an epitaph in your face. I love this thing. Fast attack speed, great range, no stagger on shield hit + shield navigation, surprisingly low stamina cost when 1-handed, high poise damage, and huge bleed build up. Ignore the sub-par AR, this thing hits as fast as a straight sword with 2x the reach, 2x the stagger, and a big'ol bleed proc. Admittedly the WA is fairly terrible outside of mobs. Not sure how it performs in PvP, given that it can be parried even when 2-handed, but this weapon is definitely one of the unsung heroes of DS3.

            • 06 Dec 2016 17:41  

              If the bleeddamage from this wepon is that lowered, it could be worth to fight bleedbuilds with this. Sure, it would be risky, but if you suceed in trigger your own selfbleed it would be pretty surprising...

              • 23 Nov 2016 01:03  

                Tested today. Damage at 40/40 with refined gem is ok. Bleed to the wielder is really low (unless you're hitting multiple enemies at the same time), and you can just pop a red moss if it raises too much. The only problem with this weapon (or rather, this weapon class) are the sweetspot mechanic and the WA. It has a damage penalty if you're too close the enemy, and neck swipe is just a joke. It deals something like 10 more points than an uncharged strong attack, and it seems to have really poor hitbox (don't trust the long-sweep animation). Anyway, a solid weapon, and with carthus rogue it causes bleed in 2-3 hits, depending the enemy.

                  *rant start* On Ng+ got luck stat on 54 with serpent ring equiped giving me an item discovery of 204, I have run RoS enough times to give me 236,550 souls and still haven't dropped the scythe DX *rant end*

                  • Great if you pay attention28 Aug 2016 04:01  

                    Great weapon. Infuses extremely well with many elements. In pvp it intimidates players who haven't used a gs, in pve it is a great tool for those dangerous 1 on 1 encounters.<br/><br/>That said it can't be used in every situation. Some areas entirely require you put it away. The bleed build up isn't an issue once you play with it a few times.<br/><br/>No ***** if you swoop at a mob with it you're in trouble. <br/><br/>The way I see it if you bleed from using it thats 100% your fault. Don't blame the weapon blame your skills. Or lack there of.

                    • an invader's nightmare13 Aug 2016 06:38  

                      i've got a +9 one of these suckers (no infusions) and thus far i have to say, it's a hilariously potent weapon in PvP when some coward invades my friends worlds; the reason is this, people severely underestimate the range of neck swipe and the 2h R2 in general, given it can be buffed using carthus rouge on it you can usually 1-3 hit bleed most players not using a blood bite/flesh bite/ high resist build.<br/><br/>now in PvE this is a lot like the Chaos Blade, high risk high "lulz" play style. It is by no means ment for everything (in fact in many cases it's extremely ill equipped) but at the same time, there is almost that sadistic pleasure one takes in practically beheading multiple foes from a single R2, players with high bleed resistance (or proper rings) and the right stats to scale with, will find this a pleasant weapon to challenge yourself with when bored with the usual loadout (looking at you darksword users)<br/><br/>tl;dr<br/>great pvp weapon due to the semi unpredictability, challenging but rewarding PvE weapon for vet players looking to liven up the game a bit

                      • Storyteller's Great Scythe11 Aug 2016 00:29  

                        I just went on a farming run to collect the last 2 reapers before starting NG+. When I got the drop from the Corvian Storyteller's for their GS its name was Storyteller's Great Scythe. Is this the same as Corvian's GS or a different one? Has anyone else seen this?

                        • It's not really that bad03 Aug 2016 16:33  

                          Some player say that the reapers are dead, but in my experience with them they don't really suck as much as people say they are.<br/>I got the great corvian scythe in my first play though in the road of sacrifices from a lucky drop, I liked it's looks so I kept it.<br/><br/>After some time when I am having difficulties with my flameberge I switch to this thing with my extra titanites<br/><br/>It worked surprisingly well, I was using a flamberge so I don't have problems with the speed, this thing hits like 2/3 damage of my flamberge in one swing, but it staggers well when hitting with the sweet spot so I can combo it with about the same dps, and the range on this thing really was a lifesaver, a lot of tough enemies I die to when using the flamberge I have managed to kill untouched when using this thing, just because that range gave me a lot more control<br/><br/>Also the bleed prog, I can't seem to prog anything when using the flamberge, but this thing often progs because it combos better<br/><br/>Overall I think it's just a problem of mindset, these reapers just aren't designed to get up close and furious like the straight swords or 1-2 shoting things like the greatswords, they are more like slash based halberds for people who value range and combat control, just think that way when using this thing then you can really see where it shines.

                            Damage is ridiculously low, most straight swords deal more damage and attack like twice as fast. The sweetspot is hard to hit, resulting in a 20% damage reduction.<br/>Even with 40 luck + carthus rouge it's almost impossible to procc blood loss. Also, the weapon builds up bleed as you hit enemies. Hitting multiple enemies really puts you in danger, especially if said enemies cause bleed damage themselves.<br/><br/>That said the worst downside is the abyssmal damage output. The weapon weighs as much as a greatsword yet deals less damage than a straight sword per swing. If you want a hard hitting dex weapon get the carthus curved sword/carthus curved great sword
