The Firelink Greatsword is a soul-transposed greatsword in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

The Lords of Cinder linked the First Flame, and this Greatsword was wielded by their deific manifestation.
This coiled sword, found thrust in the bonfire, existed long before the throneless lords themselves.
Skill: Ember
The fading flame momentarily illuminates and launches itself forward.

AvailabilityEdit

Obtained by transposing the Soul of the Lords with Ludleth of Courland.

CharacteristicsEdit

Once wielded by the Soul of Cinder, the Firelink Greatsword is a fearsome weapon with properties that make it a strong weapon in the right hands.

It has quality scaling, increasing in damage based on Strength and Dexterity equally, and inflicts a flat amount of Fire damage with each hit. This makes it a useful weapon for chipping through a foe's shield, as well as inflicting high elemental damage without the need to invest greatly into Intelligence or Faith. Its moveset consists of horizontal and vertical swings, giving it good coverage against multiple foes as well as the ability to bring focused single-target damage to bear.

What sets the Firelink Greatsword apart is its skill, Ember. This skill allows the wielder to buff the weapon with additional Fire damage while launching a plume of flame, dealing tremendous damage with an attack while augmenting the weapon for subsequent follow-through. Used properly, it can devastate foes and give the wielder a strong advantage in battle.
