Astora Greatsword is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



This greatsword, bestowed only upon elite knights, is a relic of the ruined land of Astora.

Designed for a focus on thrust attacks, this sword is hard and sharp, but not unusually heavy.

Skill: Charge
Hold sword at waist and charge at foe. Use strong attack while charging to extend the length of the charge.



Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • The lightest Ultra-Greatsword; at 8.0 its weight is comparable to standard greatswords.
  • One of the best weapons to use elemental infusions with because of it's low requirements and high scaling.
  • With a Sharp infusion at +10, the scaling grants it almost 2 AR per level after the 40 DEX softcap.
  • At very high stats (60 in Str/Dex/Lck) this weapons performs best with Blessed Weapon.

      Fun fact: the Astora greatsword is so light for its size that it is less dense than air, and if the Ashen One let go of it, it would float away

      • Anonymous

        Every time I rethink about playing this game, I start putting together builds and one of the top weapons if not THE top weapon is this thing. I love it but goddamn do I also hate how it makes most other weapons feel pointless to try out.

        • Anonymous

          Using this infused with chaos as an alternate weapon to my dark corvian scythe on my pyromancer. same stat requirements and both have A/A scaling. one of these weapons in slot 1 and witch's locks in slot 2 on my right hand. pyro flame and blessed target shield in my left hand.

          • Anonymous

            Love this thing. My favorite weapon hands down. It was my first playthrough and I decided to be a pyromancer. I realized later on that I relied on pyromancies too much, and that I was struggling too much, however I didn't wanna waste away my life and soul getting something like 28 strength for the Greatsword when I only had 15. I also didn't want to use dex weapons. One day the astora greatsword was in my inventory and I didn't realize I had picked it up. I realized it was light to carry, had great damage and happened to match my strength. Too this day this baby carries me in PvE and PvP. 10/10 totally recommend

            • Anonymous

              My favorite weapon no question. Early in the game, great damage, ridiculous on dex builds, and also solid on strength builds as well. It carried me through multiple playthroughs. 10/10 recommend for any dex builds, drang hammers are better for strength though.

                i think its hilarious that when you use the weapon art the game thinks youre using a halberd so your character grabs the blade while doing it

                  60/60 fth/int 40/40 str/dex, fused with dark gem
                  An actual 800 damage, 1600 charged r2
                  Using the fp for heal miracle.... Best way to fight

                    I only want to play with it because my char's name has "of Astora" (because I finished DSR and I love all the NPCs from Astora).

                    But it actually is an OP weapon, hell yeah!

                    • Anonymous

                      Probably the unironically best UGS in the game, which is ironic, considering that its a dex weapon. Its SOMEHOW lighter than the Claymore (Miyazaki, please explain), it has the good thrust R2's and its WA is a very good wakeup. Just make sure that when you go for the WA as a wakeup, that whoever you are fighting doesn't just parry the life out of you, if you sense a parry, just use the fully charged R2 thrust as a wakeup instead. Other than these strongpoints, the weapon still suffers from the same problem as all slower weapons, you will either get outspaced or backstabbed to death. Use this weapon intelligently and don't just try to blindly attack people and you will be having a great time.

                        Okay but why does everyone I meet in the arenas that use this insist on using the running attack all the time?

                        I don't roll hornet ring, but I'd expect after one parry they'd stop, but no. 80% of them keep doing it.

                          Extremely powerful for a 40 int / 40 fth pyro build when infused with chaos or dark, if you're willing to invest in the str and dex requirements. With one of the corresponding clutch rings it'll pull over total 700 attack before buffing yourself with anything. Plus at only 8 weight it's easy to equip with no investment in vitality and no rings for more equip load, lighter even than the claymore. A major contender for a pyromancer who wants to mix it up in melee.

                            i can't believe just how GOOD this weapon is, i plan out a build where i'm thinking lets say a rapier or a irythll sword. i get this and i just say sCREW It im using this again.

                              Im a bit disappointed by the toxic comments here criticizing or defending this weapon. I made great experiences in the community of souls games but in pvp the community doesnt seem to be diffrent compared to cod sweaters or fortnite kids. It doesnt matter how good you are in a game if you cant behave.
                              My opinion.
                              Amazing chest ahead.
                              Try thrusting.

                                I love this weapon. 80/50 dex/fth with a sharp infusion and darkmoon blade and this deals like 700 damage per hit to other players. Plus it has absurd range for its speed and hyper armor, like other UGSs. And the skill is overpowered

                                • This thing is so op lol. Scales very well with pretty much everything,low stat req,good WA so long as you don’t spam it like a retard and is light as a feather.

                                    Put a sharp upgrade on it and it ups the dex scaling while allowing you to buff with items still. I used this up to ng+ 9 I think and only switched things up for variety...but if I'm done playing games with a boss or w/e, this is the bad boy that comes out. Sometimes I can do over 1000 damage with a single heavy attack. The range on the jump attack is great too. Overall boss destroyer. PvP not so much...

                                      Buffs or infusions are almost mandatory on this ugs bcoz of its low AR compared to other ugs. But if u do,its a top tier weapon for quality builds or maybe even the best

                                        Gosh, the guy who won't shut up about the Pontiff Knight Curved Sword is all over this comment thread. I know that he/she's a troll, but I'm honestly wondering if they're actually a bit salty about this weapon, because usually they just leave one comment and move on.

                                          if you want to do a almost one shot combo with this, here's what you have to do. first, you need to learn about weapon moveset swaps. what that is is basically if you are fast enough, you can make any weapon swing as fast as a dagger. I reccomend looking it up on youtube if you want to learn more about weapon moveset swap. the combo uses dagger moveset on astora gs, and dagger speed astora can combo into weapon art for a 1000 damage combo. its best to use this combo when the opponent is close to wall, because if the the angle is not right, the weapon art won't hit them. the combo is very inconsistant and hard to land, but when you land it, its so rewarding.

                                            My favorite ultra weapon. On my dark build, with just basic requirement stats (16/18) and 30/30 intel/faith, while two handing it gives you an AR of 642 on dark and chaos infusions. Add the dark clutch ring, and it's AR of 708. Good, very good.

                                              I wish this could be infinitely bought from the handmaid like how the lkgs can be bought. i only say this because the astora has much lower stat req than lkgs, so it would be nice to have as a hard swap weapon, especially if you don't use mods

                                                A very nice Greatsword for Dex focused builds, but for mixed builds it falls short to stuff like a Sharp Infused Greatsword or a Lothric Greatsword

                                                    The best all-around weapon of the game, hands down. Very good in PvE, very good in PvP. Basically it's a claymore on steroids with better moveset and with the added bonus of being an ultra-greatsword.

                                                        AGS's 16/18 and 8.0 weight versus zwei's 19/11 and 10.0 weight only slightly favors zwei, assuming you're wearing favor +3 and midrolling, meaning each level of vitality adds 1*1.08*0.7 equip units. The 8.0 weight comes out to ~10.58 levels while 10.0 comes out to ~13.23 instead, so you save about 2 vitality level's worth of weight with the AGS but pay about more total with your stat requirements, or more if you still want the equipload for swapping to 9.0 claymore. However...

                                                        -16/18 is far more useful than 19/11 for backup weapons (gotthards, LKSS take 18 dex; knight will force you to start with 12 anyways)
                                                        -AGS has a standing R1's worth of poise on the rolling attacks (so you can save a lot on armor weight)

                                                        The last point is important because serious business UGS people build around rolling attack poise. If you ever get frame advantage (i.e. your opponent is stunned and you are not), you can roll towards them, and they won't know if you're going to use a rolling or standing attack. If they guess wrong, they're going to dodge wrong and get hit. But if they can just interrupt your rolling attack, this becomes a lot less viable.

                                                        Zwei does consume about 2 less stamina per attack though. That might save you like, two levels of endurance. You want at least 140 for astora, which is 26 endurance with favor. That will let you R1 twice, roll, then R1 again with a point to finish the combo with. With zwei I guess you could save two levels but you kinda want 26 anyways just because the rounding bumps that level up (it adds 4 stam instead of 2).

                                                          If I'm running a minimum level build just to use this sword (16str/18dex), should I infuse it Raw or Dark or some other element?

                                                            If you are running a luck build consider having a poison/bleed infused version of this weapon. I've been using this on my sl60 invader and it does surprisingly well with decent damage and can apply status effects in 2-4 hits

                                                            • Anonymous

                                                              Pros:

                                                              1. lowest weight of all UGS

                                                              2. very good moveset with horizontal swings and thrust r2s

                                                              3. very good elemental damage, dark, chaos, even lighning/crystal infusion, 437 fire or dark damage before any buffs for a total 635 split AR, thus being a good choice for battle mages

                                                              4. classy looks.

                                                              5. unique WA for UGS class, although parriable can do a lot of damage

                                                              6. The only dex UGS, dex S scalling being better than both heavy and refined, thus bringing UGS class to dex builds

                                                              Cons:

                                                              1. WA is also a con being way worse than stomp to reset poise health and being easy punishable

                                                              2. despite having S scaling in dex, its physical damage is moderate having 620 pure standard AR with 75 dex, sharp infusion.

                                                              One of the best weapons in the game. It s very good early to late game with elemental infusions also works decent with sharp infusion. It s good to area pve, bosses and PVP alike, being versatile and having a very good moveset. It s unique dex scalling in UGS class can offer a good choice for dex users and its shape and moveset is closest we have to Greatsword in DS1 for a Black Iron Tarkus Cosplay. :)

                                                              Imo the second best UGS in the game, behind Greatsword UGS, with slightly better range, weight and moveset than Zwei and slightly worse elemental damage and WA than Zwei.
                                                              Enjoy the classy Astora GS!

                                                              • One other drawback to this weapon is that the WA doesn't even break poise on tougher enemies, when a regular R1 can stun-lock them. It's unfortunately one of those cool, but rather useless showboating weapon arts, at least for PVE. The charged R2 is the only reason I would ever consider using it.

                                                                • I like the moveset, but the damage so far has been pretty disappointing. Dark infused +7 at 30/30 F/I it has 462AR. That's quite low considering how slow it is. Dragon slayer axe +8 with lightning blade is 524AR and is twice as fast. Was looking for a good, non-lightning backup weapon for clearing areas on my pyromancer, but this is sadly not it. From a DPS perspective, Astora's is about half the DPS of many other weapons thanks to it's lumbering attack speed.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    I do not get this weapon. It's basic attack is less than the Lothric GS with lightning infusion. Same with the back attack, and parry attack. But it's Dex mod is an S where the Lothric GS is an A. Am I doing something wrong here?

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            • Anonymous

It deals the most damage out of all ultras because they need to be 2handed w/ heavy infusion, while this only needs a raw infusion. Even better is because it's 1 handed and 2 handed damage is similar, you can keep a party hand free most of the time. The range is great for beating up gankers, charge works well for catching rolls and chasing people (careful though). You can wear good armor cause it's stupid light and it's rolling attack is godly, really *****ing fast, really *****ing powerful, even though it's been needed its still amazing at shutting down someone who's chasing you, or as a mixup in duels. I mean it's no DSA or longsword, but if you want a quick option for poise without building around it in SL30, Raw AGS +3. Make sure to buff it with bundles whenever you can.

I have three of these now, one +10 Sharp, a +1 Chaos and a standard. When weapons thus good can be infused, I think it is 100 percent qorth having more than ine of them, especially with the infinite respecs, being able to change your build
