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 34.0697xl on the 1h R1 36.6942xl on the 2h R1.
  • 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

  • Dropped from: 
    Hollow Slave - Flamberge [CotD] 2.00%
    Hollow Slave - Flamberge [GA] 2.00%
    Hollow Slave - Flamberge [US] 2.00%
  • 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.

      This weapon clutched my SL1 run for me. I used it for Demon Prince, Gael, Friede and Gravetender. Good range, good stagger and also bleed potential. Only requires the hunter ring to equip as well so you can get some flexibility on your ring loadout compared to dragonslayers axe.

        I love this GS so much with a str/faith/int build with 30 dex 30 int and around 40str this thing with chaos or dark gem is just otherwordly in dealing dmg WA R2 hit harder then your mom and the dark dmg is just good for everything becsause mostly everything is very weak against dark dmg. I only swap that GS to my Lothric Knight Sword when i need a longsword

          started as cleric for 14 luck, used all 7 gold coins, then 15 tries after that I got it. the weapon art is fantastic. at plus 2 regular it can kill a hollow manservent with weapon art r2 r1 combo

            Having "Flam"berge and not having it possess innate fire damage is false advertising. Bleed is garbage anyway.

              On a 40/60 dex/faith build, sharp infused and buffed with Lightning blade can bring this up to 720 AR

              Not many people expect the damage and when they realize how much damage it does, they just squirm.

              I love this weapon.

                This weapon is so underused that when I fight people wielding it I'm at a disadvantage because I spend half the fight squinting and trying to figure out whether it's a claymore or onyx blade

                  Hi guys im flamberge, I lost my move set and my scalling arent as good but one day ill beat claymore I also look cool and have bleed!! Pls use me guys ;.;

                    this weapon looks cool and all that, quite and entertaining to use as not a single soul expects it. However the process of obtaining this weapon nearly made me go hollow.

                      Fun Fact: a Crystal Infusion nets a slightly higher AR than a Lightning Infusion (provided int and fth are identical).

                      • Anonymous

                        The weapon art R2 deals absolutely broken damage, it deals ever so slightly less than a fully charged 2h R2. It's not THE most damaging greatsword, others outclass it by a little bit, but if you can consistently land the WA it doesn't matter because you're still hitting people with charged heavy damage. It works really well with basically any build/infusion. I always crystal infuse one on my wizards as a poor man's MLGS but after getting the MLGS I always end up switching back to it anyway.

                          People are sleeping on this weapon for a pure dex build with sharp infusion. This is where the weapon gets ahead of the other great swords. 491AR on just 40 dex with 15 Str, and stays very good at higher dex levels.

                            This is one of the weakest greatswords. It has not that great moveset, damage also isn't that great. But I love it, mostly because of hipster factor. It is hard to get, it looks cool and isn,t even remotly meta (I guess?). You would think that bleed on greatsword is useless, but when you invade a chugger it can proc a lot faster than you think. Plus, in the Undead Arena, full of backstab fishers, cowardly casters and phantom range explointers, it gave me gold badge, mostly thanks to its powerful weapon art. It might not be weapon for you, but it definetly is for me.

                            And anegdote, beacuse i can't put it anywhere else: in catacombs, whlie waiting to invade another host, i was invaded myself. After greeting guy started blocking with dark hand. I tried to open with weapon art, but messed up and performed jumping attack. Immediate shieldbreak, riposte, and rollcatch with wa. Duel ended in 5 seconds.This fun memory is another reason I love this weapon. Cheers.

                              The farm I'd recommend is at the Dillapidated Bridge in the Undead Settlement after either befriending or killing the bow giant. When running through the place with all of the arrows there's a shack on the left, a little higher up on the hillside. On top of the shack is a Flamberge Thrall who'll drop down once you come near. If you optimize it, it's less than a minute per run.
                              Just make sure you aren't embered for it, otherwise you can get invaded by Hodrick, putting you at the receiving end of this weapon.

                                Besides Claymore, this is probably the best GS in the game. Sharp infusion, bleeding serum is almost unstoppable in PVE

                                  the look isn't really my style, but damn does this pack a punch. the base damage is a solid 20 above claymore and bastard sword and the weapon art is a monster that has somehow managed to avoid from's detection to this day, not to mention it has an extra benefit of bleed and weighs less.

                                    A Heavy Flamberge is secretly the best weapon in the game for both pvp and pve in str builds. It swings fast, deals respectable damage, and the bleed effect is excellent against bosses and tanky enemies.




                                    For PVP, 9/10 players just copy meta builds. In short, they never expect a flamberge and aren't prepared to deal with one. Especially how fast it swings for a GS and how many attacks you can chain before running out of stamina. When players try to trade attacks you will always hit first if your timing is decent. The longer combos catch them off guard after rolling. And the bleed meter stresses out some players giving you a mental advantage. The light weight lets you wear tanky armor like havels.



                                    I mained a heavy flamberge from Ng to ng 3+, and the only time I had to switch it out was for Midir in The Ringed City (used a longsword to kill him).



                                    The only cons are there is no thrust attack, and the range is weak against fume UGS. You have to play up close and personal with this weapon. But that is my playstyle anyway.

                                      Hands down the best greatsword in the game, only ONE weakness being range. For STR builds, infuse it with Heavy Gem and you've got a weapon that will get you through every boss from ng to ng3+.


                                      The secret lies in its speed, stamina cost and weight. Being so light means you can wear heavy armour. Low stamina cost means you can get 6-7 swings in one go while other GS can only manage 3-5. Lastly, the bleed is a boss-slayer. It staggers most of them making bosses like Nameless King and Demon Prince much easier.

                                        Great weapon... IF YOU ARE A CASUL

                                        Any sensible player should quickly convert to the beautiful PKCS within seconds of using this poopy nerd sword

                                        • I ran a SL1 Flamberge .
                                          WTF IS THIS WEAPON ART DMG!!!!
                                          Dude none other weapon at +6 SL1 does so much dmg...
                                          Like 1 attack and WA staggered Dancer.
                                          And i dont include the bleed dmg.
                                          It may have small range but damn its worth.

                                            I've rolled with a Heavy Flamberge throughout my STR build in PvE, and its excellent. It's one of the faster heavy weapons you can use, and the bleed helps a lot with many bosses. It also doesn't empty your stamina in 3 swings like most hammers and UGS weapons.

                                            For PvP its pretty fun, because players don't expect it and they especially don't expect how many swings you can get before you run out of stamina. Easy to catch them after rolling with repeated attacks. The range is not great though, and against sweaty tryhards and meta players it wont do so well. But its still great fun!

                                              This thing has incredible weapon art damage. Great for trading with ultras and other heavy weapons + roll catch on wakeup

                                                            if you've got decently fast load times, it's probably faster to farm the thrall where the cleric set is. you can jump up the little ledge if you walk up on the dodgy clipping of the tombstones, and from there it's a short walk to the thrall. usually ~20 second reset times w/ a bone/csf (on ps5 load times), which was much faster for me

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    Also me: *randomly gets this off the first flamberge thrall I kill while screwing around in the Cathedral*

                                                                    Why is my life like this?

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        Also a pseudo combo for 2h R1 L2 R1 which could one shot any unembered player.
                                                                        It also have shield break L2 R1 for those turtle. Rolling R1 faster than claymore, and innate bleed which could oppress other player with bleed build up

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            Needless to say, buff Item Discovery if you can.

                                                                              • Anonymous

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?

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  • Anonymous

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.

                                                                                      • Anonymous

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.

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                          107 ID, no coins or rings

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.

                                                                                            • Anonymous

Carthus Flame Arc or a Charcoal Pine buff completes the aesthetic. Plus it doesn't take too much STR/DEX investment at all.

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.

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.

                                                                                                      • Anonymous

I don't have CE so I can't do exact calculations, but can anyone confirm or deny this? Thank you!

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!

                                                                                                              • A while ago I made a comment that this is pretty unsuitable, if not unusable, for a bleed infusion. I redact that statement. Though it's definitely more viable on a quality refined build, blood infusion is still viable. There's a 3 hit soft combo I just found out (my least used weapon class so I'm probably behind the curve). R1 R1 and heavy stance roll catch. Then you can switch to a blood bandits knife and chase them down while they frantically search for blood moss. Again, not as good as refined but it's unexpected and really fun. I've never seen a bleed build use this, give it a try if you're running one.
