Drakeblood Greatsword is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Greatsword wielded by an order of knights who venerate dragon blood.

This sword, its blade engraved with script symbolizing dragon blood, inflicts magic and lightning damage.

Skill: Stance
While in stance, use normal attack 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.
  • If infused with Dark or Chaos, both Magic and Lightning damage will scale with Intelligence and Faith, respectively.
  • In infused with Blessed, its base damage and Lightning damage will also scale with Faith.
  • If infused with Simple, its magic damage will scale with Intelligence.
  • The lightest Greatsword weapon, and it's the same length as the Bastard Sword.
  • This weapon has the same two-handed attack chain as the Hollowslayer Greatsword.
  • Keep in mind each damage type is separately calculated by an enemy's respective defence and absorption stats, so the listed AR needs to be taken with a pinch of salt. It is recommended to focus on maximising one damage type, either with infusions or buffs, even if the listed total AR attained is lower.
  • Defenses are harsh on low ARs (i.e. 70), but reward medium-to-high amounts of AR.
    70 AR may transform into an additional 10 damage per swing under normal circumstances, but 150 AR may add about 50 damage.
  • The Drakeblood Greatsword has a range of 31.5838xl on the 1h R1 and 35.229xl on the 2h R1.

      let's say you're a faith build, like the hollowslayer moveset, and prefer the stance skill over stomp. this is your weapon
      also you better grab 2 of these: one with the blessed infusion and one with the lightning infusion. they'll have the same AR, so pay attention to your enemy's equipment.

      heavy armor means higher vitality, which scales physical defense. the heavier armor also has lower lightning absorption. go with the lightning version

      lighter armor means higher endurance and less heavy armor: lower lightning defense and higher physical defense. go with the blessed

        Wish it had a rolling poke and heavy poke. Otherwise it’s great but those are big negatives for me. HollowS is #1 for this moveset imo.

        • Anonymous

          This weapon goes from depressingly mediocre to absolutely cracked with any kind of elemental buff. From a PvP perspective, anyways.

          At 40/40, expect this thing @ Refined +10 to hit a well-armored melee build for somewhere in the realm of 230. Put a Pale Pine Resin on it, and that goes up to around 295. Use a Gold Pine Bundle instead, and that number is now 315 or so.

          For comparison, a Refined Claymore +10 at the same stat allotment only deals around 260 damage to the same player, and still only some 289 damage when buffed with the Gold Pine Bundle.

          Additionally, because so much of the Drakeblood Greatsword's damage is elemental, its "ideal" physical infusion hardly matters, so it works very well on Strength, Dex, and Quality, which is not a very common characteristic among even infusable weapons. And it's equally (if not more ridiculous) with Blessed/Crystal/Lightning infusion, or any physical infusion + Darkmoon/Lightning Blade miracle.

          Plus, in spite of its short range, this thing feels easier to use than most other greatswords. It uses the Hollowslayer Greatsword's moveset, so its hyperarmor seems to come in quicker than other greatswords, and it's also very difficult for the enemy to read your next move if you know what you're doing. And it consumes a mere 25 stamina on a 2-handed R1, while every other greatsword except for the Hollowslayer consumes 30-35. These two things combined make this thing a sort of "R1 blender" where you can pretty much just spam your light attack and dumpster even Lapp PKCS sweats if they're not expecting it.

            It is a stylish weapon with a good moveset and ar/weight ratio, but it's a little tricky to build around. Wether you are a mage or not, it's a resource-hungry weapon that will constantly eat up your resins/fp in order to access the best of it's potential ar. When infused with your element of choice, you need the respective clutch ring to benefit better from the moveset's great dps. I'd say flynn's ring should help with it's physical ar, but unless you use blessed weapon on it don't bother.

            In regards of the moveset, it's almost perfect to stunlock anything in your path, but it gives less hyper armor than it appears so at least 15 poise is recommended. Don't get greedy either, if the enemy isn't staggered in the 3rd hit, roll back as you will eventually lose the trade.

            For fashion matters, to each their own. In my opinion greatsword of judgment is a better weapon to show off with.

              Did some testing with the pontiff right eye and it seems it buffs all 3 damage types. With it this greatsword goes from "meh" to "oh sht!"

                  This thing on sl1 runs WRECKS, depending on the boss you can change between magic and lightning resins, giving you variety. it has very good rolling attacks which is essential on openings against bosses. It has INSANE critical damage, since the split damage wont matter. riposting sb with this thing, say bb. Its also very light for a greatsword

                    Sick of seeing elitism in a virtual chat created to discuss a game

                    Every weapon in the game is viable, doesn't matter what it is - stop worrying about what weapon is best, and just try them out yourself without worrying about trolls screaming about split damage - nobody said the Drakeblood is best, but I WILL say why you should try it and make up your own mind

                    But yes, the Drakeblood Greatsword is entirely viable, it's just whether that weapon works for you. It has split damage sure, and you'll notice that against the vitality meta in higher level PvP, you'll also notice more and more situations at higher levels where the claymore might've been more useful, but we all know the claymore is an utter beast, and yes it has bad range like the bastard sword

                    but if you know what you're doing, use it. It works great with Chaos/Pyro and Faith builds with lightning and chaos gems, it also works great as a buffable quality weapon - you'll be waving around 700+ AR minimum, again split damage or no that slaps. It's an interesting, and surprisingly versatile weapon for different builds

                    It shares a similar moveset to the Hollowslayer, making it unique and the HyperArmour frames kick off much earlier than on other GSs. Some aren't a fan of the moveset, but I am - the 2 handed R1's are fantastic for playing unlocked, the swipe tends to create a wide arc behind and in front of the player so it can catch multiple foes off guard, you can protect all sides of your character with these (they can also catch someone in a 4 hit combo if they try roll through your attack instead of away), and it has a 1handed R2 poke so it's not pokeless which a lot of people slam it for compared to the claymore - also, don't sleep on the shield break weapon art for moveset versatility, and the L2/R2 for closing distance - people ALWAYS underestimate a player with this weapon too

                    It's a really fun weapon, it's a nice change from the popular meta, and much MUCH stronger than any self proclaimed Souls expert will tell you on the net - hope this helps, and have fun

                      Buffing with lightning blade boosts damage pretty considerably but it's still worse than Sunlight Straight Sword for faith builds, don't be fooled

                      • Anonymous

                        Refined drakeblood + lightening blade/darkmoon blade would deal pretty decent damage.

                        Still, a lightening Claymore or a Judgment sword could do better without the buffs.

                          Infuse it with Dark for all the scaling! then go shank those Silver Knight bastards and have them drop NOTHING!! for 2 hours.

                            Sharp and Raw infusions have same damage with minimal stats (18 STR and 16 DEX), so infuse with Sharp if in doubt of leveling DEX sooner or later (for cast speed or anything)

                              Works wonders in higher NGs with refined infusion and sunlight/darkmoon blade.

                              Its very quick 2hR1s are perfect for faster bosses my twinaxes whiff at.

                                looking at the table for the elemental infusions it seems lightning infusion is by far the best, but if you want a focused magic weapon, is this the best weapon to infuse with simple? the magic damage is only slightly less then crystal but a jump to A scaling should make the difference and it still deals slightly more physical (a miniscule amount but its something)

                                  if this weapon bad then how come that k************************** keeps melting my health bar with it? also if you have 40 in dex, str, int, and faith shudn't it melt peaple like it did me? also i was 40 vig with +3 fap and full havel.

                                  • I see all the different infusions but don't fully understand what would be best for what me and some buddies are looking for. We want to use the weapon but be able to infuse it and use darkmoon blade or lightning blade on it to get some nice bonus damage from it. What infusion should we put on it to get the most out of it? We plan to eventually spec for 40 Faith first along with whatever Str/Dex is needed for the weapon. Any input on a proper infusion for Dark Blade and Lightning Blade spell uses with 40 Fatih?

                                      One of most wasted weapons in the game, IMHO.
                                      Yes, i know it can be good under certain conditions, but there are things that From could do to make this weapon truly unique and wasted it.

                                      First of all: i'm absolutely pissed that this sleek, graceful weapon doesn't have a 2H R2 thrust. Out of 16 greatswords in this game only 4 can 2H R2 thrust, and this beauty isn't one of them. That's a crime.

                                      Two: the low range really hurts this, just like it hurts Bastard's Sword. It basically has similiar range to something like Lothric's Straight Sword, only without the speed. Which is bad. You can't initiate with this thing, getting staggered just trying to start a combo, or even better - you simply get outspaced. Lovely.

                                      Three: i'm gonna do a little DS2 praising here. DS2 was fairly creative with its' weapons movesets. DS3 drops an absolute ball here. Since this weapon strides a short line between greatsword and a straight sword having both range and size of the latter - they could give it some unique hybrid moveset where certain arbitrary attacks use straight sword animations instead of greatsword ones.

                                      Still one of my ravorite weapons though, because i love the realistic design of the thing and i love the sound it makes when it hits a target.

                                        Unironically extremely underrated. Everyone sees the triple split damage and thinks, "Oh, this thing has garbage damage" but when you buff it with DMB or Lightning Blade on a 40 dex 60 fth build it gets insane damage at a very low weight and stamina cost. Pair this with the great hyperarmour and moveset and it's one of the best greatswords IMO

                                          Is this viable with lightning/crystal infusion? It seems like it would be at least OK. Also, what about dark/chaos? Seems worse since it gimps the base magic/lightning damage but the fire/dark is decent and the magic/lightning will scale to an extent. Split damage is pretty bleh though.

                                            "If infused with Dark or Chaos, both Magic and Lightning damage will scale with Intelligence and Faith, respectively." Can you go full pyro with 40 int & faith?

Apparently this sword is bad despite doing 2 elemental damage types? Like, what if you’re fighting something weak to both magic and lightning? Does is still not fully apply both damage types? Why doesn’t it just add both damage types to every hit? Guess I’m just used the MHW where it did that

                                                  IMHO use this thing with raw for that big bump in physical damage and use a fire or dark resin to gain a 3rd element damage and bam now you got a hard hitting greatsword that deals good physical damage and not 1 not 2 but 3 different elemental damages.

                                                    Weapon is really good for farming the winged knights in grand archives very beautiful moveset lowkey underrated too.

                                                    • Actually a great weapon for mid level, using pale pine and gold bundles(i have been going sharp infused, but im going to use it raw with DMB also). The fact it is buff-able makes up for the split, and it has the best dmg types for mid level as most people have less magic/lightning absorption. Then the moveset is not perfect but good, i use hollowslayer and flamberge a lot so it fit me. Then to really make it worthwhile, its very lightweight. Makes it so you can manage to have 37.7 poise and stat investment, all good things. Also one hand moveset has a poke, great for pairing with crossbow. Underrated but not top tier.

Yea it has low starting damage, but it has innate magic and lightning, meaning using either dark moon or lightning blade with a clutch ring gives this serious elemental damage. Also gets bonus blessed. I'd reccomend trying a high faith build with it and see how it goes

                                                                its a really good weapon.... if you have 40/40 STR & DEX and 50/50 FAI & INT with Chaos infusion, with Llyods ring and Fire clutch ring it has 918 or so AR... Otherwise, not exactly the best weapon sadly....

                                                                • Its probably not optimal but i love using this thing on a 60/60 int/fth dark sorcery build. With dark infusion i got over 800 AR and had a mean spellbuff on my izalith staff for GSD

                                                                  • Anonymous

Normally the split dmg sucks, but at low lvls your opponent will have weak defense and resistance. This allows more of the AR to get through. When chaos or dark infused it out damages dark hand. The 2 handed moveset starts the hyperarmor frames faster than any other great sword except hollowslayer.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            I infused it with Blessed on a Strength+Faith Paladin build.
                                                                            Combined with the typical HP regen items it is a pretty sturdy build.
                                                                            While the damage is lower than with other infusions, it drags out fights in your favor because of your HP regen.

                                                                            Overal nice weapon and if you are looking for an interesting build, try this one.

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                • Anonymous

On my 40/40/40/40 build, with either Chaos or Dark infusion, this sword reaches 762AR. The only sword that is higher on this setup is Lothric Knight GS with weight at 16.5, while this sword only has 6 in weight. This sword also swings fast, consumes much less stamina than UGS. The only downside I have experienced so far is it's short reach and lack of hyperarmor.

                                                                                    • This weapon, infused with Fire or Chaos, or just buffed with anything that has fire, deals all types of damage. Although, the sum is large but the respective damages are rather low. Seems like very useful at first, considering you'll hit everone's weaknesses too and deal damage consistently in a rather balanced way, or so you'd think... But isn't it actually a bad thing to deal low damage? Using this sword against a heavily armored opponent would cause it to deal lower percentages of each damage, for a lower amount than it would deal if it had high damage of one type. No?

This thing has been pretty viable for me and is quickly becoming my favorite weapon to use. It hits pretty hard, doesn't weigh that much (6.0 units), has a nice moveset imo, and I think it looks pretty sexy. Using two-handed heavy attacks I'm hitting 1317 damage with a blessed version + sacred oath + deep protection and 1340 damage with a heavy version (highest base dps I can achieve for a buffable weapon) + lightning blade + sacred oath; tested on the firekeeper. I'd also say I'm pretty bad at PVP overall, but this weapon seems to catch a lot of people off guard with how much damage it can output, and has made me hate multiplayer a little less :D

Ive spanked so many ganks using this bad boy that ive gotten com Ive been using it a lot, i recognize that its movesent isnt the best but its damage potential + weight more than compensate for the range and subpar moveset.

I mean what are you supposed to do with it or how are you to infuse it or what kind of build to use it on? No matter how i try it seems to do about equal dmg on refined, lightning, crystal and chaos/dark. It's not bad the dmg is good and comparable to amy other weapon but like why does it exist? It's good to have different dmg sources to bypass some of the exceptional enemies like the black slimes that fall on you from the roof. But other than that not much. I read a comment about it excels in buffs due to having already some magic and lightning dmg so makes it more rewarding for buffs.

                                                                                                  • Anonymous

Don't even have to play as aggressive as the weapon might usually require with it's shorter reach since, with active Regen, you'll actively win/outlast your opponent simply due to that, especially in duels/arena. Still pretty good for invasions and PvE as well given how high you can get up there in terms of Regen.

                                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                                      So the general consensus is you only want to use Drakeblood Greatsword over the Claymore or the Flamberge if you plan on buffing DbGs with Lightning Blade, Darkmoon Blade, or a sorcery buff. As the Claymore and Flamberge are better weapons with non-split damage and the Flamberge is an amazing weapon with Lightning and Crystal infusions. While this is all true, I did find another niche use for the Drakeblood Greatsword. I Lightning infused it and buff it with Lothric War Banner. In order to keep the buff with LWB, it needs to constantly be touching your offhand. So you can only use a greatsword one handed. So that, in my opinion, makes DbGs a better option than using a Lightning infused Flamberge. Since one of the biggest draws of the Flamberge is the glitched WA R2 (it does much more damage than it's supposed to) and you aren't able to use that with the LWB buff. Split damage becomes less of a detriment when the AR is higher. And having even just a little bit of magic damage is nice when you run into Crown of Dusk wearers (with or without the LWB buff). So yeah, just a neat little function I found with the DbGs that I thought I'd share. You can do this with a Crystal infused DbGs, too.

                                                                                                      • Anonymous

Honestly, this thing is mad decent at SL50-80 as a Lightning-infused companion to a 40 faith Canvas Talisman build. It's tied with the Bastard Sword in range, which is the lowest of the greatswords, meaning it requires slightly more aggressive spacing and doesn't roll catch as easily. It will make you want a Claymore, but I got over it pretty quickly, and if a retard like me can, so can you. It's not all bad news; you can pair it with an offhand Estoc, which can help with chasedowns, while also serving as a way to pressure an opponent running to Estus. Offhand Estoc L2s combo into anything as fast or faster than a 1-handed greatsword-class R1, so you can easily whack someone on their first sip and get a decent amount of damage out of it when you can't or shouldn't go for a double R1 punish. Anyone who's been in those situations knows what I'm talking about. Combine that with Stance-- the best WA for greatswords aside from Gael's, the 2HR1s of the Hollowslayer, and excellent riposte damage... and you end up with one of the most slept on weapons in a mid level Faith build's toolset. Do take care swinging an Estoc willy nilly around anything with hyperarmor, unless you've scared them badly enough that they allow it without trading.

Decent damage to all foes, rounded from 260 from iron dragonslayer, to 310 against nameless king. Plus the innate healing helps a lot.

Used all my chunks to get it to +9, farmed a chaos gem, got a pale tongue to put all my stats in int/faith....Disappointing. Something about a sword being innately magical enough to wield multiple elements is cool, but in DS3 keeping all the weapon damage in physical is probably best. If you do try to use this i'd stick with the infusions that still allow buffing. Probably get more out of your stats that way. The scaling on the innate magic and lighting is low enough you'll probably actually lose damage in those categories despite the scaling with dark/chaos unless you are a high level.

When i infuse my Drakeblood Greatsword with Fire/Deep it actually increases the physical attack. At +10 the physical attack jumps from 178 to 220 while adding the fire/dark attack value (which is also 220). Because of this i always use Fire/Deep infusion for my Drakeblood greatsword (or chaos for my pyromancer) instead of raw. I just love this weapon.

The Fire/Dark AR will be 334 (139+195).

Chuck in Flynn's if you feeling cocky. Just you wait.....
