Flamberge is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Greatsword with an undulating blade. The blade, resembling flame, was crafted to mutilate flesh and induce bleeding.

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.
  • 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 Flamberge has a motion value of 185 on the Weapon Skill R2, while other stance greatswords have a motion value of 134 on the Weapon Skill R2

 

  • The Flamberge 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 Flamberge has Sweeping 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 60 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 (Slash) 48 26 78 6
Charged R2 30 8 60 6
Rolling R1 (Slash) 28 16 42 18
Rolling R2 48 26 78 4
Running R1 36 20 56 18
Jumping Attack 60 30 70 38
Weapon Skill R1 46 20 76 16
Weapon Skill R2 48 20 78 12
  •   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

Location/Where to Find

  • Rare (approx 5%) drop from Flamberge-wielding Hollow Slaves in Undead Settlement, Cathedral of the Deep, and Grand Archives when wearing farming equipment! (Symbol of Avarice, Crystal Sage's Rapier and Covetous Gold Serpent Ring)
  • 2 Hollows located in the Undead settlement - One just before the stone bridge near the 3 firebomb throwing enemies and Cliff Underside Bonfire. The other is located near the Cleric set and Mortician's Ashes.
  • 3 Hollows at the Cathedral of the Deep - One is on the first roof that you make it to just before the archers with fire arrows below. Next one is in the room on the left just after the above mentioned archers with fire arrows, beware the 3 that ambush you at the room entrance. Last one is in the cathedral floor, in the water where Longfinger Kirk invades.
  • 1 Hollow in the Grand Archives - Near the top of the area, at the staircase just before the final Outrider Knight. There is also a Axe weilding Hollow and a wax head mage 
  • An easy way to get it is to farm the Flamberge-wielding Hollow Slave at the stone bridge near Cliff Underside Bonfire. Run up the stairs and past the firebomb throwers, drop down the small roof and onto the ground, run to the large stone building with a door (opened as shortcut from second bonfire) and kill the Thrall (target) inside. Then run back to the bridge and drop down to the small ledge leading to the Cliff Underside Bonfire for a refresh or Homeward Bone out.

      On one of my recent playthroughs it dropped from a hollowed slave, had never seen it before so I wanted to look it up, weapon is so rare I haven't seen it in over 1000 hours and this new playthrough gets it first try

        This beast with carthus rouge not only looks sick, it ****s up everything vulnerable to bleed. Still prefer the Claymore, and the Onyx Blade looks cooler, but hey what is better than the Claymore, and what looks cooler than the Onyx Blade?

          though i prefer claymore, this thing absolutely shreds things with low bleed def, it was especially good against friede, 9/10, would recommend

            Took me forever to get but it was worth it! Imo it's better than the claymore in certain aspects. Claymore does more dmg but the flamberge inflicts bleed. If you don't want to farm it I understand but if you do take the time to farm it you won't regret it.

                This weapon with crystal infusion at 20 strength 20 dex and 40 int outclasses the Moonlight great sword+5 by quite a bit. It also does DOUBLE damage when using the forward thrust weapon art as long as you have FP. I just used it on someone wearing mainly light armour and did 1050 damage to them. This is probably one of the best weapons a sorcerer build can have.

                    The moveset on this one is worse than the Claymore imo, since there's no thrust attack. Damage depends on the build; this one is better for Dex builds while the Claymore is better for Strength builds (with the appropriate infusions, obviously). The better WA and Bleed damage are also an advantage.

                      this thing not only is better than claymore at like EVERYTHING literally (damage, scaling, range and moveset), but it also looks like a small, dark zweihander, which makes the claymore fanboys go back to the graves they came from hahahahah!

                        As a Pyromancer you are kind of obliged to carry one. Its blade resembles flame, after all. Carthus Flame Arc or a Charcoal Pine buff completes the aesthetic. Plus it doesn't take too much STR/DEX investment at all.

                          weapon art R2 on this thing does disgusting damage compared to claymore and other GSs. Otherwise the moveset is mediokre and sadly no thrust attacks :(. But the weapon art's broken danage makes this REALLY fun to use. There's a video about the weapon art's damage but in short: Flamberge wasn't meant to have stance as a weapon art, it was meant to have stomp, but fromsoft changed it for some reason and the damage of the stomp version was kept.

                              Excuse me for being a simpleton, but I’m slightly confused about how many points I should invest into strength and dex before reaching the cap. I’m going for a quality build that uses a bit of pyromancy and miracles on the side, and I’m also wondering if hammering a refined gem on both Flamberge and Longsword are viable in this situation.

                                  I've heard the ridiculous damage on the R2 WA is due to 2 factors. 1, it was originally meant to have stomp, and the MV got transferred and 2, it deals only slash and not thrust damage, which gets calculated differently. I don't have CE so I can't do exact calculations, but can anyone confirm or deny this? Thank you!

                                    This is my personal favorite weapon since DS3 launched. This little beast proves luck build is more than just R1! Flexible moveset, edgy look. My suggestion is just slapping the RAW gem and put the rest of point in other stat, until you get a hand on profaned coal, get around 30 luck (+10 luck can be given by 2 hollow infusion). 40 luck hollow flamberge gives you decent 400ish per swing with high bleed build up with rouge. MAKE LUCK BUILD GREAT AGAIN!
