The Farron Greatsword is a unique paired ultra greatsword in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Greatsword of the Abyss Watchers which is atypically paired with an unusual dagger.
The dagger is utilized as a wedge in the left hand while the greatsword is held in the right, a unique technique that was synonymous with the Undead Legion. Confounds foes in the manner of wolves hunting prey.
Skill: Parry
Deflect an attack when timed properly and follow up with a critical hit, executed with the dagger.


Obtained by transposing the Soul of the Blood of the Wolf with Ludleth of Courland at no soul cost.


The Farron Greatsword is a unique two-piece set with some interesting properties. Two-handed, its left handed weak attack consists of a devastating three-move combo; The user anchors the dagger into the ground, using it as a pivot point to make graceful sweeps and spins. The dagger can also perform a quick parry, enhancing the weapon's combat utility.

Players who can take full advantage of the Farron Greatsword's potential will find this weapon to be a powerful asset.


When two-handing the weapon, instead of wielding the sword with two hands, the user will instead wield the dagger in their offhand. Therefore, attacks performed with the R1/RB and R2/RT buttons will be identical to their one-handed versions.
