Profaned Greatsword is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.
A ceremonial sword, held in Pontiff Sulyvahn's right hand, representing the Profaned Flame.
Long ago, when Sulyvahn was yet a young sorcerer, he discovered the Profaned Capital and an unfading flame below a distant tundra of Irithyll, and a burning ambition took root within him.
Skill: Profaned Flame
Temporarily summon the Profaned Flame. Lunge forward and use strong attack to enshroud blade in flame.
Notes and Tips:
- Cannot be Buffed or Infused.
- Reinforced with Titanite Scale.
- Its charged heavy attacks shroud the blade in flame momentarily. Fully charging adds 50 fire damage to the weapon. (Tested against a 100% physical shield, 4 chip damage went through only with fully charged heavy. In addition things weak to fire take bonus damage from it.)
- The fully-charged attacks of this weapon also use less stamina than that of other Ultra Greatswords. While the regular light attacks use more stamina that those of a Astora Greatsword for example, the charged attacks on the Profaned Greatsword use less than those of the Astora GS. Note that this is true for fully-charged attacks only; minimally charged strong attacks use the same amount of stamina as Astora Greatsword.
- Profaned Greatsword +5 has 605 AR at 40 Strength and 40 Dexterity.
- The fire damage buff from charging a heavy attack and the fire buff from the weapon art stack and damage added will be 130.
Location/Where to Find
- Created with the Soul of Pontiff Sulyvahn.
