Soul Greatsword is a Sorcery in Dark Souls 3. To cast a sorcery, you must use a Staff or Special Weapons that can cast Sorceries.
Sorcery developed primarily for sorcerer-swordsmen.
Attacks with a greatsword formed from souls.
The ephemeral blade only exists as an extension of the caster, but its power is said to rival that of physical greatswords. Even the most obstinate magic purists may resort to this spell in times of crisis.
- Bought from Yoel of Londor or Orbeck of Vinheim for 5,000 souls
- Soul Greatsword inflicts (Spell Buff x 2) magic damage before resistances.
- At max cast speed (50 dex), this spell can true combo out of a two-handed Heysel pick R1. It might also combo out of a one-handed L1 (needs testing).
- Has wide horizontal range, making it good for crowd control.
- Fairly easy to dodge if the opponent sees the attack coming.
- It pairs decently with Farron Flashsword, as both spells add to a staff's moveset. Furthermore, since Flashsword can skip its cast animation so easily, it may combo cleanly out of Greatsword (needs testing)

Is this buffed by the Dragoncrest Rings or the Magic Clutch Ring?
I dont mean to be the omly one here who only useies healing magic but societies are ****ing coward
Mr M, Do you think we Should add Other Poise Catalysts for other Magic users?
Miyazaki: F**K that! y'know what we need instead? more FTH scaling sorcery staffs!
this is insanely good when mixed with heysel pick as the r1 from that weapon combos into this spell, also heysel pick in general is really good as it also combos into FFS, GSA, regular SA (wich at 60 int gets decent damage for the amount of FP that it cost and the cast timing is pretty fast) yall really should look into it
best sorcery let's be honest
It's very sad that From didn't consider to add a Faron Greatsword with more damage and the design of the Wolf's Knight Greatsword, or a Crystal Greatsword with even higher damage and the same design but fucced up with magic crystals like when you enchant your blade with crystal magic.
Do staves actually change the range like a few staff pages say?
Sure doesn't seem like it.
Look how they massacred my boy...
matters how much rezestent the enemy is to magci
how much dmg does it do???
You know what’s fun? The deacons versus a single sorcerer with this spell. It’s not the most effective at accomplishing the objectives, but it’s really fun to just mow down the deacons.
really hoping this would hit like a nuclear bomb like in ds2, but oh well...
I've always wondered, if you spell parry this will it act as a normal parry?
where can I get beginning items that would help fight
It's a neat reference to a previous game. But did you take a look at the game? 60% of the content is a reference to another game. This is copypasta: the AAA game. It's ridiculous and I don't know if the graphics can really hide how absurd it is.
From the looks of it, it seems this model is based off the King's Field Moonlight Sword. Even the description seems to point towards this.
Cast this after farron flash sword and it changes its appearance and uses a special stance for the casting animation. And it appears to gain some length I have no idea how to test it.
I usually don't play souls for the pip so for my uses this is one of the most handy spells around
While the Cleric's Candlestick is a piece of crap, you can perform a decent mix up in conjunction with this spell. If you land your two hit light attack combo with the sword, some people will habitually roll. So if you do R1, R1, and then cast this spell, it's possible to hit them at the end of their roll. I think they can just double dodge to avoid it, but it's good for punishing people who want to roll away and then start attacking again.Then you can mix it up by not casting the spell and simply going for more light attacks, punishing them if they expect you to cast the spell and try to interrupt you.If that sword wasn't crap, this could actually be a somewhat potent technique.
This needs poise, even at the last second it can be easily interrupted.
I shall use this sorcery to myself a Sorcerer Paladin! By the light of a million souls, come together to form.... THE SOUL GREATSWORD!
... the Deacons of the Deep boss fight, when dealing with hoards of enemies, Nevertheless I think the FP consumption should be reduced on mages overall to make them a little more viable. Right now the choiceof Ashen Estus over (healing) Estus is not complementing magic-play even in PvE. For instance, I feel the Uchigatana or any melee weapon has more viability in most situations - atleast early game - than seeing an FP bar going down so fast inexchange of such less damage.Magic is a luxury right now not bread-n-butter for mages.
We knew you well... Your AoE and PVP viability days are over.May your children shine, may your find peace in the waking world.And may from stop nerfing random ***** and ask for community input.
Well, how badly did they nerf it? Im sure it got a nerf if the already underpowered Farron Flashsword got one as well.Heaven forbid I play anything but a standard sword and shield knight.
pretty lame damage
Yoel dont has it in his Inventory ... ?
i know many -people say they like it but i disliked it i liked it better when it was just a energy beamthere is also a new spell dark edge which is a curved great sword and i hate the look of itthe dark version of soul great-sword was my favorite also by the fact it released beams now it looks lame as hellit wouldn't look so bad if it wasn't a curved sword but still why couldn't they keep the beams and the energy looking sword?
