Claymore is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



An unusually large and heavy greatsword normally wielded with two hands.

This highly versatile weapon can be swung broadly or thrusted.

Skill: Stance
While in stance, use normal attacks to break a foe's guard from below, and strong attack to slash upwards with a forward lunge.



Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • All weapons have motion values assigned to each attack, which are modifiers to AR that are associated with the attack being used.
    • All Greatswords have a motion value of 195 on backstab, 245 on riposte, and 60 + 220 on Hornet Ring riposte. The motion value of a Greatsword does not change with Hornet Ring.

 

  • The Claymore has a range of 20sp on the 2h R1.
    • sp, or Shield Pokes, are a unit of measurable distance to determine the range of a weapon. Certain actions create different distances from a wall, allowing one to test the range of certain attacks. While this testing isn't 100% accurate, it is a very good indicator of the ranges of each attack.
  • The Claymore has Thrusting R2s when 2h.

 

  • Greatswords are a weapon class that utilizes Hyper Armor on the 2h R1, R2, Rolling R1, Rolling R2, Running R1, and Jumping Attack. Hyper Armor prevents you from being staggered during its active frames.
    • Note that this information is all measured in frames per second (FPS).
    • Less FPS means a faster action. If you play on console at 30 FPS, the displayed values will be halved.
    • It is also important to note that while this is not the frame data for attack speed and recovery, those values are fairly similar to the ones listed.
 Attack Type  Attack Startup  Poise Startup  Poise End Recovery
 First R1  32 22 64 2
 First R2 (Thrust) 44 24  77  0
Charged R2 30 8 60 6
 Rolling R1 (Thrust) 36 12 44 24
 Rolling R2  46 32  80 0
 Running R1 36  20 56 18
 Jumping Attack 60  30 70 38
 Weapon Skill R1 34  22  65  2
 Weapon Skill R2  52  0  82 38

 

  • Poise is a modifier to how effective Hyper Armor can be at preventing stagger.
    • Poise health is another component of Hyper Armor. Most standard attacks reset your poise health to 80%, most weapon arts reset it to 100%, and waiting around 30 seconds without getting hit will also reset to 100%. What this means is that there are two different poise breakpoints that you need to keep in mind; there is an "infinite trade" breakpoint and a "trade once with reset" breakpoint, both of which are displayed in the poise calculator. As I mentioned above, most weapon arts reset your poise health to full, but not all.
  • The poise required for Greatswords to avoid being staggered by certain attacks is as follows:

 

7.26: infinite trades vs small weapons 2h R1

13.89: infinite trades vs small weapons 2h WDR1

14.58: single trade vs Halberd 2h R1

31.67: infinite trades vs Halberd 2h R1

37.58: single trade vs GS 2h R1

39.72: infinite trades vs all small weapons WA

42.04: single trade vs GS 2h WDR1 (single trade vs small weapons 2h R1 with 2h running and rolling attacks)

47.65: single trade vs UGS 2h R1

50.07: infinite trades vs GS 2h R1

        Ended up 4 shotting Pontiff with a riposte and 3 charged heavy attack with a Crystal claymore. Had 30 in INT and 22 in Strength. 100% the easiest Pontiff fight I've ever had.

          Raw claymore is a perfect substite weapon when you need some damage before you get your build's main weapon

            ****ing disgusting. Cannot believe people still use this
            Anyone with half a brain should quickly switch to the best damn weapon in this game, The glorious Flamberge!

            What? Did you expect me to promote the shitty PKCS?

                Pretty mediocre late game, as there are better options for Heavy Weapons for most builds (Greatsword is better for Strength, Astora is better for Quality or Dex, Bastard Sword is easier for casters to pick up) but it's a fun early-game weapon. Lets you bully the Lothric Knights by easily breaking their poise. and one-shot almost everything else on the High Wall of Lothric.

                  Glaymore + a small shield and heavy armor. See it so often and it reminds me of just about every Dark Souls Streamer ever

                    This is…a beautiful weapon, there is something so simple, yet so complexly beautiful about it.

                    It is able to be encompassed on ANY build possible, STR? Go ahead, QUALITY? Perfect choice, INT or FAITH? This is your bae hell, even LCK.

                    Weather you buff it with Resins or infuse with precious Gems, this weapon will never let you down. The move set and Weapon Art is excellent for its class and it has just enough poise to keep you alive in Lothric.

                    Alongside The Moonlight Greatsword and the Broadsword, this is a staple in the Dark Souls series.

                          With the claymore, you play more. With the claymore, you slay more.

                          I expect this bad boy to show up in Elden Ring.

                            update: everytime you use the perserverence weapon art, claymore users just run away until the buff wears off :( i guess the only way to fight a claymore is with another claymore
