Sorcery developed primarily for sorcerer-swordsmen.
Attacks with a greatsword formed from souls. 

The ephemeral blade only exists as an extension of the caster, but its power is said to rival that of physical greatswords. Even the most obstinate magic purists may resort to this spell in times of crisis.

Notes

  • Has wide horizontal range, making it good for crowd control. However, it is quite simple to dodge and its moderate recovery makes it easy to punish.
  • Appears that AR = (2.12 * Spell Buff) - 89.4

      Cast this after farron flash sword and it changes its appearance and uses a special stance for the casting animation. And it appears to gain some length I have no idea how to test it.

      • OK with Cleric's Candlestick21 Sep 2016 20:01  

        While the Cleric's Candlestick is a piece of crap, you can perform a decent mix up in conjunction with this spell. If you land your two hit light attack combo with the sword, some people will habitually roll. So if you do R1, R1, and then cast this spell, it's possible to hit them at the end of their roll. I think they can just double dodge to avoid it, but it's good for punishing people who want to roll away and then start attacking again.<br/><br/>Then you can mix it up by not casting the spell and simply going for more light attacks, punishing them if they expect you to cast the spell and try to interrupt you.<br/><br/>If that sword wasn't crap, this could actually be a somewhat potent technique.

        • Pretty useful in...25 Apr 2016 08:34  

          ... the Deacons of the Deep boss fight, when dealing with hoards of enemies, Nevertheless I think the FP consumption should be reduced on mages overall to make them a little more viable. Right now the choiceof Ashen Estus over (healing) Estus is not complementing magic-play even in PvE. For instance, I feel the Uchigatana or any melee weapon has more viability in most situations - atleast early game - than seeing an FP bar going down so fast inexchange of such less damage.<br/><br/>Magic is a luxury right now not bread-n-butter for mages.

            We knew you well... Your AoE and PVP viability days are over.<br/>May your children shine, may your find peace in the waking world.<br/>And may from stop nerfing random ***** and ask for community input.

              Well, how badly did they nerf it? Im sure it got a nerf if the already underpowered Farron Flashsword got one as well.<br/><br/>Heaven forbid I play anything but a standard sword and shield knight.

              • who likes the soul greatsword new look?27 Mar 2016 18:51  

                i know many -people say they like it but i disliked it i liked it better when it was just a energy beam<br/><br/>there is also a new spell dark edge which is a curved great sword and i hate the look of it<br/><br/>the dark version of soul great-sword was my favorite also by the fact it released beams now it looks lame as hell<br/><br/>it wouldn't look so bad if it wasn't a curved sword but still why couldn't they keep the beams and the energy looking sword?
