        Heavy infusion, buff it liberally. Hand out naps to basically everything. The harder bosses and enemies are often weak to strike damage, and you can make it even worse for them by using Lightning Blade. You might be tempted to use a Lightning infusion if you have high faith, but the AR is quite a lot worse. You have to make a choice -- higher than usual for the base weapon damage that you don't need to reapply every 60 seconds, or much higher damage that only lasts for 60 seconds. You could try having two of them for different uses, but it is rare to have a boss fight, for instance, where you get the chance to cast Lightning Blade again.

        This weapon is additionally very effective against players, causing stunlocks and dishing out insane damage. It isn't used as often either so, chances are, people won't be able to come up with effective methods of countering it. That won't always happen, because clever invaders/hosts will know it or recognise the moveset as being just the standard GH one, but it can occasionally work in your favour.

        Pair with Cathedral Knight helm, Black Iron helm or the Iron Helm for maximum DEUS VULT goodness. Go forth and smite the infidel!

            Such is the power of the Great Mace that it will break weaker shields with a single blow! Attacks against Perseverance will prove fruitless, unless your opponent attacks with the sacred backstab!

              Contends with all other great maces damage wise on just about any build.

              Requires half the stamina.

              Has the best weapon art in the game.

              GG.

                I'm currently having a great deal of fun with this weapon and a very light weight build based on the Dancer's armour set. I carry a little dagger too, which I buff where enemies can see. Then, as they begin the fight thinking I'm some arsehole backstabbing quickstep fool, great mace outta nowhere! Usually the confusion is enough to get a stunlock from the R1, then R2. It's usually all over by that point.

                Walk softly and carry a big stick.

                  A long time ago when I played with this, it looked like 2H R1 isn't a true combo, wasn't very reliable in my experience. Is this fixed now? I see a lot of these nowadays.

                    This hits like a semi-truck with rockets attached to it. I got it yesterday randomly without knowing it existed and upgraded it all the way, it is by far my favorite weapon in the game now.

                      60 STR and 60 DEX, a Sharp Great Mace has higher damage than Heavy and even Refined, you guys try to figure that***** out.

                      Heavy infusion has STR scaling rate of B, Refined has D/D scaling rate in both STR and DEX, which turned out to be same as a B scaling, while Sharp has a E in STR scaling and a B in DEX.

                        I edited the pure physical damage values of +0 and +10 but I think I fukked up at +10 infused ones since I assumed it was double the base damage of +0 infused like the regular path. Regular path is now correct though.

                          650 AR with heavy infusion and 66 strength for those wondering

                          Basically makes smoughs and dragon tooth obsolete, but ledos is still viable because of that beastly weapon art (732 AR!!!)

                                Heavy Great Mace and Vordt's Great Hammer have the same scaling and damage when max upgraded, but Vordt's does frost damage and weighs a unit less. Is there any reason to use this one instead?
