Greatsword of Judgment is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.
A ceremonial sword, held in Pontiff Sulyvahn's left hand, respresenting the judgement of the moon, but with magic far closer to sorcery than any existing lunar power. Its dark blue hues, deeper than the darkest moon, reflect sorcerer Sulyvahn's true nature.
Skill: Stance of Judgment
Assume stance to unleash dark magic. Use normal attack for a lunging thrust, and strong attack to emit side-sweeping wave.
Notes and Tips:
- Cannot be Buffed or Infused.
- Reinforced with Titanite Scale.
- WA buff gives non-scaling +80 magic AR.
- WA buff will stay active for approximately 35 seconds.
- The pattern found on the Greatsword of Judgement is somewhat similar in style to the engraving found on the Slave Knight armor set, though they may not be connected.
- Shares some visual designs with Ludwig's Holy Blade from Bloodborne.
- Uses Bastard Sword moveset, but with a thrust and a shockwave for its weapon art.
- The weapon art's strong attack deals more damage when both the blade and sword beam hit the target.
- An excellent alternative to the Moonlight Greatsword for Intelligence builds with physical stat investments, for this greatsword performs the same type of shockwave minus the vortex, and it does not degrade at the same rate as the Moonlight Greatsword.
Scaling & Softcaps:
- 17/15/12 = 419 AR = Base Stats
