Morne's Great Hammer is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.  

Greathammer bestowed upon Carim Knights who demonstrate outstanding strength and unwavering faith. Decorated by a ward of Carim Temple, and imbued with the twisted rage of Apostle Morne.

Skill: Morne's Rage
Stick weapon into earth and emit a powerful shockwave. Also, similar to Perseverance, temporarily boosts poise and reduces damage received.

Notes and Tips:

  • Cannot be Infused or Buffed.
  • Upgraded with Twinkling Titanite.
  • Visually similar to Bramd from Demon's Souls, and has the same stat requirements as the Grant from Dark Souls 1.
  • At +5 with 50 STR/40 FTH, this weapon has 631 AR.
  • This Great Hammer, along with Smough's Great Hammer  and Ledo's Great Hammer, have a higher poise health value than the other Great Hammers, with 32.9 poise health instead of the usual 30.8. This means you can have much less poise and still be able to tank through the other Ultras.

Location/Where to Find

  • Dropped by Eygon of Carim if killed.
  • Looted from Eygon of Carim's corpse late-game in the old cell of Irina of Carim.

      I tried to indirectly kill this guy by leading one of those pomegranate bowl guys to attack him. It backfired when he aggroed onto me and i got my ass handed to me with a split second to realise what I had done.

      Moral of the story: I am a manipulative bastard.

        Should of put 50 extra damage on this and all hammers really the stat requirements is a joke for little return. The weapon art is the only good thing

          Since they finally fixed it, here's an explanation for people who don't get the joke: morne's greathammer was listed in the "bosses" category on this wiki for a while now. They only changed it about a month ago.
          Granted, it still has its fair share of problems, what with there being no iudex gundyr or slave knight gael, and yet the stray demon is listed as a boss even though at most it only drops a unique soul. But it's definetely better than before.

              I already made Irina a Firekeeper and I have no idea where to find or fight Eygon. Can I still get this weapon?

                Anyone else remember the good old days when the 1 FP exploit still worked to use a weapon art and with a simple infused offhand you could spam this thing like no tomorrow...good times.....

                  with farron ring equipped you only need 20 fp minimum to cast so with a simple infused off hand you can cast for free every 60 seconds which doesnt sound like much but its pretty good for invades and co op where you have much less estus.

                    Perseverance on this Great Mace uses way more FP then all the other maces, weighs the most, can't infuse or buff. Need to balance your game FROM.

                      Grant? This type of weapon (Paladin Great hammer) goes way back to Demons Souls and Garl Vinland's "Bramd".

                        To everyone saying "This isn't a boss": The people saying this is the hardest boss are correct. Not because it itself is a boss, but because anyone you face in PvP that has it is harder than any boss in the game. Sure, players are usually harder than bosses anyways but Morne's malicious will and unadulterated desire to kill instills within the wielder a power unseen from other players.

                          Op piece of***** garbage.
                          No matter what i take, Greatsword, Curved Swords, Standard Swords.

                          This thing has poise and stagger on level 9999999999 you cant do anything against it to counter it.
                          Cant parry, cant stagger, nothing. But it staggers you for *****ing minutes. Great weapon.

                            I did a bit of testing since I can't find this info ANYWHERE. If you only dual-wield this weapon you can use it with the minimum stats of: 34 STR 30 Faith
                            so absolute lowest lvl you can be before you can use this based on class IS: S=Start lvl, N=lvls needed to get to E, E=End lvl (can use wep)
                            Knight: S9+N45=E54 Mercenary: S8+N46=E54 Warrior: S7+N49=E56 Herald: S9+N43=E48 Thief: S5+N47=E52
                            Assassin: S10+N45=E55 Sorcerer: S6+N50=E56 Pyromancer: S8+N40=E48 Cleric: S7+N36=E43 Deprived: S1+N44=E45
                            So as kinda expected if you want to use this weapon ASAP Cleric is the best choice and Sorcerer is the worst.
                            Hope this helped someone!
