DaS3 - Greatsword

Greatsword is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



This ultra greatsword, with its thick blade, is one of the heaviest of its kind.

Highly destructive if intolerably heavy.

There would appear to be some credence to the rumors that this sword tested the true limits of human strength.

Skill: Stomp
Use one's weight to lunge forward with a low stance and increased poise, and follow with strong attack for a spinning slash.

 

Notes and Tips

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • Gets bested by the Black Knight Greatsword on a 40/40 build. BKG has 612 AR, Refined Greatsword has 590 AR. However, the Greatsword can be buffed.
  • The Greatsword benefits greatly from Hollow and Raw infusions.
  • Does poorly with physical infusions on standard quality builds.
  • Hollow Greatsword with 60 STR/60 Dex/45 LCK has 673 AR.
  • The longest Ultra Greatsword in the game.
  • 66/65/94 on STR/DEX/LCK has 701 AR (731 AR two-handed).

 

 

Location/Where to Find

  • Looted from a corpse on top of a broken bridge in Farron Keep. Go straight ahead from the first bonfire until you reach a broken bridge, look behind you and you will see another piece of broken bridge and a body holding an item, that item is the Greatsword (video location).

      This is one of the few pages where you could put that pointless "berzerk lore theory" part and it would be accurate. And it's not here

        "Gets bested by the Black Knight Greatsword on a 40/40 build. BKG has 612 AR, Refined Greatsword has 590 AR." Yeah, but a Greatsword with a Heavy infusion gets 619 AR at only 40 Str (no dex required) so it beats BKGS will a lower stat requirement. The BKGS is lighter, but that can be offset by funneling those unused Dex points into Vit. This really ought to be on this page.

          How to win Dark Souls 3: Acquire Heavy infused Greatsword and attain 40 str. Then follow these steps: 1.) Find an enemy. 2.) Let it whiff its attack. 3.) Send it flying with a charged R2. 4.) Walk forward like a badass. 5.) Repeat steps 3 and 4.

            Raw almost isn't fair, I am not the best PVP player but it absolutely spanks players. Every once in a while you have to change it up because someone goes backstab fishing, but the R2 side swipe is also great. Reminds me of the DS2 Greatsword I absolutely loved. The only BIG bad thing is just the weight of it, you almost have to tailor your build around the weight early on.

              UGS’s really bring out the casual in me, and this one is especially brutal. The second hit on the R1 combo can do a 180° spin and is hard to punish efficiently, is the idea to bait the first and then second attack and then go for a back stab? Or am I just fundamentally missing how to win against UGS builds?

                This thing's too big to be called a sword. It's massive, thick, heavy, and far too rough, especially in PvP. Basically a heap of raw iron.

                  It’s perfect. A well times baseball bat swing knocks all humanoids flat on their backs and just in range for a follow up heavy attack. Save a little stamina for a quick attack and it’s one and done

                    i be honest, i prefer the ds1 versaion. I know this one is guts' sword, but it looks too unrealistic and bulky in my eyes

                      I like to use this for my Mage-Knight. Give it crystal infusion at 40 strength/intelligence and you deal 400-500 damage a swing on most enemies.

                        Running a quality faith build at sl123 rn and got it lighthning infused, with 30/30/38 str/dex/fth it does 748 damage 2 handed, in the arena 3 hit combo is enough, such a beast, no pve enemy is a problem for me anymore, why did I play through the whole game with +10 lothric knight ss and only discover the glorious power of ultra greatswords after beating midir :'(

                          On the "Max" chart, it says that the Lightning Greatsword +10 scales at C, D, A (Strength, Dex, Faith), but when you click on the "Lightning" tab at the top of the chart, it says D, D, A (Str, Dex, Faith) Which is it? And when is anyone in charge of this wiki planning on fixing any of the NUMEROUS mistakes all across this wiki?
