Harald Curved Greatsword is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3. It is part of the The Ringed City DLC.



Giant gold-decorated curved sword wielded by warriors of the Harald Legion, who sought the dark soul.

The swords sank into the dark with the legion, where their blades were severely corroded.

Skill: Sever
Hold the giant blade with both hands and slash repeatedly at foe's feet.

 

Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • Outclassed by the Exile GS in damage with most infusions at meta level, only outclasses Exile GS with sharp infusions, therefore is better used for it's unique qualities (weapon art and range).



Location/Where to Find

  • The Ringed City: From the Earthen Peak Ruins bonfire, head over the castle and roots into the swamp. On the left end of the swamp, under the flying hollow, you will find a cave-like area under a root with a large hollow. You can find the greatsword on a corpse here. Video Example

      this is probably the easiest weapon to use for people who wanna see big numbers in two r1's, i love it. On a dark build, this thing can 3-4 shot most players, literally all you have to do is land two r1r1's on anyone before they can estus and you win. Its stupid but i love it.

        believe it or not, there are hollows that exist out there who not only believe this weapon is garbage, but that all greatswords curved and straight are BAD

        don't listen to them, this is EASILY one of the strongest weapons in the game - and it's fun

        • Anonymous

          I'm a huge sucker for curved greatswords in general, they're all so damn cool and fun to use.
          And every single one of their AR's is ****ing terrifying on a 40/40/40 STR/DEX/LUCK Hollow build.
          This bad boy included, infuse with heavy if you're pure STR, but consider Hallow!
          Sever them toes!!

            The wa attacks are just as fast as curved swords's 2h r1, but slightly stronger and up to 4 hits can be connect with it + hyperarmor. When true comboed with the first r1, only 3 hits connect.

            If this doesn't demonstrate you how flawed this poise system is, nothing will ever open your eyes.

              Its funny how the R1 spam roll catches as a regular moveset. Makes sense since those fatbois be roll catching for days.

                best weapon ig! better than lkss and pkcs (both are so bad (duh)) imagine using a bad tiny sword to attempt to kill gankers and then rage cuz u got killed by them and lied to by ur friend that said that the sword u were using was a 'good' sword. we all know that the harald curved greatsword is the best in terms of range and damage! anyways if u don't use this sword then i can only suggest one thing! GIT GUD! however if you are using this godly weapon i praise you and the sun!

                • Anonymous

                  Lets make a WA that starts fast, has hyper armor, and combos into a final hit that'll take half of most peoples hp. And to top it off, give it the already wonky hitboxes of a curved greatsword. I feel like Memezaki designed this monstrosity for his personal use to rekt scrubs, but it got placed in the game by accident.

                    this weapon is kinda painful to fight against, somehow it completely destroys my puny quality build in 2 combos or 3-4 slashes

                      Ok who edits this page? It shows in greatsword category here but in normal (all) weapons page it shows in curved greatswords.

                        The only reason this weapon is good at roll catching it because it has a ****ed up hotbox good damage but requires no skill what so ever in pvp 4/10

                        • Anonymous

                          Most of the curved Greatswords are already solid weapons, but Harald has some strange properties that make it extremely powerful.

                          Right off the bat, it's a weapon that is not only great for Strength, but also scales well with Dark when infused, even though the weapon doesn't give much indication that it should so well with a Dark build. While its AR is slightly outpaced by other curved swords, and a twinge slower, it also has slightly higher range which is fantastic for clipping enemies that would normally be out of reach for the other swords.

                          Yet the weapon's big surprise is that weapon art: it has crazy strong armor frames making you difficult to stagger, and a true combo that can slam enemies for well over 1k damage if executed properly from start to finish. Now, the start of the weapon art is fairly short-range compared to the rest of the weapon, so you're not looking to spam this move - it's a one-time punish against a PvP opponent who chooses to attack at the wrong time, not something you just use whenever you can, but if you can hit it, you can definitely spank a gank.

                            It is a great curved greatsword with good damage and S strength scaling with heavy gem it is also good for roll catching and on top of that it looks cool i highly reccomend it for NG+ or a late game strength build you can't go wrong with this weapon

                              im doing a STR/DEX build, and is the Heavy infusion any good with that fat S bonus? or is Sharp/Refined just better in general?

                                  So yup the best weapon for a dark infusion and even outclasses the exile curved sword. Keep this a secret from the tryhards at least we can still backstab them when they’re using the paired meme swords

                                          This weapon has a slower attack speed than other CGS such as the exile but the hilarious thing is that it’s speed is perfect at roll catching. A 3rd R1 is automatically timed perfectly and if someone rolls to your side they will take 4 swings.

                                              Probably the best late game weapon. Amazing scaling if you infuse it with Dark/Chaos (max 877 AR without buffs). Only 58 less AR than the Lothric Knight Greatsword (which happens to be the weapon with the highest AR of 935 without buffs) while consuming only half the stamina per swing and having faster attack speed.

                                                This has been my go to weapon, though I don't recall when exactly I started using it, but it's had to have been like a year that I've played with this weapon on and off. PvE wise, it's amazing. It's attack speed falls in between great sword and ultra greatswords. But damage and and stun potential are definitely on par with ultra great swords. Has an "s" scaling when heavy infused with 66 strength and 18 dexterity gets you an AR of 629. As the two handed moveset swings faster and has more hyper armor at no real detriment (might be a pixel less range), there's no real reason to one hand the weapon ever, making a two hand strength build the most viable. Sharp infusions won't match two handed AR until 22 strength and 99 dexterity. PvP wise, also pretty amazing. It's main moveset is standard for the Great Curved Sword class, but this weapon has the best range and above average damage so it's generally just a little bit better. The main draw of the weapon is it's weapon art, it has absolutely ridiculous hyper armor (which seems to activate almost instantly) and an insane true combo of L2+R2+R1. The only weapon you can't out hyper armor is the Ledo's Great hammer weapon art. Also, like all curved greatswords, the weapon art can't be parried, making it a great parry punish. Weapon art has some long recovery frames, especially after the R1 (the leap attack), making you vulnerable to backstabs. High stability shields and backstab fishing are troublesome tactics to face with this weapon alone, so toss on a knights sayers ring when people start turtling, use a crossbow, or drop some fire bombs. Weapons biggest weakness, is that it looks like a nice sword covered in hair balls and sewage. Utter garbage to look at. Probably some lore reason, but I think it would be way better without the crud covering it.

                                                          This weapon has a***** ton of hyper armor, hellishly good strength scaling, and the best range of any curved great sword, however it is almost as slow as an ultra great sword. It's R1's can easily be reaction parried (dependant on lag). The weapon art while it comes out quick, has very low range and long recovery frames. This weapon requires a passive play style centered around trading and reveals this weapons very slow nature and it's biggest weakness: It is too slow to play agrresively. It can be endlessly rolled. It's easily punished by cross bows, quick spells like farron dart, and thrown items. Also, if you start using spells that pressure your opponent like black serpent or homing soul mass, they won't have time to activate hyper armor frames as you rush them, as your spells can initiate a stun to be followed up with faster weapons like a straight or curved sword. Fun weapon for invasions against new players who don't know any better, as this thing is a trade machine. It falls in just the right place of speed, poise damage, range, and weight that you have more hyper armor than lighter heavy weapons, but light enough can afford more poise than heavier heavy weapons. Enough poise damage to break a greatsword user in a single hit, but fast enough that you can trade two blows for one against great hammers, great axes, and ultra great swords. It's in a sweet spot, and I feel confident in saying that this is hands down the best poise weapon.

                                                            This badly needs a hyper armor nerf. Easily has more than any other CGS, even Exile. An invader used this and tanked through my UGH swings using only R1 and fairly light armor.

                                                              One of the best invasion weapons. Stack 40 poise and 40 endurance with this thing, 2 hand it and just go to town on people. Gankers think they are invincible in groups, so they tend to simply mash R1 when they get near you. Just mash R1 right back, poise through everything and presto, phantoms are dead. You can almost hear their cries of disbelief: "B-b-but I pressed R1... I don't understand..."

                                                                *same guy who posted "OP af"*. Lol, "swing reaction". Who just... Throws out an r1 on a heavy weapon? No. The way you use this is to spam the WA when they get close as you'll FOR SURE hyperarmor through their attack and get the true combo. Then you throw out a few r1s as they'll be more passive since they lost hp. I had mentioned that the hyperarmor frames last into the next r1, do you even know what that means? It means you can't play passive punisher, you know, literally HOW you use SS's? If you play this way you literally shut everything down. It isn't just trading, that WA is instant, it is the real terror here. What can a SS even do if you are using the WA right? I love how you tards all act like you don't know this. Lets not play stupid to justify an ez mode that you guys like to use.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    I'm sure i'll get on-reflex dislikes from saying this, but: "OP af". The WA is instant, the reach is SO long, the damage is about the same as the exile greatsword (maybe more) and the speed of the swings is pretty quick too (is it faster than your average curved greatsword?). This is the latest ez mode weapon, it works everywhere and all you have to do is spam the true combo to win. This destroys ganks, you can't trade because it has great hyperarmor and damage and if you try to use a fast weapon it tends to have hyperarmor left at the end of the swing to continue into another r1 or use the WA. This is actually OP.

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      This thing looks like it's covered in*****. But besides the aesthetics, it is hella powerful. I am relatively convinced that this weapon beats the Murakumo for range, though if not they are at least tied. But besides that, S scaling in strength is beastly and allows it to hit like a truck. Also has good hyper armor, allowing you to trade through multiple straight sword and great sword hits. Also, if you delay a 3rd r1 after the r1x2 combo, it easily roll catches. Perhaps my favorite invasion weapon due to it's good damage, hyper armor, and not too bad swing speed (though make no mistake, it's slow). Like all Strength scaling weapons, prime candidate for darkmoon blade. Easily 3 hits for over 1,400 damage with 40/40 strength/faith.

Sure its parryable, but if it wasnt you may as well have a curse hack on with this thing. lol

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              • Anonymous

I honestly thought I'd be handicapped, but this loadout is working well enough to score me kills in PvP and keep me alive in PvE. What I want to know is why the only two aesthetically pleasing curved greatswords are covered in hair!
