"Greatsword born from the soul of Gwyn, Lord of Cinder."
"As bearer of the ultimate soul, Gwyn wielded the bolts of the sun, but before linking the fire, divided that power amongst his children, and set off with only this greatsword as his companion."

Acquired from:

Hints and Tips:

  • Give to Frampt to receive 10,000 souls.
  • This sword can first be made on the second playthrough, because the Soul of Gwyn is not acquired until the endgame.
  • Forging the Great Lord Greatsword does not give it the same flame ability as when Gwyn uses it in the boss fight. There was a misconception that forging the sword gives it a fire attack like Quelaag's Furysword, but after many players have tried, the sword shows no fire animation or fire damage.

      It is slightly weaker than the Black Knight Sword, so if you have one don't bother with this. HOWEVER, it swings a bit faster than the black knight sword and the heavy attack slams your opponents down so it's worth a try if you find the black knight sword too slow. Still garbage tier weapon with***** scaling compared to the other boss soul weapons.

          I am disappointed I thought I was going to have fun swinging around a giant sword that was BETTER THEN THE SWORD I USED WHEN THE SWORD WAS UNUPGRADED you couldn't beat Pinwheel with the great sword fully upgraded and then I looked at the scaling and my jaw dropped. I wondered how would make this mess.

            It's incredibly disappointing that this doesn't even have faith scaling, or have some innate fire damage. A disappointing weapon for a disappointing boss, I suppose

              Would have been way better if augmentable with at least charcoal or Sunlight blade. Or had the Thrust style R2.

                You’d think for an endgame, NG+ exclusive weapon, this weapon would at least have similar scaling to the freaking claymore.

                  The best thing you can do with this is moveswap glitch this sword as a twohanded offhand-weapon with the fury sword in the main hand. That way you at least get cool looking fire attacks on rolls and sprints.

                    Thought this was gonna be some cool and overpowered sword. Was very dissapointed. Honestly, I'd much rather stick to the Black Knight Greatsword, Moonlight Greatsword or Greatsword of Artorias. Much better than this Claymore trying to be a better sword.

                      Worst decision you can make with Gwyn's Soul. Just go for Sunlight Spear if you're a Zappy Boi or take the 40,000 souls.

                        Viable for experienced players, newcomers should stay away from it OR train a bit with it before trying to main it. The R2 attack is all about timing and knowing your enemy, not impossible to use, there are worse weapons than that.
