Ringed Knight Paired Greatswords is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3. It is part of The Ringed City.

Paired black greatswords wielded by the Ringed Knights.
The arms of early men were forged in the Abyss, and betray a smidgen of life. For this the gods cast a seal of fire upon such weapons, and those who possessed them.

Skill: Ember
Cross the twin timeworn greatswords to reignite a short-lived flame. A lightning-quick upward heave slices the very air, and transitions into normal or strong attacks.


Notes and Tips:

  • Cannot be buffed or infused.
  • Reinforced using Twinkling Titanite 
  • This weapon is extremely powerful if you successfully combo the L1 attacks.
  • The weapon skill starts off with a diagonal strike which then unleashes a short fiery projectile and can transition into an overhead leap R2 or a powerful thrusting attack with R1.
  • Acts much like the Farron Greatsword in which you can activate the L1 attacks anytime during a R1/R2 combo and vice versa.
  • This weapon is the only Paired Ultra Greatsword of the game.
  • Has a higher poise health value than other Ultra Greatswords. While all the other Ultra Greatswords have a poise health value of 27.3, the RKPGS has 30.8 poise health. This means you can 39.3 poise to tank through other Ultra Greats instead of 45.9. All of this applies to the Fume Ultra Greatsword, since it also has 30.8 poise health.

      How to never lose at PVP. Step 1: Don't have a direct hook up to your internet. Step 2: Distance your console or PC as far away until your internet is crawling. Step 3: Close your eyes and mash L1. Really fun to fight against and play with but it is hell to try to fight with lag and it's really common for users of this weapon to have third world internet... and names like gamer boi 420... which somehow makes it twice as obnoxious.

        Can be countered with crystal soul spear pretty much everytime cause of the long ass attack frames makes the user a sitting duck.

          The basic counters for this weapon are stomp and perseverance. To Reverse-counter this, use l1 very sparingly as using this will get you punished hard. Use your normal r1 because it's faster and gives you time to escape the weapon arts. You can combo that r1 into an l1. Use your running r1 as your primary source of damage, but never use it to trade or too often as it has miniscule hyperarmor; use it to catch people off guard. Try to hit them from afar with your weapon art, never follow up if initial slash doesn't connect. Switching between rolling r1s/l1s can trip your opponent up, use rolling l1 mostly then switch to rolling r1. These strategies should give you a really huge advantage over your normal playstyle vs said weapon arts. L1 CAN be used, but if you usually crutch the l1, I recommend not use it against said weapon arts.

              the spinning attack can catch people trying to get behind you. also i believe that all dual wield weapons are made to have the player mix and match special and normal attacks. ex: the L1-L1-R1 combo can sometimes catch people trying to roll away in the middle of your attack, and the R1 L1 R1 attack can sometimes surprise people because everyone is used to the Spam attack.

                  You can combo the l1 into the first part of the lfirst part of the weapon-art if your opponent is close enough! Deals the same damage, but allows for insane rollcatches with the weapon-art follow-ups.

                      K mai dudes I wrote a terrible comment not to long ago saying rkpgs should be purged like a***** head not know any counters to and generally acting like a dumbass My option has changed and for a while I’ve realized I was ignorant to counters Here are some for those who still have sal t flowing 1.chaos bed vestige, it bores holes int the l1 do to its slow nature, but stay at a decent range so u don’t get roll caught. 2. Daggers, just like all UGS the quickstep dagger is a HARD counter to them. 3.door shields, the strategy is to wait for them to come to u then start the door boi run of doom for a good 320-450 damage :). Beware of hatemail though as door shields are of course quite trollish. K ye I d like to say my opinion on all tryhard weapons have changed. I have no problem with them. Keep in mind I’m no elite player I’m only a silver, so those who are better plz do leave more specific counters as knowing counter is usually good for everyone. Srry I ever wrote such a********** COMMENT. Plz go dislike it i don’t know wat salt was in my veins.

                        Pro tip: if you're a low level ganker make your gang pull out this greatsword and you'll overwhelm invaders with ease.
