Hollowslayer Greatsword is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.
Greatsword used for a lifetime by a masked knight. Harbors the fears that lurk within the mind of Hollows, and is particularly effective against them.
Bestowed to a proper Mirrah knight long ago. Two-hand to execute special sword techniques.
While in stance, use normal attack to break a foe’s guard from below, and strong attack to slash upwards with a forward lunge.
Notes and Tips:
- Cannot be Infused or Buffed.
- Reinforced with Titanite Scale.
- Deals 20% bonus damage against Hollows;
- effective against a wide number of hollowed enemies, and even some bosses, throughout the game.
- This weapon's bonus damage does not affect hollowed players in PvP.
- When two-handed executes the same moveset as in Dark Souls 2.
- The weapon of Lucatiel of Mirrah, a NPC in Dark Souls 2 whose mask and armor set are also available in Dark Souls 3. The Sunset Shield available ingame also matches the appearance of Lucatiel's shield from Dark Souls 2 exactly.
- Hyper Armour begins earlier each consecutive 2 handed R1, up until the first animation repeats.
