The Drakewing Ultra Greatsword is an ultra greatsword in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

A sword decorated with drake wings. Use strong attack to unleash its latent power.
The blade of this sword is split into two, and is best swung in smashing motions rather than slices.
Drakes are likely descendants of the ancient dragons, and although their strength pales in comparison to the what is described in legend, to mere humans they are still mighty beasts.

## AvailabilityEdit

The Drakewing Ultra Greatsword can be traded for with Weaponsmith Ornifex, in exchange for 1,500 souls and the Guardian Dragon Soul.

## CharacteristicsEdit

The Drakewing Ultra Greatsword is one of the lightest Ultra Greatswords (on par with the Lost Sinner's Sword and the Zweihander), weighing only 12 units. It shares most of its moveset with the Zweihander, and so players that are comfortable with it will feel right at home when wielding the Drakewing Ultra Greatsword.

Unlike most Ultra Greatswords, this weapon's scaling is mainly focused on Dexterity builds, making it an interesting option among the generally light-weight Dexterity weapons.

The Drakewing Ultra Greatsword features a special attack which consumes durability every time it is used. When the two-handed heavy attack is used, a green, glowing orb will be shot from the tip of the blade, dealing physical damage on impact.

Similar to other weapons with a projectile attack, the special attack will do considerably more damage if the weapon itself hits the target when it is executed, allowing players to deal massive damage with just one hit. Wearing a Bracing Knuckle Ring will increase the number of times the special attack can be used before breaking the weapon.

Perhaps the biggest downside of this weapon is that it is the shortest Ultra Greatsword in the game (tied in with the Ivory King Ultra Greatsword), and so it has quite a limited reach. However, being an Ultra Greatsword, it still has high poise damage and will still easily stagger groups of enemies with just one swing.

## TriviaEdit

The weapon's inventory icon shows the wings folded out. However, the wings are only folded out during the two-handed strong attack.
