Great Scythe is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Attacks with this large scythe, normally used for crop harvesting, are effective at breaking past shields.

The magnificent sharp curved blade instills fear in opponents. Perhaps it is their survival instinct at work.

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.
  • Has innate shield pierce: 40% on all attacks and 80% on the weapon art.
  • Has a "Sweet Spot" meaning if the play hit with the pole part of the weapon it does 5% less damage, conversely if the player hits with the blade they deal 3% more damage. 

 

 

Location/Where to Find

  • Looted from Undead Settlement in a destroyed building near the rain of giant arrows and the White Birch Tree.

      This weapon is bugged. Actually deals strike damage of all things, despite saying it's a slash weapon. As that's the least resisted damage type in the the game, it's ugh... still only an a B-tier weapon in my book. Like it was before.

        I am wanting to use the Great Scythe with a Crystal infuse and basically go for a battle mage build. I am not very good with how gems hurt and help scaling yet. using my magic to punish foes from afar but be able to also fight up close. The Great Scythe has a pretty nasty sweet spot with it's range, or so I feel. Thoughts?

          Scythes are so underrated, I'm surprised they aren't meta. You have a weapon with slightly slower swing speed of a straight sword, but slightly greater damage than a straight sword and the range of a halberd. It's a a fast weapon so its surprisingly easy to catch great weapon users early on during wind-up frames of attack animation and stagger them. And it pierces shields like no tomorrow at least 80-94 damage pierced per swing compared to shotels, which deal average 37 damage per swing. People also don't realize they are best utilized at <30% equip load. You long roll out of an attack, walk back for half a second and use normal attack. The distance is a sweet spot, just out of range of even UGS weapons when you time attacks right. This weapon especially is great for any spell build.

              Is something wrong here? it says simple infusion looks like it out powers a lot of other infusions damage wise. 210 magic damage plus scaling?!

                The damage type switches based on range. Hitting with the blade portion deals slash damage, and hitting with the handle does impact. This was tested on the cage enemies in Dungeon, and the difference in damage is staggering. I just wanted to show the rest of you and have someone update the wiki for it.
