The Astora Greatsword is an ultra greatsword in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

This greatsword, bestowed only upon elite knights, is a relic of the ruined land of Astora.
Designed for a focus on thrust attacks, this sword is hard and sharp, but not unusually heavy.
Skill: Charge
Hold sword at waist and charge at foe. Use strong attack while charging to extend the length of the charge.

AvailabilityEdit

Found in the Cathedral of the Deep.

From the Cleansing Chapel, head toward the graveyard and follow the first pathway on the left. The sword is on a corpse in front of a big tombstone, guarded by a kneeling Reanimated Corpse.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Astora Greatsword is the lightest ultra-greatsword obtainable, weighing only 8.0 units. It is still very much capable of staggering and stunlocking opponents easily, despite the low weight, but the damage it deals will not be nearly as lethal as the notably heavier ultra-greatswords.

As the description implies, this weapon excels at performing lethal thrust attacks, and more so well-timed counterattacks. The Leo Ring is, for this reason, a natural complement to the weapon's moveset, turning the already-powerful thrust attacks into a force to be reckoned with.

It is unique in the fact that it utilizes the "Charge" skill, which is typically found on spears and pikes, and not at all on ultra-greatswords. This is indeed interesting, as during the animation, the player grabs the blade of the weapon; there is no guard for them to hold as they charge forward.
