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).

      PVE it's a good enough weapon. PVP, I'd say it is High Tier? or a very good Mid Tier? Not at the very Top, but good enough for sure. It's funny because I used to think this weapon was bad; I guess is so easy to get that you see a lot of bad players using it. But then I started to fool around with it and once I got the hang of it I was really surprised. It has a great move set, very balanced with an amazing Running Attack, a fine R2 and a simple but effective R1. Good for Dead Angles.
      Bad scaling. And it doesn't have the same range than a Murakumo (a better weapon for sure) but it's slightly faster.
      The Toxin effect in PVP is for the most part useless (as with all poisons is just too slow for Meta, 5HP p sec) but still is kind of annoying for the opponent, and even if it's just very slow damage psychologically still takes a toll with an unexperienced player.

          ("The miasma of death exudes from the sword,)
          and this means toxin
          so the games opening video states: (Nito unleashed a miasma of death and disease) which also means toxic and umm other sorts of sh!t
          """"this might be an evidence to those withered toxic dragons.they might be dragons that were beaten by nito''''
          hmmm strange

                I went on a good RNG craze on my first playthrough, getting the Black Knight Sword to carry me through the first areas, and right after getting the Titanite Catching Pole. They were such OP weapons on the start of the game and I never even thought they were random drops, but 100% chance loot. And then, I found myself the Gravelord Sword. It was instant love, definitely carried me through the rest of the early, mid and late game.

                  Am I crazy or dumb that I used this in my first ever DS1 Playthrough right from the start? A Youtuber from my Country made a video about the best weapons before the first boss and this thing looked badass to me. After using it I kinda thought it was op and eventually switched to the Claymore. Claymore best bud in DS1. But yeah, this thing is amazing but it's kind of a cheese weapon for new players like me. (yes I went through the fast catacomb run to get this thing without really knowing where to go, but in the vid the person just jumbled and skipped half of the level.) I think I needed 7-10 tries to get it but if you are new to this game and have trouble, get this thing. Other than that, the claymore is always your friend.

                      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).
