The Crystal Greatsword is a greatsword in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

A fully crystallized straight sword. How such a weapon was created is entirely unknown.
The crystallization boosts its attack, but makes the blade brittle. The sword cannot be used for long, as it cannot be repaired.


Sold by Domhnall of Zena for 6,000 souls.


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.


Attack Description
Weak Attack
Wide Swing from left to right, then another from Right to left. Low starting lag.

Overhead smash.

Vertical slash, beginning fom above, and then from below. Medium starting lag.

Rolling Attack Overhead Smash.
Kick Standard kick.
Weak Attack
Strong Attack
Somewhat quick horizontal slash.


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.
