The Bastard Sword is a greatsword in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

The standard greatsword is normally wielded with two hands due to its great weight.
Usually swung in arcs and effective against multiple foes. Far from ideal when fighting in tight quarters.

AvailabilityEdit

The Bastard Sword may be purchased from Andre of Astora for 3,000 souls.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Bastard Sword has good physical damage and scaling, and high staggering power (the standard of all greatswords). While slightly more powerful than the Claymore, its strong attack has less range, forcing the player to fight closer to the enemy.
