Greatswords are a high damage, long reach weapon class. Plan to put a decent amount of points into Strength if you plan to use these weapons. They have various weapon Skills ranging from Stomp to Stance to unique Skills.

In terms of damage output per stamina expended, Greatswords are easily the best value weapon category, and they are a good choice for PvE builds as a result. Things to keep in mind when using these in PvP:

  1. They have less range compared to Polearms, Greataxes, and Ultra Greatswords.
  2. The startup to their attacks is markedly slower compared to Straight Swords, Axes, and other smaller weapons.
