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.

      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

                      Good, fun boss weapon. Not as long as the (ultra) greatsword, but its sweeping R1s and thrust R2s make up for that. The most pure fun I've had in Dark Souls 3 was using this to fight the wolves in the Painted World DLC. They're fast and agile, but hitting them felt pretty easy with Lorian's Greatsword. Scaling is best for STR/DEX characters, but if I were to build specifically for this weapon, I'd put INT/FTH at about 15/15--just enough for utility spells like Hidden Body, and Tears of Denial. I'd be tempted to even put INT to 18 for Snap Freeze (though I'm still unclear regarding the interplay between fire and frostbite). My current build is at SL95 with 28 STR, 12 DEX, 27 INT, and 20 FTH, so it's is nowhere near maximizing the potential power of Lorian's Greatsword, but it still feels plenty powerful when taking this into the Ringed City on a regular NG.

                        use the weapon art to buff any other ultra gs and never use it use the profaned greatsword it's better in every way

                          No one gonna mention that the sword looks nothing like the image the game/wiki shows. The picture shows a broken crossguard facing away from the hands and a dull rusted looking blade. Where as ingame it's more of an orange glowstick of destiny with no crossguard and a weird indent on either side.

                            The image doesn't do this weapon's good looks justice. So far the second most fun I've had using a UGS in DS3 imo (Ringed Knight Paired GS is obviously #1)
