Lorian's Greatsword is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.

Ultra greatsword of Lorian, Prince Lothric's older brother. Cast in smoldering molten steel, and stained black. 

Before Lorian embraced his brother's curse, he was a knight who single handedly slayed the demon prince, but the victory eternally scorched his sword with flame.

Skill: Flame of Lorian

Lunge forward to transform smolder into flame, and follow with strong attack to launch flame across ground.

      I do believe that Lorian's GS got nerfed in terms of weight and stamina usage from Patch 1.11. It was 13.5 and now it's 14.0 and while I could swing other similar UGS like Profaned and Astora up to 5 times with 40 END and a RoF+1, I could only swing Lorian's GS up to 4 times only.

        This is honestly my favorite Ultra Greatsword. Great moveset, incredible range, hyper armor stomp/attack combo, and comes with a self buff. The stat scaling is very lenient so it lends itself to a multitude of good builds, although best results of course is a good emphasis on Str/Dex with some Faith/Int thrown in. I ran with 35/35/15/15 for the longest time and it's still garnered me best results for this sword in particular, but something like 35/30/20/20 or some variation's fine too. Even if you just stuck to physical stats, or kept baseline physical stats to wield it and had some sort of pyro-centric build with a good chunk of int/faith its still a really good weapon imo.

        • Demon Prince's identity?23 Aug 2016 00:56  

          I know this has been discussed a little in regard to Izalith, but with the release of the concept art I actually stopped to wonder if the Demon Prince is in reference to their brother, Ocellote? He would be a prince for certain as he comes from the royal family and the artwork depicts a queen holding a demon baby. It's only a theory, but it would be interesting and add more back story to the princes of the family. The whole family seems to be 'cursed' with something outside of the undead curse, perhaps the origin could even be Ocellote.

          • Self Buff29 Jul 2016 10:15  

            I'm not entirely sure, but it seems that since one only needs to do the initial "stomp" portion of the weapon art to apply the buff, that in terms of FP cost, this weapon has the cheapest buff in the entire game not counting consumables.

            • Simple offhand21 Jul 2016 10:20  

              A simple off hand +9/10 will refill all the fp used for the L2 only before the 45 secs pass. Pressing L2 adds the extra dmg and only costs 10 fp. I have an offhand simple caestus (I mever parry, i suck too bad at is) cause its light af. This will allow you to keep the weapon buffed at all times, provided you do not switch out your simple gear or the sword.

              • Sword Icon04 Jun 2016 08:23  

                To people that say that the sword icon is different from the sword itself and also say that this is something to do with the lore... is probably incorrect. This is probably just a bug and what the sword was meant to look like before the game was released. If it was meant to be like this then why doesn't the Black Knight Sword icon look like the Silver Knight Straight Sword from DKS1?

                • PVP09 May 2016 07:29  

                  if you focus your build on vigor endurance and strength than this will absolutely destroy everyone in your path if you can time your hits with this monstrosity

                  • The sword in the icon07 May 2016 23:04  

                    Am I alone in wanting the icon greatsword? I mean this weapon looks great, but I feell like this is the corrupted or cinder version of the sword while the icon is his natural sword or damaged when he fought the demon prince. I would like to have both

                      My god this sword just wrecks face in PVP. The art alone adds damage. But the art stance with a heavy attack gives you hyper armor to just send those rollers flying. And then just heavy thrust them while they are getting up and it's GG because the thrust on this sword has got some serious range.

                      • Dat Wepon26 Apr 2016 08:23  

                        This is probably by far the coolest-looking sword in the game. On one and, it is molten, but does not look rusted/broken as a good half of the game's equipment, on another it's not absurdly fancy like most fantasy swords.

                          Tried to get the max damage possible in the game:<br/>Lorian's Greatsword+5<br/>Fire clutch ring<br/>Lloyd's sword ring<br/>flynn's ring<br/>Red Tearstone Ring<br/>and Power within pyromancy <br/><br/>The total AR togther with its special buff is 1178. LOL

                          • Quality build OP21 Apr 2016 09:33  

                            Quality build makes this weapon far better than most great swords and even the Firelink Greatsword. From did a good job of putting its requirements just out of reach for a SL1 Deprived PvP build
