The Crystal Greatsword's high base damage means that at the point where it first can be bought, it will be quite powerful and effective in both the Depths and Blighttown, being about equal to a Bastard Sword +8 in terms of attack power and moveset. However, it can't be upgraded or repaired, making it unsuitable for sustained use or high level play.

Cannot be reinforced.
Since it cannot be reinforced nor upgraded, this weapon doesn't see much use in PvP. When encountering a wielder of this weapon, extreme caution and measures must be used, since it is probably a modded version that deals about 1100 damage per swing in one hand, and will likely kill the opponent in one hit with a critical attack.
