Hollowslayer Greatsword is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Greatsword used for a lifetime by a masked knight. Harbors the fears that lurk within the mind of Hollows, and is particularly effective against them.

Bestowed to a proper Mirrah knight long ago. Two-hand to execute special sword techniques.

Skill: Stance
While in stance, use normal attack to break a foe’s guard from below, and strong attack to slash upwards with a forward lunge.

 

Notes and Tips:

  • Cannot be Infused or Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite Scale.
  • Hollowslayer Greatsword +5 has 516 AR at 40 Strength and 40 Dexterity.
  • Deals 20% bonus damage against Hollows; effective against a wide number of hollowed enemies, and even some bosses, throughout the game.
  • This weapon's bonus damage does not affect hollowed players in PvP.
  • When two-handed executes the same moveset as in Dark Souls 2.
  • The weapon of Lucatiel of Mirrah, a NPC in Dark Souls 2 whose mask and armor set are also available in Dark Souls 3. The Sunset Shield available ingame also matches the appearance of Lucatiel's shield from Dark Souls 2 exactly.
  • Hyper Armour begins earlier each consecutive 2 handed R1, up until the first animation repeats.

      Another weapon I'm sort of surprised doesn't have more comments. I sort of thought the benefit of its two handed R1 animation was well known. A fair number of youtubers and streamers splurge all over it, and maybe rightfully so with how combat tends to go in this game.

      It's a really good, solid sword with one of the best attack styles in the game in that R1. Good length, easy and early to get, and its Lucatiel's sword.

        Fun Fact: The hitbox of this weapon is your entire body. Spam R1 in PvP, they won't be able to get close since it's fast, has huge damage and it's hitbox is Your Entire Body.

            this weapon have a soft cap on 27 STR and 40 DEX is ( 2 hand 516)
            after 27 str only give you 1 AR every point. This is reasons why better than claymore(don't need much STR scale,save more points)AND this is not refined weapon. complete not worth it.

            40/40 means you can use a lot of weapon at same time .not much dmg difference.but probably not the best way .that is it

                  Is this any good for strength builds? I'm running raw astoras sword currently but it just dawned on me that it's faith based.

                    I'm so happy they brought this back as such a great weapon, lucatiel was so... -cries- she deserved a callback in ds3, she was the most memorable npc in ds2 (though alsanna really got my inner zelda fan going). It's nice that they stuck with the versatile moveset as well.
