Lothric Knight Greatsword is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Ultra greatsword of the venerable knights of Lothric. Imbued with the strength of lightning, the trademark of dragon hunting.

Very few have demonstrated the extreme strength and dexterity required for this weapon, even in the long history of the Lothric Knights.

Skill: Stomp

Use one's weight to lunge forward with a low stance and increased poise, and follows with strong attack for an upward slash.



Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Buffed and Infused despite its natural Lightning damage
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • A great weapon for a faith build when Ligtning infused.
  • Refined infused on a quality/faith build with Lightning Blade, this weapon becomes quite fearsome.



Location/Where to Find

  • Dropped from Lothric Knights carrying this weapon
  • One can be found walking down the strairs directly south of the Twin Princes boss fight/bonfire. Due to the knight's proximity to a bonfire, this is a very easy place to farm for the greatsword
  • Can be purchased from Greirat of the Undead Settlement or Shrine Handmaid if you give her Greirat's Ashes. Note: Greirat's Ashes will NOT allow purchase from the Shrine Handmaiden if Greirat is killed before he leaves to scavenge the second time.

      Not the 'best weapon in the game,' but definitely the highest AR one. Can be obtained so early with a little grinding that a focused build will destroy any calibre of NG with this sword and appropriate buffs. Just don't count on reaching that potential at 120.

      • 23 Nov 2016 14:19  

        I have 60 strength 60 Dex and 60 Faith. This weapon infused with Refined will have an AR of 794. With Sacred Oath, Deep Protection, and Light Blade infusion has an AR of 1200. This weapon is god like. Will need 40 endurance to use and need armor with basic poise to trade hits. If someone tries to party a two hand they will sh!t their pants when it connects.

        • 06 Nov 2016 02:20  

          The best ultra greatsword for pve imo. Not many enemies have high resistance against lightning. Heck, even some of them are weak against it.
          Good stats, long reach, less heavy than some other ultra greatswords.

          • Better build?11 Oct 2016 01:34  

            Should you be absolutely insane, and get 40 dex, 40 str, and 30 fth in order to do extreme damage?<br/>Or, be a little more reasonable, and do, idk, 24 str, 20 dex, then 40 fth and you can either infuse it with lightning, or use lightning blade (I'd figure out which infusion is best for that, refined, heavy, or sharp), but personally I'm inclined not to be a glass cannon, plus I can put a few extra stats into other things, maybe vit so I can wear better armor, maybe get a little poise ;)

            • Ridiculous07 Oct 2016 02:08  

              Ok so a ridiculous build?<br/>Sure<br/>40 End, 40 Str, 40 Dex, 60 FTH. 30 Att.<br/><br/>Sacred Oath, Deep Protection, Carthus Beacon, Lightning Blade.<br/><br/>Refined Lothric Greatsword +10, Grass Crest Shield(optional), Armor of Choice.<br/><br/>Lightning Clutch Ring, Ring of Favor +x, Chloranthy Ring +x, havel's ring (if needed)<br/><br/>Result: approximately 1200 AR

              • 60 Faith Builds might want to main this weapon.21 Sep 2016 15:59  

                It is the best weapon in terms of AR. I got to 850 AR with my optimized Lighting/Sunlight Blade build.<br/>Gets hard countered by the quick-stepping Dagger & Bandit Knife through. It's too slow to keep up & you will never hyper armor in time.<br/><br/>But even still this weapon is the queen of the damage trades.

                • Been there done that18 Sep 2016 18:59  

                  Personally, this weapon is best at PvE in the right hand (pun hardly intended) and when I say in the right hand I mean there are times when the disadvantages of a UGS come into play (e.g. slow speed, low defense cause of its weight and requirements), then it's about how you time, space, and read the situation.<br/><br/>In PvP tho...it has its own nemesis, and quite some of it. Can't just hyper armor for days.<br/><br/>Just saying,<br/><br/>Quel

                  • Build?11 Sep 2016 23:48  

                    I know a really broken build for this weapon but ***** If I said it people would be using it so i ain't going to tell. But you actually get A faith if you use the lighting miracles it would buff it plus infuse it almost come close to an S though. although the Dmg output is split between lighting you can 3 shot people though not considered tank

                    • NOT "The best weapon in the game"04 Sep 2016 20:13  

                      It certainly has the highest AR of the ultra greatswords, but that doesn't mean it's definitively "the best." I compared numbers on the Lothric, Astora, and Profaned, all fully upgraded with 27 strength and 40 dex, no faith investment (lightning blade buff will add more damage, but requires 30 faith).<br/><br/>Refined Lothric Greatsword:<br/><br/>624 one handed<br/>663 two handed<br/>689 2H + lightning clutch ring<br/>758 2H + lightning pine resin w/o ring <br/>798 2H + lightning pine resin + ring<br/><br/>Refined Astora Greatsword:<br/><br/>498 one handed <br/>546 two handed<br/>641 2H + lightning pine resin <br/><br/>Profaned Greatsword:<br/><br/>544 one handed<br/>605 two handed<br/>685 2H + weapon art buff<br/><br/>When you factor in split damage, the Lothric Greatsword doesn't deal significantly more damage until you buff it. Only a con for PvE.<br/><br/>Biggest con IMO is the ridiculous weight: 16.5. That's over twice what the Astora weighs. Characters with low vitality will struggle to use it if they need also need a backup weapon, shield, etc.<br/><br/>I've noticed it uses more stamina than the Astora. Only slightly, but it's noticeable. <br/><br/>The Lothric Knight Greatsword is a great choice, does ***** loads of damage, and I use it myself regularly, but calling it the best is just plain wrong. It has its pros and cons just like every other weapon.

                      • The best weapon in the game04 Sep 2016 12:46  

                        Yes, this is the best weapon in the game. Is it the easiest? Not by any means, considering longswords are much quicker, lighter, and have a much more agreeable learning curve. Being an ultra greatsword, its physical damage capabilities are already fairly high. Pair that with the Zweihander moveset and you have an overall strong weapon. Now, factor in the innate lightning damage and the ability to physically infuse and then buff the weapon (Refined infusion with Blessed Weapon works best, since you can stack a Blessed weapon with Sacred Oath and Deep Protection for some serious buffing action). Once again, this is NOT the easiest weapon in the game, but ***** son, it sure is the best. <br/><br/>On that note, you can accomplish the same thing with whatever axe Creighton runs around with with very similar results.

                        • Opinions about Lothric Knight Greatsword and elemental weapons09 Aug 2016 00:33  

                          Reply if you have any interesting thoughts on this topic.<br/><br/>As one of the only elemental weapons in the game that can be buffed by a spell or resin, NOT a weapon art buff, it potentially has the strength to match the hardest hitting “meta” weapons so far. With Lightning Blade, this weapon does quite a lot of damage to many enemies in the game and does well in the PvE environment.<br/>Now begs the question, “Does this weapon hit hard with Lightning Blade in PvP as well as it does in PvE?” Also, if you buff the other elemental weapons that can be buffed, the Dragonslayer’s Axe and the Drakeblood Greatsword, they also hit respectively, if not impressively, hard for split damage. Which brings me to the final point.<br/>If more elemental weapons could be buffed, let’s say five more for a nice number of eight, would they be overpowered in PvP? Would people even use them considering the “meta level” is 120 and would have to use points more wisely? Would it expand the variety of weapons, and possibly play-styles, in the PvP environment?<br/>From a person who cannot go online on PS4, I would really love to hear some respectable replies if you are interested.<br/>

                          • Great for Clerics03 Aug 2016 06:32  

                            I run this with 27 strength, 16 Dex. Refined with lightning blade I'm getting between 750 and 800 AR depending on what rings I'm using. Charged R2 hits over 1000 damage, I've one shotted people in PvP with it. Great weapon for a faith build. Also, a lightning shortsword makes a great sidearm for getting quick hits.

                            • Keep this ***** a secret02 Jul 2016 22:09  

                              Monstrous sword, not sure why this isn't used more often in pvp. At 40/40 str/dex after upgrading to +10, adding a refined gem, and using carthus flame arch I am getting well over 800 AR. Closer to 900 than 8 if I'm not mistaken. Throws folks off too as it isn't familiar looking. I had always been recommended the profaned greatsword when asking around for the best ultra, but this blows that out of the water (same move-set, mind you, and lightening damage on every attack).

                              • Is this a good build?01 Jul 2016 20:06  

                                Im thinking of using this with lightning clutch ring, 45 faith, and lightning blade. I am not using sacred oath, because that would take up to many slots for me. (I will also not use the rings that add an extra slot). I also would like to ask, if I infuse this with heavy will it still be able to be buffed?
