Lorian's Greatsword is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.

Ultra greatsword of Lorian, Prince Lothric's older brother. Cast in smoldering molten steel, and stained black. 

Before Lorian embraced his brother's curse, he was a knight who single handedly slayed the demon prince, but the victory eternally scorched his sword with flame.

Skill: Flame of Lorian

Lunge forward to transform smolder into flame, and follow with strong attack to launch flame across ground.

      The burning rage I felt when I cashed in the Twin Princes soul, only for the greatsword to look nothing like it's art could've kindled the flame for a millenia.

      That art looks badass, a fragmented, serrated rusty blade vs. what can only be described as an asylum demon's vibrator.

        does anyone know why the icon for both this and artoria's sword looks nothing like the actual ingame weapon?

          I might be wrong but further testing makes me think the special stomp "Flame Of Lorian," weapon art actually has some hidden poise addition. At 25 poise I was able to take two hits from a great hammer so long as I was in the middle of using the art. I've tried it with weapons that have stomp and I never can pull it off as efficiently as I can with this sword.

            If you see this at SL99 in duels, and your dodging game isn't on point, RUN. You'll oft get three-tapped by it.

              Holy moly this UGS is the shittttiest of them all. And here I'm thinking about how terrific the struggle would be for some casul using this garbage sword to fight against godlike pkcs users. When other UGS (or perhaps all ds3 weapons) failed miserably against pkcs, you must be out of your damn mind to pick this shiit up.

                The image of this sword always confused me. The Icon itself looks like a flat steel sword while the model itself looks like a thicker Steel.

                In my opinion, the icon looks more like a Scorched Black Knight UGS than Lorians. Maybe it's just the effects but I'm not the only one confused about this.

                  It's a quality weapon that can shine midgame thanks to the fire damage and selfbuff. Only con is if you obtained it the game is almost over and rarely any boss left is weak to fire by then. All that makes it uninteresting to strive for. If you have a friend though just starting his run it's a perfect gift. And for ng+ players ofc.

                    Ppl should stop forgetting that this ultra's damage is mostly physical. Fire damage becomes a serious threat with the buff of it's wa, but it's still a big hunk of black, sharpen steel and hurts as such.

                      I would rather have the sword in the icon, this thing doesn't even look like an actual sword. It really fits the lore better, that he defeated the demon prince with it, but his sword was eternally scorched in flames.

                        40/60/60/60 = 775AR, 855with weapon art, 905 with Fire Clutch Ring. Scatters knights like rag dolls. Potentially the strongest UGS in entire game because of it's scaling from all stats. There is only one downside, you need Favor Ring +3 just to be able to perform 5th attack.

                          Ok straight up. This weapon has one of the best danages in the game at high SLs, it can rival a dark lothric GS and has 1 point more AR than a dark exile GS with 60/60/60/60. Not to mention the fire and sword can stack on the WA R2. Also it looks AMAZING and the lore is just as badass. 9.3/10, would definately shove up aldrich's ass again.

                            With 66 strength, 40 dexterity, 27 intelligence, and 45 faith this weapon has an AR of about 763, and the WA is 843
