Crystal Greatsword is a Weapon in Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered.

 

 

A fully crystallized straight sword. How such a weapon was created is entirely unknown."
"The crystallization boosts its attack, but makes the blade brittle. The sword cannot be used for long, as it cannot be repaired."

 

How to Get / Where to Find the Crystal Greatsword

 

Hints and Tips:

  • Give to Frampt to receive 1 soul.
  • Cannot be repaired.
  • Cannot be upgraded
  • Quite a useful weapon for new players going through the Depths and beyond. It has more durability than regular Crystal weapons and its attack power and moveset is roughly the same as a Bastard Sword +8. Buying one to use solely for bosses can make Gaping Dragon and Quelaag much easier solo, and even the Iron Golem for Dexterity focused characters.
  • Be wary when seeing this weapon in PvP, as it is rarely actually used. Instead, it is most likely a hacked version that deals ~1100 per swing in one hand. This weapon is especially deadly since, being a greatsword, it can easily break your poise and drain your stamina if you are trying to block its swings.

      The crystal greatsword seems to be effective in early game due to its low stat requirement and good damage but aside from this niche however, it's a mediocre pick overall due to the limitations to crystal weapons that are similar to said greatsword. It can't be upgraded nor repair, not lasting longer than something like the claymore, it doesn't deal enough damage for mid game and it is completely outclassed by the claymore. The claymore is lighter, deals more damage at the long-run and it's easier to obtain while also can be buff with an enchantment. Only use the crystal greatsword in mid game if you really want to find a cheap greatsword, but otherwise the claymore is always a better option.

        Can anyone confirm if this counts as a crystal upgrade path weapon in remastered, thus changing your weapon matchmaking to the lvl 4-15 range?
        I think I may have messed up my low level invasion character by buying this from Domhall.
        I had kept everything no higher than +5 to match with +0-11 weapon levels.
        I swear it seems like I don't find invasions as easily since buying it.

          I'm pretty sure hacked weapons proc a softban if you have them in your inventory in dsr, so this is only true if you are on the original.

            this weapon looks pretty cool, almost looks like a chinese jian without the crystals. is there like a 3d model of this sword out there without crystals? it would be interesting to make in my opinion.
