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.

              Don't try to make this work on a Strength build. It is, however, a very effective Dex weapon with the Sharp gem and responds really well to scaling elemental infusions, such as Chaos, Dark, Lightning and Crystal.

                Can anyone tell me what's the best infusion for a STR build on this sword ? I really like its look but I tried the fire infusion and the damage imput is ridiculously low compared to my other weaps. Thank you

                  If someone is wearing anything to parry, whatever you do don't use the WA. It's hilariously easy to parry.. You have a 90% to get parried upon using it. If you use it, use it very close range to trade.

                      One of the prime PvP weapons in the game in my opinion, the poise reduction the fully charged R2 attack does is ridiculous and it's light enough to accommodate a decent amount of armor with it.

                        i infused mine to dark at +6 and it gives me an A scaling in both Faith and Intelligence, while the wiki lists it as having a B scaling in both at that point

                          Very cool sword albeit kinda slow. The BKS has very similar damage but a much faster move-set and around the same poise damage, also much lower stamina consumption. As good as the Astora is, the BKS is just better imo.

                            This is probably my favourite sword, full stop. Combines the power and poise damage/hyper armour of an UGS with the ease of handling of a spear or a straight sword. It has a place in any build, because of that versatile scaling, and the reach is incredible. The uncharged heavy attack is an amazing poke and can be used as a fake-out. People think you're just starting to roll but, actually, you're preparing a poke 'o' death to insert into their soft bits.

                            The incredibly low weight, only eight units, means it fits well into the kinds of builds I personally favour. Light, sub thirty and mostly focused on damage output. Most of my characters tend to have one, along with a rapier or the Astora straight sword, or a dagger.

                            Plus, it looks cool. Gotta rep that Fashion Souls. Nice, clean lines and some engraved areas near the cross guard. Reserved, without ostentation. Slender, but it still screams punishment.

                              Was kicking someone's butt until they charged. I laughed until I realized they were still running and closing the gap between us while I was across the arena by pontiff.

                              The distance covered made my jaw drop and I got steamrolled.

                                The WA can be used for chasing opponents (pretty obvious and is even stated), but if you free-aim, it can be used to hit those pesky people that just run around you.

                                People assume that their opponent uses lock (reasonable assumption), especially for WAs. The tracking on this WA isn't the greatest, and will "lag" behind the person if they're circle-sprinting. When it misses due to bad tracking, they will then attack.

                                To bypass this, you can unlock and try to predict where they'll run and use the WA in that direction.

                                You shouldn't be too worried about them randomly switching directions because unless they're blocking or two-handing a UGS, turning at such a sharp angle will cause a pivot. Plus switching directions like that doesn't really give them an advantage.
