The Abyss Greatsword is created by ascending any Standard +10 greatsword, ultra greatsword, straight sword (other than the Broken Straight Sword or Straight Sword Hilt) or dagger at the Giant Blacksmith in Anor Londo with the Soul of Artorias and 5,000 souls.
Compared to its pristine self, the Abyss Greatsword has a distinct moveset, lower stat requirements, weighs one unit less, has a heavily deteriorated appearance, and deals purely physical damage. The strong attacks are reminiscent of those performed by Artorias himself.
|Fast 720° counter-clockwise swing with high starting lag. Despite its appearance, the attack only strikes once.|
|Player somersaults into the air before smashing the sword into the ground. High starting and ending lag. Can be parried despite what its airborne appearance suggests.|
|Jump Attack||Player jumps and swings the greatsword into the ground.|
|Running Attack||Spinning clockwise slash.|
|Rolling Attack||Quick downward swing.|
UpgradesEditRequires: Demon Titanite and 5,000 souls per upgrade.
