Gravelord Sword is a Weapon in Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered.


Sword wielded only by servants of Gravelord Nito, the first of the dead. Crafted from the bones of the fallen."
"The miasma of death exudes from the sword, a veritable toxin to any living being."

How to Get / Where to Find the Gravelord Sword




  • Give to Frampt to receive 100 souls.
  • Toxin build-up is 30 per hit, and once infected, Toxin does 5 damage per second for 600 seconds.
  • One and two-handed Strong Attacks are replaced by a thrust attack, compared to the other Curved Greatswords.
  • When held in the left hand, this sword can neither block nor parry, but will attack instead. Two handing can be used to block.
  • It is worth noting that while being wielded in the off-hand this weapon will only perform a standard slash for both light and heavy attacks; it will not perform its signature thrust attack, making it essentially useless for dual-wielding purposes.
  • This weapon can be acquired very early in game and is very powerful at low levels, though do not forget that you need an eye of death in order to acquire it (which can be picked up from behind the titanite demon).(You can kill the Bell Gargoyles with this weapon in only a few hits).

      How fast were you? Statuses take a few hits to inflict, and start wearing off between hits until you do. You would have to hit said enemy a bare minimum of three times with no obstructions and very little room for delays.

        I got the sword upgraded it to +5 used it on a weak to toxin enemy C resistance I think hit it like 6 times no toxin does it only work in PvP? The vids I have seen show the sword puffing out the toxic cloud mine does not.

            If you unequip the pants off a starter Knight, you can go fast enough to reach the sword (after a couple deaths setting up the path) as soon as you land in lordran for the first time (within the first 10min. Of the game).

                Had a funny moment last night. I started a new character in remastered and went and got the sword and rite of kindling. Anyway, I murder my way through the game and get to the parish and put down my summon sign since I'm in a helpful mood. I almost immediately get summoned and as soon as I enter, someone invades. Invader is rolling toward my bro, then suddenly stops and starts gesturing at me. I think once he saw I was there and what I was wielding he just gave up. He didn't even fight back as we stomped him.

                  I love how much damage it does, but i hate how hard it is to reach the platfrom to join gravelord covenant.

                    Been using this for a big chunk of the game on my strength build, but it has no decent scaling.. What should I switch it for? I find the Zwei so unbelievably slow. I upgraded the man serpent greatsword, but it still hits so much less than this gravelord sword.

                      I'm having a huge problem guys, i legit feel like the biggest idiot right now?! I started as a pyro, got my strength & dex both up to 13, went down the catacombs to obtain this sword only to realize i cannot wield it, even with two hands?! The requirements for this weapon are strength 24 and dex 13, so with strength 13 and dex 13 you should be able to 2hand it, right? I was checking for so many things but i still have no clue what's the problem.. -_-

                        The upgrade table is wrong as per usual. While I cant remember the exact number of demon titanite required... it definitely is not 5, I think it is nine

                          Very fun sword to use in pvp. It might not be strong from a "meta" standpoint, but toxic is so rare, that it generally causes immense panic whenever it procs on an enemy player. Which certainly fits the whole Gravelord theme.

                            A very devastating weapon for both early game PvE and low level PvP between SL20-30, simply upgrade it once into +1 and it'll become a powerhouse for curbstomping newcomers. On the other hand, it swings much slower than most weapon and is a little bit heavy, having the same weight as the Zweihander, so pay attention to the equip load, the timing for the swings, and when you can telegraph your attacks so your swing can hit your opponent.
