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 wanted to know what the max damage of the weapon was at softcaps, and oddly enough, both soulsplanner and mugenmonkey showed that this weapon doesnt scale with faith or int, only physical stats. could someone check ingame if that is correct ? it wouldn't be the first time that fromsoft shows fake scaling (like for the thorolund talisman having c scaling in faith but a flat magadjust of 165).

        With all these stat scalings, it makes me feel like this sword would be absurdly powerful if used during/after a NG+ or two. I know the R2s are slow, but all other attacks are the same as the BKS, and it feels like it has a slightly longer swing range.
        I know I’m looking forward to finding out just how hard this can wreck in PvE. Probably will use the non-cursed version for my later divine weapon, too. Has anyone tried this out themselves at like 40+ str, dex, int and faith yet and care to share their experience?

            Note of warning, through the Giant Blacksmith's Upgrade menu. It does not say whether it curse or not, go by the damage and stats displayed on here if you're confuse. (FYI this is from the Xbox 360 version, do not know if that changed for the other versions).

                Remember guys if you wanna make it a CURSED sword to kill ghosts you need a normal straight sword +10 before you do the ascension. If you do it at +9 or lower it won’t work! You’ll only be making a regular.

                  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.
