How to Get / Where to Find Greatsword of Artorias (Cursed)


Hints and Tips:

  • Give to Frampt to receive 50 souls.
  • When ascending the weapon, it will only be displayed as "Greatsword of Artorias", it will not say "cursed". To be certain of which sword you're creating, look at the stats, which are unique.
  • Once you make the cursed sword and view the description, you'll see that it's cursed.
  • This is one of the cursed weapons that can inflict damage against Ghosts.
  • Just like the Abyss Greatsword, it only requires Strength and Dexterity for the physical damage scaling, meaning that the sword is still usable even without meeting the Intelligence and Faith requirement, except it bounces back for every hit.

      I’m gonna make this sword only because of New Londo. Hate that place. I don’t like relying on a item you can’t properly farm to get through a place that will almost definetly kill you if you don’t.

        Y'all are really arguing over lore in a game where they call a character big hat logan because he has a big hat

              For anyone else who is an idiot like me :) The best way to know for sure which one you're making, is to only have a dagger/straightsword etc +10 in your inventory. Because the two types of greatswords: Cursed/Non-Cursed can only be made with entirely different types. The normal sword can only be made with the 'broken' sword types, while the cursed can only be made with the non-broken types. It's pretty typical of FromSoftware to not put much thought into the UX of these kinds of things, but that's the best way to make it out.

                BTW it is requires 18 in faith and intelligence to use properly. So even if you have a dex or strength build you will need those stats. Just an fyi. Personally i recommend getting the stats to wield it as early as possible as it makes new londo a breeze.

                  But it's only slightly better than a jagged ghost blade, slower, without bleed (do ghosts bleed?) and costs more than 2x souls and rare titanite to upgrade... so why??

                    " Greatsword of Artorias (Cursed) " the name is confusing , you think it is name (cursed ) when you trying to create it , but its not both of them " Greatsword of Artorias " dagger+10 = Greatsword of Artorias physical 178 ( this is the cursed , after you create this you will find in the description says its cursed ) broken straight sword+10 = Greatsword of Artorias physical 120 magic 85 (not cursed )

                      Note to anyone trying to make this: Its a GREATSWORD. not a straight sword, Not a curved sword, A GREATsword. You make it with a greatsword like this not a straight sword like this so now you know how to make it without having a derp moment.
