The Majestic Greatsword is a greatsword in Dark Souls II: Crown of the Old Iron King.

In-Game Description

An ancient greatsword of unknown origin.
This sword was passed down through generations, until it reached Gordin, wandering knight of Forossa, and was lost upon his death.
Uncannily, every last one of the prominent swordsmen who inherited this weapon was left-handed.

Scholar of the First Sin updates the item description.

In-Game Description

An ancient greatsword of unknown origin.
This sword was wielded by the rebel Raime
before he was exiled, but in his shame he cast it
aside as he fled Drangleic. It was recovered by
Gordin, wandering knight of Forossa and was
thought to be lost with him.
Uncannily, every last one of the prominent
swordsmen who inherited this weapon
was left-handed.

AvailabilityEdit

At the bottom of the cursed tower before reaching the Foyer bonfire in Brume Tower, located in a metal chest. Caution should be exercised, as there are three Ashen Warriors in the ash on the ground that will attempt to ambush any unwary player as they go for the chest.

CharacteristicsEdit

As noted in the description, the sword has historically been wielded by left-handed swordsmen. As such, when the weapon is equipped in the player's left hand, it provides a different moveset, whereas compared to if it's equipped in the right hand, the weapon's damage is decreased.

One should take care to not use the strong attacks of this weapon too often, as it wears down its durability quickly, putting emphasis on needing to be watched carefully to ensure it doesn't break while in combat or using the Bracing Knuckle Ring to slow down the durability loss. This is easily noted as one uses the one-handed strong attack often, especially against mobs of enemies.

It has a B scaling with Strength when upgraded to +5.

Interestingly, when the sword is wielded in the right hand, the moveset mirrors that of the Claymore.

TriviaEdit

  • Its appearance and moveset alludes it to being the same corrupted greatsword wielded by Knight Artorias in Dark Souls. In a twist of irony, whereas Artorias' left arm was broken, all the future wielders of his sword were left-handed.
  • It is not possible to respawn the sword through the use of a Bonfire Ascetic due to it being found in a metal chest. One would have to proceed onto the next playthrough of the game in order to retrieve another one.
  • This weapon has a unique power stance moveset when dual-wielded with any straight sword or greatsword.
  • Interestingly, the Hidden Weapon sorcery cannot be used on this weapon.
