Fastest method is to equip all Item Discovery gear possible and farm the Thrall near the Cliff Underside, just behind the area where the bonfire is, then dropping back down to the bonfire and repeat the process.
Despite having an average moveset, the Flamberge excels in its raw damage, while also being the only greatsword to inflict bleed and dealing purely Slash damage (with exception of the Stance strong attack).
This raw damage does have the penalty of a very poor scaling, but it is still very good, and its minimal requirements to wield it properly might make it an attractive choice for any player.
- If players have a quality Hollow build (40 STR / DEX / LCK), it's still better to infuse it with a Refined Gem than with a Hollow Gem.
- Holy Knight Hodrick wields this weapon.
