Twin Princes' Greatsword is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Sword forged from the reunion of the inseparable swords born from the souls of Lothric and Lorian, the twin princes.

Their union is rooted in a curse, and perpetuated by grief.

Skill: Sacred Light and Flame
While in stance, use normal attack to cast Sacred Lothric Light, and strong attack to cast Flame of Lorian. 



Notes and Tips:

  • Cannot be Buffed or Infused. 
  • Reinforced with Titanite Scale.
  • At 40 Str 40 Dex 9 Int 9 Faith this weapon has an AR of 540.
  • At 40 Str 14 Dex (minimum) and either 40 Int 9 Faith or 9 Int 40 Faith this weapon has an AR of 521.
  • At 22 Str (minimum) 40 Dex and either 40 Int 9 Faith or 9 Int 40 Faith this weapon has an AR of 537.
  • At 22 Str and 14 Dex with 40 Int and 40 Faith this weapon has an AR of 518.
  • At 40 Str, 40 Dex, 60 Int and 40 Faith this weapon has an AR of 617. This weapon scales poorly with marginal increases in any of the four stats past the 40 softcap.
    • The above stat investments are at +5 refinement using the Knight class. Without heavy investment in all four damage stats this weapon falls short in damage relative to other greatswords; even so, it has a decent AR regardless of how you invest points since it scales well with all stats up to the 40 softcap. In combination with its unique and powerful weapon arts, it remains an effective weapon for any build.

 

 

Location/Where to Find

  • You need Lothric's Holy Sword and Lorian's Greatsword, both can be obtained from Ludleth of Courland via Soul Transposition.
  • Barring item trades with other players you will need to defeat Lothric twice (NG and NG+) in order to obtain this weapon
  • Ludleth will only offer to merge the two swords if both are in the player's main inventory when speaking to him. This can be done even if Ludleth has been slain.

      Just yesterday I was trading this weapon with a friend so he could give it to one of my other characters. Right as I dropped the item, I was kicked out of his world due to a connection error and the item just disappeared. It wasn't in my inventory, wasn't in my friend's inventory, and wasn't on the ground in my friend's world. I'm still a little pissed off about it because I either have to make a new character or go through two more NG cycles to get it again. Literally the worst possible weapon for this to happen. Nice one Miyazaki!

      Anyway, good weapon.

        This weapon is a lot of fun for pvp. Currently using a 30/20/40/40 build, level 140. This weapon is made for hybrid builds, but it doesn't matter too much as the scaling is*****e. I'm using it with a dark pyro and it rocks socks.

        One of my fav combos is the r1 plus weapon art laser beam, lots of hyper armor on both WAs. Also, the laser beam is great for roll catching. Do a running r1 and follow up with a blast. All it lacks is a poke

          Lorian's Greatsword has more AR than Twin princes Greatsword. Is it recommended to use this or keep using the Lorian's Greatsword at higher New Game + levels?

                    If I make this greatsword in NG+, drop it to my friend in NG and he drops it for me on a new character also back in NG would either of us be banned? (I guess this would also answer would you get banned for having items your save should not be able to /yet/ posses).

                      It might seem a bit underwhelming at first since its scaling is somewhat weak, but its solid power and utility with the two moves makes up for it. It's not like...an optimal super weapon you make entire builds for but its a really useful and fun weapon regardless.

                          I was a bit disappointed when I first crafted this weapon, and now it's one of my favourites. For certain it's better than the swords it takes to make it. You don't need any faith or intelligence to make it viable at all, as long as you have 40 strength and dex. Naturally, at those stats, a quality greatsword will hit harder, but the weapon art for this sword provides amazing utility which I gladly sacrifice some damage for.
