Great Corvian Scythe is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Great scythe of the forlorn souls guided by heretical storytellers. The Mistress of the Painted World is said to wield a great scythe herself. Great scythes inflict profuse bleeding, such that the blood splatters on the wielder.

Skill: Neck Swipe
This attack aims for the scruff of a foe's neck, and when successful, functions as a head shot, inflicting heavy damage.

 

Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • Each strike that lands on an enemy will cause Bleed build-up to yourself, reminiscent of the Lifehunt Scythe from Dark Souls. Though the self inflicted bleed does not appear to do much damage, the build up will also stack with enemy bleeds. This can be very dangerous as the enemy bleed will deal normal bleed damage.
  • Has the longest range out of all the Reapers and has the highest innate Bleed too.
  • Has innate shield pierce: 40% on all attacks, and 80% on the weapon art.
  • Has a "Sweet Spot" meaning if the player hits with the shaft of the weapon it does 5% less damage, conversely if the player hits with the blade they deal 3% more damage.
  • The WA has hyperarmor

      There's a lot of debate between pontiff great scythe and friede's great scythe, but with the frozen weapon spell, this scythe right here just buries both into mediocrity. Ridiculous range, terrifying ar and scaling, insane bleed build up for it's combos and strike damage up close that will punish any unfortunate whiff to death. The only thing the other two scythes have over this one are the weapon art, and even then a well placed neck swipe can end a fight with headshot + higher bleed build up.

        I got 5 of them while farming for the storyteller staff in Untended Graves, then went there on another character and got a scythe in 3 runs. Seems like the quickest way to farm this if you've gotten there, especially with the coiled sword shard

          just been trying this on a 40 dex/luck build in SL125 pvp and boy oh boy slap some carthus rouge on this with a bloodbite ring and watch the DPS fly

          • Anonymous

            It isn't clearly stated in description, but bleed on you procs for every hit in enemy, not hit you perform, so it is dangerous to swipe multiple targets at once. I didn't care about self bleed till Deacons fight, when i nearly bled myself in a couple of hits.

              This MF'er has 451 AR while Hallow infused with 40 STR 40 DEX 40 LUCK.
              And then you can still throw a buff on top. (you better carthus rouge this baby, your bleed numbers will go through the roof)

                        I heard this takes really long to farm for, but I was determined to do 3h of murder to get it so I just went to halfway fortress and killed the 1 scythe corvian just outside the entrance and I got it in around 10 minutes and 21 tries lmao

                          It’s dark parameter bonus is wrong. It’s C B A A from at least +9. Level dex along with int/faith and it gets a huge damage increase with the parameter bonus

                            This chart says it has 41 bleed when blood infused but 47 hollow infused, is that accurate? Smells fishy unless the luck scaling with hollow applies to its innate bleed damage for some reason

                              Made a NG character, fought some corvians and guess what I got the scythe without the intention of getting it, literally just wanted to go the bonfire and this item dropped with my 110 item discovery. wtf and I farmed this item back then like an hour with 400 item discovery.

                                The Scythe gives massive stagger almost to every NPC who gets hit by it. With this weapon, I had no problems in the Catacombs of Carthus whatsoever.

                                    Best way I have found to farm these is by starting at the Anri/Horrace bonfire then wait about 4 seconds until the roaming corvian converges with one of his stationary brothers so you can combo them both with one bar. Then you have enough time to take out the 3rd corvian before it mutates. Kill the one on the bridge and then repeat. Only the Scythe carriers drop it so it's not worth the time clearing the rest of the map.

                                      Oh man this weapon is fun to use. Every swing is swift, smooth and has a satisfying crunch when it hits. A real shame about the pathetic range on the 2H R2. Will likely use it one handed for the superior R2.

                                        I've noticed something a bit odd with this weapon. Against some enemies, the one handed R2 does more damage than the two handed R2. This is taking the potential tip bonus into account (I think). And its all slash damage, so its not a case of different damage types.

                                        Whats going on here? Do any other weapons have this quirk?

As for bigger opponents Heysel Pick with old moonlight combo and great heavy soul arrow for distance. Pve opinions and PvP please.

                                            If you’re doing a Luck build, consider slapping a poison infusion on this. The damage output is pretty bad, but it’s just so fun to see the poison and bleeding rack up so quickly. Also it looks sick lmao

                                              The real reason you bleed while attacking with this weapon is because you are getting cut by your own edginess.

                                                I like how this has some of the best elemental scaling (ignore the letter, the actual scaling value is much higher than it says) but it still hits like a wet noodle. hella chip though, 300 through most shields on dark infusion

                                                  Haven't played the game in a while, but this was always my favorite weapon. It's not the best weapon in the world in that it won't net you easy PvP kills just by picking it up and spamming R1, and there are definitely more optimal weapons to use for PvE (though Carthus Rouge on this thing does go through bosses pretty fast), but mastering the spacing of this weapon and learning to read your opponent with it makes you look and feel like a total badass. It's a whole lot easier for me to enter fight clubs and go undefeated for hours because I'm spamming katana running attacks or staggered greatsword R1s, but all my most exciting fights were with this scythe.

                                                    Chase recently did a showcase on it, and it has some interesting true combos. Apparently r1 can transition to jump attack, with either 1H or 2H. Pretty interesting and i might give it more love soon

                                                      I found kinda by accident that this weapon gets C-B-A-A scaling with chaos and dark infusions at +10. I did not think any weapon scaled that high. Lothric KS, Astroa GS, and Harald CGS, all get C-C-A-A scaling, which I had thought was the highest. Can anyone confirm that this is the highest scaling C/D infusion you can get in the game? Cuz if this is the highest scaling weapon you can get for elemental infusions, then that's definitely worth noting.

                                                        Same as with the Corvian Greatknife, I recommend people farming for this wait for the Corvian's wings to sprout before killing them. I can't prove it, but I suspect the drop-rate improves once they've transformed.

In PvP i can`t connect my R1>R1 true combo, bacause second hit just does not reach to the opponent (if the first hit got from maximum distance). It really annoying.

I read on more than one Reddit post that this has a 0.97% drop rate tested at an item discovery of 352. I want to farm a set of 3, but it took like 5 hours to farm one at 432 item discovery.

                                                              Wow, I totally missed this weapon my first playthrough, I didn't know it existed because of the extremely low drop rate. At 70/70 and 60/60 my AR is 643. This weapon scales crazy good with chaos and dark, at C-B-A-A. I think that is the highest scaling I have ever seen for chaos/dark. With that, plus the shield chip damage, I have become much better at PvP with this weapon. I do not really understand much about the bleeding action with this weapon, I know 38 base bleed is the highest in the game, but I really do not get how this works against me in the negative way described. And I also have not experience with bleed builds as my luck is at 7, but I would have to believe damage would be massive. I would love to see some stats from bleed builds with this weapon. It's been shredding in PvP for me recently.

                                                                As good as this one is, the great scythe's lower weight can be a godsend when you're trying to work with heavily weight-constrained hollow builds. Anyone trying to use multiple weapons at once in PVP should know. The great scythe does slightly more base damage with identical scaling at hollow infusion too.

                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                  Is the base bleed for a Hallow infused really higher than the base bleed for a Blood infused? Seems a bit odd. Hallow Build would have LUK to scale the bleeding too so does that make Hallow more dmg AND more bleed even at lower levels?

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        The moment you know the weapon's range, this scythe becomes a monster in PvP! You can outrange most meta weapons, and while the weapon doesn't do a lot of damage, it can quickly and easily wear your enemy down.

                                                                        • Anonymous

There really is no reason to use the bleed gem on this, then, unless you for some reason aren't going to Hollow your character.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              • Anonymous

It's a awful weapon; nothing more than a reskin of an earlier scythe that did it better, it's bleed is downright frustrating to deal with especially with gank bosses and overall, a horrible weapon.

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  Love this weapon. It's medium-to-long range, it's fast, and it has both vertical and horizontal sweeps for fighting large groups, or taking on a single enemy in a narrow space. While not incredibly powerful, it's heavy enough to stunlock humanoid enemies and PvP invaders, allowing you to build bleed against them fairly quick. Sure, you also build up blood loss yourself, but it feels more like a baseless threat than anything. It only rises by maybe 5% with each swing, and depletes faster than a normal bleed build. It's only ever a problem against a massive group, like the Deacons of the Deep, but it's still completely manageable with a collection of red moss clumps. Best of all, it seems any attack that connects with the enemy's head or neck does even higher damage, not just the weapon skill, so some hits, if matched with the enemy's bleed build, will net close to 2000 HP of damage in just one combo!

                                                                                  • Anonymous

Like Say Raw +10 With Fire Buff Vs Fire/Chaos +10 and no Pyro buff. Which would be stronger? I am a Magic user. Currently have 42Int and like 30Faith. I am assuming the Infusions but was wondering just how much stronger, as of course the Raw infusion would allow the use of quite a few different weapon buffs which would make it more versatile

                                                                                    • Anonymous

It got unpredictably fast attacks and the range somewhat compensates for the lack of poise during attacks. My tactic is R1 R1 R2 or R1 R2. Another combo that I use (which rarely hits all the way to the end, but if it does, the enemy is screwed) is R1 R1 R2 R1 R2 or R1 R1 R2 WA.

                                                                                        • Anonymous

When i go up against the common GS and UGS meta i just have to bait a hit, dodge and catch them as they roll. it also seems people have a hard time parrying this thing too but they might've just been bad at parrying

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            Anon here, I've found that this and Pontiff Scythes can absolutely murk PvP if you are good with spacing. Your only real counter are people who manage to use Quickstep effectively, and Giant a** weapons with hyper armor. The bleed buildup really, really isn't that much. Bottom line, this Weapon (and Pontiff's) is absolutely godlike if you're smart about your distancing, and swing times. (quickstepping can be counter by throwing an R1 for them to dodge, and holding an R2 to bait another, and releasing it in time with the end of the quickstep)

                                                                                            One of my all-time favorite weapons. You can dual wield scythes btw, and the R!'s combo into each other, which is quite amazing on a Bleed + Sharp/hollow infused Scythe combo, allowing both raw damage, and bleed to stack quickly as well.

                                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                                      This is one sexy weapon, although heavy is an awful choice for it
                                                                                                      (I mained str builds) as even refined outclasses heavy in terms of damage. Im not sure but i believe the patch gave the weapon art hyperarmor (although it might just be my poise stat making that happen) and the weaponart swings faster than an uncharged r2. This weapon imo is one of the most fun and versatile as i believe it has both blunt and slice damage types to counter many monsters. One more thing. Is it just me or does this do bonus poise damage? I was able to stagger winged knights with this and i generally cant with a weapon.

Brought a Hollow infused +10 Corvian Scythe to Lothric Castle/Grand Archives and slaughtered EVERY KNIGHT BETWEEN BOTH JOINTS BY SIMPLY MASHING R1. Got a shield and a straight sword? You're stagger bait. Got a tower shield and a spear? Let me build up that bleed while you fail to block me. Got a Blessed Weapon buffed great sword? While you're applying that buff, I'll be etching an epitaph in your face. I love this thing. Fast attack speed, great range, no stagger on shield hit + shield navigation, surprisingly low stamina cost when 1-handed, high poise damage, and huge bleed build up. Ignore the sub-par AR, this thing hits as fast as a straight sword with 2x the reach, 2x the stagger, and a big'ol bleed proc. Admittedly the WA is fairly terrible outside of mobs. Not sure how it performs in PvP, given that it can be parried even when 2-handed, but this weapon is definitely one of the unsung heroes of DS3.
