The cursed Greatsword of Artorias can be created by ascending any standard +10 greatsword, ultra greatsword, straight sword, or dagger (with the exception of the Straight Sword Hilt and the Broken Straight Sword) at the Giant Blacksmith in Anor Londo with the Soul of Sif and 5,000 souls.
While the Cursed variant of the Greatsword of Artorias does not scale as well or do as much damage as the un-cursed version in late game, it does benefit from having lower stat requirements, as well as having the rare curse effect, which allows it to hit the Ghosts of the New Londo Ruins.
Note: This form of curse is the auxiliary effect, and does not cause build-up of the status effect
The cursed Greatsword of Artorias shares the same moveset and average all-round scaling characteristics as the uncursed version. With average all-round scaling, the cursed version of the Greatsword of Artorias can potentially deal very high damage, but cannot be utilized to its full potential by more specialized builds.
