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.

      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.

            This weapon is pure garbage, don’t you guys feel any shame for spamming the WA and getting parties to death. If so I hope you are prepared to taste my pkcs and some dung pies : )

              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

                      I don’t know how else to put it other than you guys who wield this and spam the weapon art are talentless morons. I mean how many casuls do I have to parry before the whole flock realizes it’s the worst move. Guess it’s on to destroying another casul who wields this with my pkcs

                        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.

                          Seriously how bad can you guys be using a garbage weapon like this not to mention you trash cans that spam the weapon art every 3 seconds and get parried to death like the casuls you are just ditch this and use pkcs and you will win

                            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
