The Claymore is a greatsword in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

This larger type of greatsword is normally wielded with two hands due to its weight.
This highly flexible greatsword can be used to attack in swings or thrusts.

AvailabilityEdit

The Claymore is found on a corpse on the bridge in the Undead Burg near the Hellkite Dragon.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Claymore is perhaps the most versatile of the Greatswords. It deals high damage and can stun-lock many opponents with ease. It can be obtained early in the game, swings fast for a greatsword, and has average scaling, making it a favorite for quality builds. It's one-handed thrust attack is also significantly faster than that of other greatswords capable of performing it. Wielded two-handed, its weak and strong attacks transition into each other well, allowing for fluid combos.
