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 still wondering why they put 18 points of stat requirements and a C scaling on both INT and FTH whilst it doesn't do magical damage at all... How funny.

              I had a weird bug while wielding this sword in New Londo...basically, for some reason I cannot understand, ghosts were far more aggressive than usual and their aggro range looked wider. Somehow I made it to the room where you clim the ladder to reach Ingward, but before I could even get close to the room entrance I got aggroed by any single phantom around there and stunlocked to death. Granted, I had the starting warrior chest armor, with Elite Knight leggins, gloves and helm, but I had the wolf ring as well. Maybe it was too low poise, I thought, so I went back there with a full Havel set + Wolf Ring (Poise 161) and I still got aggroed the same way as before and stunlocked to death before I could even get into the room. Strange thing is that when I tried again, this time with a Zweihander equipped instead of Artorias Greatsword, ghosts were far less aggressive, had shorter aggro range (but this could be a placebo effect, as far as I know) and, wirdest thing, I was able to not be staggered by ghost, even rolling back to my previous armor set (Starting Warrior chest + Elite Knight helm, leggins and gloves). Anyone else experienced this?
